Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week
April 4-8 the Graduate School supports and recognizes Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week.
April 4-8, 2022 we recognize the many contributions our NC State graduate and professional students make to research, teaching, our state, and beyond.
Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week was started in 1993 by the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students as a way to support and appreciate graduate and professional students. The week seeks to emphasize the contributions, impact, and value of graduate and professional students on campuses throughout the United States.
During this week the Graduate School wants to recognize, appreciate and celebrate all that is extraordinary about our GradPack! See our list of events below.
