4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are a variety of transportation options, including simply walking, available to students. The cost of the campus bus system is free for students and the campus bus line travels to many of the places students would need to or want to go to. Also being located in Raleigh provides students with access to bus lines such as CAT and Triangle Transit which helps when students need to travel to places that may not be covered by the campus bus line.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a wide variety of off-campus housing available to students. The university even offers apartments that are technically off-campus but the cost of the apartments are paid on the students account along with their tuition and what ever meal plan they may have. This wide variety of housing options is pretty appealing, especially since many students decide to move off campus for their junior and senior years of college.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: For the majority of the year the weather has no real effect on campus experience. Rain and colder weather do make walking to class a hassle though, especially with all the bricks becoming slick when it rains. However since the University is in North Carolina snow hasn't been much of a factor, for me, to deal with.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I would definitely recommend bringing your own computer and printer because the ones available for student use can be hard to come by at certain "crunch" times in a semester and the paying to print in the library/labs on campus requires students to have another account, separate from the others already provided by the university, before being able to print. The way I see it we should have a pre-set up account with like a $100 dollar printing capability per school year, if the university is going to require such things(ie: account set up so that we pay to print).

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The college that I am in is one among several renowned colleges/programs offered but the university I attend. The specific college that I am has about a 90% job placement for its graduates.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The department is very friendly and keeps students informed about opportunities for internships, scholarships, and options upon graduation, along with opportunities for employment and research while still in college. They also help keep students aware of ways to prepare for work after graduating.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I do not use alcohol, therefore I am not a part of the group.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel really safe on campus. Campus police is visible.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation on and off campus is reasonable.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Few macs but a lot of pc's, available upon rent or open spaces

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have one of the best fan bases in the nation, even according to ESPN. There is a superb game day atmosphere.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I wish there was more religious backgrounds, but that is an age thing I believe.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a few rough classes, but that is the nature of school. Plus, that depends on your major. There are lots of internships and job opportunities if you are willing to look.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Some professors are more difficult than others, but honestly, you will see that pretty much anywhere you go.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: I love the aesthetics on campus. Even with all the brick, I think this is a beautiful campus.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's Raleigh, North Carolina, need I say more? It is now one of the top cities in the nation to live in.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers usually all work great, however, it is extremely nice to have your own laptop.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I don't really like the food here that much, but it's a personal choice. New dining options opened that I haven't visited yet.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love this school. It is beautiful and there are great people. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

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.
