Need More Class Sections – In general the buildings and animal educational units could use some help and improvement. There is little budgeting for Animal Science, it all goes to engineering. Classes are being cut or have fewer sections even though it's one of the most popular majors. It's a lot harder than it sounds, you have to take more chemistry classes than a chem major and the general ed class options are horrible.

Buses need more effective routes and better times. Parking is horrible! The decks can be ok, but the lots have spaces that are entirely too small and terrible parkers (taking up several spots, etc.) are often not ticketed. Parking is out on the edges, no where near where you need to go. It usually takes 10-15 min to walk from your car to where you need to go.

Learn to Walk a Lot – A lot of places will offer coupons at the beginning of the school year. Students make up a lot of their business around here. Most places are either a long walk to get to or require a car/ bus.

Need a Car – There are only a few places to go that are close enough to walk to. Everything else is a 10-15 min drive to downtown or to any shopping center.

Health & Safety:
Could Do Better – A lot of buildings on campus are old and falling apart, but of course they don't renovate those. Several buildings/ dorms should have been torn down years ago. There is smoking absolutely everywhere, getting stuck behind one in the tunnels can be torturous. There are rules requiring smokers to be 25 ft away from the build, but no one follows this or enforces it. Campus dining probably causes a lot of stomach issues. There are several bad neighborhoods nearby so crime can be a problem, especially if the homeless wander on campus. Bikes are only safe if you have a u-bolt lock. Cars should always be locked. It's also not hard at all to get into a dorm without a key.

Most apartment complexes are old and kinda dumpy. College affiliated complexes are way too expensive and there are parties all the time. Most complexes are not within walking distance, and quite a few don't have a good bus system.

Attempting to Graduate on Time With a Decent Gpa – Many classes required for graduation for several majors have only one teacher or very few sections so you have to use seniority to get in, even though it's a low level class. Some classes only a have one good teacher, if you don't get that teacher your gpa is screwed. All the good teachers are leaving, the horrible teachers aren't being fired, and the new teachers have no idea what they're doing. It's very hard to get into classes you need, the system for who gets to register first needs a major overhaul. It needs to be by credits only, not if you're in an honors program or athletics.

Need Work – Dorms are in need of renovation, most are falling apart. There is very little sound proofing between dorm rooms. The elevators rarely work properly. Parking near dorms is horrible as well.

University Towers – I have enjoyed living at UT and plan to stay fro my Soph year. The students and staff have been great. Everything I need.

Mild, sunny, and wearing shorts for three seasons... possibly a hooded sweatshirt in the middle of winter.
College Sophomore 2012-04-10T10:59:57Z
You can walk EVERYWHERE. The weather is nice and all of the dorms are accessible to classes, close to the library and near the food!

Guys & Girls:
People Are Average – There are the run of the mill guys and girls, average, hot, not so hot.

There are tunnels under the train tracks and in one you are allowed to paint and spray paint whatever you want. It is called the freedom expression tunnel. Whenever State plays UNC there is a ram roast and people stay up all night to paint the tunnel red and keep red.

Animal Science – There are alot of programs to do and lots of clubs to be a part of. Work load can be kind of heavy.

Guys & Girls:
Students Dress up Southern Style – Students like to look nice, with a touch of the prep look.

Guys & Girls:
Different Stereotypes – At NC State there are different cliques. It is not a positive nor negative aspect of campus. This school is big on agriculture therefore we have a lot of southern students. NC State is also big in Greek life, so we have alot of sorority girls and fraternity boys.

Printing on Campus Is Difficult – I find it difficult when trying to print on campus. In order to print anything off a printer, say in the library, you have to have money on your ID card called the "print quota". I don't this is useful, because sometimes I find myself in a rush and forgot to print something at home. When I get on campus I find out I can't print off here either because I am not registered for a print quota, which prevents me from printing out what I needed.

Registration is usually never a problem. Workload can definitely be a lot, it is not uncommon for a majority of students to be studying most of the week.
College Senior 2012-03-23T18:04:29Z
dorms are pretty nice. the tri towers are the smalllest and wood hall is the furthest from classes.

Overall, I would choose to go to NCSU again if I had the choice. The social life, sports, and academics are all what I was looking for in a school.

There are many off campus housing options available. Several apartment complexes surround campus and are pretty affordable 4 bedrooms ususally cost around uppers 400s per month

Weather can change 3 times in one day. Otherwise it is typical southern weather. Very windy at times.

Greek life is fairly prevalent. It is not common for everyone to being a frat or sorority, but many people are. Greek circle is scheduled to be made new as well, as the houses are very old.

Most RA's give warnings concerning alcohol and the second offense will result in consequences. A campus referral will result.

Great selection of off campus dining. Large row of fast food places as well as nicer restaurants downtown as well.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
