Celebrate Transfer Student Appreciation Week

During the week of Oct. 17-21, NC State will celebrate transfer students and their families with a series of fun events.

Transfer Student Appreciation Week is a nationally organized recognition of the unique experiences and needs of transfer students. The event is held every third week of October, and in 2022 it will be celebrated from Oct. 17-21. 

NC State’s campus is home to over 4,200 transfer students. Throughout the week, transfer students are invited to events that will help them engage with one another during fun activities, get better acquainted with the campus and surrounding community and enjoy some great food. All events are free to attend. Use and follow the #TransferPack throughout the week to keep up with all the action. 

Transfer Student Appreciation Week events are sponsored by the Transfer Connections Village in University Housing, New Student Programs, Goodnight Scholarships, Community College Collaboration and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences – Student Council.
