College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm living on campus for the second year in a row.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Melvin freshman year and I loved it and my roommate. The size of your dorm really doesn't matter if you get involved on campus, because you're never there anyways! It was super easy to walk to Newbury street and convenient to the dining halls, outtakes, resmail, and the fenway area.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: I found the best parties to be at off campus apartments of friends in Mission Hill.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I mean its Boston, so you can pretty much find anything you want to eat. Also since it's a big college campus there are lots of close places that deliver until pretty late at night!

Scholarships: I've always had no trouble getting the answers I needed from the financial aid office, but you have to go in person. Emailing back and forth is tricky and they don't reply right away, but in person they are wonderful!

Scholarships: Councilors are easy to contact and almost always someone is available to talk with when you go by the financial aid office.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Usually I attend basketball and hockey games, especially the Beanpot - I love it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Personally I loved campus housing. The only thing I hate about it is how expensive it is. Hence, I'm considering off-campus housing because these dorms are just a rip-off.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Some professors are amazing and some are pretty lame. Sometimes you have no option but to take the class taught by a professor you don't like and it is annoying for me. However, I've noticed that people tend to be indifferent when it comes to picking a professor.

Registration process is easy and quick. Workload depends primarily on a professor. Students have millions of classes to choose from and lots of study options. People usually love studying abroad for a semester or two but I've never tried it.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love the program and I think it is well planned. Students have to take at least one class in every area of business: marketing, finance, accounting, supply chain management etc. They also have to complete at least 2 co-ops which are 6-month-internships.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Noise violations are the primary cause for a visitation from the RA. This also leads to the discovery of drugs and alcohol.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is very expensive if you want to live in a safe and proximate area to the school.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I recently joined and have found a great network of people who encourage and inspire me.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Boston is a great city, but has a curfew of 2am.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining hall is expensive but impressive and convenient.

3 College Junior

Academics: The course work is challenging at times, but depends upon your major. More resources are funneled into engineering, business, and health sciences.

3 College Junior

Academics: The psychology major does not receive much credit. Classes are okay, not very inspiring.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The school is very diverse, but there is not interaction among the different ethnic groups.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I have some, but need more. The school also has raised tuition every year.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Late night eating is difficulty, but there is a variety of genres.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Boston is a very liveable city but really expensive.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Not a strong community presence conveyed by facilities.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Boston is a great little city, I think it's great for people who love the city and who are new to the city. The views, especially in the fall, can be spectacular.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I just started the nursing program, but from what I see to come, I am very excited. I think the sophomore year fall semester is the hardest (my next semester, woohoo), but once that is over I think it will be more smooth. Not to say I think it will ever be easy, though.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places to eat, and everywhere and every kind of food is accessible by taking the T, from Italian in the North End to all sorta of ethnic cuisine.

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.
