4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel that they make the courses as easy as possible while teaching us everything possible, which is the way it should be. My biggest class was 250 people and my smallest class was 11

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Due to the co-op program, we are almost guaranteed a job after graduation. I plan on attending medical school, so it raises my chances of admittance as well

Health & Safety: The Health Center on Northeastern is pretty good. Study stress is a huge problem on Northeastern, and I have friends who were told there wasn't a psychologist available to see them until the next semester.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great. The rooms are nice enough and they fix anything that is a problem. The main issue with on campus housing is actually receiving it. I was forced to move off campus this year because there wasn't enough on campus housing.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't participate in Greek life, so I'm not positive, but there is no housing for Greek life on campus. Greek life isn't huge at Northeastern

3 College Junior

Athletics: We don't have a football team, so the most popular sport is hockey. Hockey isn't as popular as football, so it's not very popular on campus. It's only popular when we play another Boston based team

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Co-op is what makes Northeastern unique and is the main reason I went there. Even with the subpar housing options (not enough for everybody), I would still choose to go there just for co-op

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is extremely convenient, especially when students get into alternating co-op cycles. It allows them to move in and out of nearby housing as they come and go for co-ops, which eliminates the headache of dealing with subletting an off-campus apartments for six months. However, the on-campus housing can be extremely expensive, and since students can change their co-op / academic plans relatively quickly, some students may find themselves living in close quarters with less than ideal roommates. The lottery system gets slightly better the older a student is, but it is still not guaranteed after the second year, which can cause last minute scrambling for somewhere to live off-campus.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Northeastern's co-op program is the best and it heavily influenced my decision to go there. While it's academics are overall rather challenging, I have found in my experience that the professors are either very involved in teaching their courses or they are pretty disinterested and don't even bother to learn who their students are. Regardless of their teaching styles or general interest or disinterest in their classes, it often feels as though they to believe that their class is the only one that matters.

Greek Life: My school doesn't have a particularly large Greek life but a lot of people still join. There are a lot of frats/sororities for people with different races (although not exclusive), interests, etc.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't know much about the athletics at my school. I'm more focused on my academics.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The co-op program at my school is really amazing. It allows me to get real-life experience while still in school. I've really enjoyed my professors so far. For the most part, they have all been enthusiastic about the subject and very helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are all beautiful buildings, with wonderful RA's and great janitorial staffs.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is not a huge scene on our campus, but they are tight knit smaller communities within our large school. Several of them are cultural sororities, focusing more on shared culture than on typical greek life topics

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: All of our sports are very successful and are made to feel important on our campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school provides countless opportunities to succeed and truly has "something for everyone". With the very large size of the school comes a very large family community. This school is unique because of its developed co-op program, making it easy for every student to gain experience in their desired field before graduation.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: School is very big on personal safety and health. The NUPD are amazing. They offer multiple self defense classes, support services, walk escorts, amnesty from university punishment for you and a friend if you call in for a ride when you got a little carried away with your drinking. The health center on campus is always available to provide you with any easy medical service - whether its a vaccine or cold medicine.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I absolutely love this school. Incredible opportunities at every turn that are presented by supportive faculty. Student body is diverse and are generally friendly. You name it, we probably have it. Music. Co-Op. Athletics. Art. Libraries. Charity. Politics. Internships. Greek Life. Study Abroad. The list is endless.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The co-op program is education gold in today's society. You earn a degree and a resume by attending this school. No more of the classic college grad dilemma: "Can't get a job because of lack of work experience, can't gain work experience without a job"

4 College Student

Campus Housing: It's a college dorm so yes - they can be very small. It all depends, though. Some halls are more spacious, others are a little better. Even the furthest housing is withing a 15 minute walk of all of campus, though.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The school has a great atmosphere with students and faculty who are truly willing to help you out. It's a lot of commitment and dedication to your studies, but there is no lack of social and extra curricular activities, whether it is with the school or just in the city of Boston.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I felt NEu kept everyone up to date if there were any current issues that could be a potential risk.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The application was easy to understand, the admittance counselor was great. The process during school was great.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The campus looks beautiful in pictures as I am an satellite learner I did nto get the opportunity to explore the campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I am attending online so I am not sure that it is even possible for sorority.

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.
