Programs & Events
Offered in the fall each year, Parents & Families Weekend celebrates the parents & families of our students. North Carolina State University families are invited to attend in this time-honored tradition and join their students for the traditional football game, tailgate party, and other special events.
The “Family of the Year” award is intended to honor the supportive roles families play in the education of students by recognizing an outstanding family. Each fall, undergraduate students are invited to nominate their families through an essay contest. The recipient family is presented with the award at Parents & Families Weekend.
Families are invited back in the spring to enjoy more Wolfpack fun, such as a men’s basketball game, pre-game party, service activities, and arts events.
