In terms of student enrollment, North Carolina A&T State University (NCA&T) is one of the largest Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) in the nation. The university is the nation's leader graduating the largest number of minorities with degrees in engineering and technology. They boast an impressive array of well known alumni like the American civil rights activist and Democratic Presidential nominee (1964 and 1968), Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr., American businessman/hair care entrepreneur Dr. Joe Dudley Sr of Dudley Products, physicist/Nasa Space Shuttle Challenger astronaut Dr. Ronald McNair, and the Greensboro Four (aka Greensboro Sit-Ins) - the nonviolent resistance movement that took place in the 1960s as a part of the African American Civil Rights Movement. By the way, there is a beautiful sculpture of the Greensboro Four in front of the University Gallery.
For travelers visiting the campus, there are several cultural and fun things to do. If you enjoy the performing arts, then the Paul Roberson Theater is the place to go. There's almost always a performance to catch. If you like dance, then try to catch performances by the E. Gwynn Dance Company. If visual art is your thing, then there's the Mattye Reed African Heritage Gallery which displays an impressive collection of African artifacts. For music lovers there is the Jazz Ensemble, the Gospel and University Choir and the Lyceum Programs.
If you're ever in the area during the Fall season, try to attend the annual Homecoming event....maybe even one of the largest revenue generators for the state ...and...some say it's the "Greatest Homecoming on Earth".
