Welcome Weeks

NC State is full of traditions. Traditions that were built over time and will be part of shaping your college experience and your bond with NC State.

During NC State’s Welcome Weeks, you’ll begin your own tradition. How will you leave your mark on the ‘Pack? In August, we start the year off with Wolfpack Welcome Week and in January we mark the spring semester with Winter Welcome Week.

For our new students, WWW is our time to welcome you to the Wolfpack community and it’s your time to learn about your new home, make new friends and build your own community at NC State, and explore all the exciting ways to get engaged, in and outside of class. It is your opportunity to create a foundation for a successful semester!

To our returning students, faculty and staff, these weeks are a time to reconnect with old friends and build upon the excitement for another semester at NC State.

By engaging in WWW events and activities, we hope you will:

  • Develop a Sense of Community with NC State
  • Develop a Sense of Community with student organizations and small social groups
  • Develop the skills needed to thrive in the classroom
  • Identify university expectations
