4 College Student

Overall Experience: the value of a degree from this school is awesome. with the coop program we are building relationships with potential employers!

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: located in boston. Theres the museum of fine arts, TD garden, china town.

most people seem pretty nice towards students and give discounts

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Living on campus is ok. The best dorms are west village or international village. worst dorms have to be berstein or white hall

the cost of the dorms are pretty expensive

3 College Student

Majors: My program is physical therapy. Its a pretty small class so everyone gets to know each other. Obviously the unique opportunities for my program is the co-op program

4 College Student

Majors: Havnt had an internship yet

3 College Student

Health & Safety: There isnt too much campus crime. If we do have any they send the entire student body emails updating us. Also if you are anywhere on campus you can call northeastern PD to pick you up and drop you to your dorm

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: Students are good looking. They usually dress pretty preppy

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is pretty good. Most places close to campus accept husky dollars which really helps to save money

3 College Student

Nightlife: the parties are pretty good. They are usually close to campus and there is always something going on in the greater boston area

5 College Senior

Academics: I absolutely love the professors and the work that they do. I feel I am getting a worth-while education.

5 College Senior

Academics: I think that English Major offers a great mix of classes. I just took a "Fiction and the Movies" class recently and it was phenomenal. I am now taking a class on Robert Frost and it has been equally as amazing. Northeastern has some great professors.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: There are far too many students for the available housing. Some students in the past have had to live at the YMCA on campus since there were no more dorms available.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: There aren't many sororities and fraternities. The ones that we do have have certain requirements, so it might be difficult to get into one.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I am not on campus enough to be able to accurately rate this section. However, the campus police are constantly patrolling and sending out bulletins when something serious occurs, even if it wasn't on campus. This makes me feel safe.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: My paperwork was always lost or not received. Eventually I lost out on a grant that would have saved me nearly a thousand dollars a semester. Enough said.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: The campus dining halls are closed around 8pm, but what about students who are up studying and need nourishment? The food options are great, I just wish on-campus dining were available later.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are certainly many difference dining options on- and off-campus. I would have to say that the late-night dining is especially sought-after.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think Northeastern is a great school, with amazingly experienced professors and really great facilities.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel more prepared with help from my professors and my adviser when it comes to my career.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I wish there were more theatre productions throughout the year and more student art showcased, but what can I say, I'm an artistic person.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Boston doesn't have very many bars that are college-student-friendly, especially not for Northeastern students. Boston University has more bars on their side of town, however.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere on and off campus is great. There are lots of places to go and there's even a museum across the street from the campus!

5 College Senior

Diversity: The diversity on campus is astounding. There are so many different people and cultures to learn from and become immersed in.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics on campus are very important and games are always announced and tickets are very much sought after.

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.
