Jeffery - 01/30/2021

A beautiful campus and great student life. As a black student going to a school with also many like-minded African-American students is a unique experience. I think that the main issue in my years here has been the Mechanical Engineering department needs improvement on the engagement of their professors. It can often feel like they do not care about the students retaining information and learning as much as they care about the students simply memorizing information and passing their tests. Hopefully, this can be improved in the future so students can be better learners.

Ellis - 10/29/2020

I love it here especially when me and some friends went to the Qdoba resturant on campus the food was delicious and the employees were very nice especially Jamill Taylor she and the others were so nice and helpful and the service was great and me and my friends enjoyed eating their and we will be back there soon. i also love the games that we have at A&T its always fun and there is a lot of involvement from the students parents and aggie fans.

Tonjanae - 09/03/2020

It seems like a great HBCU University

XAVIER - 07/25/2020

I absolutely love my HBCU so much. I definitively couldn't have made a better decision on where to go to school for my undergraduate education. I will forever recommend this school to any upcoming college students, especially ones considering attending an an illustrious university such as this one. AGGIE PRIDE!!

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I advise myself to buckle down and get ready for the real world simply because it came and smacked me in my face. As much as I thought I was I never fully prepared to become an adult. Another thing I would advise myself to do would be to have saved more money to bring with me to school because its difficult living on my own without my family and having to provide for myself with limitied income.

  14. What are the academics like at your school?

    All of my professors know my name. My favorite class is probably Biology just because my instructor made things incredibly easy to understand. My least favorite class is defenitly physics because it takes a ton of work in order to grab the key concepts of the class. Therefore it takes a ton of study time to get better at. Students at my school especially in the engineering department are always studying and having intellectual conversations outside of class and competiting in there school work. I'm an Architectural Engineering major and my department and advisors are very helpful and I spend a lot of time talking with them whenever I need something. I feel that the schools current academic requiremts are a fine standard. Education at North Carolina A&T is geared towards getting a job and making you efficent in the workplace.

  15. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    I love my school because it helps promote acdemic success and it prepares us thoroughly for the working world. It is just the right size not to small or too large. I spend most of my time in the student union eating or meeting with fellow classmates. The schools adminstration could be more effecient by getting us information in a timely manner. Students complain about this and tuition often but despite the complaints all students have tons of AGGIE PRIDE. The atmosphere at the school is unforgettable and something that'll be with me my entire life.
