North Carolina is a fantastic school for STEM majors. There are tons of opportunities for students to join clubs and partake in activities. Classes are generally good - it really depends on your professor - but so far I've had good experiences with all of my professors. Plus there's a lot to do in the Raleigh area. I would give the school a solid 8.5/10.
I absolutely love it here. Not everything is perfect, obviously. However, I am glad that I made the decision to come to NCSU. There are improvements we could make surrounding inclusivity for people of color, but I believe we can achieve this goal with the student population that we have now.
I was a student last semester and overall it was fine. Didn’t love it nor hate it, until I transferred out. I transferred to UNCC and am loving it here a lot more than I liked it there. I have never in my life had so much trouble out of a process than I have had out of NC States transfer process. I had to email about 5 different people just for someone to tell me how to go about the process of my transfer. My advisor was no help at all and most of the people I talked to were too. I ended up doing a withdrawal and thought I had everything sorted out finally… WRONG! I have charges to my student account even now that aren’t supposed to be there for a term I’m not even attending even when it says my withdrawal was completed and approved. I am disgusted at how this process has went and will forever hold a grudge against NC State with how much they have put me through and how much of a nightmare it is to transfer form that place. The only reason this school is getting a 2 stars from me is because of the other students I met there. I understand that the intent is not to transfer when you go to college but the process should be clear on how to do it for people who want to. I even had to put visitor on this survey because they did not even have an option for transfer student.
After finishing my freshman year at NC State, I'm so glad I chose to go there. Everyone there is so welcoming and even after only the first week there I truly felt like I was a member of the Wolfpack. Even though NC State isn't known for sports everyone still gets really excited on game day and we have a great student section. The campus itself is beautiful and academics are also great there. There's some really interesting classes and so many different majors. All of the professors I've had so far have been genuinely interested in what they're teaching and really helpful. There really is something for everyone there.
Although everyone was sent home due to COVID-19, we were emailed with updates from administration almost daily and all of my teachers did their best to keep my classes on track and in communication.
I'm excited to go back in the fall and I can't wait for the next three years!
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for North Carolina State University at Raleigh is 47%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell my high school self the following statements about his upcoming revelation:
Go for it. Don't hold back. College is the time where the greatest of changes happen. These changes will be the best things to ever happen to you. You had your fun in high school, but starting a brand new slate? -- it is priceless. However, there is one thing that you have to remember: work hard. The rewards don't come free, but working hard isn't all that...hard. I mean you've made pretty good grades up to now, so just keep doing what you do! But hey, there's that one habit that you REALLY need to stop doing: procrastinating! In college, assignments have due dates that cannot be changed no matter what, and these assignments aren't always the easiest. So get used to putting pencil to paper instead of finger to video game controller!! I know you; it's like we're practically twins, you and I. Listen to these words of encouragement, and you'll shine the brightest. Remember: don't hold back. The future is yours to grab... will you take it?
The classmates here are friendly, share the same interests as you and geniunaly want to learn.
The best thing about NCSU is that it is a place you can feel welcome. I visited many other campuses before NCSU, and the big difference between NCSU and the other colleges was that I felt I could truly find my place at NC State. The environment is welcoming, the student body is diverse enough to fit any lifestyle, and the opportunities are huge. However, NCSU may not be for those who do not like big schools. NCSU has an enormous population, which is a positive for me. However, it may not be for others seeking smaller schools. I spend most of my time on campus in the library. My major is one which requires constant studying, and most of my free time is spent in the library doing such. Another great thing about NCSU is its intense school pride. While there are many students who choose not to participate in school spirit, the majority of the population constantly shows a school spirit that cannot be matched. Having a student body that is so invested in their school makes the atmosphere much more enjoyable for those who love having school pride.
Academics at NCSU vary for every major. Some majors are easier than others, while some majors seem impossible to complete. During my freshman year, I had a mixture of terrible professors who I could not learn from and teachers I wish I could learn from the rest of my life. Every class may have a good professor or bad professor. I am a pre-med zoology major, which is in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. In my opinion it is a challenging major, because the competition to get into medical school is fierce. I spend most of my time studying or going to class. I enjoy the challenge though, and the classes I have taken thus far for my major have been tough but worth taking.
