3 College Student

Academics: Workload is overwhelming the first semester to determine who should stay in the program. Competition is high and the peer pressure can be stressful. The facilities are some of the best and at this point there are not many internships available.

Academics: Registration process is easy, curriculum is readily available and they are constantly trying to weed out the students that do not need to be in that major. The workload can at times be overwhelming but there are always other students to a tutoring center to help.

Off-Campus Dining: Some of the prices of the local restaurants are expensive for students. They are convenient as we can walk and some do give discounts.

4 College Student

Majors: The application process was easy and not extremely time consuming. This was the only college that I applied to and this is where I wanted to attend as they had the program I was interested in.

Majors: I suppose it is a great program as I have talked with some students who are involved in it. I am not working with that at this time.

4 College Student

Transportation: The on campus transportation is free and otherwise it is close to walk to other locations for the cafeteria and eating establishments.

4 College Student

Facilities: The academic programs are excellent and the facilities are always tops. I live in one of the major dorms in the center of campus and there are always lots of activities available.

4 College Student

Facilities: The athletic centers are great to work in and there are lots of ways to exercise daily. There is a new student center which I work in and it is always very busy and the food is great. There is a new state of the art library on campus which is robotic.

Greek Life: Greek housing is very nice for this university and lots of students like to have the experience. They are very well connected with the school and are in the public eye on move in day for freshmen. They are easy to talk with, to socialize with and believe in community service.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The university is very eclectic and has lots of opportunities for growth. I am into the gaming experience and have found groups to play the games with and feel accepted on this level. I would definitely choose a different roommate or vet the next one differently.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: The students at my school are friendly and easy to study with. They are interested in different topics as there are lot of majors available at this university. There are approximately 30,000 students so there are always groups to get involved in which would make you feel accepted.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: There are lots of parties in or near the campus with alcohol and drugs readily available. The students are good at having a designated driver in these situations and the peer pressure is not so harsh that you can be yourself and not partake if that is what you choose.

Weather: Living on campus is the best way to work with the weather in this area. When it does ice or snow the roads are usually hard to move around on as we do not experience much of this here and people do not know how to drive in it. Otherwise the weather is pretty mild although the summers can be very humid.

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: The college campus offers a lot of area attractions for the public. There are great museums, a new one was recently built, and several cultural centers in the area. There is a shopping center within walking distance with many restaurants to eat at. The sports at the college are amazing and the students are helpful and great to study with.

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.
