Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2011

NC State's Elementary Education program is an excellent program that combines the best professors and hands on learning for students. With both quality classes and hands on experience, students are able to enter the classroom ready to take care of their own students with the highest quality of care. NC State provides an interesting assortment of courses that allow its students the ability to be experts in reading and math education, but also areas like the arts and STEAM education as well, making for well-rounded teachers.

Degree: Mathematics Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2011

North Carolina State University is a great institution. There are so many opportunities to get involved with people from all over the world. I was heavily involved in the community at state and it helped prepare me for my career. I received my B.S. in math education where I was trained on how to teach math to high school students. I am currently a math teacher and I love my job. I love working with my students and I know that my education at State gave me the opportunities I needed to do well in my career. NC State is a big campus but it allows you step out of your comfort zone and grow as a student and individual.

Degree: Food Science
Graduation Year: 2010

I really enjoyed NC State as a college. It is large enough for you to get plugged into some great research opportunities, but department can still be small enough for you to know everybody. It's probably best for people with an Engineering or Agricultural interest, but other programs are good as well. Whatever you do, just don't go to UNC.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2007

Good university, but big so a lot of personal attention may not be available. Very good for civil engineering in most ways.

Graduation Year: 2015

This is a great program, but the application is very ambiguous, especially since there are so many different areas that you can go into. Many of the higher paying jobs with an ET degree require further education and a graduate degree. My biggest concern with this program is that you don't start taking classes related to your major until your third or fourth year, only after its too late to change your mind if you decide that the material and it's application is not for you. The majority of the classes I took that were related to my major were all very interconnected but they all did not work together to fully prepare me for any one particular job, it was a lot of introductory classes giving a general overview of very important topics but never delving into one particular subject enough to be able pursue that topic right out of college.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

NC State's MSW program is challenging and thought provoking, and will absolutely change your life in numerous ways. You will come out of the graduate program ready for anything the world throws at you. There are times when it feels really difficult but the faculty and staff are supportive and encouraging. They understand that they are pushing their students but they make it clear that those accepted into the program are capable of greatness, so that is what they expect. NC State offers a Generalist degree, and as such it encompasses virtually every career option in the field of Social Work. Graduate will be prepared to enter clinical practice, macro practice, advocacy, research, child welfare, and many more career paths. Additionally, graduates have a network of colleagues available for support throughout the rest of their lives. Truly a wonderful program, I couldn't imagine choosing any other school for an MSW degree!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2010

NC State University had several great students especially depending on your major. The great thing about this school is that they offer so many widely varying disciplines. There was some funny business with their emphasis on diversity yet mandatory segregated courses aimed at helping minority students adjust to a majority white student body. However, their social work program was unforgettable. I was employed professionally while attending the schools. Years later my professor were still committed to helping me find work and succeed. They went above and beyond the call of duty. I loved NC State, especially after I compared it with my graduate experience.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 1982

Tell us about your college experience.

I enjoyed it. It was in my home state and many people of my background attended. I had plenty of friends who provided a support system to me.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes. Psychology is a wonderful field. I enjoyed studying it and for the insights it gives me.

What advice can you offer other students?

Study hard, save your money, think ahead.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2013

Tell us about your college experience.

It was the largest school in North Carolina and the experience was overwhelming. There were so many different opportunities, clubs, and classes and I loved the immense variety.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would switch to a computer science degree. I feel like it may have been a better fit, although I really did enjoy accounting. In retrospect computer science would have been more informative and more helpful.

What advice can you offer other students?

Take careful time in choosing a college and major. By choosing my college I was offered a substantial financial aid package that my school had a program for. Also, I was able to study abroad through my school and if I had went to 90% + other schools I probably would not have the financial opportunities to travel abroad.
