North Carolina State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (33)
I had a great college experience at North Carolina State University. The school was big, but it still felt small. You get to know a good majority of people in your degree program, but you will not get to know everyone. Some degree programs are closer knit together than others. The friendships that you create will last a lifetime, you will earn a great degree, you will be challenged by the coursework, and manage to have fun. There were plenty of clubs and organizations to participate in and the sporting events were exciting. I really feel as though NC State prepared me for life after college and I feel confident in my degree. I highly recommend NC State. It has many amazing degree programs to chose from and is an all around respected school.
My review is for a degree in Communication specifically. I feel it is not a professional track degree unless you plan on going into speach disorders digital sciences which require higher degree anyway. I am not discounting the college, my choice in discipline was not the best and very unhealthy in regards to having a career.
North Carolina State University is a top-notch school with stellar professors, a vibrant student body, and plenty of opportunities for students. From the moment I stepped on campus, I felt supported and cared for by the school. The professors, mentors and advisors I encountered were extremely helpful in my academic and personal journey. This is certainly not a characteristic that you encounter at other large universities! Whether I needed help after class, or simply wanted to discuss options for my future, my teachers were always available. This meant the world in attending a large university with a student body of over 35,000. My classes in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) were engaging, fun, and even provided opportunities for applied learning in the community. Through my studies in psychology and Spanish, I gained a variety of skills that are highly sought-after by graduate schools and employers. If you are looking for a well-rounded, fun, and enriching educational experience, I cannot recommend NC State University enough. Attending undergrad there truly changed my life, and I cannot imagine attending any other university!
NC State is an amazing school, and I could not imagine myself anywhere else. The professors are all very interested in the students succeeding, and all make themselves available if you need help. The student body is also very supportive and makes the school seem a lot smaller than it is, which is a good thing.
NC State University provided me with a great education that has adequately prepared me to pursue my graduate degree. Studying science can be challenging, but the network of students, professors and TAs willing to help you succeed is amazing. Although the biology program is rigorous, it taught me how to study and manage my time. I am proud to say that I completed my degree Magna Cum Laude and I am pursuing my Master's degree in Physician Assistant Studies. NC State helped shape me into an intelligent member of society and a competitive applicant for programs.
I think this is a program that needs revision. While I feel good with the place I am at and have been provided opportunities for internships, I believe that the program needs to work out a few things. I feel as though I would need another year to be fully prepared for a career.
I loved NC State. Social Work is a tiny department in the school, but I feel like I learned a lot from the professors. Considering this is not a liberal arts school, the department is incredible. It has prepared me for graduate school next year for my MSW.
My 4 years at NC State have been wonderful. I feel like I got the preparation that needed for the next chapter of my life. I'm grateful for all the opportunities and memories that this place gave me and I can't thank the professors enough for helping me develop the professional that I am today.
The degree program I chose was interesting and challenging, and the majority of my professors were good. I would have liked more support and advise in the first year when deciding my degree program and also more encouragement to explore different schools if thought and new ideas within my degree program.
The architecture program is especially tough here. It is definitely worth it though. Also, the general NCSU campus is a fun place to get an education. The food on campus is pretty good, and there are always student and university run events going on.
