The Office of Parents & Families Services works to nurture relationships between parents, families, and their NC State University students.

Since 2000, the NC State University Office of Parents & Families Services has had the opportunity to partner with hundreds of thousands of families, promoting and achieving student success. When your student comes to State, you and your family become part of the Wolfpack as well; and we invite you to take advantage of the various events, programs, and discounts that are offered only to the parents and families of NC State students. By engaging in your student’s higher education career, your experience can and will be just as bountiful and fulfilling as your students.

We encourage parents and families to become your student’s #1 fan, supporting and cheering them on until they cross the graduation stage; because we want, what you want…your student’s success!
