130th Math Department Anniversary Celebration

October 5 - October 6

Event Navigation

Save the date for a weekend anniversary celebration marking 130 years of mathematics education and research here at NC State. Mathematics courses were among the first taught at NC State when the university opened in 1889.

Harrelson Hall was the former home of the Department of Mathematics.

On Saturday, Oct. 5, attendees can enjoy interactive exhibits and presentations by faculty and students, talks by alumni, tours of SAS Hall, and a special evening reception in the James B. Hunt Jr. Library that will give alumni the chance to reconnect. The event will culminate in an anniversary picnic at nearby Pullen Park on Sunday, Oct. 6.

More details, including registration information, will be available soon.
