Spring Orientation Partners

Each spring New Student Programs coordinates the university’s collective efforts to welcome and assist new students and family members through its Orientation programs. In spring 2019 we saw the largest group in recent years which included the second cohort of  Spring Connect students:

  • 454 first-year students who brought 509 family members (*we anticipate around 350 students in spring 2020)
  • 223 transfer students who brought 214 family members

The programs would not be possible without the countless hours of involvement and support from numerous campus partners. Whether you are presenting a session, providing hospitality, advising new students, or coordinating other activities during the program, we are grateful for your efforts to ensure students and families have a successful transition to NC State.

If you have any questions about Student or Family Orientation programs, contact Cameron Hill (Associate Director of New Student Programs) at clhill4@ncsu.edu or 919-515-8286.
