    Great for these types of students

    Prospective accountants, engineers, english majors, agricultural majors, business majors in general (I'm biased, the School of Business and Economics was my home away from home for four years). Athletes who are very focused are also welcome because Aggie Athletics is serious (make sure you are also able to keep up your grades because you will have early morning workouts no matter which sport you choose).

    Tips for prospective students

    Check to see if your department has scholarships. It is very difficult to obtain scholarship money once you have started, so try to get every scholarship possible before classes start. Also, consider work study. It is a great way to earn a little extra money without having to drive to a job every day and will help you get to know your professors. Consider playing an intramural sport - I was on the tennis team so I was unable to play PowderPuff football, and I regret it everyday!

    Bang for the buck

    It is very affordable, especially for in-state students. Keep your grades up so that you will be qualified for the Dowdy scholarships when you enroll (they were created after I enrolled, so I was not eligible). Talk to your chair about creating incentive programs for freshmen (not impossible - Accounting has one).

    Did enjoy being here

    I absolutely love A&T. I grew up around it, and I am so glad that I chose to attend. Now that I graduated, I miss it very much. The years flew by, so make sure to experience all that you can. A&T is more than just the campus, all of Greensboro supports the school. You get student discounts at the Bojangles and Biscuitville down the street, and you are not an Aggie until you go to Cook-Out (for those of you who do not have one).

    Did learn a lot

    I just graduated from A&T in May, and I feel more than ready to begin my Master's of Accounting program at The Ohio State University. Not only am I prepared, but I also managed to get a scholarship for my Master's and for the CPA Exam (which I am already studying for). The classes are challenging, but it is fun to take some of the electives (not all majors have room for electives, so be careful about that).

    This school is great for engineering students and any agricultural major.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for prospective students is to stay on top of your work and keep up with your financial aid. Overall, my ideal tip is to have fun and enjoy the campus atmosphere.

    Bang for the buck

    For the most part I can honestly say that A&T is worth the buck. You'll have so much fun there that you won't even be concerned on how much money your spending for your education.

    Did enjoy being here

    I loved being an Aggie! There were plenty of people that were willing to work with you. The social environment was fantastic and there was so much to do in the city of Greensboro, North Carolina. I also gained a variety of friends that consisted of teachers, students, and co-workers within the department I received work study.

    Did learn a lot

    I learned a lot at North Carolina A&T State University through their universal studies classes that everyone is required to take. I also learned about responsibility and self-disicpline. Most of all I learned that if you don't stay focus despite what school you go to, you will not be able to stay there for long.

    This University can nurture any type of student. It has a wide variety of activities and programs for everyone to take advantage of. The University is very advantagous to students with an interest in Engineering and Science. The College of Engineering at A&T is well known around the nation and has a high retention rate within the College. Engineering students who come to A&T recieve a counselor that makes meetings mandatory so they make sure you stay on the right path. Also, the courses provide hands on learning that gives experience and education in one class. Class sizes are small enough for your Professor to know if you missed a class which helps students stay on top of their work. In all fields of study Professors care about their students and want to see them succeed. So if your a hard working student that wants to better yourself at a University that cares, this school is for you!

    Tips for prospective students

    Any student that is interested in attending North Carolina A&T State University should make sure this is the University for you. Check the Universities website frequently (www.ncat.edu) to find out what is going on around campus and what's new within the University. If you are coming in with a declared major, make sure the University has an accredited program in your field. Find out as much as you can about the campus life and go on a University tour. After all this is done and you have your heart set on being an Aggie (university mascot) then get your paper work done as soon as possible. Do not wait until the last minute to make sure you are registered for classes and your financial aid is approved. Do not procrastinate! There are 10,000 other students at the universty and we all have to go through the same process. If you get things done early that gives you time to search for more scholarships and awards. My best advice is be persistant in making sure your obligations are complete.

    Bang for the buck

    At NC A&T SU tuition is a major topic. I am an out-of-state student so my tuition is much higher than in-state students. It is like this at most Colleges or Universities. Though the jump is significant, the education is worth it. NC A&T SU has been noticed as one of the top 10 schools in the Nation for Engineering. Therefore, and Engineering degree from my University holds weight in the Engineering world which gives you more career opportunities. Going to a post secondary school is all about bettering your chances at a well paying career. A degree from A&T is a big step in the right direction. Plus the University is good about trying to find students scholarships. They has numerous University scholarships and send out emails about other possible scholarships. We have an entire Hall commited to helping students find financial aid assistance and helping students towards a career.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus life is an exciting experience. With all the students and organizations on campus there is never a dull moment. The SGA always has a volunteer activity that needs active students. All the Fraternities and Sororities host events that energize the campus. Don't forget all the sport events that take place! The football stadium is always packed! The basketball gym is never empty, and sports such as baseball, softball and track are well supported. Numerous events like blaster bowls and campus awareness take place in our Student Union to keep students informed. Also, there are inspirational speakers that visit our campus such as Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton and Maya Angelou come to speak to our students. There is always something productive and fun to do on this campus and I love it!

    Am learning a lot

    NC A&T SU is a HBCU that has allowed me to understand more about culture and history. I have learned more about myself as well as my field of study. I am an engineering major here and the curriculum is tough! I have no doubt in my mind that all the hard work is worth it. I am only a Sophmore and have been taking engineering classes since my Freshman year here. NC A&T SU believes in starting you with your core curriculum courses soon. This way you understand what your major is truley about and can adjust if need be. My mind has been opened and enhanced since my enrollment at NC A&T SU.

    Great for these types of students

    This college would be good for students interested in any major but the most prominent and common majors are in the Engineering, Technology, Agricultural and Education Departments.

    Tips for prospective students

    I say to keep up with your studies. Yes, before I got to the school I was told that the school was a party school but honestly that is at any school. The campus has really focused on the students. I say to stay focused on everything that is given to you no matter where you go. You are at school for the education itself and do not let anyone make you think otherwise. College isn't a place to waste either. So at NC A&T we are full of A-G-G-I-E!!!!!!! P-R-I-D-E!!!!!!!! :-)

    Bang for the buck

    We take Pride into our school and why not go to school that has the Greatest Homecoming On Earth! We have the legendary Blue and Gold Marching Machine, the wonderful sounds of the University choir, Jazz band, and the Meac champs cheerleading squad along with the other entertaining sports.

    Am enjoying being here

    The atmosphere at North Carolina A&T is very nice. We have plenty of social places that allows all students to just come and hang out to relax such as the Starbucks and Pizza Hut near the Williams cafeteria or the Memorial Union. We also have lounges in the residential halls as well.

    Am learning a lot

    We get hands on experience with the teachers. The classes are small enough to interact with your peers in a group discussions or class room discourse. There are also computer labs in almost every building and residential hall so that everyone can learn and be able to complete homework.

    A&T is a great school for engineering majors or any related fields as well as Business and Journalism/Mass Communications Majors. It is also a great for Nursing majors and Animal Science.

    Tips for prospective students

    The biggest thing is to make sure you keep up with your work. Don't let the numerous activities or parties get in the way of your schoolwork. Trust me, it will affect your grades unless you keep up with your work.

    Bang for the buck

    NCAT is worth the money. Coming from Virginia, the out of state tuition was cheaper than some VA schools' in state tuition. I fit perfectly here and the education I am receiving already puts a foot in the door for my career. It is well worth the money.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love being an Aggie! I have a lot of Aggie Pride. I am VP of Aggie Livewires, the pep squad, and I support the school no matter how the teams are doing. And there is always something to do on or around the campus.

    Am learning a lot

    I am an engineering major and i am learning a lot here. All of my teachers are willing to work with you and help you to get the best grade in the class. Every teacher that I have come in contact with have been this way. And you learn a lot in each class.

    North Carolina A&T SU is great for students majoring in agriculture and technoloy. Our school has a concrete school of agriculture and technology. I also think A&T is great for out going people. You have to have a personality. We have a GREAT marching machine, so if your interested in the band/dancing/color guard, this is the school for you! If you like to be around alot of people, in a fast moving environment, this is the perfect school for you. Come be a Aggie, We will make your stay a pleasant one.

    Tips for prospective students

    Our campus is lovely. We have shuttle services to take you all over campus to your classes. We also are connected with the HEAT bus. This bus takes you over Greensboro to malls, movies, activities, walmart, etc. We have a chick-fil-a, pizza hut, smoothie shop, Aggie wings, and a Starbucks right on campus! It cant get any better than that. A&T is the school for you. Come be apart of Aggie Land!

    Bang for the buck

    I would say you get your moneys worth. Its pretty reasonable to attend A&T. I fell in love with the FLEX dollars that comes with your meal plan. Considering I dont really eat in the caf, it comes in handy. I would suggest you to get a meal plan with the most flex dollars!

    Am enjoying being here

    I love NC A&T SU! Here at A&T we become a big happy family. Everyone is so helpful and encouraging. I've gotten adjusted very well to my surroundings. I also do work study. I love it! I work in the political science and criminal justice office, mind you my major is criminal justice. Its a perfect fit for me. NC A&T is where you should be! Im sure you will love it. I started off a little home sick but after a couple of weeks, I was as good as gold.

    Am learning a lot

    I am a freshman, just arriving at A&T. I would say im learning everything possibly needed for my freshman year. Im currently enrolled in University courses to prepare me for the difficult courses and enhance my learning skills. Im learning all about the university, its history, and of course the campus. You will be well prepared for your career once you finish at NC A&T SU!

    This school is great for students wanting to go into an engineering field. There are tons of options! Also, the school of agricultural & environmental science have great teachers and programs. If you want to enjoy yourself while attending a school with immense history and great people, A&T is for you!

    Tips for prospective students

    Look for scholarships early, and make sure your GPA is at it's best. There is a better chance to get more money when your grades are top notch. But most importantly, if you come to A&T, enjoy yourself! Yes, stay focused on your studies rather than going out every night, but there are events going on that you can reward yourself for hard work. It's all about balance. The people that don't like A&T never did anything that they loved.

    Bang for the buck

    Being an out of state student does have its woes. Tuition is ridiculous, but I know that's a disadvantage of attending school out of state, and it's worse than other schools so I can't be too picky. It's a bit hard to find scholarships provided by the school for my field, and unfortunately financial aid doesn't cover all of my expenses, but because of my experiences, I couldn't think to go anywhere else. I couldn't picture myself anywhere else, so the financial worries are bearable to some point, just because of my love for my school.

