The mission of the Honors Village is to create a community of young scholars which is engaged in societal issues; provides opportunities for growth; and is grounded in critical scholarship.

The Honors Village is an active and engaged community of students at NC State. Whether you are a student who lives in the Quad, or a UHP student living elsewhere on or off campus, we invite you to take part in the life of the community. Listed below, you will find the major student organizations in the Quad, as well as how to connect with each one. All of the events and activities are listed in the Calendar section of the blog.

If you have questions about the Village, as a whole, please contact Brian Peters, Community Director for the Honors Village.
