4 College Sophomore

Transportation: They have a bus system that is very convenient to get around campus and has multiple stops .

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I believe NCSU is actually very diverse both in economic, religious, academic, sexual mix. It seems very accepting of all despite its location in the south.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Lots of team support and opportunities for all to be involved as much or as little as you would like and different sports for each level of abilities.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: It is an easy, but good program. You learn the most about teaching by actually observing and being inside an actual school. The education classes are less helpful.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Buses run all the time, but they can get really crowded. Especially if you have to go to Centennial, where they reduced the number of buses that go there forcing more students on to fewer buses.

4 College Junior

Majors: I'm a nutrition science major and I think the program's great. All of my classes have been fun and it's hard to pick one that I have liked the most. The only change I would make to it would be to add a few more elective choices. I'm not too worried about finding a job. My goal is to go on and become a registered dietitian and possibly work with hospitals or schools and their nutrition programs.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I love all the dining halls here and my only complaints would be how crowded they are and the prices. The food is really good and they have a lot of variety for lunch and dinner. I prefer Fountain, but mostly because it's the closest to where I live.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: I'm not really into parties, bars, clubs, or drinking, but I have been to a few parties. Most of the clubs are 18+ and very strict about who gets in, and if you like grinding on strangers I recommend any of the clubs around. As for transportation, catching a ride with friends is about the only way to get off campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is great and I personally have never felt unsafe. The alert system is a little slow so an email will be sent out about incidents about an hour or two after they happen. Also, the pharmacy in the health center takes a long time to get prescriptions filled, but everything else is great.

2 College Junior

Weather: It is hot and humid here in the summer, you will probably sweat walking to class but so is everyone else. In the winter it gets cold but hardly ever snows.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: 21 and Older – Lots of nightlife for students 21 and older. There are few bars you can get into if you are 18 and older and they usually have a higher cover charge. The new student body president started having buses run from campus to downtown at night so if you wanted to take advantage of that you would not always have to pay for a pricey cab home.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: NCSU has a variety of facilities very close to each other. The walking distance is usually short and there are plenty of dining halls, a library, a gym, and much more which are also close to the dorms. Hillsborough street is also filled with a variety of restaurants and even has its own bowling alley.

4 College Junior

Transportation: There is always a bus in transit, be it the Wolfline in the day, the Wolfprowl at night, or on weekends the Werewolf. They've added even more routes this year too! If you don't want to catch the bus, or one doesn't come by where you're at you can always call the campus police escort service to come pick you and take you back to your dorm.

3 College Junior

Technology: There are several labs across campus that have either Dells, Macs, or a combination depending on your preference for OS. The library is a particularly nice place to go to study using computers, but during exam times people tend to flock to the library.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Much to Do – There are several museums in Raleigh as well as many places to go for night life. The only drawback is that some of the clubs are aimed for the older crowds, but there are still plenty classy venues for college-age adults!

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Somewhat Diverse – There are way more white students than there are of other races, but even within that there is a bit of diversity (interests, activities, etc.). There is a somewhat decent representation of others on campus, but you'll have to look for it/be introduced just to find it.

1 College Freshman

Parking: I Don't Drive – But from other friends' experiences, I can say that parking is pretty poor. Its hard to find parking near your dorm. Whats worse is that even after paying for the right to park on campus, you're still not guaranteed a parking spot.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Depends on Your Interests – There are a lot of guys/girls around campus, it being a rather large campus to begin with. Its just a matter of going out to activities and meeting people.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of Choices – there are plenty of choices from apartments to townhomes, but finding a house is more difficult. the apartments or townhomes to choose from definitely aren't considered top notch, but they are appropriate for college students. if you start looking early enough, it's easy to get a good rate.

3 College Junior

Academics: Biomedical Engineering – A relatively new program at NCSU, BME is becoming more established by the year and features an interesting blend of courses in order to prepare you for industry work. The faculty are generally approachable and well-qualified, and the coursework is well-designed.

Overall Experience: Great School – I love North Carolina State University, I couldn't have asked for a better college experience! I love all the people around all the time, everyone is really nice and always helpful!

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school is pretty well balanced as far as race goes.You will see a lot of white students, but a neighboring college which is less than 10 minutes away is an all black school called Shaw. There is a ton of different races. The school has 36,000 students you are bound to see diversity.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Capital Center ! The school is in the middle of everything. You have food places, malls everywhere, and state is in the middle of two neighboring schools. Meredith which is an all-girl school and Shaw which is an primarily african american school. It is in the capital of North Carolina so there is a lot to do if you look for it.

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.
