The records of North Carolina State University's delegation to the North Carolina Student Legislature (NCSL) contain a small amount of materials on NC State student delegates (including clipping, correspondence, rosters, and other general information), as well as materials from Legislative meetings, including committee reports, bills and resolutions, general information from meetings, the NCSL's constitution, and various items submitted by other universities in the Legislature. The purpose of the NCSL is to allow students a first-hand experience with the legislative process, while promoting public speaking and social networking skills development, and promoting the state-wide discussion of topics important to college students, often leading to proposals presented before local, state, and national politicians.

North Carolina State University began participating in the NCSL in or before 1948. The university's student enrollment at that time allowed for up to twenty-five delegates to be sent to annual meetings (a figure which was used at least through 1978), though in some years, the university was represented by fewer than twenty-five students. Meetings of the NCSL were often held at the state governmental buildings in downtown Raleigh, just a few miles from the NC State campus. North Carolina State University maintained an active delegation in the North Carolina Student Legislature as of 2008.

Biographical/historical note

The North Carolina Student Legislature (NCSL) was established in 1937, and is the oldest active student legislature in the country. Membership in the NCSL is open to undergraduate students from any public or private four-year college or university in the state of North Carolina, with approximately thirty such institutions annually represented. The purpose of the NCSL is to allow students a first-hand experience with the legislative process, while promoting public speaking and social networking skills development. The NCSL also promotes the state-wide discussion of topics important to college students, often leading to proposals presented before local, state, and national politicians. The NCSL has also been known informally as the "State Student Legislature."
