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: 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.

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.

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.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: In my opinion, greeks change after they cross over. They start to feel like they have more power. This is not everyone, but the majority of them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: The city my school is in is slow. There isn't a lot of fun attractions around. You have to make your own fun.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The transportation system is okay. There are buses that take students to malls.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing process is at random but sometimes the school says that there is no housing when there are a few rooms left for the students applying for housing.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My major which is Mass Communications, is a great major. I learn a lot of life skills and alumni speakers come into class to speak about their experiences.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are cool. The workload is a lot but it is well worth it

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at the school was good but the only thing holding me back from completely staying and attending school is the amount of tuition I'm paying. I'm an out of state student and its tough paying out of pocket each semester. Every semester I find a way to get it paid but I cannot continue doing this each semester.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is a program called Centennial Scholars program and its a brotherhood program to help students on campus with anything as far as understanding bills on their account and also advice.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities are pretty good.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The wireless availability is weak.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The only off campus restaurant is Burger King and everyone gets tired of eating that.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The resident assistants are pretty strict with visitors but other than that, they are cool.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It seems like everyone on campus either smokes or drinks. Most students smoke or have smoked before.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Where I live is great because I have a lot of space and I'm right in the middle of everything. In the middle of the cafe, library, classes, and so on. Getting into the newer dorms would be bad because they are so far away from everything. The cost is good and what would be expected. The housing process is easy. Just apply and they will do the rest. Make sure you look up the dorms on the website before you just pick the rooms.
