What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
NC State is a large school with a small school feel. You can walk around campus and always see a familiar face. There are always new people to meet as well.

NC State is a great place to start your college education. A university that offers many subjects; and if you're undecided, there are many programs that will help you make your decision. Recommended for any engineer majors.
