Other Information
During New Student Orientation, students and parents/guardian will have the chance to meet other NCWC students and families; talk with representatives from various offices; register for classes for the fall semester; shop at the campus bookstore, in addition to other exciting and important activities!  There will be an information forum for both the parents and students, so you’ll be able to ask all the questions you have about attending North Carolina Wesleyan College and college in general. You will also get a tour of the campus and a chance to view residence hall rooms, as well as receive helpful hints on how to prepare for your arrival in August.  All parents and students will be led by a PAL (a student orientation leader). 

Students will be staying overnight in a residence hall. Parents are encouraged to stay in one of the local hotels and enjoy the Rocky Mount area.  For hotel information, click here.
