5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have a great system called WolfAlert that warns students if any threat to safety has occurred. There are campus police constantly roaming the campus along with fire marshals. I have never felt unsafe at my university.

Overall Experience: I think the quality of my education is superb here at NC State. I have been under the instruction of some of the most knowledgeable and personable professors. I have not had an instructor yet whom I questioned there abilities or teaching styles. There are plenty of classes to choose from but slots do fill up rather quick and it is hard to get into desired classes.

Overall Experience: Almost every day I receive an email about a job/internship opportunity from my advisor or from the presidents of my joined clubs. There are career fairs galore to expose students to the workforce. NC State really helps you to find a job.

Campus Housing: I believe the dorms are just as they would be anywhere else. University Towers is a very nice place to stay for freshmen. It is sort of a hotel type of dorm. Cost, convenience, and ease of registering for housing is fine.

Greek Life: I believe the Greek life is a fun experience for students here. I am not in a sorority so I cannot say for sure but most girls seem to enjoy the social interactions.

5 College Junior

Athletics: State has a great athletics program. The high expectations for our sports teams promote competitive athletics across the board. Some years football and basketball can let you down with mediocre performance but the fan base will never diminish. We love our school and strive to properly support our athletics.

Overall Experience: I love my school. NC State offers one of the best college experiences possible through competitive academics, involved student life, wonderful student services, and spirited athletics. I transferred to State after my freshmen year elsewhere and it was quite possibly the best decision I have ever made. I would love to highlight university dining for their efforts to promote healthy eating around campus. Nutrition is something I deeply care about therefore I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the variety of wholesome options offered on campus.

Greek Life: Many people are members of greek life, but those that are not are indifferent to them. They seem like they have a lot of fun and are a very close group of friends.

Academics: My experience so far has been great. It's easy to register for classes and the professors are helpful. It's a fairly heavy workload, but that is to be expected in college.

Diversity: This school isn't the most diverse though it is way more diverse than my hometown. The amount of racism/microaggressions vary with the college that you are part of in the university. I don't experience as much racism but I am in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences while my roommate experiences more racism than me and she is in the College of Natural Resources

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe here. The cops are very helpful and will give you rides late at night. Still, I wouldn't go walking out late at night by myself if I don't have too.

Greek Life: I have a suitemate in Greek Life and she seems to really be enjoying herself. They do some service projects here but I mainly hear about the parties and socials. All in all there isn't too much of a negative look on them over here.

Overall Experience: The food isn't the best but it's an amazing environment to be in. Everyone here has a strong sense of community and the professors are very friendly and helpful. Being an out-of-state student, the feeling of having a "home away from home" is very important for me and this school has just that.

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.
