North Carolina A&T State University Reviews
Currently, I am thoroughly enjoying my time as a student at North Carolina A&T State University. A few of the many things I enjoy are the opportunities to have a semi-formal relationship with my professors due to smaller class sizes, the ability to learn amongst a diverse student body, and finally the friendliness of the school staff and faculty. One thing I would change would be the food options available on campus. While the food is quite tasty, we are in need of additional healthy food options!
North Carolina A&T was not my first choice, but I am delighted I chose this school. I have networked with so many individuals and made a lot of life-long friendships. I didn't, however, feel challenged until my junior year of college which is unfortunate, but that may be different with some people. Some teachers really took interests in helping students while others didn't. With academics and professors, I feel could be better along with the food options as well. However, all around NCAT is a good school and it was a great choice!
My overall experiences here at the T, has been great. I can here on a limb, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to come to an HBCU. But I can say it’s one of the best decisions I've ever made. A&T makes you feel at home, the students and staff are always so warm and the Aggie pride is a beautiful thing. One thing I love about being an undergrad at the T is the people, the experience of being a black student at an HBCU. there’s nothing like our homecoming, or our spring fest events, our football games! Alumni from all over come back to celebrate that Aggie pride that’s so widely known.
