January 28, 2022: Summer Programming Update

NC State returned to normal operations for the fall 2021 semester, and NC State is continuing to monitor current trends of COVID-19 infections throughout our city and state. Currently, New Student and Family Orientation programs and the Summer Start program are planning to move forward with an in-person format for summer 2022. Should the decision be made to change these plans in response to COVID-19, New Student Programs will communicate with students and families as soon as information is available.
