Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

"NC State, is one of the most innovative institutions in the world. I believe it offers the best preparation for its students in order to be prepared for the next step in life.

Alejandra Martnez - 3/6/2017
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016
"After doing my undergrad career in Environmental Design at NC States College of Design I have been able to experience the positive academic atmosphere, the interaction with other students from the design community, the challenges, the inspiration and motivation that the environment creates everyday coming from my fellow classmates in order to become better in what we do. It gave me the very interesting and enriching opportunity of studying abroad to enrich my global awareness by studying at the Prague Institute in Czech Republic, the courses that Ive been taking, my mentors and professors have contributed to my way of thinking and have helped me in defining who I want to be as a designer and what I want to do with my knowledge so I decided to keep moving forward towards becoming a licensed architect; the foundation of many other dreams. Im convinced that this program is one of the bests in the country and the rigorous admission process guarantees the quality of the college and its students."

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2015
"Although NC State has a large student body, the department of Food, Bio-processing, and Nutrition Science was relatively small. The small faculty to student ratio allowed FBNS students to develop close relationships with professors. For me, those relationships opened up an opportunity to become a teaching assistant and as I advanced through the program, I was easily able to ask for strong letters of recommendation for graduate school applications. I received exposure to professionals in the field, job and internship postings, and community service opportunities through the clubs supported by FBNS. After graduating, I maintained a relationship with my research supervisor, who was able to refer me to a position and provide a letter of recommendation to the manager. This was a huge advantage because the nutrition field is closely networked. Other opportunities that I had access to through this program were practicing community nutrition education & research, working with a successful restaurant chain to conduct public health nutrition research, making connections within NC State Dining/ Campus Enterprises, finding two jobs (two part-time jobs as a student and one full-time job after graduating). In addition to all of this, I was a transfer student and my advisor made it easy for me to graduate on time (4 years)."

Jon-Robert Williams - 3/6/2017
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2005
"NC State University is your basic State University, however it will always hold a place in my heart. It helped me get acquainted with the world of math and engineering and with myself. The latter of the three allowed me to understand that engineering wasn't for me, but that being a teacher was. The faculty helped with the difficulties of switching majors with my dismal attempts at engineering and it is for thus that I would recommend it to anyone who isn't sure of their path, but know that college is part of that path."

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015
"If you are looking for the big school intangible perks with a small school feel, NCSU is for you! The faculty and staff truly want you to succeed! The campus has a lot to offer in terms of clubs, sports, and nearby social activities. There is a second brand new library with a lot of study space!"
