The North Carolina State University Honors Village is a living learning
village that comes from the partnership of University housing and the University Honors program. Students admitted into the program have the option of applying to three dorms on the eastern side of campus; Becton, Bagwell, or Berry, also known as the “honors quad”. Aside from housing some of the students who are members of the honors program, the quad is near most classes, Clark dining hall, and a campus C-Store. Students who participate in the Honors program have the option of applying to be a UHP (University Honors Program) Ambassador as long as one semester has been completed, have a 3.25 cumulative GPA, and have been to one Honors seminar.
Incoming freshman are paired with upperclassmen also in the honors program in order to help them adjust to NC State and living in the Honors village. Another benefit of being in the honors program is priority status when registering for classes. This is good for freshman because you will not have to worry about a class closing due to a late registration date.
There are many academic events held by the program on campus. On this list includes this events such as book clubs, resume building workshops, and and used text book sales. Aside from academic events, there are cultural, service, and social programs as well that are open for all students to participate in. There are so many ways to meet new people who are in the Honors program and also those individuals who are not and just come to have some fun.
There are certain requirements for prospective students. One must have at least a 1300 on their SAT (critical reading and math portions only), and a 3.75 on a 4.0 grading scale. Each application is reviewed twice by faculty and students will know whether they have been accepted usually around the middle of March.
