Cultural Exchange Network (CENet)

The Cultural Exchange Network is a student organization that fosters global learning and international friendships through social, academic, and service activities. CENet sponsors at least 30 events each semester that members can participate in for little to no cost.


The Arts

If you enjoy the arts, there are many events you can attend including theatre, dance, and musical performances. Tickets for these events are only $5 with your student ID card. If you prefer to make your own art, the NC State Craft Center offers workshops and classes throughout the year.

Student Clubs and Organizations

At NC State there is a club for almost every interest or hobby. There are several animal-related clubs, a robotics club, anime club, and even a sailing club! There are also many international student associations, where you can meet other students from your country studying at NC State.


Talley Student Union

The Talley Student Union is a great place to socialize with friends, have a bite to eat, and buy books and NC State clothing in the bookstore. It is also the location of many clubs and organizations on campus.

Intramural Sports

If you enjoy playing sports, there are many intramural teams you can be a part of. Intramural sports are recreational sports teams where students play against other teams. Students involved in intramural events are there to have fun, and it can be a great way to meet new friends. You do not have to be skilled in a sport to join. You can even organize your own group of friends and make a new team.

Wellness and Recreation offers intramural sports like soccer, tennis, flag football, volleyball, basketball, ultimate frisbee, and kickball.