    Am enjoying being here

    My first year at A&T was absolutely amazing. I could not have asked for a better freshman experience. I didn't know anyone coming to the school, and I was extremely out of my comfort zone, but luckily I met some fantastic people who took me under their wings and made me feel comfortable in my own surroundings. Those people are like my family, and made my year so much more enjoyable. I didn't even want the year to end, and I'm so anxious to go back. The atmosphere is so fun and friendly, and people always greet you and try to make you part of the environment no matter what color you are. I absolutely love my school!

    Am learning a lot

    Being a current Laboratory Animal Science major, I have learned an immense amount of new material that is just so fascinating to me in this major. I have always desired to be a Veterinarian, but I didn't have that much experience before I came to A&T. My family was hesitant about a city girl (Las Vegas born & bred) going to the 'country'. But I was provided with hands on experiences with animals in the lab AND at the farm, and I cannot stress how much it has increased my love for this field. The professors are very experienced and are nurturing, and have increased my wanting to try more and learn more. I also learned more about myself. I wasn't raised around many African Americans, or places that were rich in history and culture. But being at A&T has provided me with knowledge about my ancestry, the struggle behind the advantages that black students have today, and have helped me realize how fortunate I am to have an education because of those before me that fought and died for my chance to live freely without oppression. I've learned so much about the history of A&T and my culture, and it's so interesting. I just want to know more and more, and I love that A&T is providing me with such.

    This school is great for those who like to party, want to be an engineer or business major, who is also very studious, and who wants to be in the band.

    Tips for prospective students

    The food in the cafeteria isn't all that great, but eventually you'll grow accustomed to it. The dorms to stay away from are Cooper and Haley, the better ones are Pride, the Suites or the Village. Dowdy Hall (the financial aid office) will be your worse enemy.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition and went towards the remodeling of the cafeteria, and they have a shuttle bus fee that everyone has to pay for in which only few students actually ride it.

    Am enjoying being here

    I like it here, the campus is beautiful, especially in the spring. The cafeteria aka the cafe is nice. Overall the atmosphere of this campus is relaxing during the day and lively at night, which I like a lot. It also reminds me of the suburbs, especially when I walk through the village.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers here are very informative, some of them make sure you understand before they move on to another topic. The Business program here is one of the best just not that known for it.

    For students that probably didnt have the 4.0 gpa in high school. More like a average student type of school. Most of all if you like to have fun an learn at the same time, A&T is the place for you. If you like seeing nice cars on rims and hearing loud music when goin to class A&T is it. I you want to be apart of a institution that mostly everyone takes pride in then thats where you should be.

    Tips for prospective students

    Think positive. Be yourself. make sure you do your best at everything you do as in tests an be prepared for everything that could possibly come your way.

    Bang for the buck

    I don't understand this question but.The cost could be cheaper but its decent for in-state.

    Am enjoying being here

    Theres always something that you can be doing here. There may be sometimes where you can become bored but that probably will be because you haven't really been looking for activities to do. For the fact that majority of the students that are here are trying to make something of themselves allows me to enjoy it here even more.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning a lot here.The professors here are very helpful there are several resources on campus so that you can be successful here. Even when your not n a classroom setting you seem to always be learning something iand that's how this university is set up.

    The teachers here are absolutely terrific. They are very one-on-one and are here to help you. While some college professors see you as just another student, A&T teachers see you as another person with potential and greatness.

    Campus Safety

    Very safe, no problems at all.

    Greek Life

    Many greek life organizations on campus, there is a very strong presence of them, The Divine Nine.

    Clubs and Activities

    Baja, or Formula club is very fun, for those students interested in cars, or racing. You can build your own racing cart from scratch, then actually race it in national competitions.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    People like playing hide and seek sometimes around campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Everyday from 2pm-4pm the union fast food places like Pizza Hut, Chic-fil-a, or blimpies, they all offer 50% off discounts on food!

    What to do for fun

    Very close to other campuses like UNCG, Bennette for example. Can go to the game room in the Union, or if youre a party person, go to one of the many Clubs down town, everything is in walking distance.

    Food and Dining

    Gourmet meals every day for Lunch and Dinner. During breakfast they have great omelettes.

    Dorm Life

    Good, spacious rooms, very comfortable.

    Academic Rigor

    Mechanical Engineering does require a large amount of work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Many things on campus will try to pull you away from your work. Always remember the main reason you are here, make the right friends, and stay out of trouble.

    North Carolina A&T, is a great school, and has outstanding engineering programs. I am a current Mechanical Engineer major, that plans to graduate in 2016, and i have absolutely no complaints at all about the school; the people here are great and welcoming. North Carolina A&T is a great place to pursue your college career, and you will not regret it; theres always something to do.

    I have a love/hate relationship. Paying out of state tuition is not ever the best thing. I feel like since i pay so much i should receive better classes, resources and what not, but I don't so thats why only 2 stars.

    The environment here is different for me but enjoyable. Can be a little much at times though. You have to make the best out of every situation your put in.

    Basically with any school you will attend, you will learn as much as you desire to learn. With my craving for knowledge it has allowed me to learn quite a bit in the time i've spent here i have done things that i have never imagined doing! This is a fantastic university with a wonderful program in engineering. One thing that will live on forever with you in AGGIE PRIDE! AGGIE PRIDE TILL THE DAY I DIE!

    A&T is great for Engineers, journalism, business majors and people majoring under the School of Agriculture.

    Tips for prospective students

    keep your grades up, search for scholarships, and get involved. It's the only way to have fun.... oh ! and balance partying and studying!

    Bang for the buck

    KEEP YOUR GRADES UP! It's one the guarenteed ways to receive better financial assistance from the school. But for the amount that you do pay to attend the school it is most definitely worth it.

    Am enjoying being here

    There are tons of programs to go to on campus and millions of things to do off campus. People say A&T is a party school, but in all honestly, you put in what you get out.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning a lot even though I haven't gottten into my major yet which is Family and Consumer Sciences Ed. I took the required University Studies classes and they helped a lot by preparing each student for the core courses that will kick your butt if you don't find a way to be productive.

    Tips for prospective students

    beware of the transition from high school to college. my freshman year in college reminded me so much of high school that i kept some of my bad high school habits. once i started my sophomore year and started getting into my major courses...i paid the price. so yeah, during your freshman year in college you should start trying to adapt into that college mindset right away.

    Bang for the buck

    it's a bang for your buck only if you take advantage of the opportunities a&t has to offer. listen for what's going on around campus and you'll gain everything you need.

    Am enjoying being here

    Yeah, I like it in North Carolina. Good people down here. I think it might have to do with that whole southern hospitality thing. And just getting to know folks from around the US is always a good learning experience.

    Academic Rigor

    i'm learning a lot simply by being on my own. its one thing to grow up having your parents help make your decisions. but, to be here on my own and to take matters into my own hands is a good feeling. it lets you know things about yourself that you didn't know before. also, one thing they tell us at a&t is that it's not always what you know but who you know that will help you out in the workplace. a&t has a lot of opportunities for you to get to know others from other companies to help you get your feet in the door when aiming to gain work experience.

    A&T is like one big AGGIE family, it's easy for you to find and make great relationships with people from different backgrounds.

    Campus Safety

    Campus Safety is important at A&T. We have our own campus police, emergency push buttons and security guards in all resident halls and builds that hold evening classes.

    Greek Life

    I am not a Greek but they are interesting and always keep campus live.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are LOTS of organizations to be apart of on campus. What I loved most about my freshman year was that as a freshman I was able to be apart of a lot of organizations. It made me feel like I had a say so!

    Great for these types of students

    If you're in to the whole politics thing, A&T has a competitive student government association. They plan excellent programs on campus and the royal court always shows off at the football games!

    Bang for the buck

    I live in New York State and it was actually cheaper for me to go out of state to A&T than stay in state to go to some of the schools at home.

    What to do for fun

    There are parties on and off campus, and events that are hosted for the students by the school which are FUN! I mostly did low key things with my close friends and boyfriend such as go to the movies, or order a pizza and watch a movie and play games. Which is always fun, because you're around people you enjoy.

    Food and Dining

    Coming from New York I didn't care for a lot of the southern food but the dining hall is hit or miss, but some people like it. But we aren't limited to the dining hall we have food in the union to eat and there are food location off campus in walking distance to eat at too.

    Dorm Life

    The traditional styles resident halls aren't horrible but were not my preference. The newer style resident halls are wonderful and everybody tries to get a room in them so it's best to do your housing early. Thankfully freshman can live in any resident hall on campus just as long as they do their housing early.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending upon your major some students would say the classes are hard or not. But no matter what major you are in, there's ALWAYS someone around to help you! Whether is a professor or a friend, you don't have to struggle.

    Tips for prospective students

    A lot of people think North Carolina A&T is a party school but I like to say that's what it is if that's what you make of it. As long as you stay focus on your classes and balance yourself so that your social life doesn't consume you, you can be as successful student.

    In three sentences

    A&T is a wonderful institution! They provide lots of scholarship, and internship opportunities, and provide other services to their students to ensure success after graduation. I also found out at A&T that as long as I asked for help, I received help!

    What to do for fun

    The entire campus is fun at A & T, you could sit outside and have fun seriously, but in the union they have pool tables and an arcade. Basketball games are always exciting, Football games are even better. Theres always bound to be a PS3/Xbox 360 tournement somewhere in somebodys room or in the living spaces. They have 3 on 3 and 5 on 5 pick up games in the spring, and flag football. They have male and female modeling troupes, with fashion shows, and talent shows. The fun gets as extensive as the studies here.

    Food and Dining

    The food is what you make of it, if you came for a tour and tried the food and it was good, then you will most likely like it, I personally after my freshman have strayed away from the Cafe and have been eating elsewhere, you can get food from everywhere on campus pretty much. They have Chic Fil A, Pizza Hut, Blimpies which is like Subway, Starbucks, and a new McCallisters Deli. But they have a chinese store across the street and a corner store, even an A & T corner store inside the student union. In walking distance they probably have anything you could imagine on Summit Ave, theres McDonalds, Burger King, Subway, Taco Bell, Sonic, Cookout, Arbys ect. the list goes on.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is the best at A & T, depending on where you choose to stay they have every option you could imagine. Apartments just outside of campus, coed dorms, traditional all male and all female dorms, as well as suite style dorms. You could even get a single room if you wanted. To my knowledge every dorm has a study room on each floor if you don't feel like walking to the library. You will have an RA (Residential Assistant) no matter where you live on campus there for your safety and in most cases for your mentorship. Theres security teams that sweep the campus at all times and in some cases they might stay around the dorms in the parking lot or so.

