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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school I feel as though it's a great institution that'll only improve my educational background I've visited the school and felt like I was at home. When it comes to the institutions you want to attend you want to be comfortable and be happy with where you are.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel they could make some improvements on the food choices served in the cafeteria and maybe upgrade some the dormitories on campus. Buildings and faculty need no improvements where I attend classes. Also they should have some more social events for students during the fall like a carnival or a halloween party in the cafeteria or gym.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is some things like dorms need to be updated like the rest of the newer ones. Also, better food can be added to the menu for breakfast time and dinner. Gym needs to open and fix our swimming pool so we can have a swim team. The professors are nice and helpful, the advisers really want to see you succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a challenging school but I think any university can be. It's there to improve and grow in the skills and methods we learned in the past. Though NCCU is changing we still love it because it is helping us to become proper adults and soaring high.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been accepted to North Carolina Central University, University of North Carolina Greensboro, Winston Salem State University, University of North Carolina Charlotte, and North Carolina A&T University. I chose North Carolina Central University due to the environment, it has such a family feel to the campus. everyone there seems like a big family. The amount of financial aid, they were one of the schools that provided me with the most financial aid. The fact that its an HBCU, I always knew I wanted to be at an HBCU and now that it is happening I am so excited.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first toured North Carolina Central University I fell in love with how the campus looked. There was green grass and the sloping hills made the campus look even more beautiful. All of the professors are good and are extremely helpful. The campus is full of love, pride, and culture. I am loving it.
