3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus feels relatively safe but this is the heart of Boston and there is regular violence nearby. Go off campus and it's the same as any other large city.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some teachers are very actively helpful, but some are difficult to understand and really rude. I have had some amazing teachers

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This degree with get you a job as long as you have common sense. The coop program puts you in direct line for a career.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Decent housing with lots of options and very close to classes.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is almost non-existent and when it is, it's just another booth to avoid in the quad.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are not of high importance, the kids on sports teams get incredible gyms and scholarships and are generally rude.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Academically strong, but difficult to maneuver, Northeastern is an intense school with good results for those who work very diligently and have good connections.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Soooo rigorous, although I guess that depends on your major. There's a few "crazy, should be fired, super old, why are they tenured??" type profs, but overall my experience has been good.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not the worst, but not the best.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some good, some bad. You always get out what you put in and it seems fair enough. Intro classes are pretty big, but get waaaay smaller once you get even to intermediate courses.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Their co-op program is unbeatable.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: This is factoring in the far-superior upperclassmen housing because freshman housing sucks a lot but it's part of the experience.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I mean, it's nothing compared to southern schools but overall it's pretty okay. They're pretty inconsequential on my non-Greek life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really care about athletics so I don't really care.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school so much, I feel accepted and very challenged here. All of the negatives about my experience here come from my own flaws, not the school's.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's a city campus, so there's always a bit of worry about safety. However, my dorm is right next to a police station, which makes things a bit more secure. President Aoun and Campus Security have been very good about ensuring safety, although there can be scares from time to time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are in general very competent and kind. Some new instructors haven't been the best in terms of lecture ability, but in office hours, they're great and approachable. The classes aren't too difficult in general, and the sizes are manageable.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The co-op program is the best aspect of career prospects at Northeastern. Students who take advantage of the co-ops have a greater chance of securing a job after graduation. The research is hard to get into unless you've done previous research, but overall, the prospects are fairly good.

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.
