NC State Is Here to Help
As we near the end of the semester, it may feel overwhelming, and at times isolating, to face finals and winter break. You are not alone. At NC State, there are many teams across campus ready to help you succeed academically while also helping you take care of your mental, emotional and physical well-being.
Below we’ve compiled some key support resources. Take some time to explore the programs and services available to you. In addition, Wolfpack Wellness has a growing list of mental health resources.
- Contact your academic advisor and attend your professors’ office hours. Don’t be afraid to say you need support. They’re ready and waiting to help you, even if you aren’t exactly sure what kind of help you need.
- Visit the Academic Success Center and schedule free tutoring appointments and writing consultations.
- Use the Career Development Center to find a job, internship or professional attire for an interview.
