From the Archives: Wolfpack Welcome Week special

This Friday is the start of NC State’s Wolfpack Welcome Week, the traditional event to welcome new students, helping them adjust to life on campus and prepare for their upcoming class schedules, as well as greet returning students. NCSU Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center would like to commemorate the new semester with a sampling of images from digitized materials in our Rare and Unique Digital Collections.

For those unfamiliar with the Special Collections Research Center, we hold and manage the University’s unique archival materials, and you can find us in the D. H. Hill Library. We have a large digitized collection of Special Collections materials available online. This includes images like these, where students from years past are moving into their dorms, attending student orientation, and registering for classes.

We hope this school year goes wonderfully for you! If you would like to learn more about the Special Collections Research Center and our digitized materials, please visit NCSU Libraries’ Rare and Unique Digital Collections, which provides access to thousands of images, video, audio recordings, and textual materials documenting NC State history and other topics. If you are interested in learning more about our materials or viewing them, please see information on using Special Collections materials and use our Special Collections Request Form.

Move In Week

The annual trek to NC State begins this week, with students arriving at and returning to their home away from home. The accommodations are probably a lot better nowadays than in 1893, when First Dormitory opened, but the experience is the same, with plenty of excitement and nerves in the mix. In the picture below, sometime in the 1950s, a family from Robeson County is helping their son with his move to NC State. It’s a familiar picture, although the car’s trunk is sparsely packed compared to what students bring to college today.

Welcome Back Students

This resource, and lots more related to student life at NC State, is available as part of the NCSU Libraries’ Rare and Unique Digital Collections, which provides access to thousands of images, video, and audio recordings, and text documenting NC State history.
