3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I would definelty settle down in Raleigh after I graduate, but probably a bit away from the university, just so I can get away from the college party scence and start a career

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports facilites on campus are pretty good, not the best in the country. Studnets are very involved in sports on campus most students have been to a football game or aleast know if we won or lost and how the game was.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: With Hillsbourgh Street and downtown Raleigh just a few minutes walk and drive away, NC State has a great variety of food options off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It is pretty easy to go out and party. I live in a dorm that allows alcohol, which makes it easier to get alcohol. When it comes to classes most professors don't care if you attend class or not, but if you ask for help and you haven't been to class don't expect them to help you very much. Campus police are fairly nice as long as you don't do anything wrong.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Unless you know go looking for drugs you won't find any. However I smell weed on a weekly bases.

2 College Senior

Computers: The campus tech support is not helpful, the wireless availability in the classrooms is awful, and the computers in labs/in the library are ALWAYS full.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: At football games the police are not very strict about drinking as long as you are respectful

Local Atmosphere: Lots of things to do in the Raleigh area. Concerts, museums, plays, malls, etc.

5 College Senior

Diversity: The ethnic heritage of my friends is extreamly diverse and we all get along great. There are no challenges to racial diversity or any other diversity category. Everyone at NCSU is very accepting no matter your lifestyle.

Nightlife: Only a 5 minute cab ride to downtown raleigh, and there are also many bars on Hillsborough Street within walking distance.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: There is some alcohol use at this school, but if you don't drink you will not be looked at differently at all. It is more of a social fun thing rather than peer pressure.

4 College Senior

Athletics: We have a great school spirit for both football and basketball games.

4 College Senior

Transportation: The wolfline bus system is great, besides the smelly non-ncsu people who use it too since it is free for anyone.

Academics: There are so many great opportunities to work for NCSU, in the dining halls, coffee shops, etc.

Academics: NCSU does not have the DPD courses I need to become a Registered Dietitian. And the biochemistry 351 class is horrible, do not take it with Hardin unless you want to spend 20 hours a week or more studying and going to review sessions.

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.
