October 5, 2010 (Raleigh, NC) ”The Chancellor's Ice Cream Dream,"¯ an event to commemorate Chancellor W. Randolph Woodson's installation, will take place October 27 on the Brickyard from noon to 12:45 p.m. The event, sponsored by University Dining, Student Government and the Chancellor's Installation Committee, will unveil the new Chancellor's Choice¯ flavor of Howling Cow ice cream, our new chancellor's personal creation.
The free event is part of a week-long celebration of the Chancellor's Installation and will highlight sustainability efforts in the NC State Community through Chancellor Woodson's strategic planning effort focused around cultivating a campus community that is locally responsive and globally engaged. To showcase these efforts Chancellor Woodson will be conducting a walk-through of the Campus Farmer's Market, held Wednesdays in the Brickyard by students to help build a local food economy within the University.
The ice cream sundae, expected to be N.C. State's largest, will be created using 75 gallons of Howling Cow Ice Cream and will serve an estimated 2,500 people. It will be served using 100 percent compostable bowls, spoons and napkins. Chopped peanuts will be donated by Mackey's Ferry Peanuts from Jamesville, N.C., a vendor at the Campus Farmer's Market. Whipped topping will be donated by Alamance Foods from Burlington, N.C.
Chancellor Woodson will address the crowd briefly at 12:15 p.m. before the sundae is served.
