Pre-College

The Wilson College of Textiles holds four one-week long sessions of STEP each summer. Participants live in an NC State residence hall; participate in presentations on degree programs, applying to NC State, the Wilson College of Textiles Centennial Scholarship application process; and work on a project related to one of our majors; as well as take part in fun activities on and around campus.  This program is for rising high school seniors only.  Apply to STEP.

My experience with STEP allowed me to gain a clearer perspective of what life in the fashion industry would be like. As someone who has always known what I want to do, STEP really solidified my decision to come to the Wilson College of Textiles at NC State. Each person there inspired my creativity even more. I look forward to graduating with some of those same people in a few years.
