Over the past year, N.C. State has collected private gifts from corporations totaling $73.6 million, which has increased the University to third in the nation.
This puts NCSU ahead of UNC Chapel Hill, Stanford and Harvard. NCSU ranked eighth on behalf of corporate gifts last year.
'This is an excellent opportunity for students here at State to take advantage of. We have access to better computers, more scholarships and better classrooms,' Gabriela Rangel, a freshman in communication, said.
While this high rank for corporate gifts looks appealing for the University, Ed Hand, director of the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations, said he believes that these gifts are strictly for the enhancement of student education. "
