NCCU Centennial bash today

Bookmark and Share

A year of observances linked to N.C. Central University's 100th birthday come to a close this afternoon.

The university is throwing itself a birthday bash that starts at 3 p.m. and will include some words from dignitaries like Gov. Beverly Perdue.

Festivities today are on the Brant Street Plaza just off of Fayetteville Street. Among the highlights: the dedication of a new Centennial Garden and the re-christening of the old Holy Cross Catholic Church, relocated earlier this year from its original spot along Alston Avenue.

It will now be known as the Centennial Chapel.

Events today begin with the ringing of the NCCU Bell. A representative of the U.S. Postal Service will unveil the new NCCU Centennial Cancellation stamp.

And perhaps most importantly, there will be cake.

So come on out.
