Hey I was recently accepted into this college but I'm not sure if I want to go there.Can anyone give me info on how the school looks and about the social and academic atmosphere because I went on their school website but I want some info from people who either went or know someone who went there.
One more thing only 26% of North Carolina residents attend the school what's up with that?

It's a predominantly African-American school with a good reputation. I know a few non-African-Americans who have graduated from tthere and said it was a great school.

Regarding the low amount of NC residents, the school is private, so in-state NC residents would pay a lower tuition at public schools like A&T or Central. At private schools like Smith, everyone pays the same amount, regardless if you're from NC or not. Like most private HBCU's in the South, you'll tend to see a good number of students from more varied parts of the country, especially the North. For example, by NC's standards, the school may be pricy, but to someone from the Northeast, the cost is probably a very good deal. But overall, if you're looking to attend an HBCU, it would be a good choice.

Johnson C. Smith is an OK school, but I would prefer North Carolina A&T University or Winston-Salem State University what do you plan on majoring in? If you decide to attend Johnson C. Smith make sure the program you choose is accredited.
