Graduation 2022

Admitted to NC State? You have until May 1 to confirm your enrollment.

Class of 2022, Congratulations!

The challenges and the celebrations, the struggles and the successes — class of 2022, it’s all been leading up to this. You’re finally NC State graduates. Below, we’re sharing your stories and spotlighting some incredible brand-new alums.

Rewatch spring commencement as it happened on May 7.

Best of Friends: #NCState22

We asked the class of 2022 to tell us about their best friends — and they delivered. Watch students reflect on the strong bonds that shaped their college experience.

Niambé James and Kourtni Curry gravitated toward one another from day one. Now, the Goodnight Scholars are inseparable.

By the Numbers

By every metric, this year’s graduating class blew us away.

The Wolfpack’s newest alums hail from 42 states and 53 countries. 3,184 of them are graduating with honors. The youngest is just 16 years old. And among our tassel-turners are 862 first-generation graduates, 385 international students, 109 student veterans and 74 student athletes.

We can’t wait to see what they’ll do next.

6,112 Spring Graduates

6,494 Degrees Awarded

Saturdays in the fall and third quarter hot chocolate are just two of the things Alyssa McInnis (@alyssa.mac10) and Emily Southard (@ejsouthard) will miss now that they’ve graduated. Most of all, they’ll miss the Power Sound of the South (@ncstatemusic) — and each other. Brought together by the saxophone section, Alyssa and Emily took one last trip to Carter-Finley, and the section where they spent many game days standing side by side, to reflect before officially earning their degrees in biochemistry (@ncstatecals) and middle grades mathematics education (@ncstateced), respectively. #NCState22 🎓🐺
To the ones who raised us. Happy Mother’s Day, Wolfpack Moms. ❤️🐺
