'Limits' lets you say that different limits can apply to different users,
not that different limits can apply to different parts of your tree.

I think you must put ou=people,... in a separate database with its own
limit.  Then searches based at dc=ncsu,dc=edu will by default not
descend into ou=people.  You can put the 'subordinate' keyword in
ou=people's database definition if you wish to change that.  (I have
not tested that.)
