  • We visited the campus during Hurricane Matthew for a football game. The organizers of the campus and team could have and should have moved the game to the following Sunday given the cirucumstances, bu...  more »
  • I studied at the University for a year and I have nothing to complain about! Huge campus, great structures, incredible teachers and still counts on the Centennial Campus of engineering and technology. I loved taking classes there and met the great Centennial library.. with robot to pick up the books, 3D printer, and more!

  • Amazing school! I lived in Wolf Village the rooms are small but overall not so bad. The school has wonderful resources all around. Plenty of opportunities to get involved not only on campus but in the surrounding community. Can't beat buses that are FREE to the public. That's a cool way for the school to give to the community. One of my most favorite places would be the library. The library there is way different than the traditional library where the main concern is whether you have food in your purse or not and the librarian seems to hate life. At this library you're actually allowed to eat because you're a grown up that can handle food. Everyone I've ever met working on the library was beyond helpful and amazingly nice. I won't even get started on how the library is set up 😍😍. Anyway, I could go on and on about the school but you get it. OK ONE MORE THING... I loved being able to go to the final aid office and acutely hey help in a timely and non-stressful manner. That's very important. Also the health center is an amazing resource ( ok that was 2 more things).
  • I was in the school psychology doctoral program from 2014-2015. A professor in the program sexually assaulted me twice. When I began struggling due to the assaults, rather than supporting me and reporting him, the staff was incredibly abusive to me and pushed me out of the program. The students followed their example and were just as nasty to me. I believe he has victimized at least one other student because she was warning female students not to go to the program in the 2013 interviews. I also know of at least 5 other students who were falsely told they were psychotic when they reported their rape to the NC State counseling center to hide the rate of rapes on campus....and this is just what I found from contacting a small portion of people from the psychology department. Do not go to this school. ESPECIALLY the psychology department. This school left me so psychologically and financially scarred that I still struggle every day from the impact of choosing North Carolina State Unversity for graduate school. I cannot emphasize enough: do not go here.
  • Best education. I went here for Textiles, landed a job before I graduated and made more than any of my other friends with other majors. The professors are world class and would do anything to help you. Changed my life and helped make me the successful person I am today. Only regret is I didn't stay longer.
  • I feel really disappointed and disrespected by your school’s admission office especially on Jenkins’ Professional evening MBA program. It took me almost 5 months to prepare and apply to this program, and yes, I took an interview on Jun 9th, then got a rejection letter by June 16th. It took literally 4 days for the admission office to review my 5 months application and then rejected me with nonsense of reasons, and online it says it normally takes 30 days after the interview. What a joke! And I think now I got it, maybe because I’m Asian, to be Political right, you only need one Asian in your class and you might already have one. Or maybe you ready had a finalized list for your next enroll students, and the rest students are just going through the process and another way of profit??? Disgusting! I will never apply NCSU any programs again and I will tell all my friends and colleagues of this ridiculous “4 days MBA decision”. This is a school full of conspiracies. You should be ashamed. I am not angry, but feel pity of your school. No wonder Jenkins never go over 50 on MBA rankings. You will never do.
  • Biggest and best university in the state of NC. My engineering degree has been more valuable than I could have ever imagined. Close to Raleigh, so within a walk or short drive to so many amenities. Go Wolfpack!
