Within the walls of Daniels Hall, significant research has occurred in plasma physics, wave transmissions, aeronomy and laser studies. Until recently, it had housed the Career Planning and Placement Center and International Programs. The building is named after Josephus Daniels (1862-1948), editor of the Raleigh News and Observer.

Criticism of government was one of the paper's major missions. A frustrated Republican in the General Assembly once threatened, "We are going to take the state capital to Greensboro and leave nothing in Raleigh but the State Penitentiary, the State Insane Asylum and Josephus Daniels." To this the editor replied, "These are the three institutions which are necessary to keep Republicans straight."

Daniels served as Secretary of the Navy in the Wilson Administration during World War I and was appointed ambassador to Mexico by President Franklin Roosevelt. He was actively involved with NC State as a member of the Watauga Club which helped found the college and served as a trustee who participated in nearly all the public functions of the institution.
