4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have never experienced it, but I have heard great things about off-campus housing. It is supposedly much cheaper than on-campus.

College Sophomore

Administration: I really wouldn't know, I don't tend to break rules, and I have never been in trouble.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Luckily, I am able to have a full scholarship due to an employee reimbursement, however I still have difficulty paying for my housing which is why I need scholarship. I feel like I don't have many options and I don't get much aid since I get off so much anyway.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I am not a fan of the Chartwell's version of Taco Bell and how everything on campus is Coca - Cola. If we have vendors, such as Taco Bell, UBurger, Popeyes, they should be able to provide the services that the vendor would normally provide.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for two years now. The lottery process is fair and simple. My only problem with the housing is that it is so expensive, and that is why I have to apply for scholarships.

3 College Student

Party Scene: Sometimes hard to find but typically theres something going on if you look for it.

Campus Food: Stetson East and Rebecca's are great. Chicken Lou's is a landmark.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: One of Northeastern's strengths is its co-op program and career services. It is also an excellent institute for research.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Rent in Boston is quite expensive. There are cheaper options in the Mission Hill area, but it is not known for being particularly safe. If you are willing to commute you can find better options.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are several dining options right by Northeastern, as well as excellent options throughout Boston.

3 College Senior

Administration: I am only familiar with academic policies, but attendance is mandatory for all of my classes

College Senior

Scholarships: I do not use it

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Lots of computers available in the library and wireless internet available throughout campus

3 College Senior

Campus Food: There are a lot of fast food options in Curry Student Center.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness of Northeastern University (NEU) is great! Just by being a freshman, I have seen everyone follow the given rules and respect them very much. Most people do not violate the "No smoking in this area" sign. They actually do listen and go smoke at the given spots that they are able to smoke. This makes me think that NEU students and faculty are extremely great at giving and receiving directions and rules.

Guys & Girls: It's a normal campus except that theres a lot of international students and a lot of rich people

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.
