Wolfpack Weekend 2018

The two-day campus visitation program seeks high school students who are academically motivated, involved in their communities and interested in science or environment fields.

Students standing outside on Wolfpack WeekendRegister now for Wolfpack Weekend, a two-day campus visitation program targeted towards high-achieving high school students from backgrounds underrepresented in math and science fields. The 2018 event will occur on Friday, June 22, and Saturday, June 23. The program, which is open to all students interested in the sciences, is hosted by NC State’s College of Sciences and College of Natural Resources.

Organizers are seeking students who are academically motivated (such as being in the top 25 percent of their classes and taking honors and AP courses); involved in their communities; and interested in science or environment fields. This event is focused on disciplines only in the College of Sciences and College of Natural Resources and is therefore not the best fit for students interested in engineering (with the exception of Paper Science and Engineering in the College of Natural Resources).

Students in the program experience a weekend living on campus, touring the city of Raleigh, getting a glimpse of academic and cultural life at NC State, and meeting faculty and students. The schedule of activities features interactive offerings that give participants a comprehensive view of life at NC State as well as various majors in our colleges. 

Program eligibility and registration process (first-come, first-served basis):

  • Rising juniors: 3.25 unweighted GPA
  • Rising seniors: 3.5 unweighted GPA and minimum 600 SAT Math (26 ACT Math)
  • Complete registration form
  • Pay a $25 non-refundable fee. This fee is not payable until attendees receive their registration confirmations. This fee officially reserves attendees’ spots in the program. Otherwise, this program is completely free for students. NC State provides housing, meals and other materials (details provided when students are accepted) for the weekend. Travel expenses are not paid.
