  • Library of the Future: The Hunt Library 
    • A great research library is more than collections, technologies, and comfortable workspaces–a great library inspires. Its architecture and technology create spaces that encourage collaboration, reflection, creativity, and awe. At the core of the vision for the Hunt Library is the ability for our students, faculty, and partners to immerse themselves in interactive computing, multimedia creation, and large-scale visualization—tools that are enabling revolutionary ways to see and use information.                                                                                       
  • Textiles of the Future: Wilson College of Textiles and the Nonwovens Institute
    • As the only college in the United States devoted entirely to textiles, the Wilson College of Textiles is uniquely poised to educate new leaders, support industry and advance research within this evolving and expansive field. Learn how they have transformed the textiles industry and tour the facilities where our industry partners come to innovate. You’ll also visit the Nonwovens Institute, the world’s first accredited academic program for the interdisciplinary field of engineered fabrics and see their state-of-the-art pilot facilities.
  • Future Ready Farms: Lake Wheeler Road Field Laboratory  
    • Agriculture built North Carolina and remains the state’s largest economic driver at $87 Billion. No other U.S. region or state is as uniquely positioned as North Carolina to drive the agricultural innovation required to feed, fuel and clothe a growing population. Today’s farms are using technology and innovation to make data-driven decisions and to change the way crops are produced. Visit the Lake Wheeler Road Field Laboratory, just a few miles away from campus, for a tour focusing on modernizing research stations and building future-ready.  
  • Centennial Campus Guided Walking Tour
    • Join us on a one hour guided walking tour of NC State’s award-winning Centennial Campus. Learn about the history, layout and master plan of the campus. See how the campus is physically designed to increase creative collisions between students, faculty, corporate, and government employees. Comfortable walking shoes and attire are suggested.
