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).

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe because there are blue lights that call 911 in your view anywhere on campus. I get nervous walking home at night from the library but nothing ever happens and you are able to get a police escort to walk with you back home.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living in Tucker Hall on the co-ed floor. There was always something going on and always someone to talk to. I could leave for my classes less than 10 minutes before they start and I can walk to Talley for food in less than 5 minutes. It is great having friends so close together.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is really fun. I hate how I live in a duplex with another sorority while our next door neighbors are sororities living in multimillion dollar mansions.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Part of my decision to go to NC State was because of the great athletics. Unfortunately the teams are very unpredictable, we can beat ranked teams and lose to unranked teams that are in a lower division. There are always plenty of fans at games and everyone wears NC State clothing.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school and the fact that I get the full college experience. The professors and students are nice, there is a lot to do, the libraries are great and there are plenty of places to eat. There is a huge sense of school spirit,pride and community.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would choose it again but it does group requirements by the type of major or college it falls under which leads to an individual taking courses they will not necessarily need in their field.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The environment of NC State is amazing. Everyone is very spirited and has so much school pride. My Advisor is great, she is so helpful and supportive. I made the right decision choosing NC State.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: With the presence of the blue light safety poles, and a number to call if I ever need an escort, NCSU has done an incredible job to ensure my safety and allow me to be confident in knowing that I live and attend a safe campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had a great experience thus far with all my professors and their willingness to help me in any way that they see fit. My professors realize what a top-notch establishment NC State is and do their best to stay up to par.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: North Carolina State University has not only the best engineering program in the state, but one of the best in the nation and the world. Applying for a job in an engineering field being backed by a degree from this incredible University is more than a huge accomplishment, but a guarantee to the company that I will be a great choice for hire.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Unlike many of my sophomore peers, I decided to remain on campus in a dorm for my second year at NCSU. My experience with on-campus living has been enjoyable, allowing me to make friends while remaining close to my classes and food options. The only complaint about on campus living that can be fixed by living in an apartment is the fact that I currently share one bathroom with 7 other ladies, which can sometimes take a lot of patience and compromise.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: From what I've seen thus far on campus, we have a respectable Greek life at NC State. The Greek court is comprised of well-maintained houses. My friends who are part of sororities or fraternities on campus don't act as though they are better than anyone else, and other non-Greek students usually don't talk poorly about our Greek life.

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.
