The Bulletin is proud to bring back our popular “Where’s the Wolf?” contest. It’s all part of our effort to honor NC State’s 125th anniversary by reviving a hallowed Bulletin tradition.
We started the monthly contest back in the early years of the Bulletin’s electronic edition. Back then, in 2007, we wrote the Bulletin on giant pieces of fabric and fed them into a vacuum-tube powered mimeograph machine. The machine spit out a series of tiny ones and zeros that were then converted into Web pages using a slide rule and a twin triode Doerle regenerative receiver, which had a nice glow but tended to overheat. Ah, the good old days.
We now create the Bulletin with lasers, but some things never change, including the corny hints we provide to help people guess Mr. Wuf’s location. This week all we’re going to say is that you could hunt main campus all day and night and never find the wolf. He could be east of Java, for all you know.
And now, for those newbies on campus, here are the strict rules for our contest:
- First, figure out where on campus the wolf is pictured.
- Second, send us an e-mail with your guess by Tuesday, May 1. Be sure to include your name, phone and department.
We’ll randomly select one of the correct entries and deliver a cool Wolfpack prize to the winner. Good luck!
