Health & Safety: I feel safe walking alone on campus, but I do use escorts at night to get back home. Most girls would say they're scared to walk alone at night.

Drug Safety: You're going to be able to access some form of drug no matter where you go in life. In the end, you made the choice to seek out the drug and you made the choice to use it.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Great programs that push people into industry.

4 College Senior

Majors: I had a great internship. I learned a lot.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few good places, but they are pricey. I wish there were actually a good mix of fast food and fine dining, so that I could get fast cheap food, but I could go to nice places when I had the time/money.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: They do not inform you of when you are running out of financial aid and let you figure it out on your own. My financial adviser is dumber than a box of rocks and was completely unhelpful. Just know that you only get $31,000 worth of federal loans and after that, you have to get private loans. Not like they ever told me that though!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The option to take the classes online from a very reputable program weighed in favorably in my decision to attend this school.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm an online student. The workload is fair, I believe most graduate engineering classes will require a good amount of effort. I've only taken one class so far and the professor was very knowledgeable.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Wireless access is everywhere on campus. If you are in engineering, you must have your own laptop.

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.
