Campus Food: Talley is overpriced and the food quantity is small. Dining halls have good food quantity but overpriced

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Certain dorms are more social than others but overall on campus housing is close to the gym, student center, and to classes. Overall the social atmosphere for on campus living needs some improvement. On campus is mostly only good for being close to classes and amenities.

Majors: The program I was in was somewhat challenging, but did not fully prepare myself for the career I desired and it was very difficult for any of the students to really get involved in the industry.

Overall Experience: I felt like when I applied that I had a little bit of a hard time gathering my information for the application itself, and then having everything "verified" by sending in my information via mail.

Campus Food: As an employee for University Dining, I have been exposed to several aspects of University Dining that I never realized existed before I started working there. For example, there are many different meal plans and ways to use them that offers great flexibility and very much convenience. Despite some students' opinions, I think that University Dining has many healthy options! As a Nutrition Science major, that is something that I paid attention to my first couple years here at State when I had a meal plan, and I was very pleased!

Now that I work for the dietitian of University Dining, it is cool to see all the work that goes into connecting with the NC State community through University Dining to make sure there is a lot of variety and always healthy options to fit everyones' needs. Everyone is covered basically everywhere they go- vegetarians, vegans, healthy eaters, and those with allergies never have to worry!

University Dining consists of great staff not only in the office but in the kitchens, restaurants, and dining halls as well. Many foods that are served are also home made recipes, and many are made in-house so they are guaranteed to be fresh and delicious. The options are endless and all needs are covered! Our award winning dietitian works directly with students to assist them in any way possible, and offers free nutrition-related advice and counseling. No wonder University Dining was named one of the Top 15 Healthiest Food-Service Industries in the Nation!!

Majors: As a Nutrition Science major, it is really cool to be taught by such great, distinguished professors. Most are very accepting and helpful, and they are all definitely knowledgable. Our department is a decent size, so while I don't know everyone in my major, I do see quite a few familiar faces from time to time in class.

The workload can be tough- you really have to apply yourself to your work, apply what you learn to experiences, and love science! There are a lot of aspects of science involved besides nutrition science (chemistry, biology, genetics, anatomy, biochemistry, microbiology, food science, etc.) that I didn't realize before, but its a good thing I like science.

Guys & Girls: Since NC State is such a large university (has a large number of students) basically everyone can find their fit and group of friends that they can get involved with and relate to. I know that several people I have met came to college with friends from high school, so there are a good bit who don't really open up to new friendships. However, everyone here definitely has NC State pride- you see it everyday walking around campus.

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.
