Student Life

Mind and body, professional and personal, intellectual and entertaining student life at CVM is a 360 degree experience.


Unique Culture of Collaboration

At NC State Veterinary Medicine life is equal parts thinking and doing. Our whole campus is set up to immerse you in the Veterinary experience from a state-of-the-art hospital to a working farm to labs and classrooms that have the latest equipment. Add to that a culture of collaboration that is exemplified in our common spaces where students can gather and trade ideas or just have fun, and you have a campus environment where you are set for success and to make connections that will last a lifetime.

CVM Students Think and Do.

The Excitement of the Wolfpack

With more than 600 student organizations on campus, you can experience it all: running a daily newspaper, deejaying for one of the nation’s top college radio stations, building robots, exploring improv comedy or dance and much, much more. Whatever your area of interest, be it political, professional, social, ethnic or academic, there’s a student organization for you.

The hub for our student activities is the new Talley Student Union, a state-of-the-art foundation for student life. Combined with the tradition of our hallowed places, including our very own veterinary medicine pastures, NC State is a place where community comes alive and students truly think and do.
