  • North Carolina State University

    North Carolina State University

    Leadership in education as well as research is how North Carolina State wants to be known. The largest university in North Carolina has historically put out the best agriculture, engineering, design and textiles graduates, but now offers a great variety of over 100 bachelor's degrees.

    An Adventurer's Spirit

    North Carolina State is located in Raleigh, North Carolina, the state's capital, a city with excellent infrastructure and servicing. The city itself is named after Sir Walter Raleigh, and English adventurer. It retains the adventurous spirit of its namesake even today, with the prime part of the city's mission being innovation. Sustainability, environmental initiatives, growth and diversity are the focuses of the city government.

    Raleigh Neighborhoods for NCSU Students

    If you want to live close to school, Aurora is the best neighborhood to choose. NCSU is slightly west of the city itself, and the epicenter of the West Raleigh neighborhood is the junction of Hillsborough Street and Oberlin Road - the former creates the northern border of NCSU, so school is right in the middle of West Raleigh action.

    If you are able to travel, North Raleigh offers the greatest diversity of housing and apartments for rent, with more of a suburban feel. Old Raleigh has plenty of beautiful buildings, historic areas as well as cultural activities - however apartment rentals in this central area can be expensive.

    Much of the lower priced housing around NCSU is in the small area to the northeast of the university. $450 to $650 a month will get you a peaceful, if smaller place. There are also good apartment options quite close to school, but these are in high demand!

    Refreshment in Raleigh

    Wander a little way up Hillsborough Street to find plenty of places for an amber ale or heady red, as well as gigs like Raleigh Little Theatre to enjoy the effects!

    Right around the corner from your university, and hopefully not far from your student housing, is Snooker's Sports Pub, an underground pool hall (literally) with a focus on great tables. The Brewery is just a little further away, where you can sip on a pink champagne or malty brew and listen to a good variety of music genres in a place with great acoustics.

    There is a huge number of restaurants in Raleigh, but the one you'll find yourself 'accidentally' leaving your sandwiches at home for is the close-by Neomonde Bakery and Deli, with Greek, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean lunches as well as sandwiches and bakery fare. Sushi Tune is not far away from NCSU either, and you can get traditional Southern fare at Bojangles Famous Chicken and Biscuits.
