4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I really like the Raleigh area. I have grown up at the beach so I do not see myself choosing to live here over an area like my hometown, but I would not mind having the shopping and dining atmosphere around.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Our campus is pretty strict regarding drug and alcohol use. At big social events put on by the university or university affiliations, there are always cops on duty when needed but do not fully restrict the use of alcohol at events. As far as drugs, I am unaware of anything that goes on but I know it is something that is kept to a minimum.

Nightlife: The apartment complexes always throw lots of parties and is a great way to meet people, making it especially convenient for the complexes that you live in. Downtown is alright, but wish that there were more options closer to campus and more college friendly for those both younger and older than 21.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics overall are good, however I wish there was a way as a freshman not sure of what they're interested in to explore different career fields before choosing a major; one that didn't require different levels or different types of classes for each separate major.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am a varsity student athlete at NCSU and the facilities are great and well-maintained. I wish that the large sporting events were closer to/on campus but everyone attends and they bring together the students and the university.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing has been great. It is a very nice apartment complex with great employees and within relatively average distance from campus with a shuttle to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus shuttles do what they need to. We also have a Campus Cruizer program that is much cheaper than taxis and very helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: If they were more strict the campus would be boring.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The Southern, White, Christian student is still very common.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown, Hillsborough St, and Cameron Village have endless options.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It's usually beautiful, but it gets really windy in the winter.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not yet lived off campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology: The professors are extremely helpful and advisors are always helping students get jobs and internships within the field. There is also the Leopold Wildlife Club. Some of the classes are extremely difficult but they are still interesting.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Wolf Village is very nice but somewhat far from most classes.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Not much crime occurs on campus but when it does the campus police efficiently handle it.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not qualify for any financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus police officers are always around. They are friendly and are not out to get us, but they do strongly enforce laws and regulation when dealing with an individuals health or state of mind or how their behaviors can effect other students; i.e. underage drinking.

Diversity: There are several different programs and services that allow students of all races, economic backgrounds, religions, etc. to come together and act as one on behalf of Wolfpack student body at large.

Transportation: The campus buses are fair, they run throughout the day and even later into the evening hours. Late-night and weekends are troublesome because not all campus buses are in service. Taxis can become a bit pricey when traveling longer distances.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife is great! There is a multitude of things to do/places to go such as local restaurants on Hillsborough Street or in Downtown Raleigh.There is also a new campus cruiser system that acts as a designated driver service for peers! It is very reliable and makes for a safer traveling environment for students.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Facilities are very nice, especially Talley Student Union which was opened last semester.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Campus is surrounded by fairly cheap restaurants on Hillsborough Street and Western Boulevard - some of which are open late. Raleigh also offers many fine dining options in nearby Cameron Village and downtown.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Carmichael Gym is very nice and in the heart of campus. Also, intramural sports are pretty fun and competitive and many people participate.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Wish the dorm rooms wi-fi instead of just the lounges but almost everywhere else on campus has it available and it's pretty fast and reliable.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Many parties are exclusive - especially for guys - so you have to know the right people. Also, there aren't any good bars on Hillsborough for the under-21 crowd.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, the students' experience with NCSU is that it provides them with a rich learning environment. Students learn to balance play and work. Some come to NC State because of family tradition, to get away from the cold, or because of the College of Engineering-but whatever the reason is for the individual, positive feedback always finds its way out. Professors at the University will go above and beyond their call of duty. You make lifelong friends, and you have a huge list of organizations to partake in. Whether you're involved in a college sport, student government, or the Agribusiness Club, you will find your niche here among the thousands of students. Some professors will take you under their wing, and you will learn enormous amounts of information from them. These professors will also become lifelong connections who will probably end up writing letters of recommendation for you when it is time for you to find a job.

NC State wants its students to succeed not only in academics, but in life, too. Here you learn important lifelong skills that are essential to your survival in the real world. Classes can be rigorous and stressful, but students find a way to overcome hardships and get through. Professors will push you to do your best, but at the same time, they understand what it was like to be a student. NC State will help you become an expert in your subject of choice, and with the large number of students, you will come out of college ready to work in some of the most diverse settings.
