1. Why do you enjoy working for NC State?
I love the variety of tasks that are involved with my job. I have been with NC State for 25 years, since 1989.

Move-In Recap

students move to campusNearly 5,700 students descended upon NC State for the annual Move-In weekend August 16-19. Of those students, more than 3,200 moved to campus for the first time as freshmen. University Housing, Greek Life and other campus organizations helped students from across North Carolina and around the country move into 20 residence halls and four on-campus apartments.

Cutting Loose at Wolf Ridge

University Housing officially welcomed the first 400 students to Wolf Ridge at Centennial on Aug. 19, 2013, with a Ribbon Cutting ceremony. The festivities kicked off with the ribbon cutting by Chancellor Randy Woodson and University Housing staff members. A reception followed with cupcakes and other goodies. The chancellor also welcomed the first student residents of Centennial Campus to his neighborhood and promised not to invite all 400 students over for cookies at the same time.

Get Involved On Campus

Getting involved at NC State is an important part of your campus experience. Living on campus places you in the heart of the Wolfpack. You’ll be minutes from hundreds of programs, activities, organizations and more. Participation in campus activities will help you meet new people and develop lasting friendships.

RAs prepare to lead the pack

University Housing is dedicated to creating a positive experience for residents. This year, more than 200 students participated in the week-long Resident Advisor (RA) training prior to student move-in. Nearly 80 students are returning RAs with at least one year of experience and 11 students are returning for training as third-year RAs.
