I am visiting Raleigh this weekend to accompany my daughter on her college search. She will be mostly on her own.
Can you tell me about NCSU? What kind of town is Raleigh?
Anyone from this area? What is there to do? How far to a nice beach? Would love to hear from anyone there! Thanks sibs.

Sorry no one has answered your thread until now. I am just now reading it, so thought I'd bring it to the forefront to give it another chance at being responded to.
I lived in Raleigh, NC before. Very nice and very expensive city to live in. The city boasts of the best colleges and universities anywhere. The one problem I always saw on the news was the rapes that occurred on the college campuses there when I lived there. Tell your daughter to take every precaution possible. A self-defense class, never walk alone, never walk after daylight hours, don't go jogging alone or in wooded or sparsely populated areas. Don't talk to strangers, and don't trust a man with a smile as far as she can throw him UNTIL she knows from others that his smile can be trusted. She truly does need to be careful......but, that applies to every college populated city. She'll be in my prayers. :kiss
