Student Life

Unforgettable moments, unbreakable bonds and unending traditions begin here. See how we connect students with the wider Wolfpack.

Make Yourself at Home

When you’re part of our Pack, you’ll always have a place to call home.

Our division strives to create a safe environment for students to live, learn and thrive. Across campus, you’ll find housing options ranging from residence halls to village communities to apartment complexes. Added bonus? Our residents get around-the-clock support from dedicated staff and live in close proximity to campus resources, so many see improved grades and retention.

Here, you’ll reap the benefits of living alongside people with different backgrounds and worldviews. And by investing time and talent into your community, you’ll build the soft skills employers are looking for and productive citizens need.

Never a Dull Moment

On this campus, we’re always thinking and doing big things. Stay in the loop and see what’s next.

Just 3️⃣ days until Commencement! Today we're highlighting Jenny Ngo, who will earn an undergraduate degree in psychology and plans to enroll in a master’s program for PA studies before ultimately working in the healthcare field. 

At NC State, Jenny has been involved in @ncstatefsl, the Pack Ambassadors Program, @ncstatecounseling’s Mental Health Ambassadors Program, and as an undergraduate research assistant for psychology professor John Begeny. She has also been involved with @ncstatetriocollegiate.

“TRIO is AMAZING! The advisors have really prepared me for what’s next and have kept me on track to pursue my future endeavors,” Ngo said. “TRIO had various professional development workshops that helped me through all four years of my undergraduate career. The advisors were readily available to answer any questions when I needed it. TRIO has not only assisted me academically, but helped me through some pretty tough financial situations because of COVID-19 and guided me to the right resources. Without TRIO, I probably would have been so lost!”
Finals are done. All aboard for a well-deserved summer break! 🚌
Just a week until Commencement! Meet another of our grads, Noah Jabusch 🎓.
Noah will earn degrees in physics and math and plans to attend the University of Minnesota in the fall to begin working towards a Ph.D. in physics. At NC State, he has been a member of the Society of Physics Students, a staff columnist for the @ncsutechnician, and president of the Society for Undergraduate Mathematics (SUM) Club. He is also in the Honors Program (@ncstateuhsp).

"The primary way I feel the Honors program has helped me is teaching me how to question even "authoritative" sources like class readings, as well as value my own perspective on a topic. Going into physics research, pushing back on results you find questionable is a key component of the job and moving science forward, so I'm immensely grateful to my time in Honors seminars and doing capstone research for helping me with this skill."

Find Your People

NC State is filled with bright minds and diverse perspectives. But among thousands of students, it can feel hard to find where you belong. That’s why we help make a big campus feel smaller — and connect you with other people who love what you love.

No matter what you’re interested in, you’ll discover like-minded peers here. Get involved in a student organization. (They run the gamut from academics to service opportunities to club sports and beyond.) Build your leadership skills through Student Government and Greek communities. Or help bring some of the Wolfpack’s most iconic events to life with the University Activities Board.

Your future friends are waiting.
