Wolfpack Bound

Wolfpack Bound, a program for incoming freshman, offers an outdoor adventures-themed complement to the traditional NC State new student orientation. The program offers students an opportunity to interact with other incoming freshmen, network with faculty and staff, and learn outdoor skills in the beautiful mountains of NC and VA or the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Throughout the experience, students will be challenged both physically and mentally while developing leadership skills, and lasting relationships.

Wolfpack Bound is an opportunity to get outside and learn new skills and push past your comfort zone! All trips do not require any previous experience!

*Please note this is not a replacement to the NC State New Student Orientation. Our program is a complement to the University NSO program. Unfortunately, we are not able to make special accommodations for students whose NSO falls within our trip dates.
