Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

Great study/work environment. Faculty is very resourceful, flexible, open to new ideas, and knowledgeable in their respective fields. Students pursuing PhD in Chemical engineering get tuition, fees, and stipend paid by department. Low cost-of living. Access to multiple characterization facilities.

Degree: Computer Science

Pros Good balance of courses, research and overall doctoral program evaluation. Supportive Graduate Program, director and everyone else to help, encourage graduate students to perform well, overcoming problems. Cons Lack of sufficient grad students in a specific area which can create a more stimulating research ecosystem. Lack of more diverse courses and instructors offering courses, which can excite students to dive into the subject.

Pros-- Raleigh is a great city. Not too big, not too small. Tons of young people and growing quickly. Centennial Campus is new and nice. Cons-- Doesn't have campus town feel like at a smaller school. Relatively expensive cost of living.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is great because it is right in the epicenter of the state government, which is great for a PA program. The professors are engaging and helpful with any assistance a student needs. The only con is that there are many excellent universities in the area so you have to chose the one that is right for you!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The Physiology Program offered great flexibility in terms of class choices. The faculty was very approachable and disseminated information about internships and post-graduation opportunities frequently. However, the cohort was not very cohesive, little community outreach was planned, and courses were mostly didactic in nature.
