College Sophomore

Administration: I really don't know much about this topic

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Be sure to apply for scholarship both through your college and through the university as a whole, double scholarship opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: One Earth at Talley is the best food quality and Chic-fil-A in the Atrium is always good. The creamery has incredible icecream. Otherwise, i try to cook at home

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms on campus have a great location but some are far away from campus buildings that the perk of living close to everything is lost. I live in greek village which isn't very nice right now but is under a 10 year remodeling plan that will make living here much more enjoyable.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus administration is very reasonable and realistic considering it is a college campus. They are very strict on parking rules. Campus police seem to be friendly and available when needed. Alcohol is not monitored extremely closely, only when students are being blatant and stupid with it. Drugs are under control on campus. Have not seen or heard of any protests on campus. Visitation rules are very laid back.

Scholarships: It does not seem there is much financial aid available from the school. I applied, but the information on paperwork needed was not very straightforward. When applying for financial aid for the summer semester, I went in and talked to someone in the financial aid department; they were very vague with the details as well. I had to wait for a decision on financial aid until after the payment was due for tuition. It did not make much sense to me.

Campus Food: The only thing that really bothers me about the campus meal plan is the high price of eating in dining halls when just using dining dollars. It seems the equivalencies are pretty reasonable. And although the dining halls close early, Talley stays open a little later, so there is always that option.

Campus Housing: The cost of on campus housing seems expensive, but it is reasonable compared to prices you will find for off campus housing considering the free laundry, social atmosphere, and close proximity to class buildings. The off campus dorm, University Towers, is actually where I stayed my freshman year. While University Towers is slightly more expensive and laundry is not free, you pay for the convenience of having a dining hall in your dorm and sharing a bathroom with only three other people rather than seven. But after seeing friends' dorm rooms, I would not have had a problem living on campus for my freshman year. I simply did not because my roommate was already committed to the off campus dorm. I also believe on campus housing lends itself to a more social atmosphere if you are open to it.

Administration: I wish they are more strict in drinking in dorms, drug policies.

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.
