Favorite Part of NCCU

The family atmosphere. You truly feel the LOVE and EAGLE PRIDE from not only the students, but the faculty as well. There is not a day that goes by where I don’t feel at home with my decision to attend this illustrious university. I LOVE MY NCCU!

Favorite Memory

I have had an endless number of memories, way too many to count and many more to come. These memories range from late-night study sessions in the library, snowed-in nights with friends, all of the events of Homecoming, and many more. What made these memories truly special was that for every event, I was surrounded by life-long friends I have made at NCCU.

Advice to Future Eagles

1)     Be yourself. Discover your passions and who YOU are.

2)     Network and make connections. It’s not about who you know but who knows you.

3)     Get involved. There is a club/organization for everyone; if not, start your own!

4)     Never compare yourself to others. Your path will never be the same as someone else’s, but you will reach your goal. You will encounter detours and hardships, but don’t let that deter or discourage you

5)     Take chances. College is a one-time experience that you will never get back, so make it unforgettable. Go through college with no regrets or wishing to have done more.
