    As a woman of color at a predominantly white institution I feel safe here. No professor is the same and they each have their own rules that they go by (even though they're not supposed to) some professors don't take attendance at all and some professors drop your final grade an entire letter each day you miss so you really just have to be on the lookout. I like it, not love it. Food choices are good, not amazing. Parking situation suuucks and everyone would say that. There are ENDLESS clubs. Race relations can be tense sometimes, but maybe that's just because it's such a huge school so there's bound to be a few people who will stupid do stupid things. ...Continue reading

    The food choices are pretty limited, but that is the only problem I've had here. NC State knows how to do both extremely well. The Hunt library has been named one a modern marvel and the future of education. With the slogan Think and Do, the university wants everyone to find their passion and follow their passion with every resource they can give. There are so many opportunities and networking events to get involved with and meet people (both social and career-wise). Plus, campus in the spring and fall is gorgeous. ...Continue reading

    I'm really glad I chose this school. It really has that traditional college environment with tons of opportunities. Even though it's such a big school, there's a real sense of community. The food is straight, especially compared to alot of other schools. It's not much of a party school, in my experience. The College of Textiles is great. ...Continue reading

    Its an adequate school. The teachers were kind and well educated. The people were also friendly and down-to-earth. NC State is always making renovations so they campus stays in great shape. Plenty of food choices and a number of wonderful clubs. Make sure you get plugged in somewhere and start making friends. The learning environment is very involved and there generally are opportunities to do undergrad research. Hard work pays off here. Most professors are helpful and advertise office hours.

    Dr. Chang is a nice guy but terrible professor. He doesn't provide power points and his notes are pointless because it is too simplified.

    This is probably the worst class I've ever taken. He doesn't take attendance at all, but he doesn't tell you when the quizzes are, and you don't get to make them up.

    The lectures are the homework, they're online. ST311 seems to be a flipped classroom, where you complete weekly modules where you watch recorded lectures and answer practice problems.

    Coach Allen may be strict, but she's very nice and caring. If you have a medical issue, simply tell her about it at the beginning and remind her throughout the class so you don't try and do something that could leave any lasting damage.

    Professor Heard is a fairly good lecturer. When I took the class the lectures were recorded and available online and attendance wasn't taken. He can come off as curt and rude sometimes.

    Came from ME having taken fluids last semester, lots of theory with a terrible prof who liked to be cryptic and trick students. This guy was really refreshing in comparison.

    Paul's actually a museum researcher that the university gets to teach a class. He's not the best with lectures - reads them from a paper - but his tests are really reasonable and his essays are all under two pages long. He stresses reading the books, but I watched a movie for one and listened to an audiobook for another. Overall an easy A. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Cooke is one of my favorite professors that I have ever had! The course pack is a great alternative to a textbook. Papers/projects are easy A's but her tests are EXTREMELY tricky (answer choices A-E that are all meant to confuse you). Overall, I would definitely recommend taking her class! Attendance is part of grade. She makes everything very clear from the beginning, and is easy to follow. She's very organized and open with what you need to do to make a good grade. The tests can be tricky, but you should be fine if you follow her study guides. Very nice and helpful with questions! I LOVED her ...Continue reading

Does not respond to email or responds vaguely and does not answer questions. ...Continue reading

    As many others already said, Professor Tran lacks in the English department and is very lecture heavy. The classes are huge and so he doesn't see anyone raising their hand unless they speak up and yell at him. I'm pretty math savvy and had a hard time following along with his lectures and understanding the material. If you are strong in math, and can teach yourself, you'll be okay. Lectures frequently are confusing and he frequently makes errors. Make sure you attend TA office hours. ...Continue reading

    The best way to succeed in this class is to read the textbook early. Folmer is difficult to understand and hardly explains chemistry topics where it makes any sense!! I was advised not to take him, but thought maybe I would just have to work harder. Unless you have a serious chemistry foundation or are a genius, do not take his class. Goes off on random tangents and told my class 20% of us needed to cut our losses and go flip burgers since we didnt do well on the test. His tests are puzzles and even though he curves 20 points, averages were in the 60s. TAKE WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT HIM ...Continue reading

    Alyssa is a grad student who taught a fiction writing class this past semester (spring '17). She is amazing and all you do in class is discuss stories that you read for homework. Then, you write two 10 page stories of your own for the class to critique. That's it for work, and she always let us out early. ...Continue reading

    Mrs. Acker is a great teacher and cares about her students. Responds to questions and emails well. Assignments feel tedious and boring sometimes but the class is really easy. great gpa booster and to meet elective requirements. 9/10 would recommend. it's not crazy fun, but you won't find a better class to meet elective reqs. ...Continue reading

    I found the lectures to be somewhat boring at times, but definitely, don't skip this class. Especially if you know there will be a quiz. There are frequent quizzes in this class but you will get a perfect score for showing up. They are EXTREMELY helpful for the tests. Tests are not hard, but if you don't know the material, you'll struggle. ...Continue reading

    He's sometimes very hard to understand due to his accent, and his handwriting is terrible. He often writes on the whiteboard, so it's difficult to copy it down as it's hard to read. Definitely, knows his stuff, just isn't the best at communication. ...Continue reading

