As a result of living in the village, students move in early and participate in team building activities with their peers in the village. First-year students are signed up to participate in the Multicultural Student Affairs Symposium for Multicultural Scholars. The symposium is a summer educational and transitional experience aimed to foster a sense of community for incoming first-year students and to provide them with information about campus support, personnel, coping strategies, and their cultural heritage as a basis for helping ensure their academic, social and emotional success at NC State.
The programming opportunities coupled with the engagement level of our students’ aid in making this experience an impactful one for members of the community. In order to accomplish this, we require students to attend regularly schedule village meetings where they receive programming updates as well as participate in academic and professional development workshops.
Students will also have the opportunity to dive deeper into Native American heritage through their participation in Native American Heritage Month and assisting in the planning and execution of the NC State Pow Wow. See the Native American Student Affairs website for more information.
