Wellness Day

November 3, 2022

As NC State celebrates Red and White Week, we also want to take time to pause and address a difficult and stressful time affecting our campus. Now more than ever, we must take care of ourselves and each other. On Thursday, November 3, the university will observe a Wellness Day. We encourage the NC State community to use this time to take a breath and check in with friends, family and yourselves.

Please see the full video of Chancellor Randy Woodson’s announcement here:
