The North Carolina State University at Raleigh, generally referred to as North Carolina State or NCSU, Wolfpack compete as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference in NCAA Division I FBS football and in NCAA Division I basketball. North Carolina State is a public land-grant institution located in the capital city of Raleigh, North Carolina. The school has an undergraduate enrollment of around 24,000.

The campus is located in west Raleigh, stretching from I-40/US 64 in the south to NC 54 (Hillsborough Street) in the north, between downtown to the east and Gorman Street to the west. Exit 2A off I-440, the Western Street exit, provides the most convenient freeway access half a mile west of campus; an alternate is exit 295 off I-40/US 64, the Gorman Street exit, located two miles south of campus. Carter-Finley Stadium (57,500) and RBC Arena (20,000) are located off-campus, three miles away at the Edwards Mill Road exit off the Wade Avenue extension freeway (off I-40, exit 289 or off I-440, exit 4B). Reynolds Coliseum (14,000) is on-campus at the corner of Cates Avenue and Morrill Drive.

North Carolina is far and away NC State's most hated rival. Lesser rivalries exist with Duke, Wake Forest, and Clemson.

There have been 136 NC State alumni in the NFL, including QB Roman Gabriel, WR Torry Holt, and QB Phillip Rivers. The school has sent 38 players to the NBA or ABA, most notably Thurl Bailey, Tom Gugliotta, Nate McMillan, Spud Webb, and Hall-of-Famer David Thompson.
