August First-Year Family Orientation

Welcome to NC State!

The Office of New Student Programs welcomes you to NC State University, a community of achievers, rich in tradition and academic excellence. To assist you and your family as new members of this community, we invite you to attend a Family Orientation session. These sessions are designed specifically for parents and families of first-year students.

During the program, you will be able to:

  • Get better acquainted with the academic programs and campus services offered to your student.
  • Gain insights into the potential adjustments your new college student and your family will face.
  • Meet NC State staff, current students, and other parents and family members.

August Orientation is a make up session for students who cannot attend their college or program’s designated sessions in June/July. Review the information below to help prepare for your session, and contact New Student Programs at new-students@ncsu.edu or 919.515.1234 if you have questions.
