4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Diversity is a huge factor in my university. Anyone who attends Northeastern is proud to say that we cater to students who have a separate life from school and commute regularly. Northeastern knows that a lot of students have to work to pay for school and have other responsibilities to attend to and make sure to provide late classes and early classes to help as many as possible. I would definitely choose this university once more as i have had a stunning experience here throughout the past couple of semesters. The students and counselors are very welcoming and are always willing to help one another out with whatever goals you might have. I am proud to say i attend northeastern and look forward to spending another year here.

Overall Experience: The teachers are really fantastic in the degree programs but not so much for general education. In addition, the school has a reputation of holding people longer than they should by adding classes previously not needed or present on the graduation evaluation. Keep track of everything very carefully and make multiple copies of everything because they often loose things. HOWEVER, you will learn a great deal (at least in the English department). Also, this school looks really great on a resume because it has been praised for it's teaching programs and a couple other well developed programs. It is also very cheap in comparison to many other 4 yrs.

Overall Experience: The school could be better if it had a greater variety of online classes. The process of applying for institutional aid could be much easier. This school will add value to its surrounding neighborhoods because it will open dorms for the first time. No competitive sports teams exist. Taking care of business with any issue you have can be difficult if you find the staff to be incompetent, rude, or lazy.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Very affordable and education is quality.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far I am pleased with the enrollment procedure. People at the University are helpful, and they are more than willing to help answer any questions. I have had bad experiences in other colleges, but at Northeastern, the staff are incredibly nice and resourceful to the students needs.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I was bad to my school has a child with my mom trying to be a single parent and still getting the education. Since then many of my family members have attended and it has only gotten better. The events held is by far the most fun. Band of bands, breakfast of dinner, movie nights, free massages, blood drives, free pie giveaway.

The academics are amazing! My professors are great my classes yet challenging and always interesting and many a times fun.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school so far has been doing great on helping me with the new application and guiding me for my major, I wouldn't have it any other way.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: At this point I do not have much negative things to say about my school. I enjoy my classes and my teachers. The environment is diverse and it offers an great amount of opportunities. All the necessary tools to succeed are at reach. It just a matter of willing to use the tools. The school offers tutoring for all subjects and the professors are approachable and available often. The only downside to the school is that they are getting rid of many classes and some of those are classes that are requirements for certain majors. Aside from that i am very pleased with my school.

Scholarships: I do not qualify for financial aid but i always do my FAFSA as soon as I can, usually the first week of January. I would suggest the same for anybody else who wishes to go through the process because it will most likely be longer for those who do qualify. I would also not wait to do financial aid, going to the financial aid office at the start or end of a semester can be exhausting because everybody else will be in the financial aid office along with you. Don't wait, always get it taken care of as soon as possible.

Campus Housing: My college is a commuter college which means that there are no dorms. I believe that this is a good thing because then there is more room on campus for activities and colleges. We have a lot of activities from drama clubs to expeditionary clubs. The cost is not as high as a lot of universities but there are a lot of majors to choose from. The campus is quite large with also of trails going in between the various colleges. This is nice because there isn't a lot of traffic in the buildings.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The police are often seen walking around the campus. There is also a police station in the parking lot giving the campus a sense of safety. Due to the police walking around the campus there isn't a lot of prohibited events taking place. My university doesn't have dorms so that may be a reason for the lack in any prohibited events taking place.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I actually really like the campus food. The Chicken fingers are pretty awesome. They also have good burgers and grilled cheese. If you want to eat healthier there is always the salad bar which has fresh stuff out daily. Every once in a while the service can be slow but aside from that it is great. The school store also offers snacks which is really nice when you have a 10min break between classes. There is also a Coffee and Bagel shop which is really nice in the morning and on those cold fall/winter days.

Off-Campus Dining: The usual, great experience.

3 College Junior

3 College Junior

1 College Sophomore

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: there is no variety.

Campus Food: The best thing about our current caterer is that he is willing to listen to the students and adjust to our needs. He does his best to incorporate options that we request. He will also tell us when he can't or it is difficult to provide an option we request. This is a big improvement from our past caterer. So we are happy at this point.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Technology here is no frills, as you'd expect. But it isn't bad for what it is.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Unimpressive variety, but not too expensive. The options we have are not bad from a gustatory point of view, either.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Depends on your professors if they are good or bad. Some care to help you and some don't even try.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is our only option because this school does not have any dorms.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The area is a horrible area filled with gangs and violence. It is hard to find a good apartment that is good priced everything is over priced.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Everything near the school if fast food and they are somewhat expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The strictness depends if you know the right people. If you know the right people they will let whatever you are doing pass. But if higher up people dislike you then they will find any little thing to report you.
