Welcome freshmen! Many of the 4,700 entering freshmen will arrive to campus this weekend to move in to their dorm rooms before classes start next Wednesday. It’ll be the beginning of a spirited Wolfpack Welcome Week highlighted by the Alumni Association’s Legacy Luncheon, the Convocation Festival and the Friday Fest Concert. So as our newest members of the Wolfpack family settle in, what advice do you have for them? What should they do to get the most out of their NC State experience? What would you have done differently? What do you wish you had been told or listened to when you started college? Let us know, and leave a comment.

Here’s what Eric Webber ’74 told Melissa Clements ’07, our program assistant for outreach and engagement, at an alumni network event this week in Portland.

    For schoolwork, go to class and do the homework. For the experience, attend as many football and basketball games as possible.

    #1 – Go Greek, whether it be your freshman or your sophomore year. DO IT.

    #2 – As Scott ’96 says, go to the games! This includes baseball, soccer, gymnastics,… you name it.

    #3 – Shop the campus bookstore sales, regularly! You will never get rid of your Wolfpack paraphernalia! 😉
