Winter Welcome Week

Friday, January 5 — Saturday, January 13, 2024

NC State is full of traditions!

During Winter Welcome Week (WWW) you’ll begin to experience the best of NC State and create a foundation for a successful semester. As we welcome our new students to the Wolfpack community, WWW is your time to learn about your new home, make new friends, build your community, and explore exciting ways to engage in and outside of the classroom. WWW also welcomes back returning students, faculty, and staff, as we reconnect with old friends and build upon the excitement for another year at NC State. With over 100 events and activities taking place — there’s something for everyone.
