What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
Don't be afraid to go to office hours. Take advantage of the free tutoring services on campus.
Michaela from Oak Ridge, NC
Get to know others in your classes. If they happen to have the same major as you, great! If not you'll at least have someone to help you or collaborate with in that particular class. Be sure to get paperwork and such done as ahead of time as possible. Be sure to study the notes you just took the same day in order to be sure you understand the concepts. It is also a good idea to read ahead in the textbook if possible.

I advice you to come in the NC State prepared to study and work your butt off. NC State is very fun, but it is also challenging, especially the science and math classes.
Joseph from Concord, NC
A tip for prospective students would be to GET INVOLVED! This university is nothing without the students who help to make it better every day. One of the greatest assets of NC State is the administration's understanding that if it wasn't for the students, they would be out of the job. So administrations and staff members are well apt to changing the rules and benefiting students, however the only way that happens is if the students are active, professional, and involved!
Riley Carl from Clayton, NC
If you're looking to get into State try hard to work on your math and sciences. The school offers a lot and can even offer you a job coming in (I am currently one of the lifeguards on campus). Try and get into a dorm if you can as it will help you find people to study with as well as take a break with when you need one.
Nicholas from Clayton, NC
Apply as early as possible as it improves your chances of getting in. Visit departments to see where you can fit in.
Daniel from Marvin, NC
The biggest advice I can give is don't be afraid to speak up in class. Whether its talking to the professor or to other classmates, making connections will help you! The classes in which I didn't talk to anyone were definitely my hardest. Your classmates will be the most helpful people when it comes to studying, you will learn so much from them and you always have them to help you. Professors and TAs are also extremely helpful. Don't be afraid to use your resources when you are having trouble...that's what they are there for!
Jennifer from Staten Island, NY
Go to the SI sessions. If you are having trouble in a class, especially a class designed to weed undergraduates out, get help. Go talk to the teacher, they will bend over backwards to help you out.
Ethan from Green Mtn., NC
Get close with your professors or department heads within your major; high school tells you they're scary and very strict, but that's totally not the case for the vast majority of them. They want you to succeed, and will appreciate your extra effort!
Clare from Conyers, GA
I would advise that you keep your high school GPA as high as possible. Be sure to have community service or volunteer hours, as well as academic extracurricular activities. All of these combined make for a competitive application.

I would also advise any prospective student to come take a campus tour to see if NC State seems like a good fit in person.
