Athletics

Nothing unites the Pack like the excellence of our student-athletes. On the court, the field, the track and the diamond, NC State competes at the highest level.

The Strength of the Pack

NC State’s rich tradition of college athletics began soon after the school’s founding, when students organized the first football game in 1892. Since then, our teams have won four national championships and countless conference titles, and we’ve won 31 individual national championships.

Beginning with Reynolds Coliseum and continuing with Carter-Finley Stadium and PNC Arena, NC State works with public and private partners to provide state-of-the-art multipurpose facilities that host athletic events, concerts and other entertainment and educational activities.

Now sponsoring 23 varsity programs, NC State Athletics promotes team and individual success, makes scholarship and educational opportunities available to more than 550 student-athletes, and creates memorable experiences for Wolfpack fans.

Students and alumni, faculty and staff, fans old and new — they all find their strength in the Pack.
