"From the beginning the NCSU was a welcoming institution. The professors are always quick on responding and able to help you with course work as well as any scheduling needs. The program I was in was very well organized allowing the students to fully commit to their studies and not be worried about other administrative concerns."

"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 has a great, welcoming atmosphere. There are many opportunities in a variety of fields. When I first started attending NC state I had no idea the types of majors that were possible at this university. But if there is something you want to do, they have it for you here. Anyone who is thinking about applying to a four-year university should consider NC State."

"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."

"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."

"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
"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)."

"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."

"Overall, North Carolina State University is a good school to attend. There are pros and cons to every University, and NC State is no exception. The engineering program is rigorous and demanding, often taking 30-40 hours per week to complete the required assignments. From my experience, 90 percent of the professors are well organized, prepared, on time, and ready to engage in the curriculum. They are knowledgeable on the subject matter, and for the most part, presented the information very well for the students to learn. Falling behind in most engineering classes could hurt the student, and it is up to them to make up the work. As with most universities and professors, the student has to be proactive, and ask for help/tutoring. NC State is a great university, and I enjoyed my time studying there."
