“Native Education Forum provided me with the opportunity to meet other Native students also searching for the perfect college fit. Attending this program allowed me to explore NC State’s campus and resources, convincing me that this was the university I wanted to attend. NEF is a worthwhile program full of opportunities for young Natives seeking higher education.” – Kasey Cooper, Current NC State Student
