Health & Safety: Not a lot of crime. I feel safe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The option to take the classes online from a very reputable program weighed in favorably in my decision to attend this school.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm an online student. The workload is fair, I believe most graduate engineering classes will require a good amount of effort. I've only taken one class so far and the professor was very knowledgeable.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Wireless access is everywhere on campus. If you are in engineering, you must have your own laptop.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I chose NCSU because of its technical side, as opposed to UNC-Chapel Hill. I would choose this school over again if I had the chance.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I do not really have much experience in the Nightlife.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most students dress in everyday clothes; it definitely does not have a preppy atmosphere even in the honors village. Unfortunately, I find that students in the honors village are more study, study, rather than active outside.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Living on campus is expensive; however, it is nice to live right by peers. There is a gym and a student center on campus, which is convenient. D.H. Hill is about a fifteen minutes walk maximum wherever you live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are restaurants, such as Chipotle, Jasmins, I Love New York Pizza, asian restaurants, etc. They are about as pricey as the on-campus restaurants, but better quality.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I have not received a scholarship from NCSU yet.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is mediocre, but there is a pretty good variety of options.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not know much about off-campus housing. However, I do know that some of those buildings are more expensive and have more space.

2 College Freshman

Parking: It is difficult to find parking in general, especially when an event is occurring. There are not many spots available for those without parking permits.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are several different ethic groups that attend NCSU. Most people that attend NCSU are from North Carolina, but a surprising amount of students are international students.

4 College Freshman

Weather: No weather problems so far. All seasons have been mild.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: As a Nutrition Science major, I have had the privilege of meeting and being taught by some of the greatest faculty and staff members in my department who have had so much experience in this field and are highly recognized.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The variety of majors at NCSU is very broad with many options. The professors that I have had thus far have been great, and most of them really showing that they care that their students learn. Registering for classes however is extremely annoying and a often a pain to do every semester.

Parking: Being in the capital city of the state, there aren't all that many parking options that are at a reasonable price either on campus or nearby.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I personally am not in a fraternity or sorority because I feel that it isn't really necessary to be a part of one in order to be involved or have a fun social life.

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.
