3 College Sophomore

Weather: I've grown up in New England so I love the weather. You get a really hot summer, a beautiful, cool, cozy fall, a long cold winter, and a brief spring.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Right in the Back Bay of Boston. SO much to do and so many places to walk to and explore. You can get anywhere is Boston with the two T stops on campus. There is definitely still a campus feel however, but the city is just a few steps away.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is not easy to come by. Academic scholarships are more common and can be pretty generous, but when tuition is $50,000+ you still end up paying quite a bit.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never actually felt unsafe on campus because the Boston Police HQ is practically down the street and campus security is always around.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The coop program provides a very satisfying experience to students here allowing them to work for money for a semester away from the campus. This also opens more doors for careers in the future.

Campus Food: Lots of choices that are both healthy and delicious. Although it's expensive, I believe its worth the price for the food you receive. The location is also conveniently close to the dorms.

Scholarships: This University was VERY helpful with my financial aid process; the website helped me fill out the required forms and counselors were always on standby-by to help me if I needed it.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I enjoy the academic challenge brought by Northeastern University, but I want to see more other then the coop program. The class sizes are nice and small which encourage a learning environment. I want to see more effort put into the engineering program.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many dining halls on campus which is great because one is usually convenient when you need to grab a bite to eat quickly. The dining hall options are good as well and you can always find something that you like. Northeastern does a great job making healthy options available.

Guys & Girls: At Northeastern, they take a lot of pride in how diverse the student body is. There are people from all over the world who have different cultures and ways of life. However, everybody can find a group of guys or girl that are "their type" because at Northeastern there are people from every type of group you can imagine.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have good sports teams, but not a ton of school spirits. A lot of people go to games in the first couples years, but it putters out after that. Athletic facilities are great on campus and there's tons of access / programs that just about anyone can take advantage of. The intramural program is awesome too. Tons of choices there.

4 College Junior

Technology: Definitely a lot of options for computers, and they're adding tons of new ones each semester. If you're major requires specific software, there will most likely be one or more computer labs available specifically for your major. Printing is available and you get a certain amount of printing dollars per semester, which you can always refill. Right before class times, the lines can get pretty long though.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Some pretty solid choices, but it can get a bit repetitive. Each dining has its own specialties, so everyone has their own favorite. The profiler meal plan is definitely the best choice.

4 College Junior

Local Area: It's an awesome area with lots of dining and shops and things to do. The rest of the city is easily accessible by public transportation or walking.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The process is simple enough. They aren't particularly generous with aid in my experience though.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Boston is a wonderful city, and there are many things to do all the time, shopping, dining, and many museums to see. There are many universities in Boston, so there are lots of young adults.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is good, service is good, however meal plans are rather expensive.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There are students from all over the country, and some international students as well.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: From what I've heard, there are good parties and a lot to do when you are part of the Greek system.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Boston is a great city to be in. It is so easy to get around, and there is always plenty to do at night.

3 College Senior

Weather: Fall and Spring are beautiful. Summer can be a bit stifling and humid, and winter is horrendous when it snows. Classes do not usually get cancelled unless it is a huge storm, and Northeastern is always the last school in the area to cancel.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Costly. There are very few options to be economical about on campus housing; lots of our dorms are relatively new so the price point is somewhat justified, but most students don't have the means to constantly shell out over $4000 a semester for housing. Towards 3rd year and up, most people move out and find apartments anyway. The campus is really nice though; compact and easily walkable from one end to the other within 5 minutes.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Division 1 sports in most sports. Basketball is getting better and better with each year now. Hockey is a classic, especially against teams like BU and UNH.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: NEU is a great school with lots of academic options. I absolutely love the academic options. there are options to double major, do a combined major or even take on one major with some minors. the professors have office hours allowing students to interact with the teachers outside of the class room.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The campus is absolutely beautiful. During the spring and fall semester the athletic center is open until late and opens super early. the library is 24 hours and is even currently undergoing construction. NEU is all about upgrading and having the best of the best. Most/all athletics games are free for students. there is so much space to hang out and relaxing ranging from spacious quads with comfy seats to common rooms in residence buildings.

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.
