August First-Year Student Orientation

New students and parents congregate in Talley Student Union for orientation.

Welcome, Class of 2026!

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 in becoming a part of the Wolfpack, we invite you to attend a First-Year Student Orientation session. 

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.
