"To teach a man how he may learn to grow independently, and for himself, is perhaps the
                      greatest service that one man can do another." 
                                                                           - Benjamin Jowett

Arriving at NC State

Welcome to the friendly city of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA ! Forget how you think you should pronounce the city name, it's pronounced as Rah-Lee by locals, so you had better get used to it! Always in the top ten list of the most livable cities in the US, Raleigh enjoys relatively good weather, affordable housing and plenty of outdoor opportunities - the best city you never knew!

You will arrive at Raleigh-Durham airport (RDU) - this airport serves the tri-city area of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. The airport is not very far away from Campus. If you inform Maitri well in advance, they will arrange to pick you up.
