Engineering’s Crown Jewel
Work continues on Centennial Campus' next iconic structure. Fitts-Woolard Hall will open its doors in summer 2020, putting some of the College of Engineering's most impactful research on display and standing as an impressive complement to Hunt Library.
Homegrown Talent Helping Fitts-Woolard Hall Rise
Along with more than 300 alumni donors helping to fund construction, Fitts-Woolard Hall is benefiting from the expertise of several NC State engineering alumni working on the project.
Emily Caporali’s Belltower memories began before she ever enrolled at NC State, and though she graduated in 2017, she is still making extraordinary memories at the site – with help from her fiancé Chase Timmons and her longtime friend, retired vice chancellor of student affairs Tom Stafford.
A Century in the Making
After nearly a century, the Memorial Belltower’s bells are on the way, part of a completion and restoration project that will launch this fall and is made possible by the generosity of Bill (’81) and Frances Henry.
Celebrate the Belltower
Built to honor the alumni killed in World War I, the Memorial Belltower has become a symbol of inspiration and a centerpiece for the Wolfpack community. Now, we’re calling on you to celebrate its next milestone by sharing photos and memories from every era and occasion before May 31.
Sharing a Key to NC State’s Past
Whether telling surprising stories while leading tours of the Memorial Belltower or unlocking its door for surprise photos, retired vice chancellor Tom Stafford serves as a keeper of the flame of Wolfpack spirit.
Fitts-Woolard Hall: One Year Later
Since it opened in 2013, the James B. Hunt, Jr. Library has stood out on NC State’s Centennial Campus for its modern look, sustainability and integration of technology. Soon, it will be joined by another iconic structure.
Honoring a Leader on Her Retirement
For nine years, Debbie Yow has strengthened the foundation of NC State sports. In addition to stronger finishes in competition and increased success in the classroom, the program, supported by many donors, has enjoyed several facilities openings and upgrades during Yow's time as athletics director.
