After much anticipation, Talley officially opens
September 10, 2015 | Emma Lampe, Technician Correspondent
The long-awaited Talley Student Union celebrated its grand opening Wednesday with a luncheon, public ceremony and open house.
A single trumpet got the attention of the crowd as Chancellor Randy Woodson spoke about Talley Student Union and its namesake, Banks C. Talley, Jr.
Following Woodson, student leaders introduced and publicly welcomed and thanked the namesakes of spaces in and near Talley Student Union, like Thomas H. Stafford.
Aerial dancers performed over the side of the balconies, representing the versatility of the open space above the lobby. Following the performance, members of the NC State marching band came and played the fight song. The band then closed the ceremony with the alma mater, uniting students, alumni, faculty and staff.