    Academic Rigor

    I would definetely say A & T is a very academically rigorous school, of course it depends on your major but overall you are expected to know atleast 70% of your work in absoluteley every class. With that being said A & T has probably one of the greatest supports for students with, free tutoring sessions, Supplemental Instruction with students that have taken your class already and got an A in it. As well as weekly required professor office hours.

    Tips for prospective students

    Never be afraid or feel bad about asking questions at A & T. Even people you wouldn't think would know something, most likely does. Especially in class, some professors don't want to answer questions during class because most classes are 50 minutes but always try to make friends in your classes, even if its one or two people that you can talk to about the work or just recieve a better understanding of the class.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina A & T State University is a school full of oppertunity, it is a prominent school with a lot of history and many great people have recognized talents from my school. It has the perfect atmosphere for learning and understanding all work thats assigned. Overall A & T is a good school because it allows good education in a fun environment setting.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of things to do for fun while on North Carolina A&T State University's campus. Certain things include getting involved in organizations, meeting new people, and getting out and interacting in everything that the University has.

    Food and Dining

    To be honest the food and dining at North Carolina A & T State University can be good on certain days. But if you are someone that does not like or feel accustomed to cafeteria food, you can always go to the University's Union which provides certain restaurants, snacks, and drinks. Another thing too, there are very close restaurants that you can call and have food delivered to your dorm.

    Dorm Life

    There are numerous and different types of dorms on North Carolina A & T State University's campus. Such as coed, all male, and all female. No matter what dorm you stay in on campus it might not be something that you will be comfortable with but you have to make the best of it because you never know how many times throughout all your years you will be in the same dorm again. Also if you are not a person that would like to stay on campus, there are also off campus housing apartments that you can live in.

    Tips for prospective students

    The tips that I have for prospective students are when you come to North Carolina A&T State University don't believe what you heard of the University being a party school because every HBCU is the way you choose for it to be.

    In three sentences

    On a scale of 0 to 10 I would give North Carolina A&T State University a 10. I The reason why I would give my school a 10 is because there are certain things about the University that are just fantastic. I I'm glad that I attend the University and can not wait until graduation in May of 2015.

    Fried chicken Fridays!

Everyone looks forward to the FCFs!

    Academic Rigor

    Although the school is well-known for their engineering department, other departments could be worked on.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't worry! When you get here, it might seem a little challenging, but keep your head up: there are many upperclassmen and staff to help you along the way.

    In three sentences

    NCAT is my dream college! I'm thrilled I picked such a great school that is determined to help me achieve higher education. With the people, school, and atmosphere, I would not change a thing.

    What to do for fun

    Things to do for fun is go play recreational sports, go to the gym and workout, or simply just walk around meet new people.

    Food and Dining

    The Food and Dining is great once you first get here but just like everything else, it begins to get to worse as you eat over and over again. But the positives are, they give you flex dollars so you can eat out of the union. The union has Chick-Fil-a, blimpsies, and pizza hut. Under the cafe there is a Starbucks and Mcallister's .

    Dorm Life

    The Dorm life is great. Everyone is nice and easy to get along with. There are nice dorms on this campus and they are placed in convenient places based on your class schedule is you can get in.

    Academic Rigor

    When it comes to academic rigor i would say you must stay away from negative people. Surround yourself around people that have high GPAs so it will make you strive to hang with them or do better than them. Lastly, Do not think college is all about partying.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips would be concentrate on academics and let everything come next. Your GPA it was really define you when talking to employers. Make sure you attend every career fair possible to network and try to get internships or potential full-time jobs.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina A & T State University was the best choice i had made to attend a Historic Black College University. The professor's are very well qualified and are very understanding. The campus life is defiantly where you want to be to have fun and enjoy your college years.

    This University can nurture any type of student. It has a wide variety of activities and programs for everyone to take advantage of. The University is very advantagous to students with an interest in Engineering and Science. The College of Engineering at A&T is well known around the nation and has a high retention rate within the College. Engineering students who come to A&T recieve a counselor that makes meetings mandatory so they make sure you stay on the right path. Also, the courses provide hands on learning that gives experience and education in one class. Class sizes are small enough for your Professor to know if you missed a class which helps students stay on top of their work. In all fields of study Professors care about their students and want to see them succeed. So if your a hard working student that wants to better yourself at a University that cares, this school is for you!

    Tips for prospective students

    I say to keep up with your studies. Yes, before I got to the school I was told that the school was a party school but honestly that is at any school. The campus has really focused on the students. I say to stay focused on everything that is given to you no matter where you go. You are at school for the education itself and do not let anyone make you think otherwise. College isn't a place to waste either. So at NC A&T we are full of A-G-G-I-E!!!!!!! P-R-I-D-E!!!!!!!!

    Bang for the buck

    At NC A&T SU tuition is a major topic. I am an out-of-state student so my tuition is much higher than in-state students. It is like this at most Colleges or Universities. Though the jump is significant, the education is worth it. NC A&T SU has been noticed as one of the top 10 schools in the Nation for Engineering. Therefore, and Engineering degree from my University holds weight in the Engineering world which gives you more career opportunities. Going to a post secondary school is all about bettering your chances at a well paying career. A degree from A&T is a big step in the right direction. Plus the University is good about trying to find students scholarships. They has numerous University scholarships and send out emails about other possible scholarships. We have an entire Hall commited to helping students find financial aid assistance and helping students towards a career.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus life is an exciting experience. With all the students and organizations on campus there is never a dull moment. The SGA always has a volunteer activity that needs active students. All the Fraternities and Sororities host events that energize the campus. Don't forget all the sport events that take place! The football stadium is always packed! The basketball gym is never empty, and sports such as baseball, softball and track are well supported. Numerous events like blaster bowls and campus awareness take place in our Student Union to keep students informed. Also, there are inspirational speakers that visit our campus such as Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton and Maya Angelou come to speak to our students. There is always something productive and fun to do on this campus and I love it!

    Am learning a lot

    NC A&T SU is a HBCU that has allowed me to understand more about culture and history. I have learned more about myself as well as my field of study. I am an engineering major here and the curriculum is tough! I have no doubt in my mind that all the hard work is worth it. I am only a Sophmore and have been taking engineering classes since my Freshman year here. NC A&T SU believes in starting you with your core curriculum courses soon. This way you understand what your major is truley about and can adjust if need be. My mind has been opened and enhanced since my enrollment at NC A&T SU.

    A&T is a wide campus surrounded by many places where you can go on or off campus. From shopping and going out to eat or somewhere quiet to study or clubs to drop it like it's hot; And of course who can forget the block party and GHOE (Greatest Home Coming On Earth)!

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to come out of A&T as a proud student if high grades you must STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! Use campus resources like computer labs and the library, and always meet your professors it is essential to meet your professor and talk to them about class, work, and your situation outside of class.

    Bang for the buck

    A&T is pretty costly in my own opinion but what college isn't. I have compared prices and reviews of many different colleges, and even have done campus visits: including Chapel Hill, ECU, High Point University, UNCG, and Greensboro College. I've compared their programs, book cost, and so on. A&T is relatively cheap compared to the other schools but they tend to have better and higher honors(HPU, ECU, & Chapel Hill). But A&T creates a lot of their books or have them specialized so their pretty costly and so are their on campus restaurants.

    Am enjoying being here

    I have enjoyed my time here at Aggie Land even though it's only have been a few months. A&T has basically many different programs happening here all of the time. The vast amount of programs range from international studies to study sessions and hundreds of clubs.

    Am learning a lot

    Here at NC A&T you do learn a lot more in a shorter time than you do in high school so naturally you must pay attention and have good organizing and listening skills to past with good grades. You learn that really quick. I am a freshman studying hard for my midterms and never had to study as extensively as this. A&T is a school that pushes their students to the limit and then some and I am proud to shout my Aggie Pride!

    What to do for fun

    When I stayed on campus I enjoyed the movie nights that certain sororities and fraternities held. Now that I stay off campus I go to plays or off campus events.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life was a eventful experience; however, I didn't really like having to share a community restroom.

    Police is always out doing their job. You never feel uncomfortable on at night just because it's night but even the the police are always out on the street doing their job.

    I like to lift and go to the club every now and then. I like to also visit other colleges because Im real close with my friends that go to other schools throughout North Carolina.

    Food and Dining

    The food can be better. I honestly ate out a lot because the food would mess with my stomach and I knew it was not good for me. For the most part it is good food.

    Dorm Life

    The only thing that makes dorm life bad is the kids. If you have annoying kids that always gets in trouble then the dorm will fine everyone in that building. That happened to me freshmen year and I was livid.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is very protective, yet and still never under appreciate the buddy system and taking precautionary measures. Public campuses are open to the public and you don't know the actions of others. But the campus police are more than prepared to handle situations that are called for them to act.

    Clubs and Activities

    Open mics for singers/poets/artists/etc. are available alongside programs designated for specific means of expression. There are clubs for sports all the way down to clubs for different cultures and languages. The vast amount of organizations allow students to earn experience in world ventures. Also, each organization requires volunteer work which help gain credit for overall school volunteer work and also allows students to learn the meaning of hard work.

    Bang for the buck

    The schools output is a great as your input. You are paying for your education so get out of it as much as you put into it and expect nothing less. Overall the experience here is beyond amazing. The Historical standpoint of this school is very important due to its allotment of pride and continuing of its legacy.

    What to do for fun

    There are parties of course it is a college after all. More importantly there are open mics, concerts, dating games, game-nights, movie nights, etc. The sky is the limit when it comes to having fun. Don't neglect the fact that everyone needs a break every now and then from the stress of college life.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is a hidden treasure on days when the other eating sources are closed down. Take advantage of the meal plan you select. When it comes to Flex dollars, savor them for dire situations or else be subjected to the cafeteria or ordering out. Get along with the workers of the eating places because they are cooking your food and are working just like others who help the school work.

    Dorm Life

    You're not going to get along with every person. Treat others the way you want to be treated is a very valued quote with dorm life. Take into consideration the problems from non-communication, so do not be afraid to speak and talk about personal preferences. Have a good sense of respect for not just roommates but all students in the dorms. Pay attention to any chances to get to know any dorm-mates better, and allow for mishaps in communication because no one is perfect.

    Academic Rigor

    The pressures of coursework seems much more overbearing than it is. Allow time to pay attention to course details. Pick a schedule that fits your way of living so as to not allow mishaps. The professional standings of the teachers are quite well, although some are still learning the ropes with teaching various different styles. Once behind in GPA, it will be very wise to go to summer school. Summer school is a hidden treasure to keep up with/ or get a heads up on a GPA standing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Begin your freshman year off with getting to know your teachers and students in your department. Branch out to other students and teachers in order to gain recognition and long-time friends. Allow time for breaks but stay focused on your studies. Enjoy college and do not allow too much to stray you from your studies. Get involved with volunteering and organizations in order to gain experience. Enjoy your college career.

