Student Government

Student Government was founded in 1921 as a student-run organization that serves as the official voice of the student body.  We attempt to better the student experience at NC State by functioning as a governing body and advocacy group.  Involved in policy-making, adjudication, programming, lobbying, community services, and countless other activities, we work alongside administrators to address student concerns.

Like the US government, three branches make up SG:

  • Executive Branch - assists in implementing policies, creates and implements initiatives, and executes special projects of the Student Body President
  • Student Senate - establishes and recommends policies to the University administration, allocates the SG budget, and distributes funds to registered student organizations
  • Judicial Branch - operates fairly independently, hearing cases involving student misconduct, including academic integrity violations

Students have a voice in government through participation in campus-wide elections (by voting or running) or may apply to serve on the Conduct Board as well.  For more information please visit Student Government's website.

The Union Activities Board

The Union Activities Board (UAB) is a student-directed programming network of committees that plan and implement a variety of programs for the campus community, including the Films Committee (that schedules films for Witherspoon Campus Cinema), Leisure & Recreation Committee, Issues & Ideas Committee, Diversity Activities Board, Concerts and Entertainment Committee, and the Black Students Board.  We also have a marketing team with graphic designers and a social media manager. You can visit them online at the UAB website, friend them on the UAB Facebook page, Instagram, or follow them with the UAB Twitter feed!

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.   These fraternal values are summarized by our Community  Pillars: Brotherhood, Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Sisterhood. 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 14 chapters currently living in Greek Village on campus.  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.
