Health & Safety:
Overall, NU Boston feels very safe. There's security/campus police and it's primarily situated in a "better" area of Boston. The one area that can get a bit sketchy/dangerous is Ruggles and beyond - but I've never seen or heard of any issues, I just don't feel safe there at night, per se.

The media production classes are few and some are very basic. A more in-depth program would help, but because it is such a small group it is easy to get a lot of help and attention if you seek it out.

Northeastern is so close to Newbury and Downtown that there's always things to do. City living is very expensive though.

NU Police are always available and stake out anywhere that might seem "sketchy".

Well, I'm sitting in Hurricane Sandy right now, so take that into consideration while you read my review... ;) Actually though, I haven't been affected too much by the weather here. It gets cold in the winter and hot in the summer, just like you'd expect on the East Coast. It doesn't inhibit going to class or leaving campus and it's nothing to worry about.

There is limited parking on the outskirts of campus and it is very expensive ($800/semester). The plus side of the situation, however, is that we live in Boston and unless you work outside of the city, you really don't need a car.

Guys & Girls:
True, most girls are breathtakingly gorgeous and a huge chunk of guys have the bodies of athletes, but the vast majority of students here are also so poorly educated it is an abomination. I have rarely encountered so many cold-hearted, snobby, rude and impolite people in my entire life. I rarely ever hear anyone say please or thank you, and most people look disgruntled most of the time. Good luck smiling at anyone unless they think you're worthy of being smiled at. Seriously, being at least polite is not a difficult thing to do, but at NU it seems like a challenge. Thankfully there is a minority of well-raised students.

There definitely is less of a presence in Greek life because the school is in the city. Yes they hold events, but the majority of the school is not part of the Greek life, and you're not considered definitely missing out if you don't partake

Professors vary in a spectrum in terms of how passionate they are and how much they care about students. I know some professors favor certain people in class, or miscommunicate with students. Every department ranges in good and bad professors.

Drugs aren't prevalent. Drinking is always talked about when parties are the subject. The worst is the smoking on campus, even if there are restrictions on campus. It's not enforced at all.

The T service is very convenient and quite cheap. Most of the lines are frequent and well distributed. As soon as you get the hang of it, it is simple and quick. Most places are also within reasonable walking distance.

The parking is available and efficient, easy to set up and find spots. When lots are reserved for parents (as in moving days) notices are sent out well. The only trouble is that it is quite expensive for a semester, around 800$. however this is standard for the city area and the consistency makes it a trustworthy investment that you can count on.

If you are a good student or athlete Northeastern will take care of you. Decent amount of money given in aid. Very helpful.

Public transportation is very good in Boston. There are two subway stops on campus, making it easy for students to get to where they need to go. One of the stops is also a starting and ending location for many of the bus routes in Boston. During move-in and move-out, there are plenty of taxis available to take students to and from the airport, which is only about a fifteen minute ride from campus. The main bus and Amtrak terminal is about thirty minutes from campus via subway, and can provide transportation to major cities all along the East Coast.

Very Diverse and Accepting – We are a very diverse campus, and that includes both international students and different local racial and socioeconomic groups. I hear languages other than English being spoken all over the place. The campus is also tremendously open towards students of different sexual orientations.

NEU is an up and coming university. We're already 56 in the national rankings and moving up. We have the top co-op program in the country. Our professors and advisors go out of their way to help you as long as you show initiative. It's the best place to be if you're willing to put in the effort. If you slack, you're profs will know it. Do you're best and you'll do great.

The student center was remodeled this summer, the dorms are great for the most part and most class buildings are great too. There are a few buildings on the older side, but nothing is dilapidated. For the most part, the university is very well kept!
College Senior 2012-10-10T05:13:40Z
It's who you know and how much you put yourself out there. If you don't communicate, it'll seem bland but once you meet people there are ALWAYS parties. NEU is a pretty dry campus so the parties are always off. If you're into to fratty scenes, hit up the MIT parties. If you like chiller places, just make off campus friends. There are plenty of clubs to choose from if you're 21+. A couple if you're 18+

so many choices around campus its dizzying, all cost ranges including a Hungry Husky truck on campus the curry student center is brand new and has lots of options off campus there is Red Mango frozen yogurt an ethiopian restaurant, and many other ethnic cuisines. Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Star Market are also close by.

College of Professional Studies was great for working adults with the success coach, online classes, weekend classes and a campus close to a major transit line.

I didn't do any athletics and they just lost their football team.

I did have a professor lie about when I submitted an exam even when I provided email backup no one budged. Also same professor and major refused to let me substitute a course to graduate which ended up in me waiting a whole year for the course to come around again so I could graduate.

It really depends on who you are looking for, but there are definitely "those girls" if you're willing to look around.

I basically walked right in. I'm a transfer student, so I knew what I was getting into, and helped a lot. But the staff is very friendly and always welcome new and excited faces
Sorry, there are no reviews.
