It was one of my first choices to attend here, and provide you with a supporting program to help you during your first two years, which really helped me keep on track and be reminded of important things. I love the atmosphere, the clubs, and how its easy to commune to. The professors are also very kind and easy to reach at when you need help.
It is a great and open school for all cultures.
Northeastern Illinois University is an okay school. But I care about my education. I am in the Honors Program and still do not feel academically challenged. The FYE classes are supposed to help freshman get to know each other and get use to the college, moat of the class is lecture based with the few interactive activities that are dry.
Since beginning Northeastern Illinois University on August 2016, I had experienced so many positive things. Northeastern is a place I called my second home and a place I let my differences shine. It's a school where diverse backgrounds clash to create an environment so beautiful and welcoming. I am proud to call myself a Northeastern Illinois University's Golden Eagle!
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Northeastern Illinois University is 71%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to stay as focused as possible on college work, that there is time for more social activities after graduating. I would also tell myself to try volunteering at different places in order to get a view on what I would like as a career choice for the future, by gaining experience on different areas it may be easier to pick the right career. I would also remind myself of the benefit of staying focused in school instead of trying to do everything at once, because sometimes school can take the back seat when it comes to being out with friends or other activities. Lastly I would tell myself to be proud of the all the accomplishments that I have made and all the accomplishments that will come, to keep going strong and never give up.
The environment is peaceful and extremely diverse. It allows students to interact with one another and from different cultures. The various extra curricular activity clubs enables students to get a sense of belonging and in learning from cultures other than their own. The staff and faculty work very well with students and assuring that students can meet their academic needs with tutoring services, available resources, and establishing great communication relationships with those that are a part of the university. I have never felt as an outcast while here and am confident that my decision to be was a right one.
The lack of coordination, there seems to be a constant uncertainty that surrounds everything. Information is scattered and you sometimes have to go digging to find something you want or need. As someone with little college experience I found it difficult to find the information I needed to get my financial situation under control. One of the programs that claimed it would save me money missinformed me, and that the $4000 id save off tuition, is just in remedial classes id otherwise have to take. This is the clearest example of missinformation I've had to work against.
I would’ve liked to visit the university couple of times before the school year started. That would have helped me know the departments, and where my classes would be located, I don’t have to get lost when the school starts. Talk to my advisory all the time especially when I decide my major or what classes I want to take or what I have to do after the four year college. In conclusion I would be more careful about what I’m going to do in college because it helped me a lot.
THAT IS REALLY DIVERSE. THE TEACHERS AND STAFF ARE HELPFUL. STUDENTS ARE REALLY FRIENDLY. I FEEL SAFE AND SECURE. I TEND TO DO WELL ADN ALSO GET ALONG WELL WITH STUDENTS AND STAFF.
Well, first If had known that in college you have to write many essays all the time, I would have payed more attention to my english teacher. Also I wish I had known that there was nothing to worry about college; for instance, I used to worry to much about not doing good in college because english was my second language. But now that i am in college I know that there are many people there to help me with all my assigments.
If you don't know what you want to major in make sure you see an advisor to get ideas and advise on what classes to take. If you already know what you want to major in, try to review the course catalog so you can go in to see an advisor ready with questions.
Diverse culturally, intellectually and socioeconomically.
Northeastern Illinois University has a variety of nice people, from all different countries and cultures. Plus, they have a bachelors program and a masters program for every student who actually diligently applies to Northeastern Illinois University. The staff are very caring and carry charisma too, which I appreciate the courteous treatment that I do not see in Catholic schools. It is a pleasant experience.
Honestly its best know as being an option open to everyone. They have programs to make sure people are accomodated no matter their level of learning. Some people want to go to a real college instead of community and so they go here. Its a commuter college so its also a good deal cheaper without board. When I was touring the campuss I saw both young and old, high achiever and low achievers, as well as all ethnicities. That to me was the strongest proof that NEIU is meant to be accessible to all.
I am apart of a student ran organization, and we just do not get the help from higher up departments that we need. We plan the events for the students on campus and the community, and since we are a commuter school we try to attract as many people as possible to get involved and/or attend and when we reach out to the higher up administartors to help us do so we are often let down.
The only person that should not attend NEIU is the student who doesn't plan on taking their education seriously. The school is fantastic with great professors and an extremely accommodating administration. Everyone is genuinely passionate about the sucess of the students. Yet, there are no hand outs at NEIU; you must work for your degree! If a student doesn't do well, it's their fault, not the school's.
