NC State Dining Unveils New Dining Plans for 2017-2018

NC State Dining is introducing new meal plans and features to our program for the 2017-2018 academic year. The changes are designed to provide more flexibility and value to our students.

“Our Freedom Pass plan has been our most popular meal plan, so we decided to build on its foundation to create options that have broad appeal depending on the level of coverage a student desires,” said Randy Lait, senior director for hospitality services. “We’ve also added new features that make them even more flexible, such as more meal credits, two lunchtime meal periods per day and guest meals. The new plans have been received positively by student leaders, so we feel confident our students will be very excited, too.”

Three new meal plans – called Anytime Plans – feature all day dining hall access, meal credits and guest passes that can be used in the dining halls and include 100 dining dollars:

Weekday Plan | all-day dining hall access and 8 meal credits to be used Monday – Friday each week, plus 100 Dining Dollars and 3 guest meals per semester

Everyday Plan | all-day dining hall access and 12 meal credits each week, plus 100 Dining Dollars and 5 guest meals per semester

Deluxe Plan | all-day dining hall access and 15 meal credits each week, plus 100 Dining Dollars and 8 guest meals per semester

For students who desire fewer meals, NC State Dining will offer one meals-per semester plan:

Block Plan | 150 meals per semester, includes $100 Dining Dollars

Commuters and students living in on-campus apartments or Fraternity/Sorority Housing will still be able to purchase the Commuter/Apartment plan:

Commuter/Apartment Plan | $750 Dining Dollars per semester; 5% discount at the register.

Lait added, “Students will now have the option of an early lunch or late lunch meal period. Instead of only being able to swipe once for lunch, students can now swipe once between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., then again between 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. This will bring the number of meal periods each week to 35, providing many more opportunities to use meal credits.”

Students will also be able to use a meal credit to purchase Howling Cow ice cream in Talley Market.

The changes are in response to customer satisfaction surveys, social media, and feedback from students. The new features eliminate many of the “use it or lose it” aspects of the old plans and lost meal credits due to the longer lunch meal period. It will also provide more opportunities for students to use the dining halls not only as a place to eat, but a place to gather more freely with more students having all day access built into their plan.

Students will be able to sign up for the new meal plans beginning March 13.

“As one of the leading college dining experiences, we are committed to meeting the needs of the students we serve,” added Lait.

Talley Student Union Wins City of Raleigh’s Sir Walter Raleigh Award

September 20, 2016 – Talley Student Union was recognized for its outstanding contributions to the character, environment, and appearance of the City of Raleigh, at the annual Sir Walter Raleigh awards held September 7, 2016. The awards ceremony, which was held at the Contemporary Art Museum, recognized new projects in the categories of Residential, Commercial, Historic Preservation/Rehabilitation, Public Facilities and Spaces, Landscape Design, Public Service, Community Impact, Innovation.

More than 220 people attended the celebration to honor the twelve new facilities. The Sir Walter Raleigh Award first began in 1983, and since then has presented more than 200 awards annually selected by the Raleigh City Council from a pool of applicants.

Talley Student Union took the award in the public facilities and spaces category, having gone through a four-year, $120 million renovation completed in June 2015.

Talley’s design transformed a 1972 closed-off, Brutalist facility into an exciting, interactive and interdisciplinary hub for student-life experiences, the campus community and surrounding Raleigh neighborhoods. The reconfigured building advances a new model for student centers through landmark form and an emphasis on shared and flexible spaces.

The original structure was turned inside out, opening it to its surroundings and the continuous flow of campus life. Every facade was transformed, providing much-needed room for growth and making important architectural and material connections to campus. Environmental and economic factors led to the preservation and reuse of the original steel structure.

Students were engaged to inspire architectural strategies of transparency and movement that welcome users and visitors. Layered interior and exterior spaces facilitate circulation yet allow areas for both collaboration and contemplation. A central, sky-lit atrium houses a multistory wood sculpture of the university’s mascot. Extensive glazing and screening infuse interiors with light and promote connections to nature. Prominent landmarks at each corner orient students and visitors to interior function. The iconic Technology Tower echoes research underway on campus and marks a future pedestrian bridge. High performance glass and curtainwall facades are utilized in the most public areas. Glass frit patterns and terra cotta louvers provide a modern translation of the university’s use of brick.

Sustainable building features integrate into the landscape to bring environmentally conscious thinking to daily campus life with extensive daylighting, water efficient landscaping, a 50,000-gallon cistern for irrigation, high-performance glazing, recycled content materials and indoor air quality measurement. A LEED Silver Certified building, Talley performs 25% more efficiently than comparable baselines and answers student and university demands for environmental stewardship.

Talley Student Union has become the premiere destination for connecting and engaging on campus. It is also a landmark area hub that ignites enthusiasm and inspires university culture.
Durham firm Duda|Paine Archects designed the building, with Atlanta-based CooperCary designing the interior spaces.

