5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from this school is valuable in acquiring high-end jobs in professional fields. The co-op program allows students to work in the field of their major and decide whether they want to pursue that career later on in life. There are also opportunities for internships and alumni networking in order to start finding potential jobs before graduation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms increase in price and quality as a student has more years residing on campus. Freshmen have little to no say in where they live, but usually live in dorms that are priced the lowest. Upperclassmen have a larger variety to choose from, such as apartment or suite styles. Freshmen dorms are usually not very spacious and have the worst amenities, such as communal bathrooms and roommates that one does not choose.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Different kinds of Greek life are available from social fraternities and sororities to professional, co-ed fraternities that focus on preparing individuals for a certain career. Greeks wear their letters around campus, but non-Greeks do not view them as different or special in comparison to everyone else. Greeks are not known for the parties that they throw, and are just seen as students who devote most of their time to one club.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Students are very passionate about sports such as hockey and basketball and attend various games throughout the season. The women's hockey team is on the road to championships and the school shows their spirit by face painting and giving away free accessories to use at the hockey games.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The diversity of clubs and activities encourages me to get involved and interact with others both inside and outside of my major. The co-op program is also beneficial in allowing me to work in my potential field and then determine if I want to pursue that career upon graduation. I also like the fact that if I enjoy my co-op and everything I learned from working there, I have the possibility of being offered a full-time job after graduation.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Northeastern is a diverse academic community with ample resources for learning and advancing in your desires field. They have an amazing career development center to prepare students for the future.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a wide range of dorms, and they're all ok but they are wildly overpriced even for Boston.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I can't be too upset because our campus is in the middle of a city, but there is only one gym that is not nearly big enough for 16,000 students. I am also on a club sport and we are never supplied with adequate vans or fields and our home field is 1.5 miles away and we have to walk back and forth at night just to get practice time in.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are some aspects I love, but there are definitely improvements that could be made.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Overall there is a large police presence on campus

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall I have enjoyed being a husky and wouldn't change my choice.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You are practically guaranteed a job after graduation

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: overall dorms are good and better than many college dorms.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: its something you do if you want but isn't a huge thing.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The varsity sports aren't the best and no football but the intramural and club sports are great.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The coop program is incredible. Very career oriented school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life can be your entire life, or absolutely none of it. We don't have that many chapters, but enough to have a decent community. That being said if you don't want apart of greek life you can avoid it entirely with ease and no one cares.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Northeastern is division one, but most nights you wouldn't know it. Varsity sports are not very well attended and I haven't known anyone to watch club sports. Men's hockey and basketball can occasionally pull a few hundred students and for big events, Beanpot or NCAA tournament the community suddenly falls in love with the team. Most games though even for these two sports have 50-100 fans at most.

Intramurals are big on campus and are a lot of fun. There are a lot of choices and everyone can play. The rules are fairly strict though so you have to play nice. Have you ever wanted to play hockey but weren't athletic enough and can't skate? We have you covered with broomball. (Its exactly what you think it is).

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have come to love Northeastern. What my favorite part of Northeastern is the very technical and practical approach I have experienced in the College of Engineering. Yes, while learning for learning's sake is ideal, I came to college to get a job and for that Northeastern has prepared me for that extremely well. Between technical classes that extremely practical in my field, their co-op program has been extraordinary and has helped me explore in my field and gain invaluable experience. While going to school for five years seems daunting to some, it truly flies by and graduating with a very padded resume or even a job is well worth the extra year.

4 College Student

Athletics: The athletics at Northeastern are solid, the teams are mostly average in rankings, and the school pays adequate attention to them, however it is clear that the goal of Northeastern is to make athletes into professionals in their field, not in their sport

Overall Experience: This is not a college for those who want to feel like they're going to college, it is for those who are ready to work at the age of 18.

Overall Experience: I hate all the rich people and elitist attitude that has come with the schools rise in ranking. So many rat racers.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: co-op helps, but ultimately it's still really hard out there

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.
