NC State is a big place. And with so many prospective students — and their families — visiting NC State these days, it’s no surprise that some get lost.
So if you come across a prospective Wolfpack student wandering around campus, be sure to point them in the right direction. The friendly Undergraduate Admissions people are strategically positioned to assist students with on-campus tours, self-guided tours, virtual tours, college-specific sessions, and special topic sessions.
But it’s important to remember that none of these services are offered in their Peele Hall offices. Think of the folks at Peele Hall as the wizard behind the curtain, pulling the administrative levers that keep the admissions machine running smoothly.
Face-to-face work takes place in the public spaces of the Talley Students’ Union and the Joyner Visitor Center. Here is a summary of the services and where prospective students can find them.
Information session and visit
Prospective freshmen and transfer students who have not yet applied to NC State are invited to attend an on-campus admissions information session and student-guided campus tour. Campus tours are offered Monday through Friday from Talley Student Union.
Self-guided campus tour
Prospective students who stop by campus during the week and have not signed up for a campus tour can visit the Talley Student Union or the Joyner Visitor Center for information on a self-guided tour.
Prospective students visiting campus on a weekend or college vacation can stop by Talley Student Union or the Joyner Visitor Center to pick up a self-guided business card.
Self-guided campus tours come with a video playlist featuring current students. The video playlist and self-guided tour highlight our well-known student spaces on NC State’s main campus, including the Talley Student Union, Wellness and Recreation, and the DH Hill Jr. Library.
On-Campus and Virtual Information Sessions
Admissions offers a variety of on-campus and virtual options to help students understand what it’s like to live and learn at NC State. Follow the links for registration information:
