Wanna help students pay for their education? Buy a T-shirt from the NC State Bookstores, have lunch at one of the University Dining facilities or play a round of golf at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course.
Those are just three of the outlets run by Campus Enterprises, a division of Office of Finance and Business that gives its proceeds back to the university for merit/need-based scholarships and student support programs.
In December, Campus Enterprises returned approximately $1.2 million to the university from its 2013 proceeds, a slight increase from 2012. It raised the total amount given to the school to more than $4.5 million since the division’s inception in 2009.
Other campus outlets under its umbrella include trademark licensing, student center operations (for Talley, Price and Witherspoon), Rave! Catering, WolfXpress Print and Copy and the Wolfpack One Card. Campus Enterprises is also leading the $120 million renovation of the Talley Student Union.
The first phase of that project opened in October, offering new dining options for students, faculty and staff. The second phase is slated to be opened this winter.
“We understand the financial challenges to obtaining a college degree, and we are proud to allocate a significant portion of our proceeds to help our students in their pursuit of a degree from NC State University,” said Dan Adams, associate vice chancellor of Campus Enterprises. “We are grateful to our students, staff, alumni and fans for supporting us throughout the year to make this contribution possible.”
