NC State Paper Science Open House & Ribbon Cutting

Friday, September 7, 2018
Exact time TBD, morning start and lunch is included

Join us Friday morning to celebrate and experience over $1.5 million in gifts in kind that our program has received the last 2 years. Enjoy time with faculty, staff and students, learning about how we are moving our program and graduates into the future.  We have upgraded the Wolfpack Baby paper machine, added a lab super calendering unit, a new pilot scale crepe simulator unit, a full mill model simulator, paper testing equipment and much more.  Come and see how we are remaining strong in our traditional areas and developing our path forward in the areas of tissue, converting and digital packaging and printing. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn more about our research portfolio and watch the Wolfpack Baby Papermachine in action!  This event is open to all, free of charge and lunch is included thanks to our corporate partner WestRock.

Let us know that you are coming!  We provide transportation to campus from the Embassy Suites hotel for our program from 9 – 11:45 am and our lunch from 12-1pm.
