I love the diverse community that make up the student body on campus! There are so many people from different towns, states, and even countries! On top of this, each person sports a myriad of interests, classes, and work experience. Students are very ambitious at this campus, which allows you to surround yourself with people who strive to be the very best at whatever they apply themselves to. Ultimately this pushes you to challenge what you know, defend what you believe in, and in the end, make you a better person.
Review North Carolina Central University
I love that my university upholds truth and service and also educational excellence. My experience here has had its ups and downs, that's with any school, however I have always had access to resources to help me through my day to day!
While I am currently a student at NCCU, I honestly wish I had chosen another college. They were very inexpensive and the saying goes "you get what you pay for" and I do. I get no assistance with registering for classes, no assistance with financial aid matters, and no other help when needed by an advisor or other staff member. I finally received help from one person in the department for my major and then s he transfers to different department. To day I was upset would be an understatement. The website is complicated and not at all user friendly. All the instructors can set up blackboard differently and that gets rather confusing as you look for new assignments and due dates.
