Health & Safety: School is very big on personal safety and health. The NUPD are amazing. They offer multiple self defense classes, support services, walk escorts, amnesty from university punishment for you and a friend if you call in for a ride when you got a little carried away with your drinking. The health center on campus is always available to provide you with any easy medical service - whether its a vaccine or cold medicine.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I absolutely love this school. Incredible opportunities at every turn that are presented by supportive faculty. Student body is diverse and are generally friendly. You name it, we probably have it. Music. Co-Op. Athletics. Art. Libraries. Charity. Politics. Internships. Greek Life. Study Abroad. The list is endless.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The co-op program is education gold in today's society. You earn a degree and a resume by attending this school. No more of the classic college grad dilemma: "Can't get a job because of lack of work experience, can't gain work experience without a job"

Campus Housing: It's a college dorm so yes - they can be very small. It all depends, though. Some halls are more spacious, others are a little better. Even the furthest housing is withing a 15 minute walk of all of campus, though.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The school has a great atmosphere with students and faculty who are truly willing to help you out. It's a lot of commitment and dedication to your studies, but there is no lack of social and extra curricular activities, whether it is with the school or just in the city of Boston.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have no been to any classes yet as I am an incoming freshmen but all the professors and teachers I have met so far have been wonderful and the classrooms and lecture halls are top notch as well as all labs and equipment.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Northeastern is known for its outstanding co-op program. I know so many friends and relatives who have been part of the co-op and have even gotten jobs out of college through the co-op program. It's like no other.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not had any incidents with this area, but I have seen nothing but extensive measures to ensure the safety of ALL members of the Northeastern community.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus so I'm not the best person to speak on this, but from what I've seen all forms are well maintained, adequately supervised, fun, and safe.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: My sister is in a sorority and from what I've seen, Greek life is a big part of Northeastern life. They are involved, actively try to help out in the community, and always encourage new people to try Greek life out.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I am no athlete myself, but the sports here are incredible. The main sport that we are all very proud of is our hockey team, but all our sports are extremely well managed with excellent facilities in which athletes can practice and train in.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am an incoming freshman so my experience at college so far is limited, but what I have seen from the school and heard about it leads me to believe I made the best choice to go here. Northeastern is diverse, filled with many amazing opportunities, and goes the extra mile for each individual. They teach you and guide you on how to succeed in your career field. I cannot wait to start my journey here!

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.
