Beginning Thursday, March 12, 2020, we are suspending requests for in-person visits until further notice. This is in line with NC State's response to mitigating the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on our community. As always, the health and safety of visitors to campus is our first priority. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at a future time.
