NC State Alums Put Degrees, Hearts to Work on Talley Project

A guest post from Lisa Perkins, Vice President, Marketing and Communications for Rodgers Builders, Inc.

Starting with Rodgers Chairman B.D. Rodgers, Wolfpack pride is rampant on the Talley construction site.

B.D. Rodgers, named the College of Engineering’s Distinguished Alumni in 2009, graduated in 1949 after serving in the European Theater during World War II. In 1963, with $5,000 borrowed from his life insurance policy, a truck and one superintendent, he founded Rodgers Builders, Inc., today one of North Carolina’s largest privately owned companies.

“I’m grateful to NC State for the highly regarded engineering program they offered when I attended, and still do today,” says Rodgers, noting that he often refers to his old textbooks for answers to construction questions.

He joins Jeremy McGinnis, PE (2002), and Wes Spurlock (1999), both of Rodgers; and Thomas Daye (1993) of DayeCo, in fondly calling this campus “home.” Joint Venture Rodgers Russell DayeCo serves as construction manager for the Talley project.

“Being back on campus every day brings back a lot of great memories,” says McGinnis, project manager. “NC State is a very special place for me and I’m proud to be a part of a project that will become a new landmark for our University.”

“It’s great to be back and reminisce about my time on campus as a student, but this project is also giving me a new perspective and appreciation of what it takes to make a successful semester or school year,” says Spurlock, superintendent. “It’s very interesting to see and be involved with the things that go on behind the scenes that allow the campus to function.”

Rodgers actively engages in building the capacity of the minority contracting community. Joint-venture partner DayeCo is one of a number of companies Rodgers is currently mentoring.

“Our approach to mentoring is designed not only to help build increased industry capacity,” says Pat Rodgers, Rodgers’ president and CEO. “Our program also seeks to develop an organization’s internal strengths, systems, and skills. The result is greater mission fulfillment, community impact, and organizational sustainability.”

“As an almost-20-year alum, it’s an honor to come back and do this project with NC State and Rodgers, because you get an opportunity to show the University the skills you learned here,” says Daye, president of DayeCo Construction. “With B.D. being an alum, and the other NC State alums here, this is like coming back home.”

North Carolina State University and U.S. Bank Combine Campus ID and Prepaid MasterCard, ATMs on Campus

RALEIGH, N.C.  and MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.  (April 18, 2012) – North Carolina State University (NC State)  and U.S. Bank have partnered to offer the Wolfpack One Card, a campus identification card that doubles as a prepaid MasterCard® card, to the incoming freshmen class in June 2012.  Current students, faculty or staff members can upgrade starting in Fall 2012. As part of the contract, U.S. Bank will also deploy ATMs on campus.

U.S. Bank is a leader in offering multiple banking services to students, faculty and staff on university campuses, including dual-purpose banking and ID cards, but this is the first time that the company has combined the ID with a prepaid card. The card can be used for purchases wherever debit MasterCard cards are accepted.

“This relationship provides a significant upgrade to our existing card program, giving our campus population a convenient card and banking program when combined with MasterCard’s worldwide acceptance,” said Dr. Dan Adams, associate vice chancellor for Campus Enterprises at NC State.

“Our partnership with NC State offers students and staff of this nationally-recognized university the convenience and security of having a single card that operates as their campus ID and a card they can use to pay for purchases,” said Kevin Morrison, senior vice president at U.S. Bank. “With U.S. Bank’s prepaid MasterCard functionality, approximately 34,000 students and 8,000 staff members now have the ability to receive a direct deposit from their employer, the financial aid office or their parents and to spend those funds on or off-campus. They also have the benefit of U.S. Bank’s online tools so they can easily stay informed and in control of their finances.”

The new Wolfpack One Card continues to provide on-campus functionality, including meal plans, the AllCampus debit account and door or parking gate access, to name a few.

The Wolfpack One Card is free for new students and $10 for current students, faculty or staff members who wish to get the new card. The card has no enrollment or monthly fees, and no minimum balance required to keep the account active. U.S. Bank offers email and text alerts to keep cardholders informed about account activity – such as ATM withdrawals, processed deposits or low balances – and access to a secure website (online or via their mobile phone) to view account balances, check transactions and make changes to the account anytime.

Parents, an employer, or the university financial aid office can deposit funds electronically, as can any other Wolfpack One Cardholder. (Students electing to receive funds from multiple sources are required to have a Deluxe account, which is free of charge.) Cardholders can withdraw money for free at merchants where debit MasterCard cards are accepted and at the 23,000 U.S. Bank or MoneyPass-branded ATMs.

NC State ID Card/Office Gets New Name

RALEIGH, NC (April 18, 2012) – The NC State AllCampus Card office — and its ID card — have been renamed Wolfpack One, it was announced today by Dr. Dan Adams, associate vice chancellor for Campus Enterprises.  The name change was precipitated by a new relationship with U.S. Bank that will enable two debit account programs to be accessible from the card, among other features, one being the AllCampus Network.

“We want to make the many benefits of the card to be as clear as possible,” said Adams. “Giving the card and office a unique name independent of our AllCampus debit account program will allow the two debit accounts – AllCampus and U.S. Bank Debit MasterCard – to reside under the Wolfpack One Card umbrella.  It also gives us an opportunity to create a name that is uniquely NC State.”

The Wolfpack One Card Office is located in the West Dunn Building.  It will move to Talley Student Center in June 2012.  For more information about the Wolfpack One Card Office, visit onecard.ncsu.edu

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.

NC State Dining is a service of Campus Enterprises, the lead division for retail and hospitality on the NC State University campus. For more information, contact Jennifer Gilmore at 919.513.3017 or via email at jhgilmor@ncsu.edu.

Park Alumni Center Hosts Got to Be NC’s “Battle of the Champions” Culinary Championship Semi Finals and Grand Finale

October 18, 2016 — The Dorothy and Roy Park Alumni Center will host two events associated with the Got to Be NC Products’  Competition Dining Series, “Battle of the Champions.” The Park Alumni Center is located on NC State’s Centennial Campus and is a prime destination for reunions, receptions, parties, and seminars. It is also home to the State Club Restaurant, which is open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The “Battle of the Champions” competition spans six major North Carolina cities to find the most competitive chefs in North Carolina. Chefs compete at regional events over a course of several months, culminating in regional events held November 11 – 13. The semi-final event pitting the winners from November 11 and 12 will take place at the Park Alumni Center on November 18. The Grand Finale pitting the winners from November 13 and November 18 will take place November 20.

The intense competition will consist of two teams with three chefs, battling each other in a blind dinner format. Each team will have to use the ingredients presented to them the morning of the competition. The ingredients presented to the chefs will be  “Featured” North Carolina ingredients.

Guests have the honor of tasting two three-course meals, in a blind competition format. Ticket purchases give the option of sitting in the main dining room, or the mezzanine seating, which is in a more private balcony seating area. Guests will not know which course came from which team, in order to keep the competition blind. Chefs will be eliminated in a single elimination format. Guests judge the dishes based on presentation, aroma, flavor, creativity, and more. The voting will take place digitally, and guests will ultimately decide the winners.
