What is a drop-in space?
A drop-in space is a casual, no-commitment-required way to engage in a variety of experiences that allow you to find connection and support. Drop-in spaces are offered by Prevention Services in collaboration with campus partners.
All NC State Students are welcome at drop-in spaces.
What do you mean by drop-in?
This means that the content from one week does not necessarily build on another. This allows you to try out different spaces and not worry about missing something if you have a conflict. Most drop-in spaces do not require registration but will note if they do.
