The wait is over. The Roaden University Center expansion is scheduled to open Thursday in conjunction with a ribbon cutting and birthday party for Tech’s mascot, Awesome Eagle.  

The golden eagle has been Tech’s mascot since 1962. The mascot’s name was changed from “Golden Eagle” to “Evil Eagle” until 1985 when “Awesome Eagle” was officially adopted, according to tech’s website. 

The RUC grand opening and the launch of the “I Heart Tech Students” campaign is scheduled for dead hour on Thursday. The event will follow with free pizza, drinks, cupcakes, music and exclusive “I Heart Tech” shirts.

The dedication will be given by Tech President Phil Oldham, and announcements will be made by the office of University Advancement on the opening.
