    I love it here because State offers many opportunities and resources. They have organizations on campus that will meet any of your interests and they constantly have employers come to the university to give students helpful tips on job searching. I know for the College of Management they have workshops everyday put on by employers. I also enjoy how State is constantly trying to improve. They never stop expanding and we are already the largest university in North Carolina.
