North Carolina State (5-0)

  • Their two sacks allowed lead the ACC and are second in the nation.
  • Their OL has paved and protected their way to at least 24 first downs in all 5 games this season, which also stands alone as the most such games in the ACC this season.
  • Lead the country in third down conversion percentage (60.9%).
  • What the committee is saying: “This unit has improved each week. Consistency, teamwork, and finishing make them the best OL unit in the ACC. Bradbury is leading a unit that knows they must set the tone on the ground to balance a dangerous passing attack. 7 min in 2Q of BC game is perfect example of what they are doing best in stretch run game.”

Money Magazine Ranks NC State as the 40th Best College for the Money

Published

on

Recently Money Magazine ranked the best colleges in America for the money heading into the 2019-20 school year, public and private, and NC State is ranked 40th. Behind Duke, they are the ranked as the 2nd best school in North Carolina, and the #1 Public School.

Going to college shouldn’t mean a lifetime of debt. To find the schools that successfully combine quality and affordability, MONEY weighed more than 19,000 data points, including tuition fees, family borrowing, and career earnings. Explore our list, then build your own. (Money)

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)
