N.C. A&T's Fall Commencement Ceremony Start Time Delayed

North Carolina A&T State University has delayed the start time of its fall commencement ceremony, Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017.

The Journey Toward the Degree: N.C. A&T Students Share their Stories

On Saturday, Dec. 9, more than 950 North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University students will be awarded degrees across many different disciplines. Today and throughout the week, the university will highlight and share a few of their stories.

N.C. A&T Junior Honored for Community Service

Political science student Tylik McMillian is a believer of the Shirley Chisolm quote, “Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth.” So much so that he rises every morning with a specific goal in mind.
