3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe on campus and there many ways you can make yourself safer by not doing things that put you in harm's way. The problem is that the campus is so big, it is hard to make every situation safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In the life sciences program, the classes are very challenging, but the professors are very knowledgeable and accessible to students. Classes are big, but if you seek help, you can find it among the professors and other students. I feel I am getting a good education and foundation for my future so far.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I joined a sorority immediately and am very much a part of Greek life on campus. I like my core group of friends, but will be glad when new, younger officers begin planning events and activities.

Athletics: My first choice was to attend a Southeast Conference school, so I don't believe the ACC is quite as good, especially in football. However, NC State is a major university and devotes a tremendous amount of resource to making sure they are competitive on a national level.

The school also makes quality athletic facilities available to students and there are extensive intramurals, exercise classes and other opportunities to participate in virtually any kind of recreation you want.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel that my school is very good at preparing students for the real world. The life sciences school gets you involved your freshman year taking classes that are related to your potential major, which I believe will get me ahead later in college.

I wish there were better social activities and options and that the main sports venue was on campus, not a 15 minute drive away.

Party Scene: There really are not many places to go

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I personally do not drink or use drugs. There are lots of people who do not as well

1 College Freshman

Diversity: If you are a white, Christian, or preppy student then you are at the right school. As a mixed race, less religious, nerdy student I often feel very out of place and find it hard to fit in. This also makes it very hard to make any friends

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus police offers an escort service at night

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are great and most of the school tends to be within the department of majors. Although it tends to feel divided from this, its nice to be grouped with students with similar interests.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are lots of job opportunities after leaving college. A huge emphasis on career fairs throughout the year helps a lot

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Rooms are small. Most rooms require for the bed to be lofted to fit the furniture already in the room

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not very much greek life

3 College Freshman

Athletics: More fans than students really support the team and attend games

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not much happens on campus. It is not very lively. Most people study at the library all the time

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus takes safety very seriously.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed the courses I was taking and the professors teaching them. They were very informative and interesting classes. I learned a lot from the courses and I was able to apply some of the information.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NC State is not an easy or party school, so a degree is highly desirable from this school. I feel confident that I could get a good job after I graduate from NC State.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life but there are a lot of options for Greek life at school.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are great for athletics and the school spirit towards sports is exciting.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They are very knowledgeable about the material and very helpful when teaching it. They offer a lot of opportunities to students for experience. The community of campus is very welcoming and friendly.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Superb school for any kind of students. Helpful in promoting talents, advising and well being. You would enjoy being a wolf.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not a sports-person but NCSU is known for great sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: TRIO allows you to get into classes as early as seniors! It is a great program to be apart of and so helpful in making sure you are provided in every way you need: figuring out classes, what to get involved with, what scholarships to apply for, etc. Coaches and advisors are AMAZING: so helpful in making sure you feel well-equipped in classes, degree, and life in general. Great experience so far: not as scary as I was expecting for a big school, thought I'd get lost in the crowd. But they care about YOU (or at least once you get past the orientation).

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.
