After Hurricane Florence

In the wake of the storm, NC State is joining the effort to recover and rebuild. Here's how we're helping — and how you can get involved.

Supporting Our State

The impacts of Hurricane Florence across North Carolina and the Southeast are severe, and in many places, long-lasting. In response, we’re uniting in the strength of the Pack to provide help — on campus and across our great state — and support those affected by the violent storm.

From sending police and facilities personnel to help our colleagues and peers at UNC-Pembroke and UNC-Wilmington, to reaching out to our students in some of the state’s hardest-hit areas, to supporting farmers and ranchers through ongoing Extension efforts, we are here to support the people of North Carolina.

Below, you’ll find a growing collection of resources and stories detailing the recovery effort.

Support for Affected Students

NC State and campus partners have many existing programs in place to help students in need of food, housing, financial and educational security. In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, we encourage any students affected by the storm to explore dedicated resources for Hurricane Florence on the Pack Essentials website, where you’ll find comprehensive resources and support.
