4 College Sophomore

Administration: Honestly, they aren't really strict about anything unless you are causing a scene.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls here are like any other place. They are normal.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life students definitely stick together and don't really venture out from their group. Non-Greek life students think they are stuck up and many times only attend the parties. Greek housing seems okay, I haven't really been in them much, but they are usually trashed after parties.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received some scholarships, of course more never hurt.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather here is excellent. Every now and then it is miserable in the rain, but it really doesn't rain all that often. The winters are very mild which makes it awesome.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: Because of our great Agriculture and Nutrition departments, we have a TON of information on the nutritional quality of the food that is served on campus. The dining halls include many options that are locally sourced, and every Wednesday, our campus has a farmer's market in the brickyard where local vendors sell fresh produce and homemade products! In addition, we serve milk produced from our own cows at NC State's vet school! The dining program here has also made great efforts to accomodate people with food allergies and sensitivities by making allergen information more accessible, and by serving allergy-friendly options at the different on-campus dining locations. We even have a blog dedicated to allergy-friendly options on campus! http://www.ncsudining.com/allergy-friendly-at-ncsu-talley-student-union/

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.
