The Witherspoon Student Center is named after Augustus M. Witherspoon to honor his dedication of mentoring students while serving as an outstanding researcher, professor, and community leader. Augustus M. Witherspoon was the first African American professor at NC State and the second African American to receive a PhD from NC State.
The Witherspoon Center was completed in the fall of 1990 and is the location of the NC State African-American Cultural Center, Student Media, and the Campus Cinema Films. The center was intended to replace and expand several facilities in the existing Student and Cultural Center.
