Academically it is anything you could want and more, socially it's easy to party and drink but in general it is difficult meeting new people and branching out here.

Northeastern University is such an amazing place to study. My favorite part is the co-op program, in which you spend at least one semester off from classes and gain real-world work experience! There are also tons of opportunities to go abroad and do research with highly skilled faculty members. The professors are all super qualified and want you to learn; they really take an interest in you as an individual.

Hard to make friends. It's very disappointing sometimes, but the school overall is good. Academics are good, getting out there is a bit harder
