3 College Junior

Weather: Local weather hasn't had any affect except for delays and a couple closing. The university makes sure it is a safe environment for students.

3 College Junior

Majors: If I could do it all over again, I would but differently. I plan to attend dental school and become an orthodontist. I feel like if dental school doesn't work then I won't be able to do much with my degree.

College Junior

Majors: I have never had a internship.

1 College Junior

Academics: The science majors and engineers have it the worst. The classes are definitely challenging

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are so many different greek organizations that one can be involved in. It seems like a fun and interesting group to be apart of. I have attempted to be apart of the Divine Nine but, that didn't work out.

Nightlife: Nightlife around here gets pretty repetitive and boring. I went out freshman year a little of sophomore and after that, it wasn't fun anymore. The best parties are normally during homecoming and the best clubs are downtown Raleigh.

4 College Junior

Computers: I will say NCSU does a good job at making sure the resources we need on campus are available, technology. There are numerous computers that can be checked out in the libraries as well as a few labs. The network has always been good and the speed is remarkable.

Campus Housing: Living on campus at NCSU isn't too bad. The dorms are spacious and more so than some surrounding schools. Best thing I would say is the lenient-rules and the worst thing is the distance to classes.

Health & Safety: NC State is huge... it's scary at night time alone.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have a lot of food options on Western BLVD and Hillsborough street.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I think off campus living it too much of a hassle because of distance and price.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. I am a resident advisor and my building's community is great!

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't party so it's hard for me to judge.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I definitely am aware that it happens, but if you don't want to be around it you can literally avoid it easily.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: I have never had a problem.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Raleigh is a good city to be in because there is plenty of things to do on weekends. Lots of parks and shops to go to, however as far as nice places to eat, its typically just chain restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am still trying to get through the process of getting into my desired degree, its the exact thing i want to study but they just need to let me in.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have already worked in the field so all i need is the degree that can give me some more credibility. At state, the CEM degree will do exactly that for me

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I transfered here so I see myself as too old to put myself through all the hazing, but if I was here freshman year i would have joined

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.
