KANNAPOLIS ó Wolfpack alumni and fans can buy a piece of N.C. State University’s new institute at the N.C. Research Campus.
For $100, people can purchase an inscribed brick that will pave the front porch at the N.C. State Fruit & Vegetable Science Institute. The four-story building, which N.C. State will share with Dole Food Co., is under construction and should open this summer.
N.C. State’s Pathway to Excellence brick campaign is similar to one underway by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for its new venture in Kannapolis, the UNC Nutrition Research Institute.
The two institutes will stand next to each other on the Research Campus, and the inscribed bricks will match.
Billionaire Dole Food Co. owner David H. Murdock is building the N.C. Research Campus on the ruins of an old textile mill in downtown Kannapolis. So far, six schools in the UNC System will have a presence on campus, plus Duke University and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
To buy a brick for the N.C. State Fruit & Vegetable Science Institute or to learn more, call 704-2509-5400 or email fvsi_info@ncsu.edu.
