First in the Pack

"First in the Pack" are first-generation college students at NC State who are first in their families to attend college.

Each year, the Office of Parents and Families Services in collaboration with TRIO Programs hosts honorary events for these students and their families celebrating their achievements and contributions to the university community.

This community-building event brings in faculty and staff who are first in their family to attend college to share their stories as first-generation college students while celebrating the success of our First in the Pack students.
