Off-Campus Housing: My current off campus apartment is terrible. I live in Wolf Creek. I would not recommend it to anyone due to the average behavior of the residents and the horrible response in action from the leasing office. The one good thing is that it provides a shuttle to and from campus running late into the evening. The price is also decent and the apartment is furnished with all rates included.

My new apartment that I'm living in is Campus West and it's going to be amazing. There is 24h security and the price is better than Wolf Creek for a three bedroom apartment. It's the same distance from campus but it's right beside Lake Johnson which is awesome.

Athletics: Throughout the year, sports are a huge deal to students. In the fall we have football and the energy and excitement is amazing while attending a football game and sitting in the student section. In the spring we have basketball and it's the same if not great in level of excitement. Our team performs relatively well but of course there's always room for improvement.

Scholarships: Up until this past year, the financial aid process was awesome. I filled out my FAFSA and had no issues receiving the aid I needed. This past year though I was chosen for the verification thing with the government and that sucked a lot because my brother had to do it too. We had to fill out forms that seemed really unnecessary and request IRS transcripts. Thankfully I was still able to receive my aid even though the process was a huge hassle.

Campus Housing: While I lived on campus, I lived in two different dorm rooms. Both were very close to my classes so I was able to roll out of bed and walk to class within ten minutes which was great. The roommate matching wasn't all that good. I have issues with my first roommate but housing worked well with me to help me move out of that room and into a room with a roommate that I wanted to live with.

Party Scene: Campus is right next to downtown so it's not too far of a distance to walk or get a cab! There is a wide variety of bars and clubs in downtown that there's no need to ever have a boring night!

Campus Quality: Not only is there a huge amount of diversity, but students are strongly encouraged to get involved in campus activities and groups.

Diversity: The school emphasizes diversity and embracing it on our campus. I have personally not seen any discrimination or ignorance towards certain races, orientation, etc. People acknowledge that others are different and it is accepted.

Local Area: Raleigh is a fairly large city (compared with other cities in NC). I think anyone could fine something to do for a reasonable price.

Athletics: You have to be a fan of athletics at this school. It is a point of pride as much as science is.

Overall Experience: People are pretty nice and school spirit is great. It can be lonely at such a large school if you don't get out there and interact. Once you do, it is pretty fun. The teachers have been good for the most part. There are lots of resources to utilize.

Campus Food: It would be cool if breakfast were a little longer for those who wake up later.

Academics: The academics at State are excellent. The professors show not only an interest in the subject but also and interest in the students. They are usually very approachable and willing to give help on a project or listen to your dispute for a grade. The curriculum is challenging allowing students to get as much out of their education as possible. The library is the most popular and best study area.The registration process can be a bit of a hassle though with all the meetings that must take place between advisors and students, but other than that I'd say the academics at State are awesome!

Athletics: The facilities are really wonderful! School spirit is a big part of campus life! Being on campus, you immediately get this since of pride in your school. I really love the atmosphere that the athletics set up.

Campus Housing: I think living on campus is the best option for new students. It's a great way to meet people and make friends, and in general, just be involved in a relaxed social atmosphere. Another one of the conveniences of living on campus is the proximity to class and the eating places on Hillsborough St. I've actually heard from multiple sources that living off-campus is not as much as a hassle as people believe it to be and that it is actually cheaper than on-campus housing. Best option would be a single room or even suite style dorm, the worst option would be one of the dorms that is located on the side of campus where most classes are not located. The housing process is very easy, actually. For next semester I wanted to be in a suite with a couple of my friends and signing up for this option was not difficult at all.

Diversity: Diversity on campus is actually pretty great! There are many clubs and organizations that promote and educate about diversity. And I personally haven't faced or witnessed any discrimination.

Diversity: I came from a very small rural town and in my opinion the RTP area is the most diverse in the state. There are plenty of opportunities to meet new people and explore other cultures.

Campus Food: About as good as could be expected in the dining halls but the campus also has things like Taco Bell. There are also many restaurants close to campus that cater to students.

Campus Quality: There are plenty of clubs as well as activities on campus for on and off campus students. I have felt just as involved living off campus as I was when I lived on 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.
