Native American/Indigenous Symposium


Your first step towards academic success at NC State University begins with your orientation to the university. The University requires all first-year students to attend New Student Orientation, during which you will be introduced to the academic opportunities available to you. As a continuation in your transition to NC State we invite you to attend the Native American Symposium. Students, faculty and staff members are excited to welcome you to the NC State community.

Through your involvement in the Native American Symposium, you will gain valuable insight into campus life from the perspective of Native American faculty, staff and students. You will have the opportunity to enhance your knowledge of self, develop transitional strategies for academic success and begin building your personal network of support. This orientation is an introduction to a variety of exciting academic and cultural experiences, which will challenge your minds. It’s a chance to learn about NC State University’s diverse  academic disciplines, offerings which push you beyond the ordinary by encouraging participation in independent study, major research projects, special seminars, scholars programs and forums. It is also a sampling of State’s cultural and social opportunities.

The opportunity is at hand to absorb all the ingredients, which have made NC State University one of the nation’s premiere institutions. Seize the moment and join us!

Registration will open in late April.

See you in August!