I'm in the NCSU marching band as well as pep band. Although it's a time consuming activity and it is, at times, physically exhausting, being in the band has been my best college experience so far. The friends I made in band are now what I consider my family. I met well over 100 people simply through band, which really helped me as a freshman to feel welcome in college. Athletic events are really popular at NC State, because there are so many people with many different athletic interests, so there are always crowds at every event. The best campus traditions are the Krispy Kreme Challenge, where you run 4 miles and eat 10 donuts for charity, the Ram Roast, a "tribute" to our hated Tarheel neighbors, and the Big Event, where the school rallies in support of our men's basketball team as they play Duke away from home. Partying at NCSU is also very big. The party scene is massive, with parties taking place on weekends almost everywhere imaginable. Almost everyone I know attends parties every weekend. Although the party scene is big, drinking is not mandatory. I do not drink and yet I still attend parties with my close friends, because they respect my moral decisions and do not pressure me.
I'm in engineering and the school has just compeleted a whole new science campus that is integrated with real businesses and incredible opportunities for research and internships.
The pride that is held with each NC State student follows you for a lifetime. Once a wolfpack, always a wolfpack is completely true. There is a camaraderie between NC State graduates that is unparalleled. NC State is located in an area that is conducive to new graduates. There are jobs to be found within the Triangle that is greatly beneficial for new graduates.
the dining halls... the food is ok, but nothing special
NCSU is an amazing place to learn, network, research, and have fun! The professors are helpful and friendly. The financial aid office is willing to help you find the funds you need. The housing staff are very sweet, helpful, and enjoy talking to the students. NC State manages to make a large school feel like a small community.
That if you can't get into UNC or Duke you go to NCSU, therefore were not as "smart" as the rest of them.
No. While the school was founded on princples of agriculture, the college of agriculture and life sciences is only one of the many colleges present on our campus. Even within the CALS program(college of ag. and life sciences), many students do not participate in any agriculture-related studies, as the college includes majors in biology, zoology, and others. The students involved in agriculture are not all stereotypical hicks either, they just happen to have a passion for agriculture studies.
Anyone can attend NC State, there are multiple diverse opportunites at the University. The people here are really down to earth, and on a whole very friendly. There is a large agricultural based program here at State, but there are also many design students and engineering students. NC State is what the individual makes of their experience, but on a whole professors, faculty and fellow students are very willing to help new and fellow students along the way. The counseling service and career services I have received personally have been exemplary, and have helped me become a successful individual.
The diversity and atmosphere are the most fantastic aspects of NC State! When you walk around the campus, you are bound to meet people from all over the county, state, country, and even other countries! This diversity creates a warm and friendly atmosphere that cannot be surpassed by any other university. THIS, is what makes NC State the perfect place to be!
What I wish I had known before I came to this school is how to manage my time and the best ways to prepare for exams.
NC State University is best known for their engineering and textiles program.
At my school we have all of the stereotypes. You can find your niche at NCSU and thats what makes this place so great. We have the Geek, the Stoner, the Jock, the Frat daddies all of that.
The Chemistry classes are the most frustrating thing for me. They make them almost impossible to pass. I took AP Chemistry in high school and I had a UNC Chemistry major graduate as my teacher. I still struggled so much in Chemistry at State. They say that it is a weed out class so that they can get rid of the students who are not serious but, I do not think that this is ethically right.
There is really something for everybody here. North Carolina State has a great design school, a great education school, and many science and agricultural degrees. I cannot think of a school at NC State that isn't well known and that doesn't have a good reputation. Raleigh, being the state capital, has something for everyone as well.
I decided to go to NCSU, because it was in-state so the tuition was cheaper but I also decided to go to this university because it had a Zoology degree program. I also chose this school because it is already connected to a vet school and is known nationally for it. Finally I chose this school because of it's VetPAC program that is unique to it, no other school has a program like this that helps you to apply to vet school.
Depends on which dorms you are talking about. The apartments on campus like Wolf Village are pretty nice but will cost you a little more, but it is worth it because it really includes laundry and cable. You live with three other people and everyone has their own room and 2 people to each bathroom (2 bathrooms in all) THe Nicest dorms are in the Honors Village. They are not the biggest rooms but are nice. You don't have to be a honors students to live in the Honors Village. The biggest rooms are in Syme Hall.
