Here’s what they had to say about North Carolina State University:
North Carolina State University is a school with deep-rooted tradition and local pride. In fact, many current students have parents and grandparents who are NC State alumni. Probably best known for its agricultural science program, as well as its science research majors, NC State offers its 34,000 students some 300 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Take your pick from animal science, extension education, forest management, meteorology, poultry science, textile engineering, and more. With its location in Raleigh, there’s always plenty to do, both on campus and off. Hundreds of student clubs are constantly recruiting on the Brickyard, State’s central quad, and Greek parties run late into the night. But nothing brings the community together as much as cheering for NC State’s Division I sports teams, embroiled in a century-old rivalry with nearby UNC. Students and professors go all out, dressing in red, roasting pigs at tailgating sessions, and pitching tents in parking lots before games. When it’s time to study, the Learning Commons offers a quiet escape. Undergrads say that professors are attentive and almost always available. The university has a solid 79% graduation rate, which is slightly higher than would be expected based on the academic preparation and economic background of NC State Raleigh’s students, according to MONEY’s calculations. In their first three years after graduating, alumni tend to earn an average salary of $55,800, according to PayScale. (Money)
