Alcohol is pretty prominent on the weekends. The drug scene isn't all that big. I know my guy friend's roommate got removed from the dorm because they found weed in his room but aside from that it isn't very big. I haven't encountered any peer pressure. The strictness also depends on your RA. If you give them a reason, they are obligated to check out the room (loud music, smell, etc). Otherwise they are pretty relaxed.
I am in the Poole College of Management. Once accepted into NC State, if you had written your major as business, accounting, or finance, you will most likely be automatically placed into PCOM. There is no additional application. HOWEVER, if you choose a different major, I have heard from friends that it is very annoying to switch majors. If you choose to be in First Year College, the process of moving in PCOM isn't that hard. If you are thinking about business I would just highly recommend putting that on your application from the start.
I am in the Poole College of Management which is for Business, Accounting, and Economics majors. I absolutely love it. I'm an economics major and I plan on going to law school upon graduation. I know if I was choosing to go into the job market upon graduation that I would be able to find one with the help of a program called epack and also the staff. The faculty and the older students are really helpful. If you are applying to State, I recommend choosing what field you want to go into instead of going into First Year College. FYC is a good program but if you want to go into business, FYC makes you take classes you don't need. If you get into PCOM, you will receive a peer leader who works like an adviser. If you have any questions go to them first before you see an adviser because they are there to help you. Your freshman classes will seem easy because they are mostly gen eds; however the pace will pick up sophomore year so be prepared to work and study hard. I would highly recommend PCOM for incoming freshmen.
I'm in the Poole College of Management and it is an amazing program. PCOM is where you will be placed if you major in Business, Accounting, or Economics.There is something called epack which gives you plenty of jobs and internships and their details. I have yet to apply for any but I have looked and there is a lot to offer. If you're a freshman and you want a job this isn't the best place to look but there are many other places on campus that love to hire students (the gym, Port City Java, etc). As for the college of management, the faculty makes it clear that they will find you an internship and a job by the time you graduate.