    In three sentences

    A distinct sense of heritage and pride from the history found on this campus. Beyond all else, to continue the legacy with new found students and profound professors. Grants any student/faculty/or parent the college experience of work and play extremely well.

    The mission of the University Police Department is to be proactive in the quest to reduce the opportunity for crime, accidents and loss of individual and institutional property, through investigative processes and improve the frequency of apprehension of those responsible. To assist in accomplishing this mission, our primary philosophy in the way we operate, is based on continuous interaction with the community and problem solving techniques.

    Greek Life

    In addition to finding kindred spirits in our Greek system, N.C.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor is vital to the vision and mission of the university, at North Carolina A&T State University must include an external commitment to continuing vibrant and engaged community relationships that effectively serve the Piedmont region and the state of North Carolina.

    Tips for prospective students

    Expect to have challenging experiences, but you will learn from those experiences. Take your classes serious if you want to pass them. Become good friends with your teachers because when it comes time to put in grades and you know your not doing good in that certain class the may give you the benefit of the doubt.

    North Carolina A&T State University is a wonderful institution with a large amount of opportunity for all. Everyone is friendly and willing to give any assistance to those who need help. North Carolina A&T State University still has award-winning faculty, intensive research programs and community-focused initiatives, but now the campus is more diverse, curriculum includes nanoengineering and the idea of public service encompasses not only in Greensboro, but the world.

    Campus Safety

    Campus is relatively safe. We have a two police stations on campus and gates that lock at night to keep people from driving through at night.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is very active and I enjoy being apart of it.

    Clubs and Activities

    Lots and Lots of clubs and activities. As far as greek life, we have the Devine Nine, which are the 9 African American founded fraternaties and sororities (I'm a member of a D9 org, Zeta Phi Beta), and the Greek Life Council which would be all other greek lettered organizations on campus. Two big modeling troups: Couture and Verge. Couture also has a singing/spoken word troupe associated with it. Bible study groups, club promotion groups, plus more.

    Great for these types of students

    A&T is great for students who have a variety of interests. There is plenty for the more gregarious student to be involved in.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Holland Bowl is a bowl out side of the dorm called Holland Hall. We have kick ball tournaments, flag foot ball, etc out there. Its also right in front of the cafeteria which makes it an ideal place to hang out.

    Bang for the buck

    I'm an out-of-state student and I believe that I am way over paying for school (especially since I do not recieve any financial aid). But, if you are in-state, A&T is pretty affordable.

    What to do for fun

    A&T has an active party culture and, being that Greensboro is about 45 minutes away from UNC and Duke, there are always parties to go to. The school throws Gym Jams about once a month, which are just like school dances in our gym. And, as I stated earlier, there are plenty of groups and organizations on our campus that one might enjoy.

    Food and Dining

    Cafeteria food gets old but, our caf does serve good food. And when you do get tired of cafeteria food, you can always go to the student union or McAllisters (which is under our cafeteria) to eat.

    Dorm Life

    I, personally, do not enjoy dorm life but, it suited me well for my first years at A&T. For roommates, I would suggest establishing a good communication line with them and being firm and assertive about your space but, do be flexible. Roommates can turn out to be good friends.

    Academic Rigor

    A&T has a variety of professors and class levels. I would suggest looking into your classes and professors before taking any class, though. But, there are definately enough professors to suit your learning style.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're planning to come to A&T, come focused. A&T has alot of distractions so, you have to be dedicated to your studies. Get involved. There is a very active Greek Life on campus, that I am apart of, and can be very fun at times. There are also modeling troupes, choirs, honors societies, etc that some one can join.

    In three sentences

    NCAT is definately a fun school to attend but, you have to be focused to do well here. There are alot of things going on on campus and in the community that one could be apart of and enjoy. NCAT is also a very diverse campus, there are many people from a variety of areas.

    The food is good. Especially Fried Chicken Fridays.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is fun your first two years because you meet new people and your away from home.

    Academic Rigor

    If you work hard, you will get a good grade out of any class because effort is a key part of success.

    Tips for prospective students

    Remember to keep your studies first then fun later because if you don't it could cause your GPA to drop. Also, get to know your teacher a little and communicate because that helps a lot when they see you trying to learn. Lastly get involved within the university with different clubs, sports, or organizations because its good for networking.

    In three sentences

    The Best Homecoming on Earth because once your an Aggie, your always one. This school is a historically black college and you get to experience different events that you would not be able to if you went to Duke or Harvard.

    Campus Safety

    A & T is a big campus. It is well lit at night and there's always people outside so you'll never really feel unsafe. Also, they are emergency phones placed around campus so you can call for help in the event of an emergency and there is also a police station on campus.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is pretty big, but it is also pretty hard to break into if you don't already know someone involved, but sometimes they throw parties that are open to everyone.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are over 100 clubs and organizations and this does not even include all the intramural sports teams.

    Great for these types of students

    Everyone! There is truly something to do for everybody.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    1. Aggie Pride!!! (It speaks for itself) 2. GHOE!! The greatest homecoming on Earth. I am sure you've already headr, but just in case you didn't, A & T homecomings are legendary.

    Bang for the buck

    If you're in-state, you're golden. Out of state tuition is a little costly, but when compared to other schools of its size, A & T is usually a little less-expensive.

    What to do for fun

    Everything! The best part about attending an HBCU is that you'll never be bored. There's always a party going on somewhere, some Greek life or sporting event, and over 100 organizations to get involved with.

    Food and Dining

    Don't believe the horror stories about college dining. The caf is always packed on Wing Wednesdays and Fried Chicken Fridays. Also, if you don't like the entree, there is always the deli, pizza, the grill (burgers, hot dogs, fries, etc.), and the vegan bar. These things are offered every day.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms at A & T are great for the most part, but try to avoid those on the South side of campus (barbee, Vanstory, Morrow). Living there may be more fum, but the rooms are a lot smaller and not as nice. The best dorms for the dollar is definitely the Village which actually consists of 4 dorms: Blair & Mcneil (Honors only) and Richmond & McCain.

    Academic Rigor

    This really depends on your major, but in the school of business you will have to work hard to earn your grade. The work load gets heavier and heavier each year, but you will get used to it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Research your program of interest. A & T has the most opportunities for our business and engineering majors, but we have several other outstanding programs as well. Once you've chosen your major, contact your Dean immediately. He can't help you if he doesn't know you.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina A & T State University is an amazing HBCU. Aggie Pride is both a legend and a movement. We graduate the most top Black engineers and accounting majors every year.

    There are school marches, concerts, haunted houses, parties, and games for every sport to attend.

    Food and Dining

    The cafe has various things to choose between like a buffet style. There is Simply To Go and McAllister's under the cafe. Simply To Go is for students to get a meal to take on the go. McAllister's is a dine-in or eat-out restaurant. The union has Blimpies, Chick-fil-a, and Pizza Hut inside it which are all delicious.

    Dorm Life

    A lot of friends will be made just by being in the same residence halls. The rules of he halls are laid back. Students feel at home and relaxed and have good times in every resident hall lobby. Be open to making new friends and doing excitingly different activites.

    Academic Rigor

    Most classes are pretty simple, but project due dates have to be met; they usually count a huge part of final grades. Most teachers wont allow late work. Financial aid has to be kept up with and registration deadlines can not be missed, but the strictness helps to keep students' focused and on point.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay focused, but don't forget to have fun along the way. Breaks are always needed in between study sessions. A planner is always helpful in remembering deadlines. Never let the work overload.

    In three sentences

    NC A&T SU is a great college to attend. It is exciting, unique, and has many different lifestyles of people. The university has a tremendous amount of resources to better its students' learning. I learned how to write an argumentative essay accurately and various other things.

    Campus life offers so much to do, especially in the hotter months. There are so many forums and activities to attend. In addition, the city of Greensboro boasts a pretty happening night life, whether you prefer a walk in the park, or a night out with your friends.

    Food and Dining

    For what its worth, the cafe is satisfactory, nothing special, but the eateries around campus are exceptional.

    Dorm Life

    I believe I had the most fun living in the dorms. Pride Hall was my choice and it kept me in the loop with what was going on with campus life. I met some of the best friends I have in my years at Pride.

    Academic Rigor

    The classrooms promote healthy, productive debates and encourage as much participation as possible. Teachers will help you along the way if you get lost.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would encourage new students to focus their first year on academics. Establish a good repor with your teachers so that if you have questions, you can go to them with confidence and allow them to see how serious you are about your education. Mingle as much as possible and get involved in as much as you can personally handle to improve your networking skills. Enjoy your time there and remember: Aggie Born, Aggie Breed & When I Die, I'll be Aggie Dead!

    In three sentences

    NCAT is the greatest school to attend if you are in search of learning about various cultures through hands on experience as they provide a diverse pool of backgrounds; though the school is an HBCU, they encourage you to interact with different backgrounds around campus and in the classroom through rigorous learning and student involvement. The school pride is outstanding from the moment you see the signs on W. Market to the football stadium by Sullivan St. AGGIE PRIDE!

    There are a few different places to eat on campus. The Cafe of course food in there is not bad but you will see the same food it was OK as a freshman but I have not been back since. Then you can go to the Union they have AggieWings for chicken, Chick-fa-lae and blimpies. The cafe also has a Starbucks and a grab-n-go meal shop.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life some dorms are better than others but the better dorms cost more, we do have what we call freshman dorms but they do not seclude freshman to one area like some other schools. Best dorms on campus are The Villages, Pride Hall, and the Suites. But again are the more expensive dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    A&T has one of the best Engingeering departments. The College of Arts & Sciences is good as well they graduate a good amount of the class every year. But remember this is college you will have to work for your grades this is not high school anymore.

    There is always something going on at A&T! SUAB sponsor a lot of activities that you can do for fun on campus and every Wednesday night there is a karaoke night which sounds entertaining.

    Food and Dining

    I am not a fan of the Williams Cafeteria because the quality of the food is poor to me. I recommend having a lot of Flex dollars so you can dine at McCallisters.

    Dorm Life

    My freshman year I stayed in Haley Hall which was a good experience because you can bond with your fellow incoming freshman. This past year I was in Aggie Village which I would reccomend because it is right in the middle of everything and for Business majors its not a far walk to Craig.

    Academic Rigor

    Make sure you balance your time well between your classes and studying. Don't bite off more than you can chew with your course load.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tip for any prospective student is to read! That sounds like common knowledge but it is so important. When your given a chapter don't wait for the teacher to discuss it go ahead and read it before the class.

