Majors: Getting the best evaluations and information could be streamlined

Majors: It is fine. The weather has put damper on everything including school work, attendance, etc

Campus Housing: Housing at Northeastern is amazing!!! -IF you get a good lottery number or even any lottery number at all for that matter. West Village is the best place to live.

Athletics: Northeastern has some amazing athletics programs, but sadly not a massive or spirited fan base.

Campus Strictness: Northeastern is fairly strict about certain things. The largest complaint I hear is how little guests a single resident can sign in per night.

Weather: School is only cancelled if there is a snow storm large enough to effect commuters and professor's commutes to school.

Transportation: Since Northeastern is in a city, public transportation or walking are your means for getting around. The only time you need/can have a car is if your co-op must be driven to.

Greek Life: The Greek life scene at Northeastern is not huge. If you want to participate in Greek life, it's quite easy to gain access, and if Greek life isn't for you that's fine too because they are not a powerful force on campus.

Nightlife: The nightlife at Northeastern itself is actually fairly quiet. I would say it's much more difficult to find an on-campus party here than at other schools.

Diversity: At Northeastern, you will see all walks of life of people walking around campus. Different races, different languages, different religions. So many different people are represented at this school.

Off-Campus Housing: Because Northeastern is in Boston, almost anywhere you choose to live off-campus isn't very safe or cheap.

Drug Safety: There is drug and alcohol use on practically every college campus, so Northeastern is no different, however I would say that the party seen is much less crazy than at other schools.

Majors: The co-op program at Northeastern is incredible. You are offered so much guidance throughout the selection process which was so helpful. Pay rates vary, but for business students you can expect to make around $13-$18 an hour. The jobs are usually full-time, so you will be working 9-5 Monday through Friday. Responsibilities vary immensely between different jobs.

Majors: The co-op program is amazing. The fact that I will be completing 3 co-ops is such a privilege and advantage because when I graduate I will have had 18 months of full-time work in the real world.

Academics: The workload of the business school is perfect. The curriculum is challenging but not so difficult that it takes over your life. The professors are very knowledgeable in their fields and want to help you learn.

Health & Safety: Security is strong on campus.

Diversity: Since moving here I have met people from probably more than 100 different countries all over the world. No one is judgmental and people feel free to be themselves here.

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.
