What is your overall opinion of this school?

I currently enjoy being a student of my institution. I view North Carolina Central University, as an institution of substance, power, strength and academics. However, there may be a few issues that can be resolved or further more improved, if students, faculty, and staff would come to a mutual agreement. Overall, I enjoy attending NCCU.

NCCU is a great school to attend to, academically. If you need someone to talk to or need help with some school work, they'll always be there to help. If you fall behind, they have a way of helping you get back on track and succeeding in your lifetime.

I think that North Carolina Central University is diverse when it comes to the different types of programs that are offered during and after school. Central is like a second home to me and I have made lots of new and interesting friends, and would love to continue my college journey with.

It’s a very enthusiastic school. The culture at Central is wonderful. The students are very active and knows how to keep the campus going. Professors are willing to help their students if needed and they are quick to email you back. There’s never a dull moment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When it comes to central it’s really not a bad school. I enjoy being here on campus. They have plenty activities on campus. Different organizations to Join doesn’t matter what you are into that have something for it. The only thing that I don’t like it that we have to race just get housing for the next year.

On March 22, 2019 my AVID 9 class from Lejeune High School visited NCCU. When we arrived we were impressed by what we saw from the outside. We walked into the Dining hall and I appreciated how organized the payment systems were and how the food was set up. There was plenty of seating and it was a sanitary environment for us to eat. Our tour guides were quite enjoyable to listen to and they made sure they left nothing out. They actively involved us throughout the tour and talked about the programs involved in the school. I enjoyed my time at NCCU!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

North Carolina Central University is all about academic success and extracurricular activities. Campus is always busy meaning there is always something going on and we have a lot of fun. The main thing i enjoy about my college is we are always having intellectual conversations wherever you go on campus, students are very involved in politics and the artistic factors of the college. Our professors are amazing, they are always willing to help and have office hours. I enjoy my HBCU and the eagle pride is always shining.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my HBCU! The illustrious North Carolina Central University has been nothing but great to me. There are many things to do both on and off campus. The upperclassmen are very involved with those in lower classes. As far as politics, the Student Activities Board, the Royal Court, along with our own Student Government Association take the time out of their days to make sure every student both on and off campus have either voted, registered to vote, or even taken the steps to help advocate for their community. I truly appreciate my university and the diversity that comes along with it, although it is a historically black college/university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This place has a beautiful campus, and a few passionate students and professors. Everything else, however, is a mess. The party culture overtakes everything else and it’s all that people worry on. The student culture is just obsessed with partying, drugs, drinking, and relationships. This is just like high school all over again, with the same drama and fights. Some students are way behind where they should be by the time they are in college and the professors make classes easy because of that. Food isn’t bad, but some days it’d be best to eat at the on campus restaurants. It feels like we are in the middle of nowhere, and it’s unsafe to go out at night. I feel like going to this school was a mistake and I can’t wait to transfer somewhere better next year. Avoid this school, especially if you’re not from North Carolina/from a city like I am.