    In three sentences

    I am going into my junior year at North Carolina A&T. My major is Accounting which is very difficult but I am provided with amazing teachers that want to see you succeed. The school also provides free tutoring with tutors that may be in the same major or have taken the same classes.

    Campus Safety

    North Carolina A&T has one of the safest campus' that you will ever come across. We have our own campus police and there are lights on every part of campus. The light poles are each equipped with a help button. In case of emergency, one would press the button and campus police will be at that spot before you can blink your eyes.

    Greek Life

    North Carolina A&T is very safe! We have our very own campus police and the whole campus is equipped with lights that have a help button attached to them, in case of emergency.

    Clubs and Activities

    All fraternities and sororities are offered. Whether they are active/suspended will be up to you to find out.

    Great for these types of students

    There is a club and activity for everything that you could possibly want to take part in and if there isn't you can start your own club.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    North Carolina A&T is great for all types of students.

    Bang for the buck

    There are no unusual locations.

    What to do for fun

    I love A&T but they raise tuition every year. I believe that the tuition should not be so high for out of state students.

    Food and Dining

    There are always events held on campus for fun. There is also a bowling alley not too far from school and there are alot of clubs to go to.

    Dorm Life

    The cafeteria food is very repetitive but there is a Pizza Hut, Blimpies, Chic-fil-A and other fast food places on campus that are wonderful.

    Academic Rigor

    You have to get used to living with different people. You have to set rules for your room and get used to living in a dorm. I did not like it because I prefer to have my own personal space.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not procrastinate on anything because you never know what will come up and mess up your plans.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina A&T is a great school. It has a great environment for networking and making friends. The only con is that it is not very diverse since it is an HBCU.

    Overall my experience has been amazing, I am so proud to scream out the infamous AGGIE PRIDE at any given moment. Not only have I invested in a solid education, but I met great people along the way.

    What to do for fun

    When it comes to fun there are many events that take place such as step shows, sports, to gym jams. It's not hard to keep yourself busy.

    Food and Dining

    The new amenities on the campus is the McAlister's and Starbucks they offer a nice setting in which many student's such as myself go to when in need of something delicious to eat.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is very, nice. Most of the Dorms have been renovated so now most of the dorm are somewhat plush.

    Academic Rigor

    Academically you will be challenged, but you will also meet some amazing professors that want to see you succeed in life. The majority of the professors that I have come across take pride in knowing that their student are excelling not because they get special benefits, but because they take their jobs home with them and they want to make us the students as well rounded as possible.

    Tips for prospective students

    I have a couple of tips for prospective student, one of which is something my professor told me, if it's not worth fighting for it's not worth having, so although you may have obstacles thrown at you never give up without a fight. Another final tip that I have is never be afraid to ask for help with anything, because the one who asks questions shows that you actually care.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has helped me over come my phobias regarding school. I've learned the true meaning of responsibility, team-work as well as the importance of being organized. The experience thus far has been culturally motivating as well as stimulating within my field of studies.

    A & T doesn't provide scholarships to anyone that has In-State tuition. Work Study isn't guaranteed to students that really needs it.

    There's a lot to do on campus. You can join one of the numerous organizations on the campus or within your major.

    I don't really go in the cafeteria like that but when I do I really enjoy Fried Chicken Fridays and Wing Wednesday; these are the best times to go in the cafeteria, oh and on holidays.

    The dorms are good for the most part. Most of the dorms on the south side of the campus has a lot of AC problems and technical problems especially with the elevators. There's not really a bug problem, if you clean up after yourself then you won't have any pest problems.

    Academic Rigor

    I don't really understand this portion.

    Campus Safety

    There are university police everywhere, and buildings on boths sides of campus with police facilities located inside. We have poles with phones that will automatically connect to the police if you need some protection from anything. Also you can call the police if you have a late night class and they will escort you back to your room.

    Greek Life

    Our Greeks are very secretive but when probates (the crossing of a new line) begin the whole campus comes out to support everyone.

    Clubs and Activities

    On campus everyone belongs to some type of club, its a way you meet new people and become well known. At North Carolina A&T State University we don't just focus on benefiting our school we look to benefit our community as a whole. So all of the clubs and some classes will have to perform community service, it may sound like a horrible thing to do when in actuality it is a very humbling experience to see the way the people in the same city that you stay in live.

    What to do for fun

    For fun on campus all you have to do is just walk around and you are bound to find someone having something going on. During the first semester most people be in the union and then during spring semester everyone sits outside the cafe where there is a dj and the cafe holds a cookout.

    Food and Dining

    On campus there is the cafe, McAlister's, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Pizza Hut and Blimpies. The cafe has great food, some days we have fresh crab legs, ribs and every friday is fried chicken friday.

    Dorm Life

    The Dorms on campus are all wonderful even some of the traditional dorms. You always have your own closet, hot water in the showers and the janitors are always there to clean up. Everyone grows to love their dorm at some point in time, during the spring we host a dorm step off competition where all the dorms have their own step team and they compete for the title.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are somewhat rigorous, only if you miss class and don't look for no help. There are plenty of facilities on campus to help you improve your academic level because it can be intense. For example about 95% of students who enroll in statistics class will fail the first time taking it because it is so hard. But with tutoring and assistance from the professor you could make it out the first time.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips for students would be to go to class all of the time because missing one class will lead to you being left behind in the information given. Also make sure that you meet your academic advisor, they will help you so much to find courses to take and scholarships in your department that may be able to pay for schooling. Last but not least just stay focused, a lot is always happening on campus and its all fun but just make sure to place your education first.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina A&T State University is a wonderful school to attend. Everyone is so nice to one another and you don't even have to know them, its like you're one big family. The professors are there to make sure that you pass their class as long as you show effort.

    What to do for fun

    The most thing that is talked about when it comes to NC A&T is our schools homecoming yeah i know that is once a year but it is the most exciting thing to hear, see and attend. We have the GHOE greatest homecoming ever. It is like one big family all at once hanging, cooking, partying and enjoying the whole entire campus. However besides the main event on campus there are also little things to attend. We have spoken word, game night, movie night and just little informative activities that pop up around campus throughout the year. We also have Aggie fest which is just a week of students coming out to show there talents where you can win prices and start promoting yourself to become the next Mr or Misses of the school or different organizations.

    Food and Dining

    Of course coming in as a freshman the food seems great especially coming out of high school where you use to eat whatever was served that day but in college there is much more selection. What i like about A&T is that they are very diverse when it comes to the food most of the time pertaining to lunch and dinner. Even though my school is an HBCU they cater to each persons wants and needs when it comes to food. There is white bread and wheat bread, whole milk and 2% milk just simple things like that.

    Dorm Life

    As far as living on campus it has its pros and its cons. Living in a dorm is actually fun especially if you are an only child like myself. At NC A&T there are several dorms a person can choose from whether is is a same sex or coed. I stayed in an all girls dorm my freshman year and then an coed sophomore year. All of A&Ts dorms are suitable and clean; of course not as clean as your own personal home but clean enough to adapt to. But a person has to realize all individuals who live there is what helps contribute to the dirtiness or cleanliness. I feel my school did a great job when matching up who would stay with who in the dorm however everyone has a falling out with there roommate here and there.

    Academic Rigor

    The down fall about A&T when it comes to the to academics and i am sure this is at many schools. The reality is not all teachers and even students are helpful when it comes to informing you on things that you probably need to know but didn't know how to ask and or find out. Not all advisors are going to help you with choosing your classes in a way that will help your work load or your financial stability. I myself have ran into professors that honestly did not care if a student passed or failed there class. There are professors that are hard on you to help your success while there are others who are just hard because they are irritable.

    Tips for prospective students

    I know most students come in undecided but i would advise anyone to go ahead and do research on what interest them prior to attending any college. Know what classes you need to take a don't need to take. Become very engaging with your advisor and or mentor. Ask question because there is no such thing as being too knowledgeable. Make you keep all copies of all paper work whether it is from your teacher, advisor or the financial aid department. Ask about organizations and join as many as you can handle. Network for gain in intelligence, success and opportunity but most of all have fun never create too much of a work load that you can not handle.

    In three sentences

    A&T is one of the greatest historically black universities. This school not only has great faculty that will help you pursue your career but it also has a great home felt environment. A&T is great academically but also very engaging in providing its students with a fun atmosphere.

    North Carolina A&T State University is great for students who are motivated to make a difference, discovering what it means to become independent, and desire a family atmosphere.

    Tips for prospective students

    For prospective students planning to attend North Carolina A&T, I would suggest him or her to stay on top of responsibilities, such as financial aid awards, major changes, class schedules, and payments to the university. The Office of Student Financial Aid can be very slow at verifying awards, causing several students to be forced to take a semester out of school. If he or she (the student) maintains a responsible attitude, this saddening event can easily be avoided. Secondly, I would advise prospective students to prevent themselves from getting too caught up into the campus life. The numerous events that are going on within the campus's area can definitely through students off of their academics; I have noticed this from some students within my class of 2014. Lastly, prospective students must budget and conserve the money that they have as much as they possibly can. As an incoming college student, it is important to save most of the money that is available to him or her for emergencies only. During my freshman year at North Carolina A&T, some friends of mine and I were stranded at a movie theater and neither one of us had a car to drive back to campus. However, with money set aside, we were able to catch a taxi to arrive safely at the university.

    Bang for the buck

    In-state students cost of attendance annually totals to approximately $16,348, which is increasing due to the cost of living and the circumstances within the country. Out-of-state students pay about $8,000 more in tuition and fee expenses. Some students may have difficulty in paying their semester bills, but there are scholarships that are available to apply for. When scholarships and grants aren't enough, my personal last resort, unsubsidized and subsidized loans, are also available after completion of the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus life at North Carolina A&T State University is amazing. The critically acclaimed marching band can certainly boost any individual's sense of AGGIE PRIDE! Although the football team fails to win many games each season, the feeling of love and satisfaction never seems to decrease. Plus, our remaining sports, such as men's and women's basketball, track, softball, baseball, swimming, and bowling add to the excitement and pride dispersed throughout the university. When sports activities fail to add to the enjoyment at North Carolina A&T, Homecoming and Aggie Fest events usually replace this downfall. Homecoming consists of a gospel show, fashion show, comedy show, step show, pep rally, and concert that includes artists that have been selected by the current students, staff, and alumni. In contrast, Aggie Fest contains events such as a carnival, Greek fraternity probates, and various outside activities.

