Classes and majors are just one part of the college experience. Exposure to new people, places, activities and ideas are all part of the transformative process through which young people explore their interests and passions and begin to chart a path that will bring them both personal and professional fulfillment.
At NC State, our measure of student success goes far beyond GPAs, retention and graduation rates. We focus on the student experience as a whole. Our goal is to provide innovative, high-impact opportunities, that enable each student to learn and grow and find a home at NC State. We have developed a wide range of programs and activities to ensure that every student has the tools and support to achieve their goals, throughout college and after they graduate.
To coordinate these critical programs, NC State has established the Division of Academic and Student Affairs (DASA), to reach all of our colleges and serve students in every major. NC State is uncommon among our peers in combining oversight of academic programs and student affairs—an indication of our commitment to take a holistic approach to every aspect of the student experience. DASA services are spread throughout campus and beyond to make student access as convenient as possible.
From new student orientation to the arts, DASA provides more than 50 academic and co-curricular experiences and services for students, outside of their majors. Every student comes to NC State with a unique background, needs, interests and goals. It is that diversity that makes our community so special. Virtually every undergraduate student benefits from at least one—and likely many more—DASA-led programs each year.
