Campus Traditions

Because of COVID-19, some honored NC State traditions and spirit activities may have to be altered or canceled in 2020.

Protecting the Red and White

NC State has weathered many storms and adapted to many changes since it was established in 1887. Through wars, economic downturns, pandemics and hurricanes, the Wolfpack has stood proud and resilient, courageously facing the future with pride and optimism.

Today, the Wolfpack is united by a growing number of campus traditions that help define our community and advance our culture of service and inclusion. While some of these traditional activities have been canceled for the fall semester, many will continue. Students are encouraged to watch for more information from the university about these events and activities in the fall semester.
