  • I am a past student here

    Coming from a bigger city, Durham is just okay. The campus itself was only eventful during Homecoming. The weekends will be dead and unless you find your group of friends, you will be bored here quite often. This school just wasn't for me, aside from the majority African-American population, which I did like.

    I LOVE college, but I LOVE NCCU so much more. Besides being a beautiful campus, the staff and students are great and very welcoming. Central was not my first pick but I'm very glad that I decided to attend.

    When I first got to North Carolina Central I was very, very nervous, because I was not sure what to expect. So far with one year, and a semester under my belt I have since over enjoyed my stay at Central. As a current member of the Screaming Eagles Organization on campus my sophomore year has been 10 times better than my freshman year. I recommend anyone to choose North Carolina Central University to get the full experience of attending a Historically Black College/University (HBCU)

    Like most people say College is what you make it. I personally don't like to go to parties, but if that's your scene then there are parties almost every week and weekend. If you're like me, there's still other things to do on campus like play cards, pool, and just hanging out in the multipurpose rooms, along with a lot of programs about different topics.

    I am very conservative and I don't really associate with anyone because I am having some bad experiences. Overall I enjoy the college life.
