My overall experience at North Carolina A&T State University has been amazing. I've met so many new faces on campus and my academic career there is astounding. Staff at A&T make it a mission for all students to be successful in school and life after graduating. Since I first walked on the campus, the feeling of being welcomed and family has never left. The school spirit is something I've never seen before! Aggie staff, students, and alumni love this school and I see why. The love I have for my school is so deep, I will always speak highly of this university. The social events for students have helped me get out of my comfort zone as well. The only things I would change on campus is that the freshman dorms could be renovated, since they are some of the oldest buildings on campus. A&T is an amazing school that I would recommend any high school senior or transfer student to apply for. It's nothing like being an Aggie!

I absolutely love my school. The people are great and so are the opportunities for the students. One of my main worries are the out-of-date classrooms. They are dingy, hot, have no new technology, and have wooden desks. They have recently built one new academic building and it is absolutely beautiful. I really wish all of the buildings looked like the in and outside of the new one. My school has been around since 1891, and a lot of it has not been updated since.Other than that, everything else is great!
In 2016 I had to make a decision on where I wanted to continue my education. North Carolina A&T State University was my one and only choice. I had the pleasure of visiting multiple colleges but the only college I was interested in was A&T. The very first time I stepped foot on A&T’s campus I felt as if I was already attending. I went to visit A&T another two times before applying and went on days where they were not hosting a tour! This showed me the true feel of the campus and amazingly enough I had the same feeling.! North Carolina A&T was the only school I applied to. Yes I took a chance, but I was determined to officially become an Aggie. I felt as if A&T was the perfect school for me to make new friends and step out of my comfort zone. And I did just that! All 4 years at A&T, I was apart of several honors clubs & a club called livewire the pep squad. Livewire attends sporting games such as football & basketball. A&T helped me remove my shyness and be apart of something great.
