On Campus – NC State University

North Carolina State University, founded in 1887 as the state’s first land grant college, has a duty to open the doors of education for everyone and is dedicated to excellent teaching, the creation and application of knowledge, and engagement with public and private partners. By uniting its strength in science and technology with a commitment to excellence in a comprehensive range of disciplines, NC State promotes an integrated approach to problem-solving that transforms lives and provides leadership for social, economic, and technological development across North Carolina and around the world.

Location

NC State University is based in North Carolina’s capital, Raleigh, about halfway down the East Coast of the United States. Being one of the fastest-growing cities in America, you will never have to look far in this city. Entertainment extravaganza? Natural oasis? Perfect climate? The town, also known as the City of Oaks, for its sheer number of majestic oak trees lining the streets, has it all! So say goodbye to boring weekends thanks to hot new restaurants ranging from southern comfort food to world-class cuisine, award-winning museums, major music festivals, and sporting events. Catch live music every night of the week — from local acts to chart-topping performers. Watch the Carolina Hurricanes hit the ice in the PNC Arena. Or take a stroll in the JC Raulston Arboretum, a gorgeous 10-acre botanical garden, and venture through more than 100 miles of greenway trails across the city. Of course, North Carolina’s temperate weather, with an average high of 11°C and an average low of 0°C during winter months and an average high of 31°C and an average low of 19°C during summer months, brings along dreamy spring florals, vibrant fall foliage, and everything in between, making it all possible.

Raleigh-Dunham is home to one of the greatest technological research parks in the world, the Research Triangle Park (RTP). It has more than 200 companies and over 50,000 people with expertise in fields such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, microelectronics, chemicals, and environmental sciences.

This highly rated public, comprehensive research university, which ranks within the top one percent of Universities worldwide and sixth for Best Value among public universities nationally, is home to over 37,500 students. An overwhelming percentage of those students say that professors are approachable and helpful when needed (83%) and care about their students‘ success (79%), which is paramount as of its 15:1 student-faculty ratio.

Luca Stäheli (men’s tennis)

Luca, from Switzerland, has been playing for the Wolf Pack since the Fall of 2021. He has won various awards for and with NC State Pack Tennis, including ACC’s Freshman of the Year award and ITA Carolina Region Rookie of the Year, all while taking on his Bachelor’s in Economics.

The mentality is different. In addition, the team training sessions have a different energy than before, when I was more or less left to my own devices. We also practice doubles regularly, which helps me as an individual player.
