Welcome to the Wolfpack, SKEMA
NC State hosts SKEMA Business School’s U.S. campus on our Centennial Campus. SKEMA is one of the top business schools in France with additional satellite campuses in China and Brazil. The Raleigh campus has grown to almost 800 students a year, making it the largest concentration of French students in the U.S. The GTI helps orient, connect, and integrate the SKEMA students into the NC State and surrounding community. SKEMA students also participate in various cultural, community service, and academic activities as part of the Cultural Exchange Network (CENet).
Welcome new SKEMA students, in order to meet social distancing guidelines set by the Center for Disease Control and NC State Univeristy, GTIs Orientation to NC State for new SKEMA Raleigh students will be hosted virtually. Please familiarize yourself with the following materials which set expecations for your first semester in Raleigh, NC.
The GTI will help you transition to life in the United States and provide opportunities to get engaged at NC State. Students receive the following information in a welcome email after their application is processed and approved:
- Campus ID: the nine-digit numeral shown on the Wolfpack One Card (ex. 200123456)
- Wolfpack One ID Card: used to access a variety of services on campus. Always carry it with you! You can get your ID card at the Wolfpack One office in the Talley Student Union (Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) You MUST bring your passport. There is a $20 fee for replacement cards.
- Unity ID: six characters long, comprised of initials from your name and may also contain numbers (ex. jsmith3).
