Social and extracurricular activities on campus and within the Raleigh community create a collaborative, fun atmosphere for students. Through student organizations and professional development opportunities, you’ll make connections at NC State that will prove invaluable long after graduation.

Having those tight-knit relationships with your peers really lends itself to a more collaborative environment for learning. If we didn’t have great instructors, we would have to rely on those to experience significant growth. But here, we get both. I think that’s pretty amazing.
