After Northeastern University

I like how involved a student can get with the school. The university in general makes many events available to both current students and alumni/e, so it's easy to stay connected. The best part about Northeastern is probably the effort that the university puts forward to get its students out in the field. I have friends in hard science majors who become research assistants after class for professors, even though they are still underclassmen. And that's on top of the co-op program that they run! It's easily one of the university's biggest selling points. Given the chance, I probably would have picked my school over again, even if it wasn't initially my top pick.

What makes Northeastern unique is its dedication to giving its students real-world experience with its co-op programs. In addition, the Career Services center is very helpful and a valuable resource for both Northeastern students and Northeastern alumni. If you are a graduating high school student or a potential transfer student and want to add some experience to your resume while in college, definitely consider applying to Northeastern!

Northeastern University is such an amazing place to study. My favorite part is the co-op program, in which you spend at least one semester off from classes and gain real-world work experience! There are also tons of opportunities to go abroad and do research with highly skilled faculty members. The professors are all super qualified and want you to learn; they really take an interest in you as an individual.
