College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You need to live on campus the first 2 years

1 person found this useful Report
College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I try to eat on campus as much as possible so I don't spend money. Restaurants in the city are expensive ,but food is usually good where I go.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I've never been in trouble. OSCCR will probably put you on probation if you get caught doing something stupid/against the rules

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process and aid received was great for me!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Good variety, friendly staff, but super expensive when you actually look at how much each meal costs on the meal plan.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Really old building, small room shared with 2 others, lots of dust, bad sound proofing, and across the street to leased apartments with rowdy residents.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus and have not had to look for off-campus housing yet

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of places to choose from just on Huntington. Plus you can always get delivery if you don't want to go pick your food up

3 College Student

Administration: I haven't really experienced any good or bad direct enforcement. One annoying thing is that you have to swipe your husky card every time you go into the building and if you want to bring someone from another building you have to sign them in every time they come in. It would be better if you signed them in once and then for the rest of the day they could just look and see if your name is on the list. As far as alcohol and drug strictness if they do catch you doing something you're not supposed to be doing then there will be consequences. But it's not like they're constantly trying to bust people

3 College Student

Party Scene: If you want to find parties, you can definitely find them. The frats have parties most weekends and you can also go to the MIT frats or other schools for parties. There are often things going on in people's rooms in the dorms. But if you aren't a partier it's totally accepted to just chill on a Friday night. Plus you have all of Boston to take advantage of if the typical college party isnt your thing

1 College Student

Scholarships: I got no aid from the school. If I am not able to get financial aid for the next few years I may very well have to transfer schools. Even though our income is lower than it used to be my financial aid advisor said that since neither of my parents have lost their jobs that there will be no change to how much aid I am given. The only thing I can do is send an appeal and see if that does anything.

3 College Student

Campus Food: When you first get here it all looks amazing. And people who visit think it's great. It is true that there are a lot of options, but with any dining hall you get bored of the food really quickly

4 College Student

Campus Housing: I live in White Hall and love it. The building itself is really nice and even has a kitchen that residents can use. The rooms are some of the largest freshman dorms on campus. It's right across the street from Marino Recreation Center so thats really convenient. You do have to cross Huntington to get to classes but the dorm is placed right in between the two sides of campus so it's not a bad walk either way you go.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have loved almost all of my professors. They exude a visible passion for the material they are teaching and are there to help students. I would recommend using the professor evaluations on myneu to help pick professors for your classes since evaluations are required for all students to complete at the end of the semester and it is a more comprehensive evaluation than the posts on ratemyprofessor. Typically, class sizes are under 40 for the business courses that I have already taken

Overall Experience: NU is great! Co-Op is an invaluable experience that I believe everyone should get exposure to. At the same time, however, it may be difficult to maintain connections if you're on Co-Op outside of Boston or are on a different Co-Op cycle than your friends. I have never experienced this thus far, but I know people who are worried that this may happen to them.

The networking events at NU are endless and you are constantly exposed to new companies and professionals looking to hire. The Co-Op advisors (at least for the business school) are absolutely fantastic and are truly there to help you along the way and any time during or post-Coop

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene here is very dependent on who you know. I am in Greek Life here at NU and feel that now that I am a part of a larger community of people, am more exposed to events and parties going on outside of campus.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: NU claims that plenty of students receive their full required aid, but I would like to beg to differ. Most of the people here who receive aid receive under $10,000, which, when you're paying for NU tuition, isn't a dent. The financial aid office is also not a fun place to deal with, but they can answer your questions and ultimately help you understand why you're not getting any aid (lol)

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of food options at NU and with a typical meal plan you get additional "husky dollars" that can be used at participating vendors around campus. Also, if you have extra swipes at the end of the week that you don't want to lose, you can exchange a meal swipe for points at Outtakes where they have a variety of food, snacks, and beverages. Curry center also accepts swipes and husky dollars which is an added bonus!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I like that the meal plan dollars can be used off campus. There could be more variety in the dining halls but it's not terrible. Rebeccas is by far my favorite place to eat and I'm sure I'm not the only one. The price of the meal plan is not worth it unless you plan on eating every single meal at a dining hall.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing selection process is the most stress I've ever experienced. It is very hard to gather people to fill an apartment or you have to wait another week to pick from leftover rooms. Most of the dorms are nice but the leased properties are not very nice. The one I was in for a month was horrible. They put four people in a space meant for two, maybe three. The dorms are right on campus, even the leased properties are only a block off campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's terrible during freshman year, but it gets better.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am worried about being able to afford this school in the future.

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.
