Experience NC State

Experience NC State is a virtual event designed exclusively for admitted students to help them make the decision to attend NC State. Students will discover all the opportunities that await them when they become part of the Wolfpack! Each Experience NC State event will include two days of academic sessions, a student panel, as well as access to many other resources to help students decide if NC State will be their home for the next four years.

Registration is required. Students can sign up on their wolfPAW account.
