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.

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.

Weather: Boston is cold, but Northeastern rarely cancels classes. On average, we have around 1-2 snow days a year. However, since the campus is relatively small and packed together, you never have to walk to get from side to side.

Campus Dining: Northeastern has great options for everyone's taste. International Village alone has a permanent sushi station, an Indian food station, a grill, and a sandwich station. There are also always Kosher options.

Majors: As a music industry major, I've been exposed to tons of talented individuals and countless opportunities to form strong industry connections at Northeastern. They have an incredible program that fully gives you the chance to explore your options and the many things you can do with this major, and the amazing co-op program makes it even better.

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.
