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.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: They do a solid job with dining. There are many options as there are places such as Chick-fil-a and Jason's Deli on campus!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a lot available to help protect students. There are blue lights every 100 yards or so. If you press the light, it alerts the campus police and they come to assist.

Diversity: There is so much diversity here. Accepting people of other backgrounds, beliefs, and lifestyles is very important at NC State. A big deal is made about doing so.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school policies in place are only positive for students. They allow us to make our own decisions, but are here to help us when we fail. They enforce the law, but allow for growth and freedom.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life at NC State, but I know many involved. Greek students have housing available to them, and I love the students involved.
