"The North Carolina Student Legislature capitalizes on one of North Carolina's most valuable
resources - our youth. By joining the idealism of college students with practical experience of the legislative process, the Student Legislative increases awareness of our state's problems and potential. At the very least, it leaves its alumni with an increased civic consciousness. And
frequently, alumni become prominent leaders of business and government in North Carolina." - N.C. Governor Jim Hunt

"Involvement in the Student Legislature not only helps to develop an understanding of how the
process works and the problems confronting our state, but it gives you the opportunity to express your views and to make a difference. You are tomorrows leaders and with your involvement and support, North Carolina will continue to grow and prosper." - N.C. Lt. Governor Bob Jordan

"Small wonder that the Student Legislature is so highly regarded. It's an idea whose time had come on the first day it functioned - and it will be around for the next 50 years, and beyond, as a wholesome and constructive part of what we regard as the great State of North Carolina." - U.S. Senator Jesse Helms

"The North Carolina Student Legislature has offered thousands of young people across our state the opportunity to learn more about the operations of our General Assembly, while also affording them the opportunity to express their views on current state and national issues. Such training is valuable, not only to the individual, but to the state, for the young leaders of today will be society's leaders of the future." - N.C. Governor James G. Martin
