Previous Belltower celebrations

Since its completion in 1937, the Memorial Tower has stood as a symbol of identity for North Carolina State University, a timekeeper for tradition and a perpetual memorial to NC State students who gave their lives in defense of their country. As well as a memorial, the tower is a rallying point for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the university community.

The Belltower is lighted for holidays that honor our veterans, such as Memorial Day and Veterans’ Day, and to celebrate NC State’s proudest occasions and achievements.

The tower will also be lighted for events celebrated by the campus community:

  • Spring and Winter Commencements.
  • Welcome Week Finale — Packapalooza.
  • Celebration of Faculty Excellence.
  • Founders Day, NC State Remembers – an annual day of remembrance honoring our Founders and members of our North Carolina State University community who have passed away.
