Best college city in the US!
College Freshman 2013-11-05T00:31:51Z
While the campus isn't big enough to garner it's own shuttles, we have three Boston T stops close to campus, four if you include the Symphony T stop. Buses run through all the time as well.

Guys & Girls:
The boys and girls are both incredibly attractive, tend to be quite smart and open-minded, especially in the social science circles. They're social, but also not averse to chilled nights. On the whole, they're comfortably dressed, yet still attractive.

There are plenty places for studying and hanging out.

Have to pay for parking every semester but if you waive to have to pay for parking if you choose not to use the student parking.

The city is crowded but the give you a bus pass that is an addition thing you pay for each semester.

I got a flu shot for free! They are very good at letting everyone have access to the same benefits.
College Student 2013-10-25T02:33:20Z
Not very prevalent- they don't have houses so they are not a very big influence on campus
College Student 2013-10-25T02:30:37Z
They do a good job of keeping us safe- they don't care what you're doing as long as you are respectful of others
College Student 2013-10-25T02:29:12Z
Small rooms, but great community and the dorms are nice enough- very good security

You can get anywhere you want super easily. There are several T stops around campus and the nearby area. A charlie card charges $2 a ride otherwise it is $2.50 per trip. South station is a T ride away and from there you can take a bus home or hop on a free shuttle to take you to the airport

Greek life is pretty average. It does not dominate the social scene by any means, but it is slowly becoming more popular. No one cares whether you are involved in greek life or not

I've had nothing but great experiences with campus housing. People like to complain about the lottery system and getting bad numbers but everyone's issues always seem to work out in the end. Our campus housing department is incredibly helpful and more than willing to work with you so that you can live where you want. I've had poor lottery numbers two years in a row and have ended up in West Village both times.

Campus dining is really nice at NU! Our three dining halls are Stetson East, Stetson West and IV. All three are great choices. In addition, you can use your meal swipes at Outtakes (a small grocery store on campus), Rebeccas (just do it) and even restaurants like West End in Curry. If you're smart about it, there's a lot of different options for everyday meals.

There are so many different races, nationalities and religions on campus. I think it's impossible for anyone to feel like they don't fit in here because there's all different kinds of students. At Northeastern, you won't be able to go a day without hearing different languages being spoken around campus.

Health & Safety:
While I never feel unsafe on campus during the daytime, there are definitely parts of campus I wouldn't walk around at night if I'm alone. Off-campus can also get sketchy pretty quickly depending on where you are.

Nightlife is a bit hard to find if you're under 21. Mostly, frat parties or off-campus apartment parties, but they sometimes get busted by the cops. There are 18+ clubs, but they can get sketchy. If you have a good fake ID, then you can sometimes get into bars off-campus. Make sure you have backup! If you're 21, then there are plenty of bars to go to. And of course, there's always OHE.
College Junior 2013-10-17T19:23:20Z
Pros: all four seasons, when it's hot sometimes there's a nice wind, sometimes there are snow days, pretty skyline
Cons: sometimes weather is extreme, very cold in winter, wind tunnels, a bit unpredictable
College Junior 2013-10-17T19:17:34Z
Pros: apartments are basically on or near campus, freedom of no proctors, can have parties, almost all apartments near campus house students
Cons: prices can be expensive, trash everywhere, apartment gets dirty easily, management isn't always helpful, almost all buildings are old, mice

We often joke that business majors are the favorite of the university. Our buildings are always kept up to date and in great condition, and our professors are generally really great. It's a pretty intense program content wise, but the work load isn't too bad since much of our course load is group projects. All business co-ops must be paid, and many students really enjoy the experience.

The campus is very compact- it only takes about 10 minutes to walk from one side to the other. As far as city transportation, the green line and orange line run right through campus, so access to either is very easy. Also, you can always get a taxi on one of the main roads.
College Junior 2013-10-15T16:41:03Z
There are only 3 dining halls on campus, all of which close pretty early. The food is generally better than that of other universities, although the selections are redundant and don't vary much from day to day. There are also places around campus that take meal swipes for breakfast and lunch which are awesome and convenient. It's definitely better to live off-campus and cook for yourself!
College Junior 2013-10-15T16:34:12Z
The academics at Northeastern are rigorous, and although some of the professors are brilliant, many are hard to understand and expect a high level of achievement. As an upperclassman business major, class sizes become very narrowed down so one on one interaction with professors is common, and group work is heavily utilized. The study abroad/dialogue programs are incredible, with opportunities to travel to nearly any country in the world. Obviously one of the major attributes of Northeastern is the co-op program, where students can get real world work experience while still in college.

Pretty fun when there are parties on campus. Otherwise easy access to city bars/clubs
Recent Alumnus 2013-10-15T01:49:43Z
Lots of nice green space despite city location
Sorry, there are no reviews.
