Overall, the students' experience with NCSU is that it provides them with a rich learning environment. Students learn to balance play and work. Some come to NC State because of family tradition, to get away from the cold, or because of the College of Engineering-but whatever the reason is for the individual, positive feedback always finds its way out. Professors at the University will go above and beyond their call of duty. You make lifelong friends, and you have a huge list of organizations to partake in. Whether you're involved in a college sport, student government, or the Agribusiness Club, you will find your niche here among the thousands of students. Some professors will take you under their wing, and you will learn enormous amounts of information from them. These professors will also become lifelong connections who will probably end up writing letters of recommendation for you when it is time for you to find a job.
NC State wants its students to succeed not only in academics, but in life, too. Here you learn important lifelong skills that are essential to your survival in the real world. Classes can be rigorous and stressful, but students find a way to overcome hardships and get through. Professors will push you to do your best, but at the same time, they understand what it was like to be a student. NC State will help you become an expert in your subject of choice, and with the large number of students, you will come out of college ready to work in some of the most diverse settings.
The campus has 3 dining halls, however one is reserved for athletes during dinner hour. As a freshman they are great places to eat. Our student center is currently being renovated. Currently it holds a sub shop, Taco Bell and a typical burger joint. The atrium is the place most people go in between classes. It has a great selection from pizza to wraps & salads, sushi and Chick-fil-a. I rated it so low due to the cost of everything, food is quite expensive. Luckily campus is in the middle of the city. There are fast food chains and small restaurants surrounding the campus you are not restricted to campus dining.
What they lack in parking, they make up for in Wolfline. The bus comes and goes everywhere and you can always buy parking permits from private businesses across Hillsborough Street.
There are students from all ethnicities and all walks of life at NCSU.
The Wolfline is very convenient to use. However, it sometimes seems that the bus drivers are more concerned with their breaks than actually staying on time.
As only having completed one year at State I don't know what it is like to own a car and live off of campus. As a freshman, you are allowed to have a car on-campus, but most freshman have to keep their cars at least a 10-minute bus ride away. It is easy to get parking permits, though, and they are not super expensive.
