The Office of Parents and Families Services is proud to provide parents with special opportunities that invite families to campus to experience many of NC State’s time-honored traditions alongside their favorite Wolfpack student. 

With a variety of events and activities held throughout the academic year, signature events include Parents and Families Weekend, Spring Fling and our First in Family Honorary event.

Additional programming events are developed in collaboration with campus partners to highlight and feature campus-wide initiatives and may change from year to year.
