4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus allows you to meet many people and enjoy the facilities the campus has to offer.

Off-Campus Dining: For those that are adventurous I highly recommend going to cameron village. Especially The Flying Biscuit they have delicious breakfast foods and southern cooking.Picco Italia is great if you are feeling italian food. K&W Cafeteria, Chik-Fil-A and Moe's Grill are there too if you want something familiar. Noodles & Company are always a good choice if you are not sure what you are in the mood for. There is even a really nice (slightly pricey) Brixx Pizza. Their Thai pizza is amazing! I haven't been everywhere yet though!

Campus Housing: It honestly depends on where you live and who you room with. The tucker and owen are not the best...or the cleanest. While Wolf Village is very nice with amenities and a bus to take you to your classes. However, you may only live there as a sophomore and up. There is also a great possibility that you will be living with 2-3 people you don't know in your apartment. Risk for conflict is high.

Bragaw has insect and rat problems. Lee has had an issue with bats. Just beware of certain areas and spray your room down to keep them at bay.

Campus Food: I absolutely hate the meal time periods. If you mess up and eat at 10:45 for "breakfast" it actually goes on the lunch meal period so then you can't use a meal again until after 4:30.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus is beautiful! I loved living on campus for my first year. The only reason I didn't rate it as the best is because of the style of dorm I lived in. I lived in a hall style dorm which was fine my only issue was with the bathroom situation. It isn't my schools fault it was just that some of the other girls weren't as clean as they should have been.

Off-Campus Housing: I will be living off campus for the 2015-2016 school year and on . Most of the off campus options are still close to school and have shuttles that will take you to and from school and they are pretty affordable. Way cheaper than on campus living.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Its so easy to find a party! Nightlife is booming!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places near school and most of them stay open pretty late which is awesome!

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think our campus strictness is pretty average on most things. If caught with drugs or alcohol then they are pretty strict.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It took forever for me to receive any aid. They had me in the verification process for MONTHS. Then by the time the process was completed I didn't receive a couple of the grants that I was originally supposed to get because they had already given out the money. It absolutely sucked and left me having to make payments through the whole school year so that I could get my into my classes and not lose them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: A little bit below average

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks only like other Greeks.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love going to school in the ACC where sports athletics is huge. It's fun to have intramural options as well.

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.
