We have a fantastic array of discounts that can save you hundreds of dollars or more each year. We personally love to show our Pack pride with discounts on NC State merchandise. Your membership will help you save money on entertainment, insurance, home buying, dining, food, travel, and clothing.
You are Red and White for Life
Your membership strengthens the bond between you and the institution that was formative in your development. By joining the Alumni Association, you strengthen that bond and identity with a university that is rich in tradition and transformative in people’s lives. Many of the national college and university rankings factor the number of alumni association members at a respective institution into their rankings. The professionals producing these rankings see a clear correlation between strong alumni associations and strong educational and career opportunities. We are strong university and will be even stronger when you join us.

Your membership supports the university’s efforts to attract and retain the best professors and students. The Alumni Association focuses on what is the essence of excellence at NC State—innovation, leadership and service.
