I am in the engineering program at NC State. I am fortunate that this program offers tutors through the engineering department which makes it easy to get that extra help. The school is continuously updating facilities like the current space age renovations to the student center. Also, I am from a small hometown with limited opportunities, so being in the capital city of North Carolina is amazing! There is always something cultural or fun to do here! My parents did not allow me to bring my car to school for my freshman year, but, not to worry, schools buses take me all over campus and city buses are available for anywhere else.

Mansion or Shack: Take Your Pick! The amount of off campus housing at North Carolina State University is immense. From numerous campus apartments to tons of 1-4 bedroom houses. There is also a variety in price range, which is incredibly important. For those students who wish to spend more and have a spacious living environment, large houses near campus are present. However, for those who are trying to spend cautiously, affordable apartments are a very short distance from campus.
