Deja

My school is best known for engineering. There is an awesome engineering program with its own campus, Centennial Campus. I am not an engineer, therefore, I do not possess a lot of knowledge about this academic study but I do know that they are great at what they do.

Alexis

North Carolina State is known worldwide as a top engineering school. A lot of the funding for the school goes to their world-class engineering programs. At the same time though, none of the other programs are lacking. When you tell people that you attend State it means something, it carries a lot of weight in the community.

Paul

Loads of research and the money and connections to make it happen.

Brandon

To me, NCSU is most known for its prestigious engineering graduates it produces, as well as its ground breaking research performed in varied fields of technology and industry.

Jennifer

My school is best known for the hard working students. Anyone looking to hire an NCSU student knows they would be hiring someone with a very strong work ethic and great personable skills. We are also best known for our football tailgates as well!

Jeremy

The NC State Wolfpack may be best know for the fact that it is one of the few college team names that doesn't have a letter S in it. However, what I have quickly learned is the that the Wolfpack is more than just a mascot, it is a philosophy. Once you are a student here you become part of the pack, and the pack is like a great big extend family. Go Pack!

Whitney

My school is best known for it's very good Engineering, Textile, Design, and Veterinary Colleges, as well as sports and Hunt library.

Brianna

Large amounts of school spirit for the school.

Hannah

Agriculture, engineers, athletics

Kathryn

NCSU is a research based university that offers strong engineering, science, and business programs, and is competitive with Duke and UNC, the other top schools in the "Research Triangle". NC State is about fifteen minutes from downtown Raleigh, which is the fastest growing city in the US, but also just as close to a ton of outdoor nature parks and forests.

Haleigh

North Carolina State University is known for its school spirit, efficient research facilities, and incredible professors. They also are known for their impressive College of Engineering and Poole College of Management. Every student feels that he or she is smart and can count on his or her intelligent peers. NCSU also encourages freedom of expression (especially with the Free Expression Tunnel where students are allowed to spray paint what they wish) which separates this university from the rest in North Carolina. NCSU encourages growth of the individual and the university as a whole.

Monica

North Carolina State University is best known for its engineering and veterinary programs. Both of these colleges are in the top few in the country. NCSU was origonally known for the college of agriculture. The life at NC State is a little slower and more relaxed than some. It is known for its "family feel", in which everyone is accepted. When compared to all of the universities in North Carolina, NCSU is probably more on the conservative side.

So

NC State University is best known for their engineering and textiles program.

Sharae

My school is best known for their amazing Engineering and Textiles program. I am actually attending the school under the Textiles program. The major I am pursuing is Fashion and Textile Deisgn:Textile Design. The program is extrememly hard to get into. There are thousands of people that apply and they only choose 32. I was blessed to be one of those 32 people.

The ram roast is one of the best. During football season, students get together, eat free food, and listen to the NC State players and coaches pump up the crowd. It's always a fun night and State always beats UNC the following Saturday. Go Pack!

one of my favorite campus traditions is the campout next to the free expression tunnel days before our basketball match against our rivals: UNC Chapel Hill. it is always exciting and despite the cold very entertaining.

They are always willing to help and give me advice when I am unsure of what to do. There are a wide range of students at NC State, and diversity is appreciated and celebrated. We are also very spirited at sporting events. Go Wolpack!

State has always been a mechanically and agriculturally focused school but that is not to say you cannot get a quality education in the other majors or programs as well.