    Am learning a lot

    North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University is a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) that stresses academic excellence through its school motive Explore, Discover, Become. Throughout my freshman year at North Carolina A&T, i have had an array of professors that stress enhanced teaching and completion of assignments in a profound manner. There were student instructors (SI's) and teacher assistants (TA's) willing to assist in courses such as Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Computer Programming. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to work in study groups with diverse students that built intellectual and interpersonal relationships. Furthermore, there are exceptional amounts of research opportunities available to undergraduate and graduate students. I am currently in a research program that studies the use of biometrics in cyber security fields to quickly and accurately identify an individual to ensure safety within the cyber infrastructure. I am ecstatic to continue my education at this illustrious university. With hard work and diligence, I am certain I will continue to maintain a superb grade point average and be known as a student of change within the community, on campus, and throughout the world.

    The following majors: psychology, engineering, accounting, agriculture, and business.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay focused! A&T campus is not small and it's very easy to roll over and forget about that class you signed up for that starts at 9AM. Every weekend will not be filled with tons of things to do, but there will be plenty of fun weekends. Do not lose sight of why you came to college in the first place. Form relationships with your professors as well as someone in the administration building; college is all about networking.

    Bang for the buck

    As an out of state student it is tough to pay for school. However, as long as you're willing to do well academically and apply for all the scholarships you qualify for everything should be great. A&T is a public school; this means tuition varies for everyone based on the type and number of courses one registers for. No, it isn't fair that some students only pay about $3000 for tuition and others pay $7000, but that's how public universities are. If you're a resident of NC this probably won't be a problem, for out of state students just be prepared and mindful. Only you can make your experience here worth it.

    Am enjoying being here

    I transferred to North Carolina A&T from Bennett College and although things are very different here, I am enjoying my college experience so far. There are tons of clubs/organizations to join to enhance your time here and connect with people with similar interests as yourself. The HBCU atmosphere is something I could never explain you would just have to experience it for yourself.

    Dorm Life

    dorm life can be an adjustment for freshmen. i generally just sleep in my room. i choose to study away from the room due to the traffic from my roommates friends. next year, i plan to share a suite with friends in my circle that have the same academic and social interests as myself.

    What to do for fun

    a&t is the ultimate party school. its rare to have nothing to do. clubs are every where loyus is one of the hot spots. im not a party person so i can't tell you much about that!

    Food and Dining

    the food is alright. we have fried chicken fridays and wing wednesday on the first wednesday of every month. i eat the same pizza and salad every day. i am not in favor of the food that much. the union is where we have a pizza hut, a blimpe's, and a chick filet. i use all my flex dollars eating those fod instead of the cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    the dorms are ok. i live in morrow hall but i would recommend living in the village. it's right in the middle of campus therefore living in the village is extremely convenient. the suites are on the other side of campus so i would not suggest living in those dorms to anyone.

    Academic Rigor

    a 2.0 and under will place you on academic probation. you will then have a semester to pull your grade up and if not, then you will be existed from the university. you are expected to come to class be on time and put forth your best effort. you are allowed a certain amount of absences depending on how many times you have that particular class a week. when you miss just one class it is that easy to fall behind so i pressure you to attend class on time every day unless u absolutely have to miss it.

    Tips for prospective students

    if you do not like being away from home and you are not a resident of greensboro then do not come. homesickness is something serious so i would say stay home. come focused and ready to work and you will be just fine. don't come to party or just because your friends are attending. come because you are serious about obtaining a degree and bettering your future! there is no time to play around.

    Food and Dining

    The food is definitely an adjustment from home cooked meals everyday to eating processed high fiber food. There are other eateries on campus that you could go to besides eating in the cafeteria everyday. As long as you keep a well balanced diet and try to eat something different everyday the cafeteria isn't half bad.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is the best experience that any college freshman can have. It's a transition going from home to dorm life , but once the complete transition is made you begin to meet a lot of lifetime friends. I enjoyed staying on campus my freshman year and to this day I still talk to many of the people I met in my dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are only as hard as you make them on yourself and it's very easy to fall behind. I would advise anyone to stay ahead of the teacher and take advantage of the office hours. Do not be afraid to ask questions because the only stupid questions are the one's not asked .

    Tips for prospective students

    As with any school you must know your information , people are going to tell you everything so come prepared. Come with an open mind and be willing to learn and mature as you matriculate through college. Always stay on top of your work and make sure you STUDY STUDY STUDY !

    Campus Safety

    Very strict on campus. Parties neighboring the campus get shut down when things get too loud. Not many gun-related incidents have been reported in the last year. University police do a great job on campus, but not so much with University housing off-campus.

    Greek Life

    Not as much of a part of Campus life as in the past. When it is time to cross the entire University shows up to support in the Corbett Sports Center. Greeks focus on creating programs for other students and community service.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are plenty of clubs in Greensboro to choose from. Shuttle services take A&T students to and from these clubs. Plenty of concerts down the street at the Greensboro Coliseums and plays from UNC-G, Greensboro College, Guilford Tech, and A&T are frequent.

    Great for these types of students

    It is really great for everyone. Students are very non-discriminatory and very welcoming to new students with different backgrounds. As long as you are not sitting in your room everyday after class, you will LOVE this university!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    In the fall, The Greatest Homecoming on Earth is the highlight of the semester. You will have way too much fun and meet so many different Aggies that have gone on and made a name for themselves. The entire week is a blast!!!

    Bang for the buck

    NC A&T has a great engineering, psychology, and journalism programs. Journalism is very active on campus and even produces shows. Many influential black individuals have ties back to the school and visit with opportunities for eager students.

    What to do for fun

    Besides the obvious college parties and club scene, the school is right next to Downtown Greensboro. There are plenty of cool restaurants and weird stores to check out.

    Food and Dining

    I'm not gonna mince words. The food isn't always great. There are not many healthy options available. There is a mart close to the school where you can get some fruits and vegetables though.

    Dorm Life

    There are plenty of activities put on by Resident assistants. Activities range from pizza giveaways, to tutoring sessions, to helping you manage your time and stress.

    Academic Rigor

    Completing the classwork is not enough. Professors won't take notice of you unless you prove a thorough knowledge beyond their classroom.

    Tips for prospective students

    A&T will force you to grow up. You WILL have to take charge of certain situations in order to do well. The university will not hand you anything. Stay on top of your credit hours so you graduate on time.

    Campus Safety

    I can say that I feel more safe on this campus than the last college I attended. I'm not worried about being robbed, followed, etc. I say this because the campus police are like a hawk because no matter where you are, there is at least one walking around, riding a bike, or sitting in the car.

    Greek Life

    I have not joined a fraternity yet, however they hold all of their principles up! They show that they are definitely for the people, for service, for community, and for scholarship.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs are very educational and helps develop the student into a leader by showing example. They can work on teamwork just a little bit more, but the result is always made. They all have the principle of community and service!

    Great for these types of students

    If you are looking for a school to push you and unlock your potential while having fun, then this is the school for you. You have to have an open mind to not only academics, but the community and developing yourself as a person all at the same time.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I can say (speaking as a out of state student) that I've never been to a college with a lot of social events. There was an ice cream social, a soul food cookout, and a class gathering all in one week! Not to mention the regional clubs so that you will feel like you never left home. You have the west coast club, the mid-west club, the east coast club, etc.

    Bang for the buck

    As I've said before you're tuition money not only pays for great teachers, but it pays for research projects that you can participate in, it pays for career fairs, out of state trips, campus activities, etc.

    What to do for fun

    This school is amazing. You know you're tuition is going to something for the students and not to make the college look nice. I've went on out of state trips, I've played paint ball wars, I've seen new movies in the cinema for free, etc. Not to mention paid research projects in my major!

    Food and Dining

    Like any other cafe the students will get tired of the same food, but NC A&T has great tasting food. It is healthy and nutritional. I'd say change it up every once in a while.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is great. The staff makes sure they group you with like minded people. They make sure the students feel safe and pay attention to any negative review so that they may stop the problem before it grows.

    Academic Rigor

    Their educational programs, classes (especially summer classes) will keep you on your toes. If you miss one day, it's like missing the equivalent of three days worth of classes.

    North Carolina A&T State University is a great University. It does not get too many reviews because of how small the school is, but that is the best thing about it. Despite it's size, the education to be found is top notch!

    Campus Safety

    Granted, no college is perfectly safe. But NCAT does put a lot of effort into keeping students safe. There are security guards scattered around the campus and in the dorms almost 24/7. There are alarms in every dorm building, and announcements are given daily on anything that may be going on. Notifications are also sent out through texting and announcement boards so students are always kept up to date. And there are posts spread out on campus, so if a student is in danger, he or she can use one to contact police immediately.

    Greek Life

    Sororities and Fraternities are also very popular at NCAT. There are many to choose from, and from what I've seen, those involved put a lot of effort into what they do while having fun at the same time. I don't know much about any of them, but I do know that if anyone is interested in joining one, NCAT won't disappoint.

    Clubs and Activities

    NCAT offers many different ways of getting involved and having something to do other than just going to class. There are many sports, musical groups (such as the well-known marching band,) clubs, and other such things that students have the opportunity to participate in.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who like to party and have a lot of fun will definitely fit in at NCAT. Those who want a good Engineering degree would also fit well here, as NCAT has a very good engineering and math program. Those who like to get involved in school events and lively parties will do as well.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I'll be honest, I didn't get very involved my freshman year, so I cannot provide much information on this subject right now!

    Bang for the buck

    NCAT is expensive just like any college, but it's payable. If you work to earn your financial aid and scholarships, debt won't be a life-long issue once you graduate. spending money wisely is important, and making sure not to add anything unnecessary to your tuition bill is essential.

    What to do for fun

    There are sporting events, dorm activities, parties, movie nights, and many other fun events scattered around campus at different times of the year. NCAT is a very lively school to attend, and there is something fun going on around every corner. A lot of emphasis is put into being a family and getting involved, and at NCAT, that isn't a hard thing to do.

    Food and Dining

    There are many different locations on campus aside from the Cafe, such as Chick Fil A, McAlisters, and a number of other places. There are also many different restaurants that are close to the campus where students can walk or drive to if they need something late at night when everything is closed. The campus cafe has a large selection everyday, but it does tend to get tiring.

    Dorm Life

    Depending on what dorm a student stays in, his or her dorm life can end up being very nice or very bad. There are some dorms that have a bad reputation, and some that are like a heavenly gift. A student is guaranteed a good dorm if he or she works hard, so with good grades comes good dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    NCAT has a reputation for being a party school, and it is! But there are many bright students that attend the school, and A&T puts a strong emphasis on studies and academics. The professors WILL challenge their students and make them earn their A, and are also not hesitant to fail a student.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are living on campus, be prepared to face a lot of challenges, especially as a freshman. There will be times when you won't be able to focus, or you'll find yourself wishing you weren't there. Not everyone who attends college is there to stay focused and will sometimes make it hard for you to do so yourself. Don't give up and don't be afraid to get help. But also have fun and make many life-long memories.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is a good college! The staff and academics are very well organized and helpful towards your degree. It takes a lot of getting used to though, and not everything is what you would expect.

