Wolfpack Bound

Wolfpack Bound

Wolfpack Bound is an outdoor adventures-themed program for incoming freshman that offers a complement to the traditional NC State New Student Orientation. Offering a unique opportunity to develop long lasting relationships, students develop their leadership skills, goal setting, time management and outdoor skills through a variety of on campus and off campus activities.

Through the experience, students will be challenged both physically and mentally as they hit the trail backpacking and climbing or sea kayak on the coast. All trips do not require previous experience.
