I love my major, I think its interesting and engaging. It is a smaller major in a large college so there isn't much funding in the way of scholarships so there is room for improvement there.

I have an internship at the Museum of Natural Sciences, I heard about it at a career fair at school. It has definitely helped me learn more about Zoology and science education. The only downside is that it's unpaid.

There are always computers available in the library and the network is pretty reliable.

I loved living on campus you are close to everything and it's a great way to meet people. But the food is horrible.

Greek life is not really a big deal, the houses are pretty ugly and you end up paying way more than they are worth.

Alcohol is pretty prominent on the weekends. The drug scene isn't all that big. I know my guy friend's roommate got removed from the dorm because they found weed in his room but aside from that it isn't very big. I haven't encountered any peer pressure. The strictness also depends on your RA. If you give them a reason, they are obligated to check out the room (loud music, smell, etc). Otherwise they are pretty relaxed.

I am in the Poole College of Management. Once accepted into NC State, if you had written your major as business, accounting, or finance, you will most likely be automatically placed into PCOM. There is no additional application. HOWEVER, if you choose a different major, I have heard from friends that it is very annoying to switch majors. If you choose to be in First Year College, the process of moving in PCOM isn't that hard. If you are thinking about business I would just highly recommend putting that on your application from the start.

I am in the Poole College of Management which is for Business, Accounting, and Economics majors. I absolutely love it. I'm an economics major and I plan on going to law school upon graduation. I know if I was choosing to go into the job market upon graduation that I would be able to find one with the help of a program called epack and also the staff. The faculty and the older students are really helpful. If you are applying to State, I recommend choosing what field you want to go into instead of going into First Year College. FYC is a good program but if you want to go into business, FYC makes you take classes you don't need. If you get into PCOM, you will receive a peer leader who works like an adviser. If you have any questions go to them first before you see an adviser because they are there to help you. Your freshman classes will seem easy because they are mostly gen eds; however the pace will pick up sophomore year so be prepared to work and study hard. I would highly recommend PCOM for incoming freshmen.

I'm in the Poole College of Management and it is an amazing program. PCOM is where you will be placed if you major in Business, Accounting, or Economics.There is something called epack which gives you plenty of jobs and internships and their details. I have yet to apply for any but I have looked and there is a lot to offer. If you're a freshman and you want a job this isn't the best place to look but there are many other places on campus that love to hire students (the gym, Port City Java, etc). As for the college of management, the faculty makes it clear that they will find you an internship and a job by the time you graduate.

It is usually humid, even in the winter. It can also get very hot. It is hard to keep your hair the same when you walk outside.

Guys & Girls:
NC State has a lot of attractive people. People from various backgrounds, and a lot of different ethnicities. It would be really hard for you to not make friends. Also a lot of the people are really nice and Southern.

The buses are free. Just get on and go. Since the campus is so big there are mulitple lines going to the different areas. Some even drop you off fairly close to your classes. The CAT bus also stops on campus, so if you want to go to the mall or somthing they will take you pretty close.
College Junior 2013-01-24T03:39:58Z
There are tons of food places on Hillsborough. Most are really delicious some not so much. There is a lot of variety, so you're not stuck eating at the same place all the time.
College Senior 2013-01-22T17:54:42Z
Besides where one can park, there are not many rules that affect me.
College Senior 2013-01-22T17:51:42Z
The library is open 24 hours a day during the week which always allows me access to working computers/printers.

The process of getting into the Engineering College is rather simple. C+ in Eng101, Chemistry 101, Calculus 1+2, E115 (Intro to Computing), and E101 (Intro to the Engineering College). Of course the better you do in those classes really help your chances of getting in.
College Sophomore 2013-01-22T04:33:43Z
I'm extremely happy with North Carolina State University and the organization. They have everything extremely structured and laid out for new students and students looking to matriculate quickly. I hope to get a job with a large tech company and I have little to no concern on the subject. It should be pretty easy with internships, my natural charisma, and my intelligence.
College Sophomore 2013-01-22T04:30:52Z
I plan to have an internship as a Computer Science Major so that I can have valuable on the job experience and to further my chances of getting a good job upon graduation. I don't really feel like I will have too much trouble with finding one seeing as how there are dozens available.

There are so many places to live off-campus. Even if they are not within walking distance, public transportation is so convenient! Price ranges and quality vary. It just depends what you are looking for.
College Sophomore 2013-01-20T19:50:28Z
Parking on campus is expensive, and often times the spots are not that close. I did not have a car freshman year and just waited until I lived off campus. You really do not need a car. Public transportation is great down here!
College Sophomore 2013-01-17T18:54:45Z
I love my dorm and all of the events they plan to help us get to know each other. Almost everything on campus is a ten to fifteen minute walk from my dorm and we have plenty of buses to get to where we're going. The only problem is the train track right behind my dorm. It wakes me up in the middle of the night and interrupts my thoughts in the middle of the day.
College Sophomore 2013-01-17T18:50:55Z
I mostly got grants from NC State but the scholarship office helped me with the paperwork for my outside scholarships. I even had one scholarship donor who forgot to send the money until after the spring semester started and they still allowed me to use the scholarship money from that donor.
College Sophomore 2013-01-17T18:48:24Z
If you really want the education, you won't mind the police being everywhere all of the time. I appreciate their presence because everywhere I look I see a blue light and I see cops quite often so I know I'm safe. I don't think the dorm rules are too hard to follow and most of them have obvious reasons like don't throw footballs in the hallway because you might hit the sprinkler and water would come pouring out. For the most part, the strictness keeps stupid people from doing stupid things and I like that.
College Sophomore 2013-01-17T18:44:38Z
I use the dining hall a lot, specifically Fountain Dining Hall. They always have fresh, well cooked food. I also like that we have Chick-Fil-A and Taco Bell on campus. It keeps you from getting tired of having dining hall food all of the time. They also have a pizza place, a smoothie place, a sub sandwich place, a few ice cream places, and 3-4 places to get coffee. There's plenty to choose from.
College Sophomore 2013-01-17T02:16:39Z
For me at avent ferry, I can park right next to my dorm with ease, for only 200 bucks/year
Sorry, there are no reviews.
