5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I love NC State. The guys range in interests as some are in fraternities and some are religious, but we can all come together as one. The girls are similar. There is a ton of diversity here and it is awesome. We are one. We are the Wolfpack.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students at NC State are very friendly and spirited. Students frequently speak to strangers.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I think the females on campus are probably similar to most females on any college campus. Some females look like they put a lot of time into their appearance and others probably just rolled out of bed.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people on campus are pretty friendly. It is easy to coexist with a diverse population on this campus.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is pretty fratty. A lot of southern charm and fashion. You can tell who's in a sorority of a fraternity but that's not a bad thing. Some people dress differently, they're just the minority. Lots of monograms and bow ties. Everyone looks very friendly though

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

With more than 25,000 students, there is bound to be someone with the ideal personality for you. NC State, unlike UNC-Chapel Hill, is known for having more guys than ladies. This is stereotypically expected, since NCSU is recognized as an engineering school, which tends to attract more males than females. However, with programs like Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), the female population is on the rise, and the boy-to-girl ratio is evening out.

NCSU also has a large agriculture program bringing in the good ol' Southern boys. The boys at State vary from the preppy, boat shoe, popped-collar-wearing frat boys to the tractor-loving rednecks. It is the same with the ladies-you will find pearl accessorized, Vera Bradley-wearing sorority girls, as well as workout fanatics and women scientists. The girls, as a whole, seem to outshine the guys in looks, playing in a league above them, but with Raleigh being a top city for singles, the dating scene is hot for anyone. Boys, don't be afraid to venture out and test the waters at Meredith and Peace College.

Hookups or Relationships?
Every weekend there are plenty of hookups to find at the parties and bars around the area. However, there is always the potential of meeting someone that is interesting enough to begin a relationship with.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Most students seem to find their new main squeeze out at parties, through mutual friends, or at bars. Drinking games are also a good way to meet people. Sometimes, the kid next you may just catch your eye-just beware of the dreaded "beer goggles." Also, becoming a member of a fraternity or sorority is a sure way to meet the opposite sex, since so many organizations have mixers together. Oftentimes, the mixers are free for the ladies, drinks are available, and a chartered bus takes you all to and from the location. The mixers are also sometimes held at shag clubs like Reds Beach Music, which helps relieve the tension by allowing you to just dance the night the away.
Dress Code
Most students around campus could be described as what parents might call "clean cut." Many guys and girls wear simple polo shirts and jeans or skirts. There are, however, a number of students who will rock the overalls, while others will just roll out of bed in pajamas or come to class in gym clothes all ready to hit the gym and work off some school-induced stress. Go to class in whatever is comfortable. If you hate what you're wearing one day, or it is laundry day for you, chances are, it's laundry day for a thousand other students on campus, as well.
