Off-Campus Dining: Its a college city and boston is a city so the prices are high but the hours are late and the variety is there

3 College Freshman

Administration: If you are quiet you can get away with a lot of things.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It can sometimes be hard to get into frat parties. Almost all parties get broken up because of the high police presence.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They do reconsider you for other scholarships and there are scholarships of the month that you can sometimes apply to.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Although the meal plan is super overpriced, the food you get is often very very good.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. The buildings are pretty good and the facilities workers really make sure to keep it clean. It is a lot easier then off campus because you do not have to deal with leases and problems with your landlord. The freshman RAs work really hard to plan programs and make it a great community, but that often gets lost once you become an upperclassman and move into apartments.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Even though it's hard to find and the parking situation may be limited, not having to live in a dorm is awesome!

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Due to being in the city, there are quite a few options available.

4 College Senior

Administration: Rules are enforced and the campus atmosphere is not stressful.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I cannot afford to live on campus, so I wouldn't be a able to give a review.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life is not a major part of the school. The sororities/fraternities that exist are often tied to community service or academic majors, and are not as popular as they are in non-urban schools.

Athletics: We have several gyms that are modern, accessible, and nice, if often crowded.

Off-Campus Dining: Since Northeastern is in the heart of Boston, the possibilities for off-campus dining are limitless, and you can find whatever you're looking for, generally accessible through the T if not within walking distance.

4 College Student

Administration: The policies are typically fair and reasonable, and things flow smoothly.

4 College Student

Scholarships: Though my family negotiated financial aid with all of the schools I was accepted to, Northeastern was the only school that actually increased my scholarship package, which was excellent. However, they did not offer me the best package I was offered, and I am still going to have more student loans than I care to think about.

3 College Student

Party Scene: We all love to party, but Boston isn't the easiest place to do so. Most people have small friend gatherings or go off campus.

4 College Student

Campus Food: For college food, Northeastern has some great options. Rebecca's in particular is amazing, and the dining halls aren't bad. I wish more places accepted meals instead of dining dollars, which can be pricey and run out fast.

Campus Housing: As a member of the Honors Program, my dorm is great! The annual housing process for choosing housing, however, is somewhat confusing, and there could be more options available; my housing next year will not be as wonderful as it was this year (difficult to top) due to a low lottery number.

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.
