CALS Quest Days

We invite high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors who are beginning their college search — and have not decided on a primary CALS major — to a CALS Quest Day. Quest Days introduce you to CALS and NC State and provide a chance to hear from our current students. 

Fall 2023 Quest Days are Monday, Sept. 25 (registration closed), and Monday, Nov. 6.
