3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Communication and Research will be the best options to get aid.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Eventhrough it is a large school, if you are active on campus, you will have an AMAZING TIME.

4 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

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.

Administration: I think the rules are fair.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am still trying to figure out how to qualify for financial aid.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The options in the dining hall get old.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great way to meet people and it's easy to get to class.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Administration can be lenient, but they are serious when it comes to the honor code.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Fountain is disgusting, but the Atrium recently got a great smoothie place and it already has Chick fil a. The biggest problem with meal plans is that equivalency amount rarely covers the cost of a full health meal.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are very close to academic campus, but the rooms are tiny.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have only received emails and invites to partake in off-campus housing. I personally found an extremely affordable 4 bedroom house that is 7 minutes away from main campus. It is in a residential neighborhood which is perfect if you're like me and do not want noisy neighbors who are partying til the wee hours of the morning. I highly recommend finding a place off campus on you're own. If I had to guess, it will be more affordable and also allow someone to find the perfect amenities they are looking for.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I personally like to try new things every time I go out to enjoy a meal. I like to find the oddest thing on the menu and also something that I couldn't cook at home. More of the local resturants you'll find downtown and then near main campus you'll find a whole bunch of chains. The awesome thing about NCSU's location is downtown is only 5 minutes away. A lot of the restaurants here have daily food specials. One of my favorite places is the Hibernian on Glenwood. They have an open rooftop and they have a different food special every day. For example, you can get a huge burger and fries on Mondays for $5. What a steal!

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I personally did not start attending North Carolina State University until I was the age of 23. So this changes my perceptions of the party scene. I could not tell you the last time I went to a house party because people typically over the age of 21, unless you're in a fraternity or sorority, you tend to go downtown. Glenwood South is more of the bar and restaurant scene, and Fayetville Street is more of the dance clubs. So which ever one of those is your scene will determine your night experience.

5 College Junior

Administration: From my experience, it seems as if North Carolina State University has rules that they abide by. None of their rules seem to be outrageous or unfair, but just common knowledge. If someone uses common sense and follows the rules, then they will be absolutely fine and never need to experience any sort of reprimand.

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.
