4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Even though it's hard to find and the parking situation may be limited, not having to live in a dorm is awesome!

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Due to being in the city, there are quite a few options available.

4 College Senior

Administration: Rules are enforced and the campus atmosphere is not stressful.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Lot's of different options, if paying out of pocket, it can be a bit pricy.

Campus Housing: I cannot afford to live on campus, so I wouldn't be a able to give a review.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life is not a major part of the school. The sororities/fraternities that exist are often tied to community service or academic majors, and are not as popular as they are in non-urban schools.

Athletics: We have several gyms that are modern, accessible, and nice, if often crowded.

Off-Campus Dining: Since Northeastern is in the heart of Boston, the possibilities for off-campus dining are limitless, and you can find whatever you're looking for, generally accessible through the T if not within walking distance.

4 College Student

Administration: The policies are typically fair and reasonable, and things flow smoothly.

4 College Student

Scholarships: Though my family negotiated financial aid with all of the schools I was accepted to, Northeastern was the only school that actually increased my scholarship package, which was excellent. However, they did not offer me the best package I was offered, and I am still going to have more student loans than I care to think about.

3 College Student

Party Scene: We all love to party, but Boston isn't the easiest place to do so. Most people have small friend gatherings or go off campus.

4 College Student

Campus Food: For college food, Northeastern has some great options. Rebecca's in particular is amazing, and the dining halls aren't bad. I wish more places accepted meals instead of dining dollars, which can be pricey and run out fast.

Campus Housing: As a member of the Honors Program, my dorm is great! The annual housing process for choosing housing, however, is somewhat confusing, and there could be more options available; my housing next year will not be as wonderful as it was this year (difficult to top) due to a low lottery number.

College Senior

Greek Life: I have no idea about Greek Life personally, but from the girls that I've known in sororities, they seem to have enjoyed it.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing in the area around campus is pretty much one of two things: extremely small and very expensive, or for slightly less but still way too much money, you can be in a more dangerous area with careless landlords.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Boston has lots of different and great food! The area around campus is definitely not lacking, there is something for everyone.

3 College Senior

Administration: I haven't had any problems with rule-breaking and I don't really know anyone else who has. Maybe it's pretty lenient after all.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I receive financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and work study. I have not had any problems communicating with the FA office and when my counselor is not available, there is usually someone else who can answer my questions.

Party Scene: Since there are so many different schools in the area, I've found that most parties integrate a larger group of people than just students from my school. In that sense, it's been fun to meet a diverse group of people. I don't really go to parties anymore and find that the bar and music scenes are more my thing.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: There are plenty of options available on and immediately off-campus. When I had a meal plan, I never had any problems with the dining halls. There's a decent variety between the different locations and plenty to choose from within each one. I miss Wendy's being in Curry.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I only lived on campus for my freshman year, and where I lived was fairly standard. However, there are many upper-classman (and even freshman) dorms that are really quite nice. All dorms are very accessible to the rest of campus and convenient to other nearby amenities.

Campus Food: East gets old after a while, and usually the food is cold. It's also super busy sometimes, especially after the NUin kids came, because East Village doesn't have its own dining hall.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Its pretty good, the freshman dorms are really close to campus, and having a dining hall in the building is pretty nice. Sometimes it gets loud at night and the RA's don't inforce quiet hours, which is aggravating for an athlete with early morning practices. For upperclassmen housing, the lottery system is hectic. A lot of people got screwed over this year because there weren't enough housing choices left after the seniors and fourth years chose.

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.
