Building A Legacy

Fitts-Woolard Hall is beginning to take shape quickly on NC State's Centennial Campus, thanks to the generosity of more than 300 donors and a transformational naming gift from industrial engineering alumni Edward P. Fitts and Edgar R. Woolard. The College of Engineering has raised more than $47 million (of a $60 million goal) for the public-private project. Alumni and friends still have a chance to make a gift that will have a lasting impact on thousands of future students and faculty.

Two of a Kind

Edward P. Fitts Jr. and Edgar S. Woolard Jr. began a friendship based on their mutual love for NC State, their appreciation for the paths that their engineering degrees started them down and a common goal: to make the university, college and department where they studied extraordinary. Most recently, the two Eds' $25 million gift to help fund construction of Fitts-Woolard Hall is the largest gift to a campus building naming in NC State’s history.
