Guys & Girls:
As a southern girl coming to the north the level of hospitality is different, but you can always count on a gentlemanly foreigner to hold the door open for you, while all the other boys tend to walk through and let it swing in your face.

International Village – While I loved having my own dorm room and only having to share a bathroom, International Village sometimes felt like a hotel more than a college residence hall. It also was hard meeting new people as a freshman because all the other freshman lived across campus. I also wished the dining hall in IV would stay open later. Other than that IV is equipped with everything you need: a gym, 3 laundry rooms, vending machines, a dining hall, and class rooms in the basement.

24 Hr Library! Snell Library at Northeastern University is a big facilty with four floors. The higher you are the quiter and more focused you will be in your studies. With a school I.D., the library is open for 24hrs. That means a lot of good studying to getthem A's!!!

Health & Safety:
Safety at Night – The safety there is okay. I go to school in the evening, at night there is a lack of security. This is bad because the school is located in the heart of boston where crimes of rape are easily done on college campuses.

Co-op means better chances for a job which is so important in this economy.

Great Location – Northeastern's campus is located in the heart of Boston which means there is so much to see and do all around you. However,the campus itself is well-contained and is one of the safest campuses in the area.

Its warm in Boston for four to six weeks, then it gets cold and it never stops being cold. I'm from the South and I nearly applied to transfer schools because I hated the winter weather here so much. It really affects my mood and my drive to get anything done.

I Am a Scholarship Student – There are a ton of options, but one of the worst parts of living in Boston... HOUSING IS RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE.

Love My Macbook – I have my own printer, so I never use the campus printing system though I hear it is a pain in the ass. Wireless is great, most of the time. I think I would have had to rip my hair out had I not had my own computer and printer.

Facilities, Intramural, School Spirit – The athletic facilities are wonderful and well-kept. For those who aren't recruited to be varsity athletes, there are also a variety of intramural and club sports to participate in. The school spirit for hockey is really fun, and then games are great social activities to participate in.

Reasons for Choosing a College – I like my school because of the co-op program, but I am starting to realize that I could've done some amazing summer internships had I just been out of school in May and able to work June-Aug. (With co-op, I don't start summer until July, so I miss out on all the summer internships).
I enjoyed my time at NEU, but it wasn't anything amazing. I have fond memories of Mission Hill parties, fun classes and lots of chances to figure out my career path with the co-op program. I was also able to live in NYC for a year for co-ops and then Italy for a semester for my study abroad.

It's fun when you live on campus because there are lots of parties and bars to go to. Once you become 21, though, everyone just goes to the bars and parties are only pre-games. The clubs in Boston aren't that great, but it's really just all about the bar scene.

There are a lot of options available for the Entrenepeurship program - such as interesting courses, co-ops related to start-ups and study abroad/dialogue of civilizations programs. I just wish I knew about them earlier on at my time at NEU.

Huge Variety – Being in Boston alone guarantees a huge variety of restaurants to visit, with food from all over the world. If you're new to Boston, you will always be able to find a new place to eat, whether it is pizza down the block at Cappy's or Indian food in Allston, which is a short T-ride away.

Well, there's the T which is the easiest and most convenient way to get around the city. Getting around the campus itself is very simple since the campus isn't that big and it isn't very hard to get around. The T only costs $1.70 to ride so it's very cheap. There's also buses and many students use bikes. With this all in mind, I'd say that transportation around campus and around the city is very easy, simple and cheap.

Well the campus has a strict alcohol policy on campus but students are careful. I guess the key is to not get caught. If you're sneaky enough, then it's fun and easy but when you get caught, you really pay the consequences.

Campus Life – Life on campus is very exciting. Almost all of the residence halls are at a very high standard and very comfortable. The social atmosphere is great and people feel very welcomed. As far as cost goes, it doesn't make a difference for freshman but for upperclassmen, there are options for housing and some options are much more inexpensive than others. It's nice to have the options to live in a cheaper dorm and save some money, and the cheaper dorms aren't bad at all. I live in one right now and I don't want to move out! I want to keep living here for as long as I can! :)

My school's co-op program has provided me with work experience that is much more impressive than any other college grads I know. Right now, while you are looking at schools, you may think that a fifth year or spending some of your summer at school is weird, but trust me, I would not change anything in my program! Plus, being in Boston allows hands-on learning at museums, planetariums, and other cultural attractions.

Rain, Snow, sunshine and wind, you never know what you're gonna get. Not too bad, especially if you're used to it.

From pizza to fine dining, the Northeastern University area has plenty of options for off-campus dining. Try Boston House of Pizza (or BHOP) for some of the greatest pizza in Boston. It's cheap, nearby, and participates in the HuskyCard program of NU. Uno's, Panera Bread, and others are located close by. As a personal opinion, I love Thai food and there are around 4 Thai places right nearby. It's awesome.

I received a full tuition scholarship to Northeastern from a program that I participated in for five years (through middle school and high school). I'm required to live on campus because of the scholarship so the least they could do was pay my room and board (or at least part of it) because my family really cannot afford it due to medical bills, but they stated that according to my parent's EFC my family could pay it so I did not receive aid for room & board.
Recent Alumnus 2011-04-12T11:59:56Z
There are a lot of really good restaurants on campus that accept the Northeastern University Husky Card for discounted dining. There is a large variety of restaurants that serve a wide range of food depending on your tastes.

Curry Student Center – The Curry Student Center is an area for Northeastern students to hang out in. It has different restaurants and is attached to a club/bar for 21 and over students. The building is always spotless and there are plenty of spaces with comfortable seats for students to relax. The only thing I do not like about it is the fact that anyone (non-students) can come in to the student center and use the facilities that we as students pay for.
Recent Alumnus 2011-04-07T13:47:38Z
There is a large scene, but it's a mature scene. If you generally don't want to be in it or around it, there are plenty other ways to have fun and not feel the pressure.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