Talley Student Union Team Recognized for Outstanding Facility Design

NC State Student Centers, MHTN Architects, Duda | Paine Architects, and Cooper Carry, Inc.  have been honored by the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) with a 2016 Facility Design Award for the  renovation and expansion of Talley Student Union. The award was created to encourage and recognize excellence in the design of student-centered facilities that support campus community building and student success.

NC State Student Centers accepted the award along with the design team on Tuesday, March 22 at the ACUI National Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. ACUI is a nonprofit educational organization that brings together college union and student activities professionals from hundreds of schools in seven countries.

“We strive to create a clean, safe and welcoming environment for all campus community members,” said Tim Hogan, NC State Student Centers director. “Visitors and colleagues have come from around the globe to see our facility as they consider their own unions.  Receiving this award is an honor and stands as a model for blending community and academics.”

Talley Student Union is not only a place for programs and performances, but also serves an important role as a campus healing space as students have gathered for vigils honoring the lives of fellow Wolfpack members.

The design and operations team engaged a diverse array of stakeholders and partners, each adding their own invaluable input in the development of flexible and inclusive spaces. Students were consulted heavily and included in the design process to ensure that their needs were addressed.

“Diversity isn’t just a buzzword, it interweaves in everything we do,” added TJ Willis, assistant director of the NC State Student Centers. “Diversity of thought, perspective, person and space. It’s in everything.”

In addition to serving as a campus connection point the facility was also designed with sustainability in mind. The  U.S. Green Building Council recently designated the building as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building at the Silver level. Reusing materials from the previous structure reduced costs and landfill waste associated with building an entirely new student union.

NC State Brings Home Win Against UNC-Chapel Hill in Chef Throwdown

Another throwdown on Tobacco Road on Friday, January 15; the Wolfpack challenged the Tar Heels on more than the basketball court.  Facing off in the inaugural Collegiate Culinary Challenge, NC State took on UNC-Chapel Hill in a kitchen throwdown pitting both universities’ professional and student culinary teams against each other.  

The competition took place on the top floor of UNC’s Lenoir Hall. Student leaders, including members of NC State’s Foodie Group, Student Government and NC State University Student Centers, took the ride over to Chapel Hill to cheer on their fellow Wolfpack competitors.  Each team was given one hour to prepare their dishes. After a hard-fought competition, the results were split. NC State came through with a win in the professional competition, while UNC narrowly edged out a victory in the student competition.

“It was great opportunity to expand my culinary skills,” said Madison Breen, who was a member of the NC State student culinary team. “We learned so much from the chefs.”

Students and administrators were treated to a diverse menu of locally sourced ingredients, many of which originated from the NC State campus. The NC State Agroecology Farm supplied some tasty vegetables, while Howling Cow donated dairy items.

There are hopes to grow next year’s Collegiate Culinary Challenge to other ACC schools.

“We would love to see the event expand into a Big Four challenge that also includes Duke and Wake Forest, which were unavailable this year,” said Shawn Hoch, associate director of NC State Dining at NC State.

NC State’s professional chef team and student participants included:

  • Chef Cory Dougherty, CEC | One Earth World Cuisine
  • Chef Mark Turner, CEC | Catering Executive Chef
  • Chef Adam Smith | On The Oval Culinary Creations
  • Chef Eddie Wilson, CEC, CCA | Talley Executive Chef | Event Organizer & Student Team Coach
  • Madison Breen |  Masters | Higher Education
  • Kaitlyn Williams | Bachelors | Biochemistry
  • Vaarun Ramasamy | Masters | Aerospace Engineering

NC State University Student Centers Recognized for Inclusive Excellence

 

NC State University Student Centers at NC State University is the 2015 recipient of the  Edwin R. Golden Award for Inclusive Excellence given by the National Association of College Auxiliary Services (NACAS).   

This award recognizes outstanding campus leadership, activities, and/or programs promoting cultural awareness and inclusion.

From groundbreaking in 2011 to completion in 2015, Talley Student Union at NC State University has been renovated with one clear goal: to create an inclusive space for students, faculty, staff and campus visitors from all walks of life.

“Great care has been taken in the creation of diverse campus community centers including GLBT Center, Women’s Center,  Multicultural Student Affairs, and Chaplains’ Cooperative Ministry, explained Tim Hogan, director of the NC State NC State University Student Centers.

Elizabeth Snively, marketing manager for the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity, added:  “The campus community centers hum and thrive on a daily basis with their service to a diverse campus population that includes undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and community members. They provide a rich array of programs, events and support services throughout the academic year.”

Diversity is expressed throughout the union; taking different shapes and forms. The Cultural Hearth, which serves as a center for diversity-related programs has become a community hub for many campus groups. One Earth World Cuisine, which serves foods from various cultures and ethnicities, as well as customized catering for any dietary, religious or cultural group request. This award adds to the list of accolades the Union has received since since its Phase I opening in October 2013.  

“The old Talley was very transactional, It wasn’t a place to hang out, “ added Hogan.  “Now it’s a serves as a second home, and students have immediately taken advantage of the space that’s available.”

Hogan and Dr. TJ Willis, assistant director of NC State University Student Centers, were invited to present at the NACAS National Conference on November 2 in San Antonio, Texas.
