I'm an Anthropology major currently and I hate it. It was my second choice when applying anyway. However, it's a State school in the South, so they have majors like Agriculture. They also have a really good business college and Veterinary program.

It is a long way to park your car if you are a freshman on campus. Alot of times you return with your car and there is no transportation to take you back to school. You are on your own to find a ride back. Not safe to walk!!

I always felt safe but it is a large campus with alot of security which I like.

I love my curriculum because I love writing and English. My advisors have been very positive about my ability which has given me more confidence.

Typical North Carolina weather - usually no issue in getting to classes.

Local Attitude Toward Students – Raleigh is a very diverse city with alot of opportunities. It embraces the college students and offers many services to us. There are at least five colleges within the Raleigh city limits. All the college students get along and we visit several places at the same time. Raleigh is a great city to go to college in.

Great options however hardly any are a pleasing distance from campus.

Unless someone is likely to get hurt or a party is out of control, they generally allow you to do whatever. If drugs are noticed they crack down hard though.

Great quality but it closes so early and isn't open on weekends. It's like they're saying, better be safe after 5 P.M and all day saturday and sunday.

Fraternities are rarely checked upon, meaning you may see them at parties

The campus has 3 dining halls, however one is reserved for athletes during dinner hour. As a freshman they are great places to eat. Our student center is currently being renovated. Currently it holds a sub shop, Taco Bell and a typical burger joint. The atrium is the place most people go in between classes. It has a great selection from pizza to wraps & salads, sushi and Chick-fil-a. I rated it so low due to the cost of everything, food is quite expensive. Luckily campus is in the middle of the city. There are fast food chains and small restaurants surrounding the campus you are not restricted to campus dining.

What they lack in parking, they make up for in Wolfline. The bus comes and goes everywhere and you can always buy parking permits from private businesses across Hillsborough Street.

There are students from all ethnicities and all walks of life at NCSU.

The Wolfline is very convenient to use. However, it sometimes seems that the bus drivers are more concerned with their breaks than actually staying on time.

As only having completed one year at State I don't know what it is like to own a car and live off of campus. As a freshman, you are allowed to have a car on-campus, but most freshman have to keep their cars at least a 10-minute bus ride away. It is easy to get parking permits, though, and they are not super expensive.

While there are rules in place to prevent underage drinking and things along those lines, it is not difficult to avoid getting caught. As long as you aren't obnoxious and obvious about your rule-breaking, you will probably be able to get away with it. It also depends on your individual RA and RM's in the dorms that can affect the strictness and overall experience. I haven't personally had any troubles, though.
College Junior 2013-06-02T00:18:12Z
NC State has plenty of computer labs, but they can get fairly busy (especially around exam times). Wifi is available in most areas on campus, with the exception of a few dorms. A personal computer and printer will definitely make things easier, but it's possible to get by using only the school's resources.
College Junior 2013-06-02T00:13:50Z
Dorm rooms are average. Very small and some options are better than others, but for the most part there's not much selection. Only a few offer single rooms. Housing applications are simple enough, but it's difficult to change rooms after move-in, even if you're stuck with a pretty bad roommate situation. Because the campus is so big, it's worth finding out where the majority of your classes will be, then picking your dorm based on location.
College Junior 2013-06-02T00:08:17Z
Plenty of off-campus housing and a wide range of prices. Most options are fairly close to campus, but are not always in the safest areas.
College Junior 2013-06-02T00:05:02Z
RA's are usually pretty lenient and alcohol is allowed in many dorms. Too many warnings and you run the risk of losing your housing. Bad academic standing can cause you to not be able to participate in certain programs on campus. Campus police are reasonably fair, as you're allowed one parking violation before getting a ticket.
College Junior 2013-06-01T15:00:42Z
The cost of permits could be reduced since majority of the parking is pretty far from our classes. The parking enforcement is really strict, a visitor MUSTobtain a parking pass to avoid a fee.
College Junior 2013-06-01T14:57:14Z
Our athletics perform excellent on the court and in the classroom. They have a great balance to ensure to represent NCSU good athletically but as well as academically.
College Junior 2013-06-01T14:55:17Z
Campus police have immediate response to a violation. Its a big campus but the campus police do their work excellently to ensure everyone's safety.
College Junior 2013-06-01T14:52:54Z
I never encountered a scene like this on campus yet or never heard about drug usage yet on campus thru email.

It's beautiful, especially in the summer and spring. The winters definitely get cold though (colder than the Piedmont... this is NOT Charlotte "cold"), so be prepared for that.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
