  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    There are many campus dining opportunities. I know they have a Chick-Fil-A, which is a gift in and of itself. I know there is an Insomnia Cookies nearby, which is a personal godsend as well.

    Downtown Raleigh has so many places to eat and the campus has really good options for anything you're feeling, be it coffee, pizza, burritos, or countless other options. There are also many healthy options on campus and in Raleigh.

    With the Everyday Meal Plan you get unlimited dining hall swipes and 12 new credits to be used at places like Chick Fil A and Los Lobos. It is really hard to run out of meal swipes in a week.

    The food is better than I initially thought it would be. They change out the menus a lot, so you don't get tired of the same food each week. That is nice considering in the middle of the semester everything starts feeling the same. Case is for sure the best dining hall on campus, don't be fooled.

    Meal plans are amazing- and the dining halls offer a large selection of foods. Use your meal plan often- it will save you money.

    Eating healthy on a college campus is always going to be a challenge. NC State lets students use meal swipes at places such as Los Lobos, Jason's Deli, and Red Sky Pizza. Try to keep your health in mind and go to the dining halls as much as possible because they tend to offer healthier alternatives to the fast food in the student union. You can also use meal swipes for things such as coffee at Port City Java, or Howling Cow ice cream.

    There are many societies for many different kinds of people. I am not apart of any, however a lot of my friends really enjoy it and have really close friends because of it. There are plenty for service or professional societies and many for social reasons.

    Greek life seems to be pretty popular here at NC State but not the only focus of extra curricular activities. I would recommend this option to anyone who has time to dedicate to an organization every week and is willing to pay a fee to join. Greek organizations are life long commitments and can pay off later in life.

    State isn't a primarily Greek school, though we do have an affluent and positive Greek system. Greek Court is located just across Western Boulevard, with buses and crosswalks to get to main campus. Sororities and fraternities are excellent ways to get involved and meet a lot of new people at once. If you're interested, absolutely consider rushing.

    We have lots of fraternities and sororities to join, including social, honors, and service groups. Just like Greek life at other places, people spend a lot of time with their fraternities/sororities and tend to make lifelong friends there. We also have a Greek row where people can live in the houses associated with their group.

    I am not apart of Greek Life on campus, but I know a lot of people who are. There are tons of sororities and fraternities, and it seems like almost every girl as a Great Women Go Greek button. It seems very fun and rewarding. If you're into that sort of thing, NCSU has it.

    Greek life at NC State is very big on campus. There are many frats and sororities to join and there are also many parties thrown by these organizations.

    Greek life plays a large part in the college experience of those who endeavor to be a part of it. It is a unique experience and a special bond of friendship that lasts a lifetime.

    Greek life is very prominent when tailgating at football games, but never really anytime else. The Greeks are all very welcoming and open to all types of people and they do do good things around our community.

    Greek Life is not as prominent at NCSU, but there are still plenty of frat parties to attend. NCSU is not very preppy and contains a nice mix of students.