    Campus Safety

    I felt completely safe on-campus at A&T. I am naturally a cautious person, but whenever I was out late, or walking to my dorm from a friend's dorm, there were always more people going in my direction (which comforted me). There were also always cops patrolling in cars, security guards walking around, as well as cop cars stationed in certain areas. The campus police close the gates to nearly every entrance around campus, after a certain time. The few that are open, are watched heavily, and there is even a car check at the busiest entrance.

    Greek Life

    There are plenty of plots around campus that show that A&T has Greek life, but we don't see much of them except near the beginning and end of the school year, and at homecoming step-show, of course.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are clubs, and activities for everyone. Every type of person, with any/every kind of hobby with find a club/group that enjoys the same things, even if it's just a familiar hometown.

    Great for these types of students

    If you like studying, and school-work, this school can be good for you. The library is open 24-hours a day (Sunday-Thursday), with special hours on the weekend. If you are a student who does what they have to do, as well as let loose on the weekends, the nightlife is great so you will be well accommodated.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    A known rule around campus is that unless you are in that particular frat or sorority- you are not to step onto their turf (confined area decorated with their name).

    Bang for the buck

    A&T is known for its band and engineering program. On-top of those nationally known things, A&T has other great things. The teachers are great, the food is good, the nightlife is thrilling, and job placement after graduation is usually pretty high.

    What to do for fun

    There are PLENTY of things to do for fun. There are events that the school clubs, and groups set up every week. There are also night clubs people go to from Thursday-Sunday. Some students who have off-campus apartments have parties on the weekends. If you don't want to leave your dorm, sometimes, especially near the beginning and end of the year, dorms set up their own parties, where there is food, music, and good conversation.

    Food and Dining

    The fast food places on-campus never get old, but the cafeteria (main dining hall) switches up their meals as often as they can. Breakfast and lunch are great, but dinner is where we usually get leftovers- so beware.

    Dorm Life

    I enjoyed living in a dorm. I got to know a lot of people that I would not have met otherwise. I also had fun going to all of the functions that the Resident Assistants set up weekly/monthly. Though it sometimes isn't as enjoyable when there are communal bathrooms. You get use to it, and if you get the right roommate, you might have a new best friend.

    Academic Rigor

    I enjoyed all of my teachers so far, and I'm going on my third semester. Every teacher I have had has been nice, funny, and engaging. They keep you interested and they don't attempt to cram information in your head. They are reasonable teachers, that really work towards teaching you things and helping you remember them.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is important that you stay focused on your studies. By all means, enjoy yourself, hang out with friends, and party, within reason. Always remember why you are there (to graduate and receive your degree).

    NC A&T SU is a nice school. There are always interesting things happening on-campus. The school pride is fantastic!

    Campus Safety

    The campus police are very skilled at keeping the campus secure as possible. At a certain time at night they shut down parts of the campus so no one can easily go in and out without clearance. Also, there are security guards keeping watch at each dormitory to ensure safety at the late hours. The residential assistant provides all students with a emergency number to contact the campus police in case there are any distrubances.

    Greek Life

    There are greek for men and women. They have plots set up all around campus that represents who they are. Each greek group have their own color and focus. Every year they have a cross over where they induct members who want to be apart of their group.

    Clubs and Activities

    North Carolina A&T State has a variety of clubs of all subject types. I recommend everyone to get involved in a club to express yourself and meet new people to set up connections.

Located on the bottom floor of the Union, there is a game room and computer lab. Every friday evening they host a movie night with foods and beverages. Also, there are forums and poetry nights for students to freely express themselves and be open.

    Food and Dining

    The food and nutrition at was great. There are several choices of dining on opposite ends of the campus in walking distance. They also provide a cafeteria in the middle of campus as well with a wide variety of healthy choices of food.

    Dorm Life

    I personally enjoyed the dorm life when I was on campus. It gave me the opportunity to connect with various types of people and develop life long friendships and networks. The downside to the dorm life was when I wanted my own space to study, sleep in or relax without anyone around.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors at A&T State can be demanding of perfection in the classroom. They instill the importance of high work ethic outside of the classroom. It may be overwhelming at times however, the enforcement of perfection is needed to prepare you for the corporate world.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest that all prospective students have clear goals in mind for your major. Always keep a copy of your documents and any changes you make during the semester. Make sure you stay connected to your advisor for assistance and develop relationships with your professors. I believe when you stay on top of your requirement it will save you from stress in your latter years.

    In three sentences

    Dorm Life

    The Dorm Life is lovely. Dorm Life is what most students attending universities are waiting to experience. At A & T, our dorms actually take the time out to interact with us residence. They have resident activities for us to participate in to get a better feeling of those we are living with as well as teaching us how to interact with others.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic level is great here. I wasn't fully aware of how outstanding it was until I registered. You could not go through any course with out learning something that sticks with you when you walk out of the class.

    I would advise prospective students to be very open minded when attending A & T as well as being prepared to challenge their mind and enjoy this life time experience.

    The food is not the greatest. The Cafe has it's good and bad days. Some days the food is really good, and some days the food is nasty. But that's when you have the opportunity to spend your flex dollars and go to one of the restaurants on campus such as; McAllisters, Chick Fil A, Pizza Hut, or Blimpie. You could also visit one of the restaurants close to campus or order from the many places that deliver.

There are also many times you can go to places to get help from a tutor.

    The campus is pretty much safe. Personally I will advice people not to walk by themselves at night but that is in any environment.

    Bang for the buck

    Although A & T is a HBCU there are people from everywhere that come here. I've met people from France, Canada, and Africa that have left their original country to come here.

    What to do for fun

    There are numerous activities to join on campus such as intramural football, soccer, and also modeling and dancing. In order to really enjoy your time you should really look at wide variety of activities. There are also many things to do in downtown Greensboro which is a bus ride or 15 minute walk away.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is good for the most part. The dinning hall closes at 8:30 p.m. which I believe is too early, but other than that everything is pretty much delicious.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are generally clean and some have a community bathrooms which I don't prefer. The resident halls offer study hall, and tutoring to assist students in classes.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are somewhat challenging but if you are dedicated to your education and excellence the work will become relatively easy.

    Tips for prospective students

    I encourage prospective students to apply early to be eligible for full tuition scholarships. I also encourage students to come to the University's open house session to get a better feel for the school rather than making a judgement off of rumors.

    Campus Safety

    NCAT has its own police. They are very involved and aware of what is going on. They do well with protecting the campus.

    Greek Life

    NCAT does have Greek life on campus. They are big organizations that play a big role on campus. They are very involved with current activities on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    NCAT is known for their amazing band, that's something to look into. They have a wide variety if clubs and activities to link up to. Most of them are to empower leaders.

    Great for these types of students

    The school is an HBCU and known for agriculture and technology. I would suggest this school to students with a focus or those three things. The campus is big and has an rural feeling so that's also an attraction for students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The students like to go around shouting the A&T Aggie Pride to each other around campus. When there are gathers at school its known to start off with the chant. Its an old cherish tradition.

    Bang for the buck

    The price around campus is reasonable. Its what's to be expected at any other college. Of course the food is comes with the food plan, but the bookstore offers good prices.

    What to do for fun

    There are various things to do for fun such as attend the football games during the first semester. There are also various parties thrown by the school occasionally. Another thing you can do is join a club that you may be interested in.

    Food and Dining

    The food court is also neat and clean. Although it is always busy, there are many foods offered. Its a nice place to relax and meet up with your friends after class.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is amazing! They have both co-ed and separate dorms. They dorms are kept neat and clean as well as the campus.

    Academic Rigor

    NCAT is of course known for their agriculture and technology department. The teachers are patient and willing to help. They have a great ROTC department.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you have your grades together. Visiting the campus before applying is a must! It is a great public HBCU, but very pricey.

    Campus Safety

    In my opinion the campus is pretty safe. However it can get hectic when there are big events on campus such as Homecoming.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a vast amount of clubs and activites to join around campus. You have no excuse not to be a part of something =].

    Great for these types of students

    -If you are able to stay focused and know how to manage your time wisely (studying vs. partying), then I believe this is a good school for you. -If you are one who really needs individual help from your professor outside of class time to ask questions and further understand the material, then I believe this is a great school for you. -If you plan on majoring in Science, Math, Engineering, or Technology, then I believe that this is a good school for you. I also hear that the Nursing program is pretty good.

    Bang for the buck

    If you haven't heard we are known for our homecomings, otherwise known as GHOE (Greatest Homecoming on Earth). We have concerts, a step show, a comedy show, and etc. Also there are plenty of parties going on at this time, so I'm sure you won't have a hard time finding one.

    What to do for fun

    Well if you are a student of A&T and don't have a car you have unlimited access to the Higher Education Area Transit (HEAT Bus) and city bus which will pretty much take you anywhere around Greensboro. I enjoy going downtown and shopping at the boutiques and relaxing at the coffee shops. For those who are 21+, Spring Garden Street has some really laid back bars and places where you can go and listen to up-and-coming bands as well as local bands. There's even a poetry bar out there that I hear is really nice.

    Food and Dining

    I wasn't a huge fan of the cafe, however, I heard they are implementing a more healthy eating regiment, which is always good. They generally had a good amount of selections however it's nothing like a good homecooked meal. If you have flex dollars I would definitely take advantage of the fast food places offered on campus (Blimpie, Starbucks, Chik-fil-a, Pizza Hut, etc.)

    Dorm Life

    I feel as though the rules in the dorms are too stringent, especially for the single-sex dorms. They are real particular about you signing your guests in and out and having all guests out by midnight. They also are real paticular about room checks. It's been a little while since I stayed on campus but I believe they did room checks once or twice a semester to make sure that your room is clean, you don't have any illegal drugs, or other prohibited items in the room. The community bathrooms and laundry rooms can be irritating.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm an engineering major therefore I can only speak on behalf engineering disciplines. The work can be moderately challenging to very challenging. I would definitely advise making friends and forming study groups in your classes ASAP. Also taking advantage of your professor's office hours and extra help from the supplemental instructors is VERY IMPORTANT. Not only do you want to make sure that you understand all of the material, but you also want to show your professors that you take your education seriously.

