Ready to Think and Do?

Our college helps you explore the big ideas and ask the big questions. We'll help you prepare to live your dreams, make a difference and participate in a global society.

You'll be among some like-minded spirits. Your assumptions will be challenged. You'll stretch and grow. You'll work hard. You'll fall down, and learn something in the process of getting up again. And you'll find the journey extremely rewarding.

See Yourself Here

Our 4,200 students include many from throughout North Carolina, across the country and around the world. Some arrive at our college from high school or from community colleges. Others transfer from various universities or from various colleges at NC State. We welcome veterans, working professionals and those who are continuing their education. And we support and encourage a growing number of students who are pursuing their master's and doctoral degrees.
