4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Although I attend my classes electronically, Northeastern University keeps me posted on safety issues, including any lock downs due to security issues on or near the campus.

Facilities: My school offers online education so that I can fulfill my higher education goals. The professors are very professional and provide immediate answers to questions posted online. The degree I am pursuing in Regulatory Affairs will enhance my capabilities while performing as a Quality Auditor for a biopharmaceutical company during vendor qualifications. Northeastern University in Boston, however, is raising the tuition costs to where it is too expensive for me to continue. I have a very strong desire to continue and finish my studies in this field but I also have to be realistic in knowing these costs will have to be repaid. A scholarship towards this costs will greatly improve my financial ability to stay on track to completion.

Majors: I did a coop at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in the Fiscal and Regulatory Management department. It dealt with donations that came in. My job was to use pledgemaker to record the donations. I had to record from whom the donation was from, where it was going and if it was for an event or if it was a tribute gift. Pay was very good and I was kept busy. I learned a lot about the program, pledgemaker.

Weather: It's New England weather, so you never quite know what you're going to get. That said, the fall/spring is beautiful and the winters are great for skiing!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Northeastern has a stellar co-op program that lets you get real work experience before graduation. My first co-op was with a Fortune 500 company, paid, and lasted six months. Upon graduating, I'll have a year and a half of full-time work under my belt, as opposed to a few measly summer internships.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are many places to eat on campus including restaurants and dining halls.

5 College Junior

Majors: The opportunities for internships is great at this school. Every major has the opportunity to participate in Co-ops.

Campus Strictness: It is very strict such as certain polices, like there is no smoking on campus, you got to be in your dorms at a certain hour, but at the same time it does give certain flexibility to manage your own times, it has also a lot of public spaces either to read, or just hang out.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: You have students from all over, countries such as Saudi Arabia, Ghana, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, England, Denmark, Switzerland, India. and many others. Extremeley culture rich

Majors: I haven't one my internship, but I am planning on doing it. If they offered me to pay for my time interning I would not want them to pay me because I don't want them to think that I'm doing it because of the money but because I want learn and experience what it is teaching students.

Majors: Well, the program at Northeastern is a hard core program meaning that it will only take two years for you to graduate. Also the program asks of every student majoring in special education to go full time. Which I know thats why we will graduate in two years.

Off-Campus Housing: On campus is expensive, but so is off campus. I wish I could move back to campus...it may be more expensive, but I wouldn't have to worry about utility bills or mice.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are SO many restaurants on and around campus. From pizza to sushi, fine dining to fast food, there is always something close by and delicious.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Lots of great spaces for everyone to enjoy, especially now that the campus has gone smoke-free! Being in a city, you wouldn't expect such a beautiful, green campus, but that's what we have 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.
