The police in Boston are brutal. Northeastern's OSCAR program is also super strict.

I am in the college of arts media and design. I am impressed with the teachers and the curriculum. They keep everything challenging and interesting.

Boston in comparision to other city's in the world is fairly small but the plethora of different activities, events, shopping areas, sporting events etc make you believe the city is a lot larger than it is. Not to mention Northeastern University is located directly in the middle of the 'Fenway five' a hub for other colleges which include Emmanuel College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences,
Simmons College, Wentworth Institute of Technology and Wheelock College. Wherever you go you are sure to find other friendly, fun, and outgoing college students.

There are an array of places to eat on and off campus making it a sure bet you will find something you enjoy. Being in the spectacular city of Boston gives us many great options off campus but I tend to stay on campus due to how astonishingly good the food is.

I really love living on campus we get SO MANY free items like shirts, ice cream and small stuff like lotions and hand sanitizers etc its great! We also have so many campus events that are free or low cost. As far as the dorms go it really depends on which dorms you live in the freshman dorms are obviously not as great as upperclassman dorms but the the Stetson East dorm which I lived in was nice and had its own cafe downstairs, I liked it. The social atmosphere is amazing there are so many things to do because it is located in the city. It is also really close by a mall and a reflection pool/ park which is beautiful especially in the night when the buildings around it are lit up. I would really recommend it for someone who is looking to go to school in the city where the school is average-sized.

The computer labs are usually very full but there are 3 floors so eventually when looking around you should find a computer or space to work. There are also classrooms inside the library that students can reserve for group projects or even one on one tutoring. Printing is done by using our school ID's. Activities done in the library are usually organized but sometimes I do have issues printing or using the internet.
College Freshman 2013-07-15T20:55:17Z
The food is good. It is usually well done but some of the choices are a bit unhealthy and maybe somedays there are not many choices but it is better than most places I have been to.

Permit costs are crazy but if you get parking passes for only a few days it's $11 a day and you can park in the garage.
College Freshman 2013-07-06T16:45:40Z
When looking around on campus, one can see so many different races and ethnicities that it would be hard to feel out of place.

The coop program at Northeastern is amazing. I am an international business major and have found coops domestically and internationally that have set me apart from the competition in securing a job for after graduation. There are opportunities in all aspects of business, health sciences, physical therapy, engineering, social work, law and more. For business there are many school connections and many land internships for 6 months at firms such as Goldman, Merrill, Bank of America and more. There is also a professional development class that is mandatory before going on coop that prepares you for interviews.

I really enjoy being a Behavioral Neuroscience major at Northeastern U. The class requirements are a good combination of Biology and Psychology, and the classes themselves are quite interesting. Just this past summer I took Sports Psychology and Neurobiology. Many of the internship opportunities are research related.
College Junior 2013-06-26T20:17:40Z
There was no abnormal application process for the BNS major. The requirements include taking prerequisite courses, such as Psychology 100, Chemistry, and Biology (I believe). There is also a GPA requirement of 1.9 or above.

Northeastern has the co-op program, which helps you find a full time paid or unpaid internship. First, students take the co-op class, which helps get their resumes together and learn about the process of applying. I will be taking this class in the fall, and I am really excited because I don't know what I want my career to be, so I'm hoping this process will help me decide what I like and what I don't like.

NEU is a prestigious school that does not fall short in academics. Although we are known for our great co-ops, we have an amazing academic system that prepares us for the co-ops. The great quality of our academics inspire a chain reaction of curiosity. Critical thinking is enforced and we seek more knowledge. It is a great school.
College Junior 2013-06-26T06:39:44Z
The academics at NEU is of great quality. The Co-ops programs are one of the best, and the study abroad programs makes our education versatile. The professors are great, and the learning environment promotes the act of seeking knowledge and asking one another for help. The curiosity that we bring forward as students is more then welcome.

Health & Safety:
A mobile clinic is present on campus. It is a flexible option for students to seek medical attention. The health and safety are perfect. NEU police are a consistent presence throughout the campus. NEU is also taking steps in making the campus smoke free. This act will be the cherry on top.

Boston is a city with a bang. We make a lot of noise and offer a lot of activities both cultural and entertainment wise. I cannot get over the amount of free music festivals happening this summer. Endless fun even for the empty pocket college population.

Public transportation is the key to my success in the Boston Area. There are state trains and buses that will get me to and from. And in case of an emergency, there a hubways readily available throughout the city in case I need a bicycle immediately. Transportation is shy of an A+ because I wish it was open later and more readily available. However, thankfully there are a few options in case one is lagging.
College Sophomore 2013-06-18T14:03:28Z
I have heard it a good balance of challenging and fun. I am looking forward to starting in the fall
College Sophomore 2013-06-18T14:02:39Z
Again I am only familiar with the Master's in Nursing program at Northeastern. Although from the little exposure I have had on campus so far, it seems there is a ray of options and students seem happy on campus
College Sophomore 2013-06-18T14:01:26Z
There are lots of different options for food off-campus. Northeastern is in Boston and provides a lot of ethnic variety.
College Sophomore 2013-06-18T14:00:33Z
I have yet to try campus dinning, I will in the fall
College Sophomore 2013-06-18T13:59:31Z
I am not sure of the internships at Northeastern although I have heard they help you find internships
College Sophomore 2013-06-18T13:56:36Z
I have not started the program yet, I start in the Fall of 2013 .
College Sophomore 2013-06-18T13:54:02Z
The process of getting into a Nurse Practitioner program was very competitive. At first I was wait-listed and shorty after I discovered they only accepted 5 students for the Pediatric Primary Care path. I am thankful I was chosen off the wait-list but if I has to do it again, I would apply to more than 4 schools.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
