Overall Experience: I love being a part of the Wolfpack family. It truly feels like this is where I belong. I was upset when I didn't get into Chapel Hill, but now I'm glad that NC State accepted me, because this is where my heart is. I bleed wolfpack red and I wouldn't have it any other way. Waking up to this beautiful campus everyday is such a blessing.

Overall Experience: I've been to three high schools now. Moving around, I can see how school are all very similar. All Three of my schools have been about the same

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's honestly amazing, though I'm still trying to figure things out as I'm on my own for the first time. There were some things I was ill-prepared for, but I'm met a lot of good friends from across the state and the world, and I'm really looking forward to my next several years here.

Overall Experience: This university has given me so many opportunities; I currently work two jobs and am applying to study abroad. I work as a farmhand on one of the teaching units which is unique to NC State, and I also work for the scholars office. These experiences have had a great impact on my life at school by giving me the opportunity to gain experience in a field that I love. I also have an incredible support system with the Thomas Jefferson Program, the University Scholars Program, and my faculty advisers. My advisers have helped me pursue my dream of studying abroad as well as finding research and veterinarian opportunities. I love this university and am so grateful that is all dreams are within reach here.

Overall Experience: I could not have chosen a better college to start my college career. Everyone is very accepting on the campus and I have never met a group of people so welcoming before.

Overall Experience: The school has a lot to offer but you really have to put yourself out there to get involved. And the classes are extremely difficult much harder than I expected!

Overall Experience: Honestly I have absolutely nothing to complain about. The transition from high school into NC State was flawless. I started my classes in the same place when I left school(800 miles away), and I learn plenty of new things every day. The campus and professors have been great as well. Most every teacher I have is very helpful and engaged in class every day. Looking at sports and student life NC State is also very fun. Tickets to all athletic games are free, and the atmosphere at games is amazing, and I have met many friends at games. If I had to make one complaint, it would probably be about the dining halls. The food isn't great and gets old pretty quick.

Overall Experience: I love NC state! It's science and engineering oriented and it goes well with my major. The people are really nice; you can always ask for help. I'm glad that I made the right decision to come here and if I could do it all over again, I would still choose NC State( if I don't get accepted to an Ivy League).

Overall Experience: State has an incredibly unique connection to its students, as together we make up the Wolfpack. We know that together we are strong, and that sense of unity makes a very large school feel like home.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At school so far I have found that there are many opportunities to get help in all aspects. The school tries hard to get the students to shape up professional skills, find internships, get help with with classes, and meet other people. The bus system is great and comes with an app that shows where the next bus is and how long until it reaches every stop.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love this school but I cant afford this semester. I have had an extremely hard life with many short comings but god has always been faithful. I have survived a death of a parent, the other parent a drug user, absolutely no support from family, rape, domestic violence, and I am still going to this school. I'm excited for this year coming and all of my counselors are extremely supportive and their are tutors for absolutely everything here. I told them my dream of working for the Embassy as an Interpreter and instead of putting down or closing the door in my face , they lead me to the correct and best steps needed to take to pursue my dream ! #WolfPack #ForLife!

Overall Experience: The professors and classes are great, as well as the facilities. Almost all the people are very very nice. Some of the people are too close minded however. I love the friends I've made.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I started school not knowing what I wanted to major in, but through the help of advisors and their fantistic first year college program I was able to decide on a major in materials science and engineering! Not only do I love the challenges the school gives me academically, we also have loyal and kind students and I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Overall Experience: I really love NC State and all of the experiences I've had so far! I wish I would have known exactly what I wanted to major in before I came to college so I could have picked one that had what I was looking for.

Overall Experience: NCSU is a fantastic school, there's no doubt about it. The quality of instruction is very high, and almost all of the students actually put forth effort in their classes. Most students find the work challenging, but rewarding.

Personally, being of a more artistic bent, being surrounded by so many technically minded individuals can be a little stifling. Really, all this means is that I'm forced to go outside of my comfort zone to make friends -- when is that not a good thing? Still, people are usually respectful when I choose not to be social, and I appreciate that.

NCSU is also home to ROTC programs that represent the US Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines. It has a legacy of producing fine officers who go on to become generals in all four branches. I mention this because for the last two years, I have dedicated most of my time to participating as a cadet in NCSU's Air Force ROTC program. I have learned more about leadership, responsibility, and discipline in my two years there than I had in the nearly 19 years prior. Though I have recently decided to walk away from the program and the future that would have come with it, for personal reasons, I would not trade the experiences I had with AFROTC for anything in the world, and I will always treasure the relationships I formed as result.

Overall Experience: The first college I went to was in the middle of nowhere so it was kind of boring. However, academically it was great and it also had a family feeling.

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.
