Welcome Spring-Entry Parents!

Please Note: New Student Orientation will be closed for Winter Break beginning at 12:00pm on Monday, December 23, 2013 and will re-open at 8:00a.m. on Thursday, January 2, 2014.  New Student Orientation staff will respond to emails and voice messages upon returning on January 2nd.

At North Carolina State University, we view the relationship we have with our students' parents and families as a partnership - a partnership created to help students be successful. We also know that when parents are informed, students benefit. Therefore, we would like to invite you to a special program just for parents during New Student Orientation.

The Parents' Orientation program runs concurrently with New Student Orientation. There will be some sessions where both students and family members will be together, and other times when the groups will hear presentations specific to them.
