4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's great. We have the Durham Bulls baseball team, Southpoint shopping area that has concerts on the mall, beautiful museums, arts, broadway plays and concerts at the Durham Performing Arts center, etc. Duke University, UNC, NC State University, Saint Augustine's University, and many other universities are close by. Greensboro and Charlotte events are not that far away.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The school has shuttles to and from the housing complexes beginning at 7 am and ending at 10 pm. The apartments themselves have alot of activities for students and the parking is very good. The cost is sometimes cheaper than living on campus.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I haven't had any issues with financial aid. I recommend anyone taking care of their business when asked so that you don't run into difficulties.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Cost are low but you would usually dine closer to the mall and Franklin street just so that you could hang out with other students from the 5 universities in the area.

4 College Junior

Academics: My core classes are just that. My career classes use visuals and presentations as a means of learning the material. The professors are excellent and make sure you know and understand the information. It's a caring school.

5 College Junior

Academics: There are always business fairs, workshops, and e-lerts being sent out about available jobs in the area. We do have career days where we dress i business attire once weekly and some classes require business attire on a daily basis. The program guides you through classes that build on your career.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus but I do know that the dorms have been remodeled and upon visiting the dorms, they are spacious and have computer labs available for the students. You have to carry a security badge for the dorm that you live in otherwise you will not be able to get in. There are parties held every so often in certain dorms in the main lounge area.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Students mostly travel to Chapel Hill's Franklin street to mingle with UNC students.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I attend a Historical Black College but the students are of all races. NCCU's athletic teams are diverse as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus police patrol and alert students of any problems on campus through text alerts and e-alerts. They truly up hold school policies.

4 College Junior

Athletics: There's alot of team spirit and support for our athletes at NCCU. Especially we go to finals.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greeks participate in community fundraisers and help programs. They are viewed as students just like everyone else until a party is given.

College Junior

Majors: I haven't had an internship but I do plan to. I need to get my foot in the door by being an intern. My major is Business Finance so an internship at a bank would be great.

College Junior

Majors: I have not had an internship

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The campus is very amicable, everyone is friendly even if you've never met before.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have a health center and a women's help center. I have been told that both places are very helpful. Also every month lecture series are given about this topic.

College Junior

Campus Strictness: They are somewhat in between. Some things have more value than others.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: As a member of Tau Beta Sigma, I must say greek life is fun!

4 College Junior

Diversity: North Carolina Central University is known for being one of the most diverse HBCU's in the country.

5 College Junior

Majors: North Carolina Central University has AMAZING faculty in the music department. Not only are they our teachers, but they have their careers outside of teaching as well. My mentor is the Music History professor and is a musicologist, the career route I am interested in. All of the faculty are just amazing musicians and extremely talented. The workload is somewhat heavy but they give you enough time to be able to grasp time management to balance practicing and studying.

5 College Junior

Majors: As a music major you are required to audition before you can be admitted into the department and register the required classes. Students are required to know the circle of fifths, all 12 major and minor scales (in all three forms), and be able to perform repertoire from memory.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: My school could offer a wider variety of food on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Everybody loves the sports teams at my school.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There are more pros than cons living off campus near my school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: My school likes to play by the rules.
