What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pretty Good all things considered, I think that there are certain things that could be improved but generally I enjoyed the environment from what I'd seen and think that it is a rather great college. Everyone that I had met seemed rather good and I can see why this college is one that has been respected for so long.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

North eastern university is a top tier university in downtown Boston. It is ranked highly in US News as well as others. Students are also allowed to take up Co-Op positions for up to 8 months per year. Most students do some Co-op outside school. The professors are excellent and are on par with the best.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I consider Northeastern University to be a very opportunistic school that provides students with many resources to achieve future success, both academically and professionally. I like the academic environment as I feel it is not too competitive and consider the courses challenging in terms of workload but rewarding. The Boston setting definitely contributes to the school's opportunities and makes it a more fun environment as well. Overall, I love Northeastern and I'm very glad I have the opportunity to go here and take advantages of all the experiences the school has to offer. While it sometimes lacks in certain areas (I do not always consider the housing and dining options the best), overall I really enjoy it and feel that I will get a lot out of my time here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school in a great location, with loads of opportunities. Whether through the school or through the city of Boston you can find a group of people into anything you are interested in. Northeastern provides amazing opportunities for internships and study abroad that almost every student on campus takes advantage of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northeastern is a fantastic school where you can get involved in anything. As a second year, I will be graduating in 4 years with two 6-month work experiences, a leadership position in Greek life, a two year work-study job in a national organization, and as a member of Council University Programs. The Co-Op experiential learning program really gives you an edge on your peers from other schools and sets you up well for grad school of directly going into the workforce. Boston is a beautiful place to live and learn and I'm so happy I made the right choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Northeastern is is pretty good school. Admissions are hard so many students are competitive about academics. Some majors are definitely harder than others, especially depending on how many coops you plan on doing and if you are on a four or five year track. Mental Health counseling and overall freshman support systems are the weakest part of the school, not many resources to go to if you are struggling mentally or need a professional to talk to. Dining hall food is okay but you can get sick of it very easily. Best part about the school is being in the middle of Boston, lots of things to do on the weekends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Northeastern is a good school. There is a good balance of students that are in different majors, especially health science, engineering, arts, and business. The class sizes are relatively small compared to public schools (I'm assuming). The biggest class I've been in was ~200 students for a freshman biology class. Everyone is pretty outgoing and nice, and there are clubs to join, as well as greek life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

People do not make an effort to socialize outside of their dorm or on-campus housing. This is difficult especially since on-campus housing at northeastern has and will continue to become a real struggle for anyone not a first year student. You can join clubs, but those tend to be more resume building based, as in a place where people make minimal side conversations and simply try to work their way up in the ranks to look good when applying to coops. Club sports can be fun but are typically super competitive if they are based on tryouts and even if not only offer a very minimal social outlet. I have not tried any intramural sports but have heard those are only fun if you've known your team in advance, and the varsity sports scene here really isn't anything to get too excited about. A stereotypical student here is someone more focused on molding themselves into a valuable job candidate than actually being social. Classes are fine and can sometimes be difficult depending on your major, but one guarantee is that if you come to Northeastern you will get a job, just not necessarily any of the fun that typically goes along with college. In all honesty came here for the program knowing that I wouldn't be happy with the social life, and I still question every now and then whether I made the right decision.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love it at Northeastern. Everyone I've met here has been super friendly and super willing to help. While Northeastern is very academic and career-driven (thanks in large part to its renowned co-op program), students here are very eager to help each other succeed. Located in the heart of Boston, there is always something for students to do outside of school as well. Being such a large school with so many different students, there is also an abundance of clubs available on campus and you are sure to find your fit -- be it greek life, club sports, academic clubs, cultural clubs, etc.. While Northeastern is certainly not a "traditional" college (with so many kids moving on and off for co-ops, study abroads, etc.), there are many ways in which it still offers the traditional college experience, such as going to hockey games (like the annual Beanpot tournament), going to off-campus frat parties, and just spending more time on-campus and signing up for a bunch of clubs. This is probably the best part of being at Northeastern: I know my education is unique as I get to apply what I learn in the classroom to real-life work experience. Yet, I don't feel like I'm lacking any of the "traditional" college experiences everyone talks so much about. Could not recommend the school more highly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

THE COOP PROGRAM IS GREAT!!! its nice to take a break from classes for a whole semester and it is not just a break but its an opportunity to gain skills in your field or any other field that you might be interested in so that by the end of your college life, you are well equipped with real life work experience which is AMAZING!