    This by far was the worst class I have taken at NC State. Textbook was required but useless and powerpoints were vague. I went to office hours and emailed him multiple times and never got a response. He makes the subject much harder and confusing than it should have been. Overall, I was very frustrated with the class and my ending grade. He's very unhelpful, rude, and makes the class much harder than it should be. Don't take his class. No partial credit for free responses, if you miss something he doesn't give you any points. ...Continue reading

    I am very interested in Art History, so I am most likely very biased. I had him my freshman year and I love this man. He is so spunky and really cares about what he is teaching. It is really cool to listen to him talk about art, and in turn be interested myself. Make sure you read the readings he assigns, and be prepared for a tough papers. ...Continue reading

    Jason was one of the best teachers I've had at nc state. You can tell he really loves what he does and wants you to love it too. 3 exams, 10 quizzes, 1 paper. If you read, the quizzes are easy. You can easily make an A or B on the exams if you study and go to class and participate. I'm actually gonna miss going to this class at 8:30. ...Continue reading

    it was a lot of work, just don't fall behind! clicker questions and homework assignments help to study for the exam. She gives plenty of material to study before the tests (study guide/old exams)and the textbook is very helpful as well. People who do poorly in chem and tend to blame their teachers for their problems target her pretty often. I actually enjoyed her more than some other students. I put the effort in and read the chapters thoroughly. 4 tests, followed by a cumulative final. My grades, in order: 68, 97, 92, 82 (including curves) and a final of 76. The final replaces your lowest test grade (saved my butt). You can get an A if you try. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Stolee makes software engineering a tolerable course. She explained material pretty well and was very fair about adjustments to projects. The workload of 326 with any professor is going to be brutal, but she's better than previous professors who've taught the class. ...Continue reading

    Attend class! The tests are heavily based on the lectures. His english is not great, but he is still understandable. Take time to look at the notes after class and you will be fine. There are 3 test and a final. The final replaces your lowest test grade and the question are just taken from previous tests, so study them to succeed on the final. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Chang is a nice guy but terrible professor. He doesn't provide power points and his notes are pointless because it is too simplified. His exam questions do not compare to the very few examples provided in class. Would not recommend him to anyone trying to understand the material and get an A in this course. ...Continue reading

    This is probably the worst class I've ever taken. He doesn't take attendance at all, but he doesn't tell you when the quizzes are, and you don't get to make them up. Basically, if you don't come to class, you're screwed. He also gives you no way to bump up your grade if you mess up one test (and the tests are very very tough). ...Continue reading

    The lectures are the homework, they're online. ST311 seems to be a flipped classroom, where you complete weekly modules where you watch recorded lectures and answer practice problems. There's also a weekly online quiz before the class. Leirer is a Ph. D. student, but he really does know what he's talking about. He's very receptive to helping anyone. ...Continue reading

    Coach Allen may be strict, but she's very nice and caring. If you have a medical issue, simply tell her about it at the beginning and remind her throughout the class so you don't try and do something that could leave any lasting damage. This is a hard course, but all PE100s are. Take it pass/fail if you aren't very athletic. ...Continue reading

    Pretty sure he came to class drunk, often referenced beer in his examples and would slur his words. Several students who had previously taken AP MicroEcon in HS noticed he was teaching equations wrong and did not actually know what he was doing. Nice guy, terrible professor. ...Continue reading

    Professor Heard is a fairly good lecturer. When I took the class the lectures were recorded and available online and attendance wasn't taken. He can come off as curt and rude sometimes. He is very slow to grade and did not provide good feedback on assignments or tests. If you understood 212 you will have a good foundation for this class. ...Continue reading

    Lectures can be boring, and he expects you to participate in discussion (no one does), but he's a good professor and you learn a lot. The two books he assigns are interesting, and if you can memorize the bolded terms and important information, the tests are fairly easy. ...Continue reading

    Came from ME having taken fluids last semester, lots of theory with a terrible prof who liked to be cryptic and trick students. This guy was really refreshing in comparison. Homework graded for completeness, half of all class time spent on examples, tests pulled from quizzes and very reasonable. Grades heavily from tests though, 90% of the grade. ...Continue reading

    Paul's actually a museum researcher that the university gets to teach a class. He's not the best with lectures - reads them from a paper - but his tests are really reasonable and his essays are all under two pages long. He stresses reading the books, but I watched a movie for one and listened to an audiobook for another. Overall an easy A. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Cooke is one of my favorite professors that I have ever had! The course pack is a great alternative to a textbook. Papers/projects are easy A's but her tests are EXTREMELY tricky (answer choices A-E that are all meant to confuse you). Overall, I would definitely recommend taking her class! Attendance is part of grade. She makes everything very clear from the beginning, and is easy to follow. She's very organized and open with what you need to do to make a good grade. The tests can be tricky, but you should be fine if you follow her study guides. Very nice and helpful with questions! I LOVED her ...Continue reading

    She is scatterbrained at best. Seemed unaware of how the forums worked. I had to go behind her for each assign. and clarify why a grade was given. She would say that they were late or I didn't respond. I would then have to go and write down the names and times I responded. Does not respond to email or responds vaguely and does not answer questions. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Gardner makes exams that are terrible. She manages to find that ONE SINGLE detail that she hardly mentioned, study the bare essentails. Also, if you have questions don't bother asking. She is super defensive and arrogant and is horrible at answering direct questions. I would not reccomend her, esp. not summer. ...Continue reading
