3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like my residence hall, and my room is at the end of the hall, so it's a bit bigger than the other ones, so I'm happy. But my residence hall is set up better than other ones on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Hillsborough St. has a pretty good variety of sit-in restaurants and Western Blvd has all the fast food. Cameron Village is close by, and there are pretty good places there too. There's a Harris Teeter!!!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You can usually find a kickback somewhere on the weekends depending on who you know. But on the weekends, ESPECIALLY around breaks, downtown is poppin'.

Overall Experience: Some classes are GREAT, and some are the OPPOSITE. But that comes with any university. Overall, it's been a pretty good experience so far.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't hear a lot about sexual assault on our campus, and there are plenty of resources available to ensure health and safety.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I live in the Arts Village and am surrounded constantly by artsy kids, so I may be biased, but there are SO many talented, diverse people at this university. They do so much!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I believe NC State has the best Graphic Design major in North Carolina. I know this is where I'm supposed to be.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't really have an opinion here nor there about administration. I just know that if you park in the wrong place, you WILL get towed.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Raleigh is the capital city, so there is a LOT to do. Plus, NC State is about 2-3 miles from downtown. It's a short drive away from the night life.

Athletics: We have an incredible amount of school spirit! I think that says a lot.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: State's campus is very safe. There have been very few instances of crime this semester. Of course there were some but you have to expect that with a school of 40,000 people. There are always two visible emergency lights anywhere on campus that you can go to in order to call for help. There is an escort service for in case you are alone at night - police will walk with you wherever you need to go.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not get any financial aid because the school thought my family made too much money even though we are struggling to pay tuition.

Athletics: Our teams do not always do very well but you can always count on the students and other fans to be cheering like crazy when they are at the games. It is easy to get a ticket for most games and they are free but sometimes it can be hard if it is a really big or important game.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus. This year I live in a dorm and next year I will live in my sorority house. I plan to live off campus my junior and senior year and I can't wait. I have seen some great off campus housing that my friends live in. Many apartment and houses are very close to campus but there are definitely some distant options. I will probably try to find something close because parking is pretty expensive and hard to find.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am in a sorority and I love the feel of knowing there are over a hundred girls that will look out for me if I am at a party or just having a problem with something. I love giving back to the community and it is a great way to find opportunities to do so. Some sororities and fraternities have very nice houses but many are run down office buildings. State is building new houses for each chapter that are extremely nice but only two are done so far and it will take many years before the rest are finished. Non-Greek students tend to think that Greek students are stuck up and rich and just get by because their parents have money but that is not the case at all. Although they look poorly upon Greeks, they have no problem showing up at their parties and they always have a great time.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are a ton of attractive people on campus, it makes the walks to class pretty interesting. There are all different types of people with different interests and different styles. People range from preppy to goth to hipster and everything in between.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options for dining on Hillsborough Street. There are also plenty of places open late and plenty that deliver.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not know much about Greek Life. However, the fact many freshman are involved with Greek Life only a month in says something about how easy it is to get into a fraternity or sorority.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet, but I plan to look more into them later on. The career fairs are very helpful as is E-Pack.

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.
