5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Boston is the greatest college city in the world.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I never want to move off-campus. So easy and convenient, if more expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. NUPD is the best.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Landlords suck. Housing is sketchy and expensive.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not much going on on campus but there are many schools nearby with active party scenes.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They do a good job of educating students of the rules, and enforce them when necessary.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is becoming more popular, but it still only has a small impact.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some area can be a little sketchy. Prices of living in the city are high. Worth it in the sense of having somewhere to stay in the summer and during Coop.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On-Campus housing is great. The main problem is it's only guaranteed for the first two years, after that it turn difficult. It is also hard to find accommodations for summer classes and fit it around a coop schedule.

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of international students. Most students come from affluent families and dress well. It is easy to get along with people but long term/ strong friendships can be difficult to form.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is present but not the biggest thing. I don't think there is Greek housing available because we are in the heart of the city.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The school policies are reasonable. The administration clearly cares about their students. They are also fair when handling situations.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are enthusiastic. The curriculum is very interesting. The workload is manageable. The library is a great place to study. I've only been here for a semester, but I totally love this university. Northeastern provides many opportunities to study what you are passionate for.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Depends on what you're used to and what cuisine. The South End definitely has the best deals and variety. Cambridge too. Asian food is usually great in qualiy and price. I love symphony sushi right by the school! Pavement is great. Newbury has plenty of options but back bay can be pricey when you eat out more than once a week

Campus Housing: Well the lottery system is a pain in the ass, RAs can be really strict, freshmen dorms are pretty awful except the new East Village. Upperclassmen have better options

4 College Freshman

Local Area: you can't hate Boston, sure its terribly cold but its beauty is always there. if you go out and do something new everyone weekend or meet someone new its keeps snowballing and you never get bored. just dont get stuck seeing the same people and going to the same places. Northeastern's location is tough to beat. Shopping is amazing and you always have the Charles! Get to know each neighborhood

Athletics: not a big deal, hockey and rowing are good

3 College Freshman

Administration: Advisors are complicated, also financial aid or switching a major is a mess. Most teachers are good one on one, few passionate, lots of foreign teachers that are hard to understand, others just pull up a powerpoint and dgaf

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.
