There's an average amount of diversity, there are quite a lot of people from different countries. Acceptance of people of different ethnic groups and sexual orientation is very good. There is a sizable and welcome LGBT crowd at Northeastern.

As a psychology major, I am really happy with my program. I have really enjoyed most of my classes, you are allowed a lot of flexibility with the classes you can choose to take, and I've liked all of my professors. Also the psychology electives are really cool. It could be a bit more challenging however.

Once students are 21, nightlife is great. There are a ton of great bars nearby and quite a few right by campus. The house party scene is fun for students under 21, but isn't as abundant as a lot of other schools.

Love Boston! The atmosphere around NU is great. There is just enough balance with a home feeling on campus and a wide variety of things to do off campus. Both campus and the city seem very safe. The people here are all very nice and helpful towards students.

The campus isn't overly strict about underage drinking and drug use. They won't go out of their way to bust you, but if you're being loud and obvious you are going to get in trouble. I have known quite a few people who have been sent to our office of student conduct and conflict resolution for drinking or smoking in the dorms, so you still need to be careful.

The biggest drawback to pharmacy at Northeastern is that you can't study abroad or have any flexibility with your schedule. However, you do get 3 coops and the coop advisors are very helpful.
College Junior 2013-02-09T17:01:38Z
The process wasn't bad at all. The common APP was the easiest way to get into it, and you just select pharmacy as your major.
College Junior 2013-02-09T17:00:58Z
The pharmacy program is nice in the sense that you don't have to worry about getting screwed over with classes because they are already picked for you. The bad part is that there is no flexibility. You can't study abroad, you have to have 8ams, and you are taking the most rigorous course load at Northeastern.

As a pharmacy major, it is difficult to balance social life and studying. I am currently in 4 organizations and maintained a decent GPA. My biggest drawback to this school is school spirit.

The Co-op program is definitely the nation's best, and it gives us professional experience that students from other universities don't get.
The facilities are mostly up to date, but as for campus life, you have to get yourself involved if you want to socialize with people.
There are many sports events, and the school provides rides.

There are plenty of computer labs, located in International Village, Library, and random places with computers inside buildings. However, for cold and rainy days, it is better to have your own computer so you do not have to go out. Printing on campus is very excellent(you get 1200 sheets per school year, and if you double side your papers, that's 2400 pages that you can print!).
Network reliability is good, but the speed will be faster if you have an ethernet cable. It would be handy if you have a personal printer but there is no need since we get a surplus of printing paper from the school(Printers are located in Curry Student Center, Snell Library, and International Village--residents only).
College Student 2013-02-05T18:50:01Z
It's better to just walk, have a bicycle, or take the subway to get to places. Having a car to finding parking(which is almost impossible, and very expensive) is not worth it in Boston.
College Student 2013-02-05T18:48:30Z
Lots of white people, but there are also many people of which would be the ethnic minority.
College Senior 2013-02-04T18:49:31Z
There are plenty of apartments, but if you want to be near campus, you'll pay 1000+ per person. You will have to go through a realtor (landlord's won't accept you otherwise) and their fee will be a month's rent. Places are available, some are really nice, but all are pretty expensive unless you are willing to live 1 mile from campus.

Academic Strictness: 2 strikes and you're out. Northeastern is takes plagiarism very seriously. The first time you are caught, you are in danger of failing the course. The second time will result in expulsion.
This is from the school website: "If a student is found responsible for violating any of the preceding items, a minimum sanction of deferred suspension will follow. A second violation will meet with expulsion from the University." (http://www.northeastern.edu/osccr/academicintegrity/#Plagiarism)
Social Strictness: The RAs are required to report drug/alcohol use and do not hesitate to call the police. It is prohibited in all freshman dorms and most upperclass housing minus the wet dorm(s).

Northeastern's campus is quite impressive. Even being in the middle of Boston, the college feel is lost. The buildings on campus are mostly new or renovated (minus one cluster of 3-4 buildings that somehow all merge into one giant maze). We have been named one of the greenest campuses in the United States. I'm not surprised. In some parts of campus, there is so much green, you forget you're in a city. Smack dab in the center of a city for that matter. We are a 5 minute walk from the Prudential Center. Two T lines run through the Northeastern campus. The orange line stop has its own station as well as countless buses that run through, and around campus.
The Curry Student Center was renovated just last summer and it looks amazing. The top three floors have hold classrooms, dance studios, and offices. The main floor of curry is a popular study area with booths, tables and couches to study on. There is also a recreational area with pool tables, ping pong tables, two flat screen tv's with Wii's, games available to students, and an air hockey table.
There is a is a nice selection of food in Curry, ranging from the only Taco Bell in Boston to a start-up stir-fry company called Kigo Kitchen. Not to mention, there are plenty of DD and Starbucks all over and around campus. A meal plan is required for freshman. There are three dining halls and a few cafe's on campus. Stetson West is known for their stir-fry, which is made while you wait. Stetson East has cookies worth dying for, and IV has a sushi bar, brick oven for pizza, and sandwich/salad stations. All three dining halls have fresh made omelets, and a grill. I find the food quite impressive. There is often fresh fruit which is hard to come by in college and they try to switch it up every day.
Snell Library is a gigantic five story building with seemingly endless rows of books. The second floor was recently renovated to a technology center that is both PC and Mac friendly with group study rooms equipped with giant screens. There are private study rooms on every floor available for reservation. The top two floors are quiet and silent floors respectively. The first and second floors have no advised noise limits and can be used for group studying. The first floor also holds Argo Tea and InfoCommons which can be used by all students to rent equipment or for technology-related questions. The best part is that Snell NEVER closes. That's right, open 24/7 (minus holidays, then there are different hours of operation).
Marino, one of three athletic centers on campus, holds a three floor gym with dance studios, an indoor track, 3 basketball courts, and rows upon rows of athletic equipment. There is also a training center across the street with an aquatic center as well as Mathews Arena which is used for athletic games. Our campus is cray about ice hockey and basketball. Expect big announcements and school spirit during those seasons.

Greek life is not dominate here. You might see some and you might attend some party but other than that its okay. It not like what you see in the movies or what greek life is like in the south.

I came in as a Computer Science major and HATED it. Second semester sophomore year I decided I wanted to be an Econ major and all I had to do was fill out a for saying what major I wanted. So easy!

It is cold during the winter, rains and snows a lot, but changes extremely from day to day. They say in New England that if you don't like the weather just wait a day.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T21:04:11Z
There is a lot of off-campus housing available, whether it be on Mission Hill, over by Symphony, or just around the general vicinity of Northeastern. However, since it is Boston, it can be a little pricy so rooming with a few other people is a must.
College Senior 2013-01-30T00:12:05Z
I don't know much about the greek life at Northeastern University.

Campus is pretty safe, however, leaving your valuables unattended is never a good choice.
College Student 2013-01-29T21:41:45Z
I always find something that I want to eat in the dining halls. There are limited options, but it's food you don't have to cook. Curry definitely helps and there are tons of other places to eat in the area.
College Student 2013-01-29T21:40:41Z
Nightlife is hard unless you are over 21. House parties are around, but kind of far away in the winter.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
