Extraordinary Experience

At NC State, education is all-encompassing. Your support enables us to give our students the forward-thinking skills and opportunities they need in order to thrive in the real world.

Discovery and learning occur across fields, disciplines and programs at NC State. By giving our students access to hands-on educational opportunities such as internships, study abroad and service learning; world-class libraries; and thriving arts, social, athletics and cultural programs, we provide them with new perspectives that add even greater value to what they learn in the classroom.

Whether they share community in one of 16 themed Living and Learning Villages; participate in an Alternative Service Break trip; conduct undergraduate research; work at an industry internship coordinated by the Graduate School; march with the Power Sound of the South; participate in a thriving fraternity or sorority; or win an athletics championship that lights the Belltower red, NC State students build important skills during their time here. They learn confidence, independence, creativity, teamwork, time management and perspective.

Private support — your support — makes all of this and more possible. Through our growing culture of philanthropy and our highly successful Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign, more and more members of the Pack are experiencing all that NC State has to offer.

Here are some of their incredible stories.
