5 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather here is mostly sunny with a few rainy days every now and then. I have loved the fall and watching all the leaves on campus change colors.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation for students is fairly convenient and easy to use. It is available when we need it.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: There are numerous computers available on campus for the use of students. However, the internet is not always reliable.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is fairly easy to acquire if you need it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not personally live on campus, but my friends that do are fairly happy with their accommodations. Living on campus has helped them to connect more and it also provides a great deal of convenience to get to class, the library, etc.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics at NCSU are very good. There are many majors/minors to choose from as well as courses offered. Degree audits are very helpful regarding registration. Workload can be tough but it helps me to learn the material. There are numerous areas to study on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I have not been to any bars or clubs, but from what I've heard, they are pretty nice and not far away.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I have not had much experience regarding campus strictness, but from what I know, the NCSU policies are pretty strictly enforced.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Being so close to downtown Raleigh, there are a number of nice places to eat as well as several fast food options that are convenient and open late.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have had one experience with the health center so far. They were extremely helpful. I do see police cars fairly often. However, I am still not as comfortable walking alone in the dark.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: NCSU's campus is one of the most diverse places I have ever been. I see various nationalities everywhere I go, and work with several students with varying beliefs in my classes.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love going to the sporting events. NCSU students show a great deal of school spirit in going out and supporting the athletes. Intramural sports are also very popular. I played intramural flag football about a month ago and really enjoyed it.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: As the capital of North Carolina, Raleigh is an exciting city to live near, and there is always something going on. There are wonderful restaurants downtown. Sporting events are constantly going on as well.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The only bad thing is that we don't have the full Nutrition program here, so I will have to do more schooling after earning my bachelor's degree. However, what we have is a great program with some of the finest and most recognized professors and advisors in this field. I would choose this again if I were to do it over again. Also, the job outlook is looking good for what I am going for!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: For my specific program, I am a Nutrition Science major in a small department (compared to most of the others in our college). This provides a nice, small school feel where I can really get connected with the other students who have the same major I do, as well as have relationships and direct communication with the faculty and professors. The only downside of my major is that NC State doesn't have the full Nutrition curriculum/ program, which will require me to do another year or so of school after earning by bachelor's degree here.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: NC State definitely has some hard core fans! Including students, locals, and alumni. The teams generally display a good example of unity, and they always have a crowd there watching to support them. Students always get excited and school-spirited for athletic events.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Being in the capital of North Carolina, NC State is right in the middle of a big, busy city. There are many places to shop and visit, as well as many historical places downtown. Also, lots of museums and always big events going on. The PNC arena also hosts the Carolina Hurricanes hockey games as well as NC State's mens basketball. Local parks are always full of families and students, providing a nice atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Upon coming to this school, I have very frequently been encouraged to be accepting of diversity. Overall, the students seem to keep an open mind and aren't very judgmental of people who are different than they are. There are a wide variety of clubs, religious groups, organizations, etc., with something that nearly everyone can fit into.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I personally haven't been pressured to drink really at all since I've been here. I see it very often at athletic events and certain social events, but drugs and alcohol are never directly distributed on campus. I haven't been involved in a situation where I've seen police get involved, so I'm not familiar with the extent of what goes on among students.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Well everyone is obviously different, and our student body is huge. So to rate the whole student body as a whole and describe them as one general characteristic is difficult. However, NC State is very diverse and I'd consider majority of the students to be "normal" and generally pretty casual in dress. There are always social events going on and many many clubs and organizations to get involved with in almost any kind of interest.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: For getting into my program, I was easily able to matriculate into the current department I'm in with the help of my advisors. The application process I feel was straightforward and not too difficult. You can almost always email or meet with leaders of the departments and they will help you with whatever you need.

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

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.
