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.

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.

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.

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.

Hillsborough Street – There are quite a few eating establishments which vary in price and quality. Students are sure to find good food at a decent price.

Housing Around Campus – Housing around campus can sometimes be sketchy. You have to really know the area that you're looking at to see if it's in a bad neighborhood. The best place to live as a freshmen coming in is University Towers. It's basically right on campus and you can walk to classes. The only downfall is that it's pretty expensive.

The weather here is perfect! We have warm summers and cool winters. Out of my 4 years of being here I've only missed 3-4 days of classes because of snow. It hardly ever snows and if it does it's only a few inches.

The buildings are pretty old. However, a lot of renovations are currently taking place so they should be a lot nicer soon!

Drinking Is Most Popular – You'll see drunk people walking back through dorms or hear about the party scene if you stay up past midnight. Only one incident with any type of hardcore drug I heard of this past year, I believe either acid or mushrooms. Never ran into any peer pressure.

Health & Safety:
Very Safe Campus – There are emergency poles lit at every corner that have buttons that can be pressed if a crime takes place. There are also security escorts willing to drive you to your destination on campus if you feel unsafe or uncomfortable in your surroundings. Also, the campus police send out crime messages when incidents do occur.
College Senior 2012-06-29T22:50:54Z
Lots to Do – The gym is a great facility! The machines are completely up to date and the hours are awesome. The library is also very good. There are certain parts designated to group study, silent reading, and just hanging out and eating ice cream.

Most Accepting School – NCSU is full of clubs and organizations for the acceptance of diversity. There are many international exchange students, and events that work towards acceptance.
College Senior 2012-06-29T22:41:25Z
Tasty and Clean – The food can be very tasty and seems to be very clean, which is great. However, I have many dietary restrictions (gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free) and it's not easy to find many of these foods.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
