State Club Open to All at Lunch

There will be big changes at the State Club in 2016. As of Monday, the restaurant located in the Park Alumni Center on Centennial Campus will now be fully open to university staff, faculty, students, Alumni Association members and the general public for lunch.

Hours of operation are from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday-Friday.

The full-service restaurant will be managed and operated by Campus Enterprises, with food prepared by Rave Event Services, the university’s catering and event services provider. Campus Enterprises also operates The Terrace Dining Room at the Carol Johnson Poole Clubhouse across the street and other full-service dining options on campus.

“These facilities, located on Centennial Campus, are a tremendous asset to our university,” said Dan Adams, associate vice chancellor for Campus Enterprises, “and we look forward to providing the excellent service our campus has come to expect.”

Membership at the club will not change, Adams said. Dinner and special events—such as the Red & White Festival, Wine Society, holiday brunches and watch parties—will continue to be member-only events.

State Club membership is no longer required to reserve meeting space or hold events at Park Alumni Center. Club and Alumni Association members will have preferred pricing.

“As the premier catering operation at NC State, Rave Event Services has a reputation for its quality and innovation as well as handling events large and small,” said Rick Sederholt, general manager of The State Club.  “The new business model will feature the absolute best of what NC State’s award-winning dining, catering and event services program has to offer.”

Reservations are recommended but not required for lunch. To accommodate groups of eight or more, however, call 919-515-0500 to ensure parties are served quickly.  To reserve rooms or plan an event at the State Club, visit or call 919-513-8368.
