What is WISE?

The WISE Village is a living and learning community, located in Lee Hall, for first and second year women entering into STEM fields. The Village provides these students with a unique opportunity to live and work together in a supportive community. WISE focuses on helping women in STEM feel at home at NC State and engage in focused inquiry within their disciplines to help them achieve their educational and career goals in a supportive community with others who will share their interests.

WISE students are connected with upper-class WISE Mentors to ease the transition to university life. The Village offers a variety of academic and social opportunities, including free tutoring for Calculus, Physics, & Chemistry, drop-in, workshops, volunteer opportunities, regular faculty interaction, and social gatherings.
