4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Check ratemyprofessor.com or ask friends. The classes get smaller as you get into your actual major. A typical Chem101 class is an auditorium with 400+ kids but a chem 2 is up to 50. General ed classes are huge.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: NC State has a large alumni community and is located in great part of the country for upcoming job opportunities and development. RTP, Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh all have a lot going on.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Student health offers lots of services including dental, massages, various therapies, and group services if you're interested.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are old, but not unlivable. Depending on where you live you will be living in tight quarters. Less space = closer to class

3 College Junior

Athletics: Being an NC State fan can be tough at times, but being an active student is not. The gym has good hours and offers free memberships to students and the facilities are getting a lot better including powerlifting, new locker rooms, etc.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: NC State is a HUGE school. While most people can see this as a negative thing, I see it as a positive since that means there are so many opportunities. There are lots of students interested in similar things, lots of organizations, lots of Greek Life things (if that's your thing), etc. There are also a lot of professors who are willing to help you in classes or working in research. NC State is known for lots of things but any major you pick here will be a good one. GO PACK!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors here are either decent, great, or downright awful and you never know which one you'll get. I have had great teachers and awful ones, and the courses where the professors were better were the classes I did better in. The classes can be super challenging especially in engineering.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had no success getting any internships this summer but I am also just finishing my sophomore year at college. Many of our departments have 90% and above job placement ratings but others do not.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: For most of the time, campus is safe. I as a female feel okay walking by myself across campus even at night. However, there have been many sexual assaults in the dorms and to students off campus. We have also had three engineering students commit suicide in the last year which is terrible but the engineering department has made no moves to help prevent future suicides.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are super old and need to be renovated soon. In my last dorm there was a huge ant problem, like it was an infestation. Then following the ants were spiders (the ants are food) and that was awful.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Our greek life is currently on really thin ice after a few incidences in the last year, but the people are generally nice.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletics department is great and they still demand good grades from the athletes.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our school is good in some areas, great in others, and awful in others. Football season is fun even when we loose, but professors can really ruin a class for you.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Some teachers are great, but some are not as passionate, which makes it harder to learn and understand material. Music (band and marching band) are the best parts of this school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For one who had previously loathed attending a local university so close to home and where she went to high school from, it really has paid off from and academic and educational standpoint. As a transfer student, I have seen it in a different light and have the opportunity to compare it to the additional schools i have attended. I would choose this school again in a heartbeat. Year after year, it is consistently ranked as one of the top university in the nation, the connections and ties to the RTP area in Raleigh make that much easier for its students to find internships and future jobs within accelerated programs.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletics department at NCSU, is in a whole HUGE. I can contests to this from when i was a little girl growing up. The Student and alumni spirit is very contagious and loyal.. However, over the years, I have seen teams that are major draws such as the mens basketball team, and football team struggle through their ups and downs. Their programs have not been very consistent lately, and seem to struggle finding their mojo and consistency as I have once seen them posses.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I appreciate that there are emergency alarm posts everywhere on campus. The issue of sexual assault could be discussed more on campus. The resources available could be made more public.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are average to good. I have had two so far that are completely terrible but I believe they are outliers.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is very helpful and assisted me in putting together my resume for future jobs. Many internships are mentioned in classes, although I have not actively searched for one myself yet.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not very involved with Greek life but it seems as though they get the best housing situations.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym is very nice but it could be added upon to have more free weight rooms for student use, as the current ones are not large enough to accommodate many students at the same time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really love this school due to its Exploratory Studies Program and helpful advisors and counsellors.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Wolfpack is very spirited. There is always enthusiasm for our team.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love where I live but it is very expensive; if the social perks weren't so great I would not live on campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
