The heart of the union is not locked in the steel and concrete of a building, but rather in the Union organization. The Union building is merely the instrumentality through which the union idea is accomplished.

Gerald O.T. Erdahl, Union Director 1949-1961

The University Student Centers has a rich history tracing its roots back to the early American College Union Movement. 1949 marked the arrival of the first union director at NC State, Gerald O.T. Erdahl, who trained at the Wisconsin Union under legend Porter Butts, father of the college union movement. In spring of 1951, the College Union was founded with comprising a board of directors, today’s Student Centers Board of Directors, and a board of chairmen, today’s Union Activities Board. These two groups carry the legacy of the original idea to enhance campus life at NC State. 1954 marked the opening of the North Carolina State College Union, later renamed the Erdahl-Cloyd Union.

Today, the college union idea thrives with various departments and divisions coming together in multiple facilities to enhance and transform student life on campus. Coupled with the efforts of hundreds of student leaders and student employees, the University Student Centers strengthen the campus community and provide a vibrant campus experience for students to explore, grow and connect.   WATCH: Role of the College Union Video

The University Student Centers is a proud member of the Association of College Unions International.
