Student Life

Students in Poole College can take advantage of a wide variety of opportunities to find community and make the most of their NC State experience.

You Belong Here

Poole College is home to a thriving community of undergraduate students who connect with one another, enjoy their passions and build their resumes through student organizations, events, service opportunities, social activities and more. There’s a place for everyone here, and we can help you find it.

To meet new friends while gaining the experience in teamwork, leadership and organization that future employers love to see, join one or more of the college’s more than 30 student organizations. And if you want to connect with students outside the college, NC State has hundreds of student organizations focused on everything from a cappella to zoology.

Our community values diverse backgrounds and wants to create an inclusive atmosphere for all. Whether it’s through joining in on one of our heritage month events or hanging out in the Inclusion Hub — a gathering space in Nelson Hall — you can meet other students who are like you and learn more about those who aren’t.

See Yourself at Poole

Meet Ryan Montgomery, a first-year #PoolePack management student. 🐺🐾

Ryan Montgomery enters Poole College with a unique educational background. As a homeschool student from Greensboro, NC, he found community through playing baseball, working and helping out with local political campaigns. ⚾️

“Friends, a great culture and a great reputation”, said Montgomery, made @ncstate and Poole College the obvious choice for him when he made his college decision. 👏

Montgomery is excited to study economics and looks forward to the opportunity to network and connect with a group of people that will support him in his journey to academic and career success.

Meet @yahirsancchez 🐺🐾

Yahir Sanchez-Vazquez is a first-year management student. 🎉

Sanchez-Vazquez enters Poole College with an impressive artistic background. 🎨🎭

Vazquez recently graduated from West Forsyth High School in Winston Salem, NC, where he was very creatively engaged. He was involved in theater, chorus, dance, French club and photography club where his activeness in both the performing and visual arts allowed him to bring an original perspective to NC State and Poole College.

“The endless opportunities, network and hands-on practicality of business as seen in the real world”, said Vazquez, are what made Poole College stand out when he made his college decision.

Vazquez plans to major in business administration with a concentration in information technology (IT). He is looking forward to meeting new people and landing an internship to apply his academic knowledge and gain new experiences. 

His creative skills make him an outstanding addition to Poole’s technological and digitally innovative learning program. 👏
