3 College Senior

Greek Life: I know there are some forms of greek life on campus but I have no idea what they do or who they are.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I am unaware of any issues relating to sexual assault.

3 College Senior

Majors: It was not difficult to get admission to NEIU. Applying for my major was easy, just filling out a form. Advisors are able to meet with you throughout the year.

4 College Senior

Majors: My program had many interesting and fun courses. It would have been fun to have more off-campus activities but most people don't have room in their schedules, myself included.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: As a commuter school, most of the late-night antics take place elsewhere, so this isn't really much of an issue.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I'm not really involved so I don't exactly know what they're like.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Wonderful, delicious local options: Hunan Wok, 2 Asian Bros, Charcoal Delights, Outdoor Cafe, Java N Mug.. to name a few

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Diverse selection of restaurants. multicultural ambience. Neighborhood festivals. Students generally get along with neighbors. Administration does not.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Long waits at financial aid office makes it very difficult for busy, working commuter students.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: While there is no on-campus housing, living in the neighborhood is wonderful. Unfortunately, the President's plan to build housing would destroy the vibe because it would force out family-run businesses, working class immigrants, and local restaurants. A horrible and cruel plan...

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Because Chicago is such a diverse city, you are able to find any sort of cuisine that you would like. There are also many different restaurants for any sort of budget.

Local Atmosphere: Being in Chicago, everything can be found around you. Although NEIU is not very close to the downtown area, you are only a bus or train ride away.

Health & Safety: There are always security officers and policemen around campus and making sure everything is okay. There are multiple emergency buttons around campus and in the parking garage.

College Senior

Campus Housing: NEIU is a commuter school. There is no housing.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really do enjoy going to NEIU. The courses are interesting and the professors are very knowledgable. There are many courses that are available, which helps to declare a major. Class sizes are small enough to get individual attention, yet large enough to socialize and meet new people.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: I haven't seen much recruitment on campus, but the experience I received in my clinical trainings was ideal. We do also have a great student teaching program that may lead you to a future career opportunity.

1 College Senior

Nightlife: There is no night-life around NEIU.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Living in Chicago is always ideal for an NEIU student. Public transportation is always available and because NEIU is a commuter school, transportation is absolutely necessary. I would not recommend living very close to NEIU, because it is not in the best of neighborhoods, but moving east into the city is always great. There is always something available and costs vary depending on location.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life at NEIU besides the fact that it exists.

4 College Senior

Academics: Being part of the SPED program at NEIU is intense. It's great because you are a part of a cohort program and you are able to meet and make very great friends. There is a lot of work that needs to be done, but the professors are great.

3 College Senior

Academics: Most teachers are great, yet others teach off their own opinions

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: The cafeteria isn't open as long as school and sometimes after being in the library for a few hours cramming, a snack would be nice... yet it's unavailable.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Not enough variety of professors for the same courses

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't know about it
