3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not an athlete. I don't know too much about the teams, but fans go wild for hockey

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Hard to make friends. It's very disappointing sometimes, but the school overall is good. Academics are good, getting out there is a bit harder

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are not a big deal around campus. But the rec facilities are very nice

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Northeastern is a great academic institution, but it runs like a business not a college

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are a lot of fun. Much easier to get into if you are a girl. There are so many colleges in the area too so Northeastern isn't the only place to have fun. Clubs/bars are also a thing, but more so for upperclass students.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Best parties are at Northeastern, MIT, and BU. All are nearby the area and not too difficult to get to. Really enhance social life and make college more fun.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are many courses offered here that a variety of students engage in. The workload varies on course and teacher, but is always manageable for the most part.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: We have a very diverse group of students. Many students come from all over the world, from a variety of different countries.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Some people are involved with drugs and alcohol and some aren't. It really depends.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For the most part, I have had some excellent professors. There have been a few that I have not enjoyed but overall I really enjoy my courses and teachers.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Northeastern has excellent career services and really works with students to land the best jobs and internships that they possibly can get.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Northeastern is very safe for a city school. I never feel at risk when walking around and am very comfortable at night. The Boston Police and NUPD are always around and so close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If a student has a bad lottery number, it is sometimes challenging to get good housing. However, it always works out and most students enjoy where they live regardless.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is something not every student has to get involved in to have fun, but it is still a great way to expand socially on campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletes are very talented here at Northeastern. However, sporting events are not really a big part of campus life. Hockey and basketball are the more attended games.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school truly encompasses what it is like to live on a college campus while simultaneously exposing its students to city life. It encourages global experiences and offers a variety of programs to allow students to travel abroad while they study here. Furthermore, the co-op process is an excellent way to network and gain work experience while still studying at school.

4 College Student

Athletics: I think the sports are here is great, because they try to achieve their goals all the time with representing our school, but always to show and be positive.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I think my school is great because we are such a diverse school and we can all get together and hang out also that there is no one who is left out. when you need help there is always someone there to help you out. no matter who it is.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have no regrets about attending this school. If you utilize all the resources provided on campus you will succeed. Furthermore, there are events and free food almost every day on campus especially before it gets cold. Even when it gets cold there are still plenty of events on campus, so there is always something to do. And Boston is beautiful!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from Northeastern looks very good due to the nationally known coop program and to the strong academics.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The NUPD is extremely good at their jobs. There is a shuttle you can take if you feel unsafe at night on campus and there is the typical blue light system on campus. Sexual assault is very rare and if it does occur is taken extremely seriously and NU implements a Title IX policy.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Many of the buildings were renovated and have spacious dorms and comfy lobbies. All the washing machines and dryers have recently been replaced with brand new ones, so no one ever has any problems with their clothes getting ruined. Every freshman residence hall has a lobby with a pool table, ping pong table, and fuse-ball table. Speare Hall has new bathrooms. The best freshman halls are Speare, Stetson West, Stetson East, and International Village. If you live in any of the residence halls previously mentioned you will absolutely love it. The halls, bathrooms, study rooms, and lounges in the residence halls gets cleaned twice a day, so living there is a good experience.

Greek Life: There are a lot of frats and sororities on campus, but they are not a big part of campus life. They throw great parties, but a majority of students still attend parties of surrounding universities. If you want to rush there will be plenty opportunities to do so, but you don't have to and will not be treated any differently for being in a frat or sorority.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
