Health & Safety:
There appears to be a large amount of criminal activity but students are warned of this. The police are very effective and I feel they do a great job. The campus seems to be very safe in my opinion.

I really hate every thing Greek Life stands for. That being said NCSU isn't the worst of them all. They are mostly respectable.
College Freshman 2012-12-04T03:04:51Z
Not really that prevalent in my friend group. Some of them do drugs but after I say I don't want any they never offer again. Very respectful and no peer pressure.
College Freshman 2012-12-04T02:57:24Z
Pretty easy. Just make an appointment with someone in charge and they will tell you what you need to do.

I'm very happy with my microbiology program here at state. I plan to go into research and development when I graduate. Or maybe get a graduate degree.
College Freshman 2012-12-04T02:52:32Z
I'm at NCSU and I love the microbiology program here. The directors are very friendly and helpful and are really willing to help you where ever you need it.

Health & Safety:
There have been many wolf alert recently due to robberies and crimes however the school sends out timely notices.
College Sophomore 2012-12-04T02:37:39Z
Always something to do downtown.
Not all college students due to the many young professionals that work in Raleigh.

Finding a parking spot can be like looking for a needle in a haystack at some points, especially on weekends when anyone can park anywhere, but there are those moments where there are tons of open spots to park in. Because there are buses running all through campus, and off campus at night, there isn't a big need for a car on campus.
College Junior 2012-12-03T19:35:28Z
There are plenty of off-campus dining options on both Western and Hillsborough Street, on both sides of campus. Almost every place delivers late, for those nights you are up studying late and get a craving for something. Prices are all reasonable for the amount of food you get and there are some student discounts.
College Junior 2012-12-03T19:29:37Z
The best places to eat would be Talley or the Attrium because the dining halls don't have the most appealing food choices and their options become repetitive. Dining dollars are great because they help when your meal goes over the equivalence amount.

Wolfline buses are free, safe and convenient. There are plenty of routes, and they run very regularly, just not on the weekends during the day, which can be slightly inconvenient. City buses, for which students can order a free pass, also come on campus, but I do not have personal experience with those.
College Sophomore 2012-11-29T16:23:30Z
Raleigh is known for its mild weather. We do not have the snows that the mountains have, so classes are rarely cancelled. If the weather is rainy or really cold, we can always take the university buses to classes and the city buses elsewhere. Even if I decide to walk to class in the snow, it is not difficult because the campus grounds are so flat.

I am in the engineering program at NC State. I am fortunate that this program offers tutors through the engineering department which makes it easy to get that extra help. The school is continuously updating facilities like the current space age renovations to the student center. Also, I am from a small hometown with limited opportunities, so being in the capital city of North Carolina is amazing! There is always something cultural or fun to do here! My parents did not allow me to bring my car to school for my freshman year, but, not to worry, schools buses take me all over campus and city buses are available for anywhere else.

The computers labs, although nice at NC State University, are extremely crowded, particularly around midterm and finals. All of the computers have wireless access. The only downfall is you have to pay to print.

The local atmosphere is my much better than at where my alma mater for undergrad was. There are several nearby colleges and universities in the Triangle area. In addition, there are so many options as far as shopping and events are concerned.

Health & Safety:
The Office of Public Safety does an excellent job of keeping the campus secure and notifying students when malicious activities occur. Most schools keep such activities under wraps without alerting students.
Recent Alumnus 2012-11-28T15:06:22Z
Off-campus dining options are amazing near my school. There are so many options no matter what type of food you are in the mood for. There is a Zaxby's, Chipotle, Pita Pit (very healthy), Chile Bomba, Planet Smoothie (great smoothies and they offer daily NCSU discounts), FreshBerry Frozen Yogurt Cafe, etc.
College Junior 2012-11-27T21:30:24Z
we have groups of every kind. A Ton of Indian, and asian groups, gay/bisexual clubs, religious clubs, pretty much anything your into there is a group that meets and discusses it.
College Junior 2012-11-27T21:27:01Z
The best advice i can give you is to stay on central campus your first year, its best for freshmen, you will be a round a ton of other freshmen all wanting to do the same thing...Meet people. If you choose to stay on campus any years after that I would suggest a dorm like North, Wood, or Avent Ferry, which are on the outskirts of the campus and are much more private with bigger rooms also.
College Junior 2012-11-27T21:22:25Z
The campus is great, a lot of brick though. Dont plan on driving thru campus to see what its like because most of the halls where classes are held are easier seen by walking around campus and through our brick yard.
College Junior 2012-11-26T22:30:19Z
Night life is good. You have the frat parties for the young and the bars for the old.
College Junior 2012-11-26T22:28:48Z
Professors are very easy to contact and are quick with emails
College Junior 2012-11-26T22:27:21Z
Academics at NC State are on the rise. The new dean in town is cleaning things up and making this school harder every year. No longer is NCSU the easy to pass farm school, but has now become a progressive engineering, business, textile, and design school.
College Sophomore 2012-11-26T19:54:01Z
There are a variety of restaurants, shops, malls, places to hang out, movies. There is never a halt in the activities you can participate in.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
