Photo by Roger WinsteadThe Dorothy and Roy Park Alumni Center, built on the southern shore of Lake Raleigh, is the realization of a 20-year dream at NC State. With 59,000 square feet and a prime Centennial Campus location, the building features Italian marble flooring, double curving staircases and a grand reception room with 28-foot ceilings, crystal chandelier lighting, walnut-trimmed fireplaces and a full wall of windows onto the lake.

It is members’ on-campus destination for reunions, postgame receptions, parties and seminars—and it’s a hub for activities related to the Lonnie Poole Golf Course and Chancellor Randy Woodson's residence.

The State Club is the exclusive event planner and caterer for the Dorothy and Roy Park Alumni Center. Members of The State Club are eligible to use any of eight spacious meeting rooms throughout the facility, all fully equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual capabilities.
