The North Carolina State University, Athletics, General Athletics Audiovisual Materials contains games, highlights, and shows of sports that could not be identified from labels. Materials range in date primarily from the 1980s to 1997 and include videocassettes and film reels. There are two film reels from 1952.

Athletics began officially at the North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts on March 2, 1892 at what is today Raleigh's Pullen Park, when a football team made up of students at the college defeated the Raleigh Male Academy, a local high school, by the score 12-6. That fall, the team scrimmaged for the first time against the second teams of area colleges. After losing to the University of North Carolina and Wake Forest, the football team decided that they lacked the funds necessary to compete on an equal level with other colleges and universities. Therefore, they petitioned the college Board of Trustees for fifty dollars to finance travel and team equipment. With this request, the faculty and trustees of the college first became involved with intercollegiate athletics. Since 1947 athletic teams at North Carolina State have been known as the Wolfpack. The University has been a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference since it was formed in 1953.

While baseball and football were some of the first organized sports teams on campus, North Carolina State University has a rich tradition of other men's and women's sports teams. The Track team was organized for intercollegiate competition in 1898, but was disbanded and did not reappear until 1905. The early part of the 20th century continued to see the addition of sports teams including theTennis (1922), Wrestling (1925), Golf (1930), and Boxing (1932) teams. In 1947, all sports teams on campus become known as "the Wolfpack;" previously, only the football team was known as the Wolfpack while all other sports teams were known as the "Red Terrors." By 1948, an NC State University swimmer won a national title. In 1949, Soccer, organized two years earlier, becomes a varsity sport. Fencing is added as a varsity sport in 1952, eventually followed by Women's Basketball (1974), Women's Gymnastics (1981) and Women's Golf (1983).
