North Carolina State University
With historical strengths in engineering and textiles, it is perhaps most widely recognized as one of the three anchors of North Carolina's Research Triangle, together with Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It is also the largest university in the University of North Carolina System.
Architecturally, NCSU is known for its distinctive red brick buildings and the "belltower." Due to oversupply, odd brick statues dot the landscape, a large section of campus is paved over with brick (University Plaza, a.k.a. "the brickyard"), and most sidewalks are also made with brick.
