About the Project

Composite of various I Am NC State 24 Instagram Posts

I am #NCState24 is a collaborative Instagram account showcasing the uniquely original NC State Class of 2024. The project serves to not only chronicle the first-year transition to the University, but to celebrate what makes NC State such an innovative and creative place to call home. As each week passes, two different  new students will have the opportunity to show the #WolfpackNation not only what makes NC State unique and original, but also show who they are and tell their story of college.


New NC State students hold the account with two goals in mind…

  • to Reflect: Your goal throughout the week is to visually show the NC State community your thoughts, feelings, and experience.
  • to Share: Throughout the week tell your story of how you came to fall in love with NC State.


To help you get started, here a few suggested themes to consider … think of them as a scavenger hunt or a checklist, but feel free to be open to other sources of inspiration.
