Wolfpack Welcome (Back) Week

Second-year students are invited — and encouraged — to attend many of the in-person Wolfpack Welcome Week events that they might have missed out on in 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Class of 2024 didn’t quite get the same Wolfpack Welcome Week experience as many of their fellow NC State students. That’s why this year, second-year students are getting their own in-person Convocation ceremony and are invited to all of the Wolfpack Welcome Week events that were either canceled or held virtually when they joined the Pack last year. 

Wolfpack Welcome Week takes place Aug. 12-21. You can view the full schedule and create a custom schedule of events using the NC State Guides app. In the meantime, here are some of the events that were specifically designed for or might be of interest to the Class of 2024:
