Parking: Parking permits are too expensive, and there is barely any parking ever.

Administration: NEU does well in holding to its standards.

3 College Junior

Weather: Snow isn't always the nicest but sometimes results in a cancelled school day. Seasons are beautiful though and tunnels linking buildings are nice.

4 College Junior

Local Area: It's in Boston. A small city but a city that has a lot to offer.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: They charge a lot for meals...but then again it's all you can eat...aka Freshmen 15

Technology: The technology around campus definitely enhances productivity.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Northeastern borders a ghetto-ish community that is gentrifying. Historically, the area was much worse in the past so it's cleaning up.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Food, it's good. It's Boston and has a diverse student population to keep demand for most popular ethnic foods. They're generally Americanized ethnic foods but they're still good.

Scholarships: The MSRP of Northeastern is ridiculous but they hand out a decent amount to US citizens/permanent residents. International students...good luck.

2 College Junior

Athletics: We're a career driven school with a non-traditional academic program in the heart of a city with little infrastructure to support school sport spirit.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: If you can't find a group for your interests, you aren't looking hard enough. Admittedly, we don't have a big college sports life seeing as we're more career driven, but you can still find something.

Campus Housing: Dorms are expensive, but so is Boston property. They are nice, if you can afford it.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I'm not too much into drugs. Marijuana is easy to come by if you want it but harder drugs are rare are frowned upon. Weed is okay so long as it's discreet.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Boston is a great place to go to school. There's a lot to do. There are always concerts and sometimes great free ones! My favorite thing to do in Boston is to go to Fenway park and watch a Red Sox game. Northeastern is truly a unique university with its co-op program and international opportunities, and I love it! My only regret is the lack of a football team, but our hockey games are always fun!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Boston has a lot of great food options. Northeastern is right on Huntington where there are a variety of great pizza, sushi, burger, burrito and salad places. Whatever kind of food you're craving, it shouldn't be a long walk. There are dozens of restaurants within half a mile of campus. There are plenty of late night pizza options.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's typical New England. It can be hot or freezing, rainy or sunny, snowy or humid. It all depends. It's not great weather but it's not horrible.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Social night life is what you'd expect for most city schools. It's there but sometimes difficult to find. It's definitely a fun place to go to school if you're over 21 but it's definitely not a party school.

Local Area: Boston is a city very quiet buit very fun at the same time. I understand my chance to be able to live in this city. I dont know yet, if I want to spend my life in Boston because my family is still living in my home country France. It will depend on my job.

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.
