My overall experience at NEIU is amazing. I will definitely choose it all over again if I had to. The professors advisors truly care for their students' success. The Justice Studies department is helpful and welcoming. The campus is picturesque and tidy. I feel blessed to be part of this institution and definitely recommend it
