They are only strict with things they have to be strict about, like underage drinking, etc.

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!

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.

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.

Slow Process – The process takes forever, but they will try to extend your time, but it takes forever just to get your information back from the office.

Hillsborough Heavan – If you go onto Hillsborough Street you will be find so much food.

Where's Waldo: Drinking – Do you remember picking up a Where's Waldo book growing up and sometimes you'd find him but most of the time you really had to put forth a lot of effort to do so? Well this is the same with the drinking scene on NC State's campus. You don't really see it unless you are trying to find it.

I See Greek – There are students involved in the Greek life in abundance on NC State's campus. They are friendly and regular students just like those who choose not to participate in the Greek life. If you make a friend who is actively involved in Greek life, it is a great college experience for you as well.

Beautiful Campus – I love NCSU's campus, it is absolutely beautiful. It's a perfect combination of transitional building and style and modern accommodation. The red bricks give the campus an old feel yet the facilities are super modern. The library is one of the biggest in the nation, providing students with an unimaginable amount of resources 24 hours a day. there are many organization to join and there are always activities that keep students entertained and having a good time.

Health & Safety:
Safe Enough – I have always felt safe at State and i am never worried about walking alone around campus at night. The classes are safe as well as the dorms. there are crimes every once in a while but they are never in the center of the campus, they usually occur farther away from the classes and library.
College Junior 2012-07-29T05:49:08Z
Health & Safety:
Pretty Good – We get emails for every crime alert. I always feel safe on campus. I see police patrolling nearby fairly often. There are callboxes everywhere in case of emergency.

Drunken Madness – My only experience with Greek Life on campus was a dazed drunken girl repeatedly falling on the sidewalk. A friend and I walked her home when it become clear she couldn't stand on her own. She lived in a sorority house, and when we were in her area dropping her off, we got jeered at.

The dining halls do a great job at serving a variety of meals each day, but still have you basics in case you just don't like what they are serving. NCSU offers other meal options besides dinning halls such as coffee shops and food court time places in case you want a litter option or more on the go.

Most off-campus housing have buses or shuttles to main campus that is included in your rent. All housing varies but pricing can be steep at times.
College Senior 2012-07-20T15:50:57Z
The wolfline at NCSU is a great help. They are free and not only run around our large campus but they have convenient routes near by but off campus. NCSU buses stop at all the local off-campus apartments if you want to visit a friend, or go to the grocery store. The buses will take you to and from our basketball and football complex on game day but will be a little slower in trying to accommodate tens of thousands of students at the same time.

Academic Probation and Warning – If you GPA drops below a 2.0 you have to meet with you advisor frequently which can be time consuming and you are often disqualified to live in the nicer dorms or residence apartments on campus. Not to mention you will not be eligible for internships or student research witch are crucial in acceptance into grad. school or other programs. The motto " C's get degrees" is not the best thing to live by.

Drinking Some Smoking – The only drinking i have seen is at houses off campus and some in dorm rooms. A cop saw a empty liquor bottle in friends room through window and searched his place...he was kicked off campus. For the most part people are responsible and the enforcement is strict.

My Dog Eats Better Than Me – They have three dining halls on NC State campus and one of these is an athletes dining hall. The regular dining halls are not satisfying at all and are extremely repetitive. Usually i end up eating salad whenever i go because there is nothing else appetizing. I have eaten once at the athletes dining hall and i was surprised on how great there food was, none of the other dining halls were even close, it was shocking. they have a taco bell and chickfila but they get old real fast.

There are few houses in walking distance from the college and almost every house or apartment is extremely expensive. The most sensible thing to do is get a house in the Neighboring city, Carrie.

Good School. Not MIT but definitively a great engineering uni.

Parking is okay, could be better but it is Raleigh so it is understandable

We Went to Sweet16 in Basketball and Went to a Bowl in Football – I love NC State sports, we might not be like Ohio State or Florida in football and basketball, but we are up there! Great rivalry with UNC

Computer Engineering – I love computers, so computer engineering was an easy fit for me. The program here is rigorous but it has exposed me to new things and has helped me do better in my core classes too.
College Senior 2012-07-10T12:47:46Z
I would prefer off campus housing due to the amenities offered in relatively the same price range as on campus housing.
College Senior 2012-07-10T12:45:49Z
There are several modes of transportation available, however most places are in walking distance except for the Ag Campus, fairgrounds and RBC center.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
