Generally, freshman students will ask what is college really like? College can be a challenging time for any student, even upper classmen. When you join us at North Carolina Central University —you become family. The university wants students to feel comfortable enough to discuss anything with our faculty and staff. We want students to explore their self-beliefs. NCCU wants you to make social and lasting connections through classes, organizations, clubs and churches of choice. The family wants you to succeed academically without stressing out over the rough patches.
