    Students are invited to the College of Textiles Annual Open House this Saturday, March 21st from 10AM – 2PM. This is a great event to attend and learn more about our programs and resources available to students at NC State University.

    We will host a variety of information sessions throughout the day, along with the ability to witness our labs open and operating. There will also be continuous tours of the College throughout the day.

    If you or any of your students watch Shark Tank, you might have seen Sharon Bui, Co-President and Marketing Director of Frill, jump into the tank to pitch her company to the sharks. Attend Open House to hear about her experiences on Shark Tank and how being a textile graduate helped her throughout the process.

    Also, Dr. Renzo Shamey, professor and internationally renowned color scientist, will explain the science behind #TheDress. Is it blue and black or white and gold?

    Please take a look at our website to review our program and you can plan your day using the Guidebook App. We look forward to having you on campus and I look forward to meeting you.
