For a general overview of orientation events, please reference the descriptions below. Specific details for each event will listed in your orientation schedule. Don’t forget to check your folder to find out information about your immigration check-in, academic advising appointments, and immunization appointments.

Orientation Support

Before arrival, exchange students will be contacted by their Orientation Leader(s). Orientation Leaders work with small groups of new international exchange students to help them prepare for their arrival at NC State.

Students who have studied abroad in past semesters will also be helping with orientation events. If you see one of these students, ask them where they studied abroad!
