A major university - with some eye catching and interesting features

The "campus" is a bit spread out - with North, Central, South and Centennial portions touching each other and the West (mostly Veterinary Medicine) a mile away - yep, to the West... read more

The "campus" is a bit spread out - with North, Central, South and Centennial portions touching each other and the West (mostly Veterinary Medicine) a mile away - yep, to the West. The North campus is the older portion, so for university history that's the place to wander - be sure to visit the DH Hill Library which has been... More

My wife surprised me again with a concert to see Keith Sweat to make up for the play we had to leave because of a medical emergency involving our goddaughter. The venue is nice and not a bad seat in the house. The only complaint that I have about the venue is that there isn't enough leg room. I'm 5'10"... More

I have a feeling NC State is at its most beautiful in autumn. Boy, do all those oaks really give a show! Parking was easy. All the staff and students were helpful and friendly. We had a great time just meandering around and shopping in the bookstore.

Our daughter attended and as parents we could not have been happier in her choice. She has made lots of friends and scholastically did very well!

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, but they did not. Instead they left police and paramedics wasting time at a football game when they could have been saving lives. While the campus is... More

Two of my children attended and received degrees from this University. There are many excellent programs and majors to choose. Alumni go far and wide and are great about networking and trying to help each other with job opportunities after graduation. Once a Wolfpacker, always a Wolfpacker!

Took my daughter on a college visit. Great school but very congested. My daughter was more interested in a smaller university.

New student center is very different from the old. Walkways lead around the campus, there are wolf statues scattered around. Fun for the little ones to find. Parking is always a problem, might be better off parking across Hillsborough Street in one of the restaurant parking areas and walking over. Be sure to buy something from whomevers' lot you park...
