Most computers are relatively new and work well. The small labs within departments, particularly social sciences/humanities, are outdated with constant issues. I suspect things are different in engineering/hard science departments, where the university funnels more money.

I have never lived on-campus or in dorms, so I am not sure how strictly rules are enforced or how rampant drug use is on campus.

Distributions often take too long, particularly in the fall semester. With very limited (or non existent) funding during the summer, the loan check is absolutely critical in the beginning of September. Often, students wait until early October for distribution. This makes it hard to eat, let alone pay rent and purchase school supplies.

I've grown up in New England so I love the weather. You get a really hot summer, a beautiful, cool, cozy fall, a long cold winter, and a brief spring.

Right in the Back Bay of Boston. SO much to do and so many places to walk to and explore. You can get anywhere is Boston with the two T stops on campus. There is definitely still a campus feel however, but the city is just a few steps away.

Financial aid is not easy to come by. Academic scholarships are more common and can be pretty generous, but when tuition is $50,000+ you still end up paying quite a bit.

Health & Safety:
I have never actually felt unsafe on campus because the Boston Police HQ is practically down the street and campus security is always around.

The coop program provides a very satisfying experience to students here allowing them to work for money for a semester away from the campus. This also opens more doors for careers in the future.
College Freshman 2013-07-30T01:04:26Z
Lots of choices that are both healthy and delicious. Although it's expensive, I believe its worth the price for the food you receive. The location is also conveniently close to the dorms.

This University was VERY helpful with my financial aid process; the website helped me fill out the required forms and counselors were always on standby-by to help me if I needed it.

I enjoy the academic challenge brought by Northeastern University, but I want to see more other then the coop program. The class sizes are nice and small which encourage a learning environment. I want to see more effort put into the engineering program.

There are many dining halls on campus which is great because one is usually convenient when you need to grab a bite to eat quickly. The dining hall options are good as well and you can always find something that you like. Northeastern does a great job making healthy options available.

Guys & Girls:
At Northeastern, they take a lot of pride in how diverse the student body is. There are people from all over the world who have different cultures and ways of life. However, everybody can find a group of guys or girl that are "their type" because at Northeastern there are people from every type of group you can imagine.

We have good sports teams, but not a ton of school spirits. A lot of people go to games in the first couples years, but it putters out after that. Athletic facilities are great on campus and there's tons of access / programs that just about anyone can take advantage of. The intramural program is awesome too. Tons of choices there.
College Junior 2013-07-29T15:37:44Z
Definitely a lot of options for computers, and they're adding tons of new ones each semester. If you're major requires specific software, there will most likely be one or more computer labs available specifically for your major. Printing is available and you get a certain amount of printing dollars per semester, which you can always refill. Right before class times, the lines can get pretty long though.
College Junior 2013-07-29T15:34:43Z
Some pretty solid choices, but it can get a bit repetitive. Each dining has its own specialties, so everyone has their own favorite. The profiler meal plan is definitely the best choice.
College Junior 2013-07-29T15:27:31Z
It's an awesome area with lots of dining and shops and things to do. The rest of the city is easily accessible by public transportation or walking.
College Junior 2013-07-29T15:26:05Z
The process is simple enough. They aren't particularly generous with aid in my experience though.
College Sophomore 2013-07-29T02:11:09Z
Boston is a wonderful city, and there are many things to do all the time, shopping, dining, and many museums to see. There are many universities in Boston, so there are lots of young adults.
College Sophomore 2013-07-29T02:09:54Z
The food is good, service is good, however meal plans are rather expensive.

There are students from all over the country, and some international students as well.

From what I've heard, there are good parties and a lot to do when you are part of the Greek system.
College Senior 2013-07-29T01:40:10Z
Boston is a great city to be in. It is so easy to get around, and there is always plenty to do at night.
College Senior 2013-07-29T01:39:07Z
Fall and Spring are beautiful. Summer can be a bit stifling and humid, and winter is horrendous when it snows. Classes do not usually get cancelled unless it is a huge storm, and Northeastern is always the last school in the area to cancel.
College Freshman 2013-07-28T22:21:19Z
Costly. There are very few options to be economical about on campus housing; lots of our dorms are relatively new so the price point is somewhat justified, but most students don't have the means to constantly shell out over $4000 a semester for housing. Towards 3rd year and up, most people move out and find apartments anyway. The campus is really nice though; compact and easily walkable from one end to the other within 5 minutes.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
