WolfTreks Predeparture Information

WolfTreks sends a predeparture email that provides participant profiles of our travelers. It’s a fun icebreaker for everyone. Who was at NC State at the same time? Who work in similar fields. Who has similar hobbies? Who has children and grandchildren? Submissions are optional, but we’d love to hear from you!

Please answer the questions below and write a brief biography. Couples may combine your biographical sketches into one. We would like to include photographs, so we ask that you also send a photo, too. Below is a sample biography that will stimulate your creative juices.

Electronic submissions save you time, save us time and help to ensure the accuracy of the information that’s included. However, if you prefer to mail a copy of this form, mail it to: NC State Alumni Association, WolfTreks Travel, Campus Box 7503, NC State University, Raleigh, NC 37695.

Please respond as soon as possible.
