The Wolfpack’s starting place for students to get involved at NC State, Student Involvement helps students find fun and meaningful ways to make NC State home through involvement on campus. The department supports the Wolfpack’s diverse community of student organization members, leaders, and advisors through advising, education, and programming. Student Involvement also provides resources to students that make it easy to find any of over 700 student organizations to join or start an organization that doesn’t exist.
Getting involved is an important way students can develop the sense of belonging necessary for academic success, personal and professional development. Being involved on campus is a great way to build a sense of belonging at NC State, increase cultural competencies and develop multiple perspectives, as well develop academically, personally, and professionally.

Fraternity and Sorority Life
There are over 50 fraternities and sororities at NC State University, each founded to prepare students for society through a values-based fraternal experience. Affiliation with an organization is designed to empower students to pursue their potential, providing opportunities to belong, give, achieve, live and lead. How organizations enact those values through membership, programs, and activities are what makes each organization unique. Fraternities and sororities provide opportunities to get involved, helping students on a large campus build a support network of peers that share similar goals and interests. Organizations challenge members to take on new responsibilities, develop their leadership potential, be active within the campus and surrounding communities, and adopt a commitment to volunteerism and civic engagement. Fraternities and sororities also provide their members with a unique lifetime membership, connecting them with local graduate and alumni chapters and national alumni groups well after graduation.
Approximately half of our chapters provide housing for their members with 15 chapters currently living in Greek Village on campus and 4 new homes under construction. The University, in partnership with our fraternities and sororities, has committed to redevelop Greek Village over the next 10 years. At completion, Greek Village will be home to over 35 different fraternities and sororities in a combination of homes, townhouses and apartments.
