Off-Campus Housing: It's expensive student housing. I have lived off campus for the past four years, and it doesn't get any cheaper or better. But it is fantastic having your own room and getting rid of the twin bed and having to sign yourself in to your own dorm. Mission Hill just keeps getting more expensive for less space.

Party Scene: There's always a party or a bar of club to go to, you just need to have friends. Those that complain about the party and weekend scene clearly don't want to be a part of it, and that's fine. I always have a blast!

Administration: Northeastern is strict in many areas to protect the students as we are in the city. Signing guests into your dorm is a hassle.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: There are a lot of students so it takes some time to receive your package, and the counselors are hit or miss.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: The food here is great for college - there are so many options you can't go hungry

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's a college dorm. It is going to be overpriced, and small, but it works for a few years. I moved off campus my third year, and it was cheaper and much more spacious, but not as close to campus.

4 College Student

Athletics: I play on the Club Softball team and while it is a hassle to get time in Cabot to practice, the amenities we get such as training is great.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus and I haven't looked for anywhere to live off campus so I don't have an opinion.

3 College Student

Party Scene: When you can find a party to hang out its an okay time, but I've found myself staying in our dorms with our friends a lot more.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Wings over Boston and Uno's both take dining dollars which is really convenient.

4 College Student

Administration: The administration all over campus is very helpful and pleasant to speak to.

4 College Student

Campus Food: I liked the food it was very delicious and there was a lot of variety every week.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: I lived in a brand new building and the building was very clean and spacious.

Academics: Classes can average from moderate to hard, but it's not so bad as long as you don't procrastinate.

Campus Quality: It depends on the facility.

Local Area: Boston is a great city, but I had higher expectations is regards to better food and the locals. While there is great diversity in Boston, I can't help but feel that there is a divide among the people of Boston, in a sense that there is little interaction between ethnic groups.

Overall Experience: With every school, there are pros and cons. For me personally, I am very reserved and not easily able to jump into small talk, which served as an initial problem in terms of making friends. However, upon joining student organizations, I made my two best friends, and it has been a blast ever since. From my clubs, I gained a lot of advise regarding my career and activities I want to pursue in general, as well as learned more about who I am. While people can be cold, there are a lot of people who are very nice and easy to get along with. NU is really what you make of it. When it's not zero below outside, the NU environment is very alive and popping.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Take full advantage of the career fairs, the career counselors and workshops from the get go. Do not wait until the semester before co-op! It is very likely that everyone will get a co-op. Nevertheless, NU has the best co-op program in the U.S., even though for some majors, co-op can be more competitive.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys at NU are attractive.

College Freshman

Greek Life: It doesn't matter whether or not you're in a fraternity.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The atmosphere at hockey games is lively and festive. It's a great time.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It definitely depends on the situation. It can go either way.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: When you're on the meal plan, you wish you had more dining dollars to eat off-campus.

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.
