Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Riddick Stadium

Riddick Stadium at North Carolina State College was named in honor of Dr. Wallace Carl Riddick, who served as president of the institution from 1916-1923 and was later the college’s first Dean of Engineering. The Stadium is the home of North Carolina State’s Wolfpack and is the center of a number of activities in addition to football games. It has a seating capacity of approximately 20,000 and has a commodious field house at its southern end.

(editor’s note: SAS Hall was built on the site of Riddick Stadium in 2009. It is home to the department of mathematics and statistics, one of the academic departments which has recently vacated the doomed Harrelson Hall. Of Riddick Stadium, only the “commodious field house” still stands — for now.)
