Packing Up Pre-Arrival Series

Packing Up Pre-Arrival Series

Packing Up is a series of virtual pre-arrival sessions that cover topics of importance to incoming international students. Held in the months prior to arrival, sessions leverage the expertise found on NC State’s campus to address topics like academic success, student life, professional development opportunities, immigration updates, and the admissions process. Through Packing Up, we aim to begin introducing international students to the tools, resources, and information they will need to be successful at NC State.


Upcoming Sessions for Summer and Fall 2022

All sessions will take place via Zoom from 8:30am to 9:30 am Eastern Time.
