Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    There are a TON of food options all over campus. State has three buffet-style dining halls (Fountain, Case, and Clark), three food court-style food areas (Talley, the Oval, and the Atrium), among a handfull of coffee shops and convenient stores scattered across campus. There are always options for vegetarians and people who are gluten/lactose intolerant. There are always new choices so you never get tired of the same things.

    It's located in Raleigh, so there are plenty of options. The campus is very compact so you won't have to go far to find a bite to eat.

    There is a lot of dining options on campus, and it is all pretty good and getting better, but it is college dining, so you will sometimes feel the need to go off campus or go home for a good home-cooked meal. Since there is so much of it, it is very convenient, and the meal plans are great!

    The dining hall has plenty of variety. Whatever you have in mind is likely in their dining hall. Of course, you may have a different taste in food. Luckily, because NCSU is located in the heart of the state capital (Raleigh), there are plenty of restaurants in the surrounding areas.

    The food is healthy and wonderful. Although it does get old eating it everyday.

    There a lot of dining options here. There are 2 dining halls and I think 3 buildings that house restaurants and stores. While there is a large selection, most of the food isn't that good. It's commonly known that most of the dining hall food goes right through you and the food served at the restaurants isn't that much better. To be honest, even with all the options, eating on campus can get kind of boring. I usually eat most of my meals off campus or I make my food myself. I recommend getting the cheapest meal plan.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    State isn't a primarily Greek school, though we do have an affluent and positive Greek system. Greek Court is located just across Western Boulevard, with buses and crosswalks to get to main campus. Sororities and fraternities are excellent ways to get involved and meet a lot of new people at once. If you're interested, absolutely consider rushing.

    We have lots of fraternities and sororities to join, including social, honors, and service groups. Just like Greek life at other places, people spend a lot of time with their fraternities/sororities and tend to make lifelong friends there. We also have a Greek row where people can live in the houses associated with their group.

    I am not apart of Greek Life on campus, but I know a lot of people who are. There are tons of sororities and fraternities, and it seems like almost every girl as a Great Women Go Greek button. It seems very fun and rewarding. If you're into that sort of thing, NCSU has it.

    Greek life at NC State is very big on campus. There are many frats and sororities to join and there are also many parties thrown by these organizations.

    Greek life plays a large part in the college experience of those who endeavor to be a part of it. It is a unique experience and a special bond of friendship that lasts a lifetime.

    Greek life is very prominent when tailgating at football games, but never really anytime else. The Greeks are all very welcoming and open to all types of people and they do do good things around our community.

    Greek Life is not as prominent at NCSU, but there are still plenty of frat parties to attend. NCSU is not very preppy and contains a nice mix of students.

    I am not involved in Greek Life, but some of my friends are and they tell it is great. They really enjoy the diversity of fraternities and sororities here, and there is a place for every one interested in Greek Life. From leadership to engineering, there are plenty of options for any student to get involved in Greek Life. Go Greek!
