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.

4 College Senior

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.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I would recommend to live at University Towers, or Bragaw.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Campus dining has really improved since I've been a student at NCSU. The dining halls have so many great options and an awesome salad bar. They have many vegan and vegetarian items available each day, and are really catering towards students with food allergies (like nuts and gluten).

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love this campus! The people, the classes, the extracurricular activities are awesome. I am so glad I chose to go to NCSU since they have a football team and many other things that I was looking for in a college. I just wish they had all the DPD classes for a Nutrition major.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Hillsborough Street is so close to campus with tons of dining options including vegan and vegetarian options!

Nightlife: I don't really attend any.

Local Atmosphere: Close to Raleigh but not many take advantage of it

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Partying for under age people will only happen if you are in a frat, a girl, or a risk taker.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Internet network is horrible in the dorms

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Good things are sinks in the rooms. The dorms are very noisy and far away from classes. In my building there was sewer flies in the showers of every mens bathroom and no one ever did anything about it. THE BATHROOMS ARE HORRIBLE

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Bus system to get around campus is easy but to get around the area/city isn't.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I am undecided, in the First Year College, which should really be called "the people who didnt get into engineering". The opportunity to explore is alright, but they really do want you to jump into a major.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Good amount but mostly just fast food.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wouldnt choose this school unless I was a engineering or science student. The school is run completely around those students and everyone else is just a paycheck

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Dorms do not feel really safe due to crime alerts and cars speeding by at 2 in the morning. People getting taken away by ambulances in the night due to drinking too.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Most people are white engineering/science students who are very conservative, judgmental, and close minded.

Weather: Carolina weather is great, late November and still 70 degrees sometimes.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food here is bad and there is very limited options. There is only three dining halls that all serve the exact same food and only two food courts for equivalency. The equivalency program is also a scam because you can only purchase one item at a place due to inflated prices.

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.
