4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police offer an escort service across campus during certain hours so you don't feel like you have to walk a long distance by yourself if you feel unsafe. There are police/ emergency poles located throughout campus, as well as well lit areas for walking.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in North Carolina varies from day to day, so sometimes you don't know what to expect! Overall it is great intermediate weather- not too hot and not too cold.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: NC State takes lots of measures to make sure its students are safe. I always feel safe and have never had an incident on campus

5 College Junior

Parking: I've visited many other universities in NC and I think State has the best parking options on and off campus. Permits are required for on campus parking but after 5 you can park almost anywhere. There are lots of spot, although they do fill up quickly.

Campus Quality: There are many, many research and internship opportunities. NC State also works with neighboring universities to have programs. I believe our pride is like no other, our football and basket ball games are a sight to see!

College Junior

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus, just personal choice. Although, I have talked to a lot of people and they loving living on campus and many students choose to live on campus through all of their undergrad

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I never had a problem receiving my financial aid.

5 College Junior

Local Area: There is always something to do in Raleigh, NC's capital. At heart, I think it is still an old college town but it has modernized into the big city life. Its a very up beat town and people are generally really nice. There are a lot of cultural attractions and the City of Raleigh always hosts event that are great like festivals.

College Junior

Greek Life: I am not a Greek student but I have been to some events at Greek houses and the housing options are nice. Don't know much about the Greek organizations though.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a TON of dining options off campus. Hillsborough street is always popular. There are lots of dining options in downtown Raleigh and Cary. You can go to NC State all through your undergrad or even graduate years and still have not visited every restaurant there is!

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The campus is beautiful. I love all the brick but there are still lots of trees and places to sit and study in the grass. We have a brand new library and two dining centers. I love the gym; there are three buildings and equipment to play any sport you want. There are plenty of tread mills and weight rooms too. Campus events are always happening and there are lots of traditions to take part in. You will never be bored!

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I've been to many social events and have barely noticed any type of drug scene.

5 College Junior

Majors: My internships have been great and really helpful for the real business world!

5 College Junior

Majors: Love my major and the staff are super helpful, nice, and really care about their students

5 College Junior

Weather: You get to experience all the seasons in NC, does not affect school much.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel right at home :)

4 College Junior

Weather: You will definitely see a variety of weather here in Raleigh, North Carolina but on a good average day you can take a hammock out to the lake and relax.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Mostly the Greek Life is stuck up and preppy, parties alot, and is super preppy and pretentious, which is very similar to our rival school UNC. Those involved with religious organizations on campus tend to be generally very friendly. You can definitely tell a Design/Textiles major apart from an Engineering student here. There is an interesting mix of artsy/fashion students, business professional students, and redneck students here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The overall experience has been enjoyable and there have been lots of fun activities to do on campus practically anytime I wanted to be social. My only regret has been living in University Housing for so long. The rules are not enforced and it is truly unfortunate for those of us who actually follow them. It would be nice if the dorms were renovated.

Campus Quality: Everything is Great! Go Pack!

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I wish I had more knowledge about scholarships throughout the year. I only get them through my specific College here.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: University Dining does a great job spicing things up! With new additions like Talley Student Union Phase I and On The Oval, anyone with or without a meal plan has easy access to delicious & affordable food! These places include unique and original to NC State dineries like Tuffy's Diner & Los Lobos, but also include fan-favorites such as Jason's Deli and Chick-fil-a. And University Dining is always working to add more variety such as Phase II and Phase III of Talley which will include Around-the-World cuisine, a sit-down restaurant, and a Starbucks!

Administration: Average Strictness. Sometimes it is very frustrating when policies are not enforced. I have been in several instances here on campus where I did not feel like the policies were being followed and were being bent for certain students. For my personal safety, I wish residence hall policies were more enforced.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Overall the health center and the police force get the job done. I do wish the security rides home would come faster though.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Raleigh is the best! With events like First Friday, that open up local bars, restaurants, and art galleries the first of every month, it really breeds a community of well-educated and cultured individuals who like to have fun. There is also a good variety of restaurants and shopping to be done in downtown, mid-town, and north Raleigh. Small town living is also not far away. You could take a Sunday afternoon drive through the country in about 30 minutes.

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.
