Students at North Carolina State were violently opposed to becoming the University of North Carolina at Raleigh. 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:11.390
We felt like we were a different campus. Although we were part of the university system we preferred a unique name. 00:00:11.390 - 00:00:25.388
We came to North Carolina State and we wanted it to stay that way. It was a compromise, which finally became North Carolina [State] University, 00:00:25.388 - 00:00:36.873
and they've dropped it now but at that time it said "at Raleigh." 00:00:36.873 - 00:00:41.704
