NC State is a very diverse campus with students coming from all sorts of backgrounds and many of the students are international. There are student organizations for the international students, religious minded students and the LGBTQ community and those who support them. Also NC State holds a diversity week the celebrates just how many different types of students attend.

At the moment the Greek system is in the process of raising money for each house to be renovated so most of the Greek houses are older and the rooms are very tiny in them. Also Greek students, at least in the sororities are only required to live in the Greek houses for one year, their sophomore year of college, so they either move back to campus OR into an apartment/house off campus after living in the Greek house.

There are a variety of transportation options, including simply walking, available to students. The cost of the campus bus system is free for students and the campus bus line travels to many of the places students would need to or want to go to. Also being located in Raleigh provides students with access to bus lines such as CAT and Triangle Transit which helps when students need to travel to places that may not be covered by the campus bus line.

There are a wide variety of off-campus housing available to students. The university even offers apartments that are technically off-campus but the cost of the apartments are paid on the students account along with their tuition and what ever meal plan they may have. This wide variety of housing options is pretty appealing, especially since many students decide to move off campus for their junior and senior years of college.

For the majority of the year the weather has no real effect on campus experience. Rain and colder weather do make walking to class a hassle though, especially with all the bricks becoming slick when it rains. However since the University is in North Carolina snow hasn't been much of a factor, for me, to deal with.

I would definitely recommend bringing your own computer and printer because the ones available for student use can be hard to come by at certain "crunch" times in a semester and the paying to print in the library/labs on campus requires students to have another account, separate from the others already provided by the university, before being able to print. The way I see it we should have a pre-set up account with like a $100 dollar printing capability per school year, if the university is going to require such things(ie: account set up so that we pay to print).

The college that I am in is one among several renowned colleges/programs offered but the university I attend. The specific college that I am has about a 90% job placement for its graduates.

The department is very friendly and keeps students informed about opportunities for internships, scholarships, and options upon graduation, along with opportunities for employment and research while still in college. They also help keep students aware of ways to prepare for work after graduating.

New dining options on both campuses are great, lots of variety and good value. Having a meal plan is great, especially the unlimited plan.

I wish there was more religious backgrounds, but that is an age thing I believe.

There are a few rough classes, but that is the nature of school. Plus, that depends on your major. There are lots of internships and job opportunities if you are willing to look.

Some professors are more difficult than others, but honestly, you will see that pretty much anywhere you go.
