Few and Far – There are very few scholarships that are offered. Looking outside of the University is a must.

Co-Op So Worth – No matter how much you have to pay to go here it'll all be worth it when you have your job lined up come graduation day.

Guys & Girls:
So Many Hotties – Lots of guys around campus to look at though it can be challenging ever seeing them again

The best thing for a student in university. It lets you see what you will be doing once you graduate and allows you to build a diverse resume without jumping from job to job once you graduate. It can be the deciding factor as to which direction you take within your major.

You really don't need a car when you are in classes there is public transportation (orange and green line) on campus and buses, most things are within walking distance. You only might need a car if you are on co-op.

It rains in Boston all of the time! We just put on a raincoat and rain boots and go to class. It does not affect anything too much. But, when it rains we do not go out because the parties normally get cancelled if it is pouring rain.

Better at the Surrounding Schools – Northeastern does not have many parties themselves. There are 2 frats that regularly have parties and a lot of clubs throw fundraising parties. Often, we go to MIT or BU to find a good frat party. The walk is not too bad, so the nightlife is pretty nice.

Average Sports – Although the sports teams are not amazing, the tickets are always available to get. The hockey team has played at The Garden 3 times this year. The environment of a sports team is nice- it feel like a family because every body knows the cheers and everyone has fun at the games together.

Not Really Existent – There aren't really very many frats and the ones that do exist are usually a long walk from the main campus. Frat parties often charge for girls to get in, which I find odd.

Restaurants are everywhere. You can find any type that you want within walking distance or a short T-ride.

Lots to Do – Boston is a huge college town- always lots to do with people from other schools. Also, always concerts/shows happening.

Take the T! There are a couple lots where you can park starting Sophomore year as long as you buy a parking pass, but having a car on campus is unnecessary and expensive since you have the subway. The only time you would need a car is for your co-op job.

Global Experience on Campus – There are students from all states, countries and walks of life but sometimes we do have our fair share of snobs. You are bound to meet someone from any of the 50 states or any country around the world.

From Freshman to Upperclassman – Housing at Northeastern is great because Freshman year you meet everyone in traditional residence halls. But starting Sophomore year you are considered upperclassmen and you choose from tons of apartment and suite style residence halls.

Cultural Experience – Northeastern is an extremely diverse campus. There are so many different people that you see on a constant basis. Since there are so many races, there is alway something going on. Whether it's events on campus or nearby, there is always something to do. I love it!

Very Well Mantained – The school does put a lot of effort into making sure the campus is updated, cleaned, accessible, and presentable

It Really Depends – I can only speak for the professors and advisors involved in engineering majors but it all depends on who you end up with. Some advisors are amazing and go above and beyond to help you while others have no business dealing with students. Some professors are helpful, detailed, and enthusiastic, while others are frustrating. Just do your research on the professors because the school has teacher evaluation surveys you can look through. If you can avoid the ones that suck please do. If you do get stuck with one you can't stand, go to the teacher's assistant for help or another professor that teaches that class

Info Commons, where most people go to use the computers has pretty updated computers and just put in a new printing system that makes printing alot easier. During certain hours of the day it does get crowded but if you walk around for a minute you'll spot someone leaving and can just take that spot. You can get wireless almost anywhere on campus but alot of the dorms (surprisingly the most renovated ones) do not have wifi

Health & Safety:
What You Would Expect – Boston has pretty much what you would expect the crime rate to be in a city. There are robberies and some break-ins but cops are usually patrolling especially on the weekends. And campus pd does respond pretty quickly

There are two metro stops right on campus which is very convenient but the cost does add up quickly. Cabs are also numerous but also expensive. Once it is warm enough, walking is definitly a better option.

Co-Op Is Priceless – Being in Northeastern's co-op program, I can't understand why it isn't the norm in every college and university. You learn enough in just the first 2 months of your first co-op to make the entire experience worth it. There are so many aspects of your field like terminology, types of people/personalities, common procedures, legal/contractual, etc., that you would never have picked up in a classroom setting. Having the co-op experience really widens the curriculum at Northeastern and made me, and I'm sure everyone, feel a lot better prepared for life after graduation. Plus, it's a great chance to get your name out there and build some pretty valuable references going into your career.

Very Accesible – We are right by the green line, and further onto campus is ruggles station which has the orange line and a million different buses. Both run pretty frequently. The bus(1.25) and train(1.70) fare is pretty cheap compared to where I live. BUT my only complaint is that trains and buses do not run all night so if your out late you better have a ride, cab money, or some comfortable shoes.
College Junior 2011-03-17T16:34:07Z
Very diverse people attend but the different groups of people tend to mix with people unlike them. It's very normal to walk through campus and see many different groups of people but people of similar backgrounds all stay together.
College Senior 2011-03-17T16:33:40Z
lots of parking, trains, buses and cabs everywhere
