Overall Experience: Panther Creek was a great high school. Its academics and extracurricular activities were recognized nationwide. Although it was a pretty large school of about 3000 students, the academic environment was mostly challenging and the quality of education was high. Panther Creek also implemented the SMART lunch program which helped me catch up in my classes often.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love this school but I cant afford this semester. I have had an extremely hard life with many short comings but god has always been faithful. I have survived a death of a parent, the other parent a drug user, absolutely no support from family, rape, domestic violence, and I am still going to this school. I'm excited for this year coming and all of my counselors are extremely supportive and their are tutors for absolutely everything here. I told them my dream of working for the Embassy as an Interpreter and instead of putting down or closing the door in my face , they lead me to the correct and best steps needed to take to pursue my dream ! #WolfPack #ForLife!

Overall Experience: The professors and classes are great, as well as the facilities. Almost all the people are very very nice. Some of the people are too close minded however. I love the friends I've made.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I started school not knowing what I wanted to major in, but through the help of advisors and their fantistic first year college program I was able to decide on a major in materials science and engineering! Not only do I love the challenges the school gives me academically, we also have loyal and kind students and I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Overall Experience: I really love NC State and all of the experiences I've had so far! I wish I would have known exactly what I wanted to major in before I came to college so I could have picked one that had what I was looking for.

Overall Experience: NCSU is a fantastic school, there's no doubt about it. The quality of instruction is very high, and almost all of the students actually put forth effort in their classes. Most students find the work challenging, but rewarding.

Personally, being of a more artistic bent, being surrounded by so many technically minded individuals can be a little stifling. Really, all this means is that I'm forced to go outside of my comfort zone to make friends -- when is that not a good thing? Still, people are usually respectful when I choose not to be social, and I appreciate that.

NCSU is also home to ROTC programs that represent the US Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines. It has a legacy of producing fine officers who go on to become generals in all four branches. I mention this because for the last two years, I have dedicated most of my time to participating as a cadet in NCSU's Air Force ROTC program. I have learned more about leadership, responsibility, and discipline in my two years there than I had in the nearly 19 years prior. Though I have recently decided to walk away from the program and the future that would have come with it, for personal reasons, I would not trade the experiences I had with AFROTC for anything in the world, and I will always treasure the relationships I formed as result.

Overall Experience: The first college I went to was in the middle of nowhere so it was kind of boring. However, academically it was great and it also had a family feeling.

Overall Experience: Although NC State is a large university, you can make it as large or small as you need or want. There are large clubs and small mentor groups. It offers a challenging educational opportunity, but it's also a fun campus with lots of student activities.

Overall Experience: NC State is the best place to be! The size allows you to find a niche where you the campus is made a little smaller. It's the best of both worlds.

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.
