3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Great off campus apartments but its a little too pricey.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Go downtown and explore! So many great off-campus food choices. TRY Cosmic Cantina and Gubbs Kitchen!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: NCCU needs more food option places around campus. The cafe is doing better, too much pork and beef and not enough chicken. Need better vegetarian options.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Formosa street always has the best house parties.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing here is great. The older buildings could use some touch ups. STAY AWAY FROM BAYNES! Any other dorm is good.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Student Health is reliable but don't expect a nice fancy health facility. It is pretty average but they get the job done and make sure you're taken care of.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life but Greek life is a very prominent part of our campus. Almost every organization hosts special events on campus to get the students acquainted with each other and involved with the community. Everybody loves to see the Greeks come out around Homecoming time and probate season. You'll often see Greeks strolling at 10:40 break, in the Greek Bowl, at basketball games, parties, etc.

Athletics: We have a great athletic program with some great teams. Multiple teams have conference championship titles and have a great record. Students attend sporting events but mainly only attend football and men's basketball. Most other teams get very little support from the students.

Off-Campus Housing: For off-campus student housing, you really only have two options. Campus Crossing and Level 51 Ten (the Verge). Campus Crossing is very run down and not visually appealing but it is 5 minutes away from campus. The Verge is much nicer but it is farther away, about 15 minutes from campus. There are also a number of houses directly across the street from campus (literally, walking distance) that you could rent out.

Off-Campus Dining: Of course, you have your Cookouts, McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger Kings. But there are other spots to eat at around campus that have some really good food. Downtown Durham has some nice restaurants and if you venture slightly into Duke territory (about 5-10 mins away from campus) you'll find even more options and variety.

Administration: Enforcement of different rules vary vastly. The rules on visitation are nearly non-existent while the rules on drug and alcohol use on campus are very strict.

Scholarships: You really have to stay on the financial aid department because they're not going to just hand you your aid. You have to constantly make sure they are doing their job.

Party Scene: Pulse on Fridays is always fun. Luna is a good club too. Formosa has some good house parties, but be aware that the houses are fairly small. There's always kickbacks going on around campus, mostly in Richmond/New Res and Ruffin.

Campus Food: The cafeteria isn't horrible. Chicken Wednesdays are for the most part always good. We have a lot of new options on campus that you can use your flex with. W.O.W. and Pizza Hut are good. We have a new Subway and Chick-fil-A.

Campus Housing: I am a freshman and I stay in Eagleson. This is a dorm designated specifically for first-year students. Eagleson is corridor style so you share bathrooms with the other residents on your floor (2 bathrooms on each end of the floor). It does get noisy and a little crazy at times but it's bearable and can be fun.

Health & Safety: I had to go to student health and they helped me right away and also they have a womens center that people can go to if they have been sexually assulted, or the assulter might go to get help, they also offer counseling for drug abuse as well as many other things.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I want to join a sorority but I am only a freshman and i cant yet so i dont really know all the rules and regulations and things

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not really a sports fan, so I dont really go to the games or pay attention to things like that but lots of people are interested and i guess they have things for people who are interested i dont know because that is not really my intrests so i never really looked into it

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Other than the famous chains of resturants they have other places that are close to campus that serve good soul food just like your mom makes and it is good!! They do give eagles a discount and pretty much everywhere you go eagles get a discount.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It depends on how you look at it. They do their job, but for people who drink and smoke it gets pretty annoying always having to sneak around. If your careful enough though you wont get caught you just cant be too reckless because when you start to think that no one cares that is when you get kicked out.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Central helped with scholarships, you had a meeting with your advisor and your advisor helped you with all of your FASFA stuff if you needed help and they helped you so you could have all the money that you need to go to college

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Partys are good, but dont get too turnt where the RAs can tell because depending on who is down there you might get in trouble, but dont worry too much because more than likely the RAs are out twerking to.
