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.
