Why NC State?
Raleigh, North Carolina
• Raleigh Ranked #1 "Best Place to Live" by Businessweek.com
There are many reasons to live and work in the Raleigh, N.C., metropolitan region, which is consistently recognized as one of the `best places to live' in the United States.
North Carolina's state capitol is ideally situated between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. There are 11 major beaches within a two to three hour drive to the East, including North Carolina's famed Outer Banks. Mountain retreats await to the West, highlighted by the Biltmore Estate in Asheville.
With a mild climate year-round (average high temperature of 71 degrees), it's easy to see why Raleigh and the surrounding region is consistently rated among the `best places to live' in the United States.
The Research Triangle region surrounds the NC State campus where many of the country's leading, Fortune 500 technology, research and pharmaceutical companies are located.
The "City of Oaks" boasts a population of more than 400,000 residents, and is home to nine colleges and universities. One-third of Raleigh's population is comprised of minorities, and one-third of the population is also between the ages of 18 and 32. The Raleigh region has over 1.1 million people.
Raleigh also features more than 4,300 acres of parkland and almost 1,400 acres of water, offering recreational activities year round. A nationally-acclaimed greenway system spans 41 miles, providing walking, jogging and hiking trails that connect many of the city's 150 major parks.
Entertainment, arts and culture have a strong home in Raleigh. The PNC Arena welcomes more than 1.5 million guests and plays host to more than 150 events annually, including NC State men's basketball. The greater Raleigh area has five venues for live music events and there are four minor league baseball teams within close proximity. Numerous museums, Broadway shows, the N.C. Symphony, the Opera Company of North Carolina, and North Carolina's only 3D IMAX theatre, all call Raleigh home.

NC State Athletics
"Wolfpack Unlimited" captures NC State's vision for the future of the athletics department:
"We can become what we believe we can become. If we rally the Wolfpack family, lock arms as a collective force, and move forward... we can reach these challenging goals," states Deborah A. Yow, Director of Athletics.
A charter member of both the Southern Conference and, later, the Atlantic Coast Conference, NC State has been competing at the highest level of college athletics for more than a century.
Wolfpack teams have captured more than 120 team conference championships and 4 team national championships, including the memorable 1974 and 1983 men's basketball national titles. NC State student-athletes have also won 29 individual national championships, including 10 in men's and women's outdoor track and field, seven in swimming, five in women's cross country, five in wrestling, one in platform diving, and one in men's golf. The school has produced Olympic champions in swimming and dominated the sports of men's and women's cross country like no other school in the ACC.
In the early years, the school's teams were known as the Farmer & Mechanics, the Aggies, the Techs, and the Red Terrors, before the football team became know as the Wolfpack in 1921. The name was eventually adopted by all athletics teams in 1947.
Each of NC State's varsity programs has a distinct advantage at home and often on the road - the incomparable Wolfpack fans. The dedication of Wolfpackers is second to none. The folks in the red and white have a well-deserved reputation for being among the most loyal in the nation.
