3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm only a second semester psych major, so there's nothing crazy unique yet, but I'm satisfied with the academics.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I got straight A's this semester. There are classes for all levels. You can take very easy classes or you can take biochemistry. Use ratemyprofessor.com no matter what you do though!!

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: I HAD MORE FUN IN MIDDLE SCHOOL. Few people leave their little dorm rooms on a Saturday night and those who do, probably still won't drink or do anything actually fun. Frat parties are the biggest waste of time and usually get broken up before they could even try to become fun, and being a northerner, the clubs are more than pathetic with only like 50 people in them awkwardly dancing for a few hours and then leaving by 2 (when the clubs CLOSE....).

Weather: Coming from the north, Southern weather is amazing. NC weather is pretty bipolar though. One day it's sunny and 50 degrees and the next day it's pouring and 80 degrees. Some days, you'll change outfits three times.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love everything about this school except for the people at it. As a Northerner, this is NOT the place for me. I love the facilities and my classes are pretty good, but I am a very social person and the rural, boring student body drives me insane. Come to State if you are antisocial, but want great facilities and pretty decent food. DO NOT come to State if you're looking to make fun, energetic, passionate, unique friends. Almost everyone on campus is shy, judgemental, religious, and from North Carolina.

College Junior

Nightlife: Personally, I prefer more quiet nights in with just friends so I cannot accuratly describe the nightlife for the school.

Transportation: The Wolfline is highly effective for students across campus both during the school day and then also in the evening. The bigger issues arise whenever a student wants to go somewhere that is just recreational, those are a bit further. However, city transportation covers those places.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many locations right next to campus that are a bit less diverse, however the further that one gets from campus (likeā€¦ <10 minutes with a car) then the diversity of the food options grows.

College Junior

Weather: It's not oppressive, but people like different things.

3 College Junior

Parking: Need more spaces, but buses are effective.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Cheap, convenient, easy. Options are unique, nice.

4 College Junior

Academics: Extremely hard, but it's Nuclear Engineering.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining halls are ok, other options suffice.

5 College Junior

Facilities: We have fun on and off. New stuff is sleek.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Many opportunities, research, work, and academic.

3 College Junior

Majors: CODA is difficult, but fair for engineering.

3 College Junior

Majors: Extremely difficult, but faculty/students help.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Academics, athletics, social life. Overall great.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Policies are simplie, and the fun isn't removed.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Spirit is strong, and participation is solid.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Earlier is better. NCSU has rolling admissions.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is sufficient but nothing special.

Academics: It's a challenging major, but I definitely love most of my classes. Workload can be tough, but time management helps.

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking alone on campus, but I do use escorts at night to get back home. Most girls would say they're scared to walk alone at night.

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.
