Timeless, With a Modern Touch

About 15 months ago, a construction fence went up around NC State’s Memorial Belltower. Now, the restoration and completion of this Hallowed Place — built to honor alumni lost in World War I, and a symbol and rallying point for the university — is almost finished.

Opening the Doors of Fitts-Woolard Hall

Fitts-Woolard Hall hit another milestone July 24, when the College of Engineering took "beneficial occupancy." At approximately 225,000 gross square feet, NC State’s newest engineering building represents the crucial next step in uniting the college on Centennial Campus. The gradual process of moving in starts Aug. 3 for the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering, the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and the dean's administrative office. Learn more about the building phase-in and ongoing fundraising opportunities.

Memorial Belltower Completion and Restoration Project

The current Memorial Belltower project — set into motion by a transformational gift from Bill (’81) and Frances Henry to the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign in November 2017 — is adding bells and interior stairs that were never installed. It also restores, upgrades and improves this vital symbol of the university community’s past, present and future. View our new interactive map to see progress and future plans.
