Overall Experience: NCSU has one of the best job placement programs in the country. Counselors and advisors strongly encourage students to obtain job experience in their field of study before graduation. Employers often come to campus for recruiting in the form of career fairs and mixers.

Overall Experience: Courses are challenging and problem solving skills are emphasized more so than acquiring raw knowledge. Professors are engaging and passionate about their fields and this quality is contagious throughout classrooms and the student body as a whole.

Health & Safety: After being at NCSU for just a year now, I have the feeling that a lot of the students know the difference in right or wrong and are very alert to campus events. In addition, campus police and safety services are very welcoming and help facilitate a safe environment for learning.

Campus Housing: Living on campus, in my opinion, is one of the best scenarios for college living. You're no more than a 10 min. walk or bus ride from class and most of everything you need from dining halls to fitness centers and recreation are also within walking distance.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: NCSU has a great athletic culture on campus and even though some of the varsity teams aren't enjoying the best success the past couple of years, the enthusiasm and patriotism on campus towards the teams makes going to every game worthwhile.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At first, I was doubtful a large school such as NCSU could be a good fit for me. But after a visit, the small school feel and strong engineering school changed my perceptions about going to a large university.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life so I have very little opinion on the subject.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: As far as the focus on it is concerned, the school is well known for its athletics. The facilities available for said athletics make it wonderfully applicable to both athletes and non-athletes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Despite being such a large school, my major is small. As a result, I have gotten to know everyone on a first name basis in said major so it is a very family-like experience in terms of major specific education.

Overall Experience: Like in high school, the academic experience you have depends on the teachers. The teachers at NC State are considered to be very good. Most of the teachers that I have had have been fantastic. Of course there are a few teachers that just aren't very good, or don't connect with your style of learning. But in that case, there is always help from the tutoring centers, or you can find a study group from your class to find help. With it being a huge school, there are always a wide variety of classes and teacher you can take.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being one of the best schools for academics in the country, the job opportunities are great after college. Also, there is great student alumni connections. There are also several career fairs per year, featuring some of the biggest companies in the US and the best local companies coming to talk to students. The career services on campus is also helpful, and offers many opportunities, including assistance with finding jobs, externships, which are like job shadowing, and job interview/application and resume help.

Health & Safety: On campus is completely safe. There are blue lights all over campus, which are large posts with a blue light on the top that have a button you can press to contact the police in case of an emergency. I have never felt unsafe walking around campus at any time of the day or night. There are almost always other people walking around. There is also a good contacting system. They send emails to all ncsu email addresses if there is a safety concern. In big emergencies, such as the tornado threat we had, there is a loud announcement broadcast system that can be heard all over campus. The only issues happen off campus. Being right next to a big city, there is a decent amount of crime nearby.

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.
