What to bring
You may not have enough time for extensive shopping during your first weeks at NCSU; thus, it would help to bring along some extra clothing and personal items. If you like, you can bring some traditional foods or seasonings but you really do not need to pay for your overweight baggage to bring many things that you can easily find here at low price. The temperature drops down sometimes below the freezing point in the winter. You will see few snows, but it does rain frequently. In summers, it is quite hot and humid, with temperatures reaching 40 oC.
Airport pickup and temporary housing
Office of International Students (OIS) offers airport pickup and arranges temporary housing for new students. You can find out information about this in your admission package. We promise to do the best we can do for you!
