Fall International 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. While students are attending Student Orientation, family members can attend Family Orientation.

The first-year family program will be held Thursday August 13 through Friday, August 14, 2020, and the transfer family program will be held Friday, August 14, 2020. Additionally, a campus tour will be offered to international family members on Wednesday, August 12 (details and sign up form coming soon).

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.
