9. Living and Learning Villages
Living and Learning Villages at NC State provide a unique opportunity for community within residence halls. The villages provide an experience based upon shared interests, achievements, academics and personal goals. Village members live together and form connections through programs, trips, events and community service.
“It is important for freshman or first-year students to come in and be accepted by the community in which they live. I lived in the Arts Village for three years and I was a mentor there for two. While the village is small, it’s also a very tight knit community and everyone is accepting and helpful.”–Bannie (Yu) Pan
Engineering, Honors and Scholars, and Exploratory Studies villages have academics as their primary focus and provide resources and programming to support students’ academic success. With 16 villages to choose from, there’s an opportunity for everyone to participate. Find the complete list of villages here.
“Being a part of the Scholars Village is a really nice experience. I met one of my friends at a Scholars Village in Action event. My experiences with this program have been very positive. We went to go see University Theatre’s Love/Sick and it was interesting to see how my friends and I reacted to it and what we thought.”
