Take a Free On-Campus Tour
The Onboarding Center is hosting free on-campus tours so employees can learn about campus landmarks and the history of NC State. Whether you’re a new employee or a longtime member of the Pack, please consider registering for one or more of the tours, and encourage your colleagues to do the same.
Tours of Centennial and Main Campuses
Join us April 28 at 1 p.m. and May 6 at 10 a.m. for a historical and informational bus tour that will cover Centennial and Main campuses. The tours will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Because the tour uses public transportation, tour participants must follow the face covering and physical distancing guidelines in place at the time of the tour. The tour will meet in the front lobby of the Joyner Visitor Center, 1210 Varsity Drive. Go to REPORTER to register for the April 28 tour or the May 6 tour.
Fitts-Woolard Hall Tour
Join us on May 5 from 10:30 a.m. to noon for a tour of Fitts-Woolard Hall. The building, which opened in the summer of 2020, is home to the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering; the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering; and the dean’s administrative offices for the College of Engineering. Check out the state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms used by the innovators from these departments. The tour will begin at Angel Plaza near the Oval Lawn, the large oval green space outside the building. You can register for the tour in REPORTER.
Memorial Belltower Tour
Tom Stafford, former vice chancellor for student affairs at NC State, will lead three tours of the Memorial Belltower at Henry Square. The tours will be from noon to 1:30 p.m. on April 27 and 29 and May 4.
The Belltower honors the sacrifice of NC State alumni who lost their lives in World War I. It has become a symbol of inspiration to the Wolfpack community. Powered by a lead gift from the Bill and Frances Henry family to the university’s Think and Do the Extraordinary campaign, the Belltower underwent an amazing renovation and restoration project that included adding 55 bells to the carillon. Space on the tour is limited, so reserve your spot as soon as possible. The tour group will meet in front of Holladay Hall, facing Pullen Road.
