Campus Dining: I have lived on campus for three years and have had a meal plan all three years. The variety of options we have available to use on our meal plan is incomparable to other schools in the state. Besides having three dining halls that consistently serve spectacular meals, we have popular chain venues such as Starbucks, Chic-fil-A, and Jason's Deli, as well as many other campus restaurants that include diner food, NY style pizza, mexican, asian, subs and wraps, and a bakery. With over 30 different places to choose from on the meal plan, you never have to worry about getting bored with the food options. I would highly recommend getting a meal plan if you are a student that lives on campus because the value of what you get for the price you pay, is better than anyone could do on their own.

Local Atmosphere: Love being just a few miles away from one of the fastest growing cities in America

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Campus dining at NCSU is wonderful! The dining halls are conveniently located and their hours are great. They offer several tasty options for each meal, as well as provide gluten-free options. They are sensitive to the needs of those with food allergies and make sure there is always variety for everyone regardless of their nutritional needs.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: So far, pretty much everyone I have met on NCSU's campus has been very friendly and helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Although I do not participate, I know a fair amount of illegal drinking and substance abuse does take place.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather here is mostly sunny with a few rainy days every now and then. I have loved the fall and watching all the leaves on campus change colors.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation for students is fairly convenient and easy to use. It is available when we need it.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are numerous computers available on campus for the use of students. However, the internet is not always reliable.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is fairly easy to acquire if you need it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not personally live on campus, but my friends that do are fairly happy with their accommodations. Living on campus has helped them to connect more and it also provides a great deal of convenience to get to class, the library, etc.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics at NCSU are very good. There are many majors/minors to choose from as well as courses offered. Degree audits are very helpful regarding registration. Workload can be tough but it helps me to learn the material. There are numerous areas to study on campus.

Nightlife: I have not been to any bars or clubs, but from what I've heard, they are pretty nice and not far away.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I have not had much experience regarding campus strictness, but from what I know, the NCSU policies are pretty strictly enforced.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Being so close to downtown Raleigh, there are a number of nice places to eat as well as several fast food options that are convenient and open late.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have had one experience with the health center so far. They were extremely helpful. I do see police cars fairly often. However, I am still not as comfortable walking alone in the dark.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: NCSU's campus is one of the most diverse places I have ever been. I see various nationalities everywhere I go, and work with several students with varying beliefs in my classes.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love going to the sporting events. NCSU students show a great deal of school spirit in going out and supporting the athletes. Intramural sports are also very popular. I played intramural flag football about a month ago and really enjoyed it.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: As the capital of North Carolina, Raleigh is an exciting city to live near, and there is always something going on. There are wonderful restaurants downtown. Sporting events are constantly going on as well.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't personally lived off campus yet, but am considering it for the future.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The only bad thing is that we don't have the full Nutrition program here, so I will have to do more schooling after earning my bachelor's degree. However, what we have is a great program with some of the finest and most recognized professors and advisors in this field. I would choose this again if I were to do it over again. Also, the job outlook is looking good for what I am going for!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: For my specific program, I am a Nutrition Science major in a small department (compared to most of the others in our college). This provides a nice, small school feel where I can really get connected with the other students who have the same major I do, as well as have relationships and direct communication with the faculty and professors. The only downside of my major is that NC State doesn't have the full Nutrition curriculum/ program, which will require me to do another year or so of school after earning by bachelor's degree here.

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.
