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.
We have a campus bus system which is very convenient. This bus system has bus stops off campus as well including bus stops at some of the local grocery stores, shopping areas, and apartment complexes.
There are a lot of attractions, activities, events etc. on campus and in the Raleigh area in general. There is always something to do on campus(we have many events, concerts, campus theater, music center, etc.) NC State is also close to malls, shopping areas, museums, etc.
It takes a long time to get a campus escort. You cannot get a campus escort until 10 o'clock but it get's dark way before 10 o'clock. We get notified via text when there are crimes on campus but it is usually a while after the crime has been reported.
There are missing bricks all over the campus which can be dangerous when there is bad weather(rain, snow, ice, etc.). There are also certain parts of the campus that flood often when it rains.
NC State boasts very good academic programs, and although it's not as good as Chapel Hill overall, it's still a very great school that anyone should be proud to go to.
