The economy university students live in today is one fueled by oil; as petroleum reliance has grown through the years, others have searched for a more environmentally-friendly and renewable alternative fuel source, specifically for transportation.

Dan Neil, a Pulitzer Prize winning automotive critic for the Wall Street Journal, spoke on campus about the electric car Monday afternoon.

Neil is a Wolfpack alumnus, of the class of 1986 with an MA in English. He credits his success during college to professor Michael Grimmwood. Reminiscing about his time on campus, he recalled that college life was wild and fun, much like it is today.
