Pack Appreciation Day 2023

Save the date for Oct. 25: On our fifth annual Pack Appreciation Day, we'll be celebrating all the ways philanthropy empowers every student to find their home in the Wolfpack.

Pack Appreciation Day is a Red and White Week tradition that brings students together to connect with each other, engage with donors and learn how philanthropy enhances their educational experience.

On Pack Appreciation Day 2022, more than 2,500 students gathered at locations across NC State — Stafford Commons, Centennial Campus and the CVM campus — to share their #PackAppreciation for Wolfpack supporters like you, whose generosity makes our university even more extraordinary, year after year.

To show our gratitude, we’ve put together this video recap of Pack Appreciation Day, which includes a special message from Chancellor Woodson. We hope our students’ passion, excitement and genuine appreciation help you feel pride in the Pack not just during Red and White Week, but all year long.

Thank you for all you do. We appreciate your commitment to NC State!
