5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Boston has an endless array of amazing to average dining options. Every country will find representation and there is something for even the pickiest of eaters. Five Stars all the way for this one!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Boston is an amazing college town. And there are rentals available from the very top end to the lowest hovel. There is certainly something for everyone, though perhaps not for everyone's budget. However, bringing roomates on board helps offset the rental expense and gives you the freedom and easy access to everything found off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not athletic enough to give a fully realized review, but for a non athlete I too can be pulled into the husky spirit that pervades the campus. It's infectious. Students here are very proud to be a part of the husky community and it shows in (from what I can see) their athletic provisions, teams and fans.

3 College Student

Scholarships: Can I have financial aid thats more than work study?

College Junior

Campus Strictness: I don't live on campus anymore and had few run-ins with the administration when I did.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing is absurdly expensive and poor quality for the price. I could afford my own studio apartment for what it would cost to live in a shared room in the nicer dorms. I would not move back to campus.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: I dislike the premise of this question.

Local Atmosphere: There's plenty to do in the city, and the MBTA will take you anywhere you want to be. Cost of living is very, very high.

Off-Campus Dining: It's Boston. There's plenty to be eaten of all varieties and prices.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I only have experience with the Marino Center, but it's a pretty great facility. Their summer/holiday hours can be irritating, however.

4 College Junior

Majors: I applied, sent a portfolio, and all was well.

3 College Junior

Majors: I have some trouble communicating between the two schools involved in my program.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It's not very present, but it's not a bad scene

3 College Junior

Academics: Professors are all over the place-- most STEM professors aren't very good whereas liberal arts professors care a lot more about students.

3 College Junior

Academics: I have <50 people in my major total. I have trouble communicating between schools.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: I have a very good scholarship and have had no issues with my school.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Police keep us safe, but there are still a fair number of thefts due to the area.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The co-op is great-- we're all pretty motivated around here.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Boston is THE city for college students! There's always something going on!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors here are so helpful and they really want you to succeed! I have been challenged in a bunch of classes here and I would say that I have definitely learned A LOT.

Academics: The Co-op is Northeastern's crown jewel! If you go here, you're pretty much set for internship. The workload is doable; enough to keep you busy, but not so much that it keeps you from having a social life!

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Northeastern, like many of Boston's schools, is full of attractive people. Sometimes it's hard to find people that have brains, looks, and a fantastic personality. But you can definitely find them here! The girls are so down to earth, friendly, and ambitious! The same goes for the boys!

Athletics: Sports are not as big here as they are in other schools but it's still big in my opinion. In your four (or five) years at Northeastern, I guarantee that you'll be cheering for the Huskies!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't take part of Greek life

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: People here are very nice and VERY accepting. They also come from different places in life.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, Northeastern University is a well-rounded school that offers a wonderful college experience and a high-quality education. The campus is beautiful and offers a quiet respite from the larger city of Boston. Northeastern exposes you to city life while still allowing you to feel a sense of community in its enclosed campus. The faculty is helpful, and it is fairly easy to get in touch with the right staff members to assist you with your needs. The co-op program puts you ahead of the game when it comes to job connections, industry knowledge, and professional experience. Most Northeastern students who partake in the co-op program graduate with two or three entry-level jobs on their resume. 

The downsides at Northeastern are minimal. Parking can be difficult because the school is in the middle of Boston. But most students feel that Northeastern offers a unique college experience that allows you to enjoy your college years while getting ahead in your career.