    Tips for prospective students

    -Form study groups ASAP. -Form personal relationships with your instructors. -Try to participate in a study abroad program your second semester of freshman year are sometime during your sophomore year. -Utilize your professor's office hours. -Make your schedule quickly. -Stay focused and prioritize. You're not going to be able to go to every party or event. -Do the best you can your Freshman year; it only gets harder. -Join organizations and clubs. -Have fun and enjoy yourself.

    In three sentences

    Overall North Carolina A&T is a good school. However, it is a little more challenging than some may think. If you are one who is looking for diversity in a school then this probably isn't the place for you, unless you plan on majoring in an engineering discipline.

    The campus is on lock after a certain time each night , I believe around 9 pm. There are police checking student IDs and all gates lock at this time. It tends to get a bit hectic during Homecoming, but everything is played out safely.

    Greek Life

    There are way too many Greeks on campus, but it can be very exciting. Get to know the Greeks they can be very helpful and are known for giving back. Take the time to evaluate what you see and determine whether it is up your alley.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are great groups, such as band (golden delight), cool mist, basketball team, football team, tennis, golf, baseball, track, couture modeling troupe, verge modeling troupe, sociology academic study group, student gov. etc.

    Great for these types of students

    NC A&T is filled with preppy hyped up students that strive for excellence. There are many different types of people but we all have one thing in common , OUR PRIDE. Many people don't understand but as a school its great to work together to get the job done.

    Bang for the buck

    North Carolina Agriculture and Technical is one the best HBCUs in the state and country. We are top notch with everything we do and we have many successful graduated students to prove it.

    What to do for fun

    Band Band Band is all i do , and it keeps me entertained. If you're not involved in band there is plenty other options, such as student gov. , modeling troops, dance teams, academic groups. You'll never be bored on this campus trust me, there is always something to be apart of.

    Food and Dining

    The food is filled with fiber, but keeps me full. The cafe has a variety of options and very so often has specials. Most recently we had crab leg Sunday.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life in suites are decent, there is barely fire alarms and no rodents. I am not sure about the south side of campus, it is more of the traditional side. The only bad thing about that side, that I've heard, is their maybe a couple of ants.

    Academic Rigor

    For the most part pretty much everything is made difficult in my eyes. Also the difficulty level is dependent on your major.Also it is as hard as you make it , you are challenge but not burdened down with impossibilities.

    Tips for prospective students

    Before coming to NC A&T, evaluate you interests and make sure this is the best fit; If you love a family like atmosphere, this is the place for you. Although it is filled with fun and pride be aware of why you are attending college. Do not allow extra activities or unimportant things affect the way you work in the classroom;Always have your eye on the prize and stay in competition with your best.

    In three sentences

    If I had to rate NC A&T, I would give it a 9 out of 10. A&T is place filled with resources and opportunities and student who are filled with pride and the ambition to learn. I have learned so much since I have been here and realized how much education is important.

    Campus Safety

    Safety was never really an issue. Someone is always there to help if needed.

    Greek Life

    Standard HBCU greek organizations.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is plenty to do in the town of Greensboro. Most of the fun activities require vehicle travel.

    Bang for the buck

    In state tuition is comparable to universities of the same caliber. Out of state tuition is nearly double, and all of the potential scholarships and grants barely dent tuition costs in the long term. Be prepared for several loans and cosigners, and a significant amount of time to repay post graduation. Most of the programs feel outdated, and the feeling only deepens the further one gets into one's major.

    What to do for fun

    There are about five universities in the area. Fun will not be hard to come by in the least.

    Food and Dining

    Do not be fooled by the orientation food and that of the first week of school. Those types of foods will quickly disappear, and one may be left eating ramen and other quick disposable meals as opposed to the cafeteria food. Meal times often conflict with student schedules, and fast food/take-out/delivery options add up to be expensive and unhealthy. If at all possible, exchange student housing and meal plans for an apartment and budgeted grocery shopping. The cafeteria will force the adult to come out of you, one way or the other.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms have been renovated, but they still have a cramped feeling. Weather can certainly affect the older dorms, and summer/winter can be a very painful season for those residents. More renovations have taken place since my departure, and all appears to look nice from the exterior at least. The RA program can provide a hit or miss experience, depending on the type of RA you get. If at all possible, exchange student housing costs for a low cost apartment near campus.

    Academic Rigor

    With extreme perseverance one can overcome any school related challenge. This school is not easy or hard, but right in between. One may find a few courses that must be self taught, as is the nature of some of those studies. Much of the coursework is not relevant to one's major, and a breeze to get through regardless.

    Tips for prospective students

    Out of state students can expect a significantly higher tuition, even from neighboring states. If you did not come from a specialty high school, do thorough research before considering any of the engineering programs here. Be prepared to take on half of a course load that may be irrelevant to your major.

    In three sentences

    This is a fun school. It would seem to be a good choice for those seeking degrees related to English, nursing, or business. I would not recommend the engineering program at all.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    To date, I haven't experienced any unusual traditions or locations. Classes, track and mandatorystudy hall hours keep me pretty busy.

    Bang for the buck

    You're learning from the best in your industry so make the most of it. Almost all of the professors have a doctorate degree. Every instructor and staff member is committed to your success. Aggie pride is real and they make you feel like they're invested in you and your goals.

    What to do for fun

    Any and everything is permitted so long as it doesn't violate any laws or campus rules. Stay away from drugs, alcohol and sex. You have your whole life ahead of you. You've come to learn and gain some work experience so take advantage of this time at school and do as many internships as you can.

    Food and Dining

    I still miss home cooking but you'll survive. You'll find something that you like and you'll adapt if you're very picky.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are small and space is limited. Remember that it serves a purpose and you'll be so busy and getting involved with campus life that you'll realize that it serves its purpose which is to sleep, shower and change.

    Academic Rigor

    Attend your classes and establish a rapport with your professors. It's important to keep up with your assignments. It's not like high school; it's challenging and it requires your time and effort.

    Tips for prospective students

    Embrace change and know that things will work out if you only apply yourself and do you very best.

    I love the Aggie Pride I'm experienced; North Carolina A & T State University represents lifelong learning. This is where I have learned independence and learned new things about myself. This is where I've begun to meet the friends I'll have forever.

    The school pride is infectious here. Homecoming has a huge turnout every year with many great artists and activities to do.

    Bang for the buck

    A&T is the cheapest in the NC system but you get what you pay for. Unclean classrooms, no working clocks, no working projectors.

    Food and Dining

    I have not eaten on campus

    Dorm Life

    I do not live on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are relatively easy as long as you keep up with your homework and do all of the assignments. Almost every class I have taken I have been allowed to bring a cheat sheet to every exam.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get to know both your professor and the students around you and sit near the front.

    In three sentences

    The teachers here are excellent and so far have enjoyed all of my classes. The student body is nice and are very willing to get to know you and study together from day one. The school itself needs some help prioritizing, nearly every classroom does not have a working clock or projector.

    Food and Dining

    The food is editable and pretty much repeats ever so often.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is quiet, so nobody will truly disturb you from your studies.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major determines the work load as you advance trough college. Art students have easier material, but have to commit a lot of time and thought into their projects. While Engineering and Science students have to focus on mathematics, chemistry, physics, which deal with a lot of mental and problem solving skills.

    In three sentences

    From my two year experiences at A&T University, I can say I've meet some great people who has taught me a lot. From Professors to friends I've learned a wide variety of information from how to tuck on a longboard to how to calculating even the toughest of calculus problems. I still got a lot left to learn and I know I'll learn everything at A&T University because of the great professors and peers I will meet.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is a major part A&T. I strongly encourage getting involved. It helps you meet new people and provides you with tools to better yourself and your community.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something to do at A&T. If you're bored, it's because you're trying to be bored. There are school events going on all the time. Go to them!

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining is okay, but it definitely could be better. It's great when you're really hungry though.

    Dorm Life

    I recommend staying on campus for at least a year because it forces you to meet new people. I have really enjoyed dorm life, but make sure you apply for housing early so you don't stuck get in a old dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor depends on your major, but the accounting curriculum is extremely rigorous.

    Tips for prospective students

    Put yourself out there. Don't be afraid to approach recruiters and tell them about the good work that you're doing at the school. Also, be open to meeting new people. You will gain some of your lifelong friends in college so don't miss out on any opportunities to meet new people.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina A&T is a great school for business, engineering, and agriculture. I am an accounting student and I know from personal experience that the possibilities are endless within the School of Business and Economics. If you work hard at A&T, there is no reason why you can't be successful.

    Campus Safety

    The Campus Police Department is open 24 hours and its department is located on campus. Security is always on location (and yes, they are really sticklers for the rules).

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The Holland Bowl is definitely a nice place to be during the Fall and Spring! It's located near Williams Dining Hall. It's generally the place where the Organization Fairs and Outside moving screenings are held. Of course, GHOE (Greatest Homecoming On Earth)!

    What to do for fun

    Everything! A&T provides different activities throughout the academic year and during the summer. Including: FREE New Movie Screening at the movie theater, Discounted or Free admission to Wet & Wild- Emerald Pointe (the largest water park in the Carolinas), Paint-Balling teams, Intramural Sports, Carnivals (yes, including the mechanical bull), Gym Jams, Organization Fairs, Road Trips to the largest and most competitive football games. A&T also provides transportation to these off campus events (even some out of state events), it's a win-win!

    Food and Dining

    There are a plethora of different dining options on campus, including Pizza Hut, McAllisters, Chic-fil-A, Blimpies, Starbucks, Aggie Wing Truck and so many more. Williams Dining Hall is nice in structure and very sanitary. A&T also hosts monthly meetings where students can provide their opinions about the food and services (during this meeting they also provide a free 3 course meal).

    Dorm Life

    A&T provides a plethora of events during the week that are located in the residence halls which certainly promotes the Aggie family environment. Although the residence halls are nice in structure, Residence Life does not tolerate any flexibility with the rules (so basically, be aware of visitation hours).

    Academic Rigor

    If you're willing to be diligent, you'll definitely succeed. As confirmed by other students, the first year will be the easiest and lab courses (biology, chemistry, etc.) may be more difficult. As long as you remain focused and dedicated to your academics you will be able to enjoy the latter of your time at A&T. Time management will benefit you.

    Tips for prospective students

    North Carolina A & T State University has about 10,991 students, it's definitely a perfect fit for students who want to be more than a number. It's large enough to join different organizations but small enough to converse with your professors.

    In three sentences

    North Carolina A&T certainly provides the Home away from Home environment. The professors and the students promote overall success, from academics to general well-being. I must say, A&T has everything you will need to succeed as you matriculate through college (that's coming from a senior!).
