4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Student life on campus i believe is what you make it. However i feel that NU does try extensively to make sure that student life is as engaging as it can be, but it the grand scheme of things of comes down primarily on the student. Facilities are not bad considering the age of the school and many buildings have undergone recent renovations. The Marino center is not bad however, it was smaller than i expected for a major university. if you plan on using it frequently get there early. Considering NU is a urban campus green space is not bad at all.

Academics: As a Psych major i feel that the faculty is very qualified and offer many opportunities for research. I feel that the workload is very manageable if your prioritize correctly. With Northeastern quickly climbing in rank, academics are definitely improving and increasing the quality of the education we pay dearly for. Being primarily known for the co-op job opportunities are definitely abundant.

Academics: Northeastern definitely has some faculty that are world-renown in their primary subjects and on the contrary, some professors who seem not to care much. Like any other schools research is required prior to selecting a professor. Registration is relatively easy and straightforward but can quickly get stressful if you don't have a good time ticket

Transportation: Transportation in Boston is pretty solid although it is no NYC it tends to get the job done for the most part.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not a huge school on greek life but they sure try hard to make their presence known around campus. If your into the whole Greek thing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you plan on staying near campus expect to shell out a pretty penny. Boston is a expensive city and you'll tend to find that out rather quickly. availability tends to be snatched up pretty quickly. Parking can be rather difficult as in any major city. Safety-wise all depends on location but i feel that Boston's finest make their presence known.

Party Scene: As i can only comment on the underage nightlife it is not bad if you are not a big drinker. You have to really get to know a good amount of people though so you can have variety on the weekends. Transportation is pretty good in Boston and most places are walkable if your up for it.

Athletics: I, myself, don't go to see games and such but there are some people who do so I guess there's still support for athletics. I know a lot of people who work out on their own, if that means anything.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining hall food isn't that bad...it's better than other campuses.

3 College Junior

Technology: Printing is fine, but the network usually goes down when there's bad weather.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: My family's financial situation changed and we're still trying to see if we can get some sort of aid.

Parking: I wouldn't know because I didn't have to drive to get there.

3 College Junior

Local Area: It's a city so there's definitely a lot to do and there's a lot of walking involved.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Well there is racial diversity but people tend to hang out with the same ethnic groups, especially the international students.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers and students are great.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's very cold and I'm slowly getting used to it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not part of the Greek Life so I can't really say

2 College Student

Greek Life: Boston doesn't allow for Sorority houses without them being considered a Brothel, and Frat houses are also prohibited, therefore northeastern has a minimally present Greek life. It's there, just expect apartment parties, not quite the same thing as the MIT Frats down the road. Granted they aren't shut down because some idiot fell through a skylight while rushing.

Parking: It's an urban campus, parking is a little pricey and limited.

5 College Student

Technology: Library is brand new and littered with computers, printers, plotters, and a 3D Printing lab. It would be difficult to exhaust the entire allotted printing budget in one semester. Wireless all over campus, and runs extremely fast.

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.
