Guys & Girls:
Everyone Looks the Same – Basically if you wear leggings, a pair of uggs, and a hollister sweatshirt you will get along just fine here! But for those people who do enjoy dressing themselves for the part, being different is accepted and praised! You might be stopped every now and then if you have an item on that gets the attention of an admiring onlooker. In terms of good looking men and women on campus, you will find your cousin Its and Ursulas but it all depends on what your looking for. Variety is available and even if you don't see what you like, there are always men and women in surrounding areas that will spark your fancy.

Up & Down the Huntington – Northeastern is located in the heart of Boston's ethnic community. Huntington Avenue, which is one of the main streets in Boston, houses an array of wonderful restaurants ranging from pizza, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, West Indian, India, and many more other options. It is almost like taking a tour of the world for a reasonable price. Of course it does depend on what part of town you do venture, that is where the price of food will increase but you will almost never leave a Bostonian restaurant unsatisfied. Many of these establishments strive to please their customers and if not, you have the option of not returning!

NU often brags about it's top-notch faculties, and it has all the bragging rights available. Just a brief look at the gym and the halls prove it.

Very Expensive – As Boston is not an example of cheap city, housing in the city costs a lot. There are, however, many ways to make it less so, like having several roommates. But despite the cost, it's great to have more freedom!

It's a College – Drinking is popular, as at most college campuses. Strick rules exist if you're caught 3 times underage but its pretty difficult to get caught if youre smart. Same goes with drugs, although, drinking is definintely more prevalent.

Best College Town – Boston is so much fun, a very young city. There are parties on campus but going out in the city is better. Bars are awesome and there is so much to do...shop, sitesee, visit museums- northeastern students can use the museum of fine arts for free-, fenway park is right down the street...its an amazing city

Students aren't too involved with Northeastern varsity sports. Hockey is the main sport which is well attended and the Beanpot is an exciting tournament each year involving Boston area schools. Other than that, sports exist for the athletes. Athletic facilities are very nice, with a separate gym devoted to student athletes. Club and intramural sports are very popular and well provided for. Club sports get scheduled time on varisty fields and are supported by the school via rental vans and equipment.

Everything Is Covered – Northeastern University has everything you could want. Theres 2 gyms racquetball courts,a roller hockey court, 2 basketball courts and a track between the two of them. Library is 24/7, intramurals have anything you could want. The student center is also a great place to get food or study.

Every Mode Available – Everything is very accessible whether it's via walking, the T (train), bus, cab, or car. Some things might be a pain to get too if it involves a lot of switches on the T or something similar to that, but overall, it is not too difficult to get wherever you are trying to go.

It's All About Co-Op – Needless to repeat what has bee said a thousand times before, but co-op really is the keystone of the univesity.

Rapidly Growing – I notice how a lot of people view Greek life at NU as small, negligible and dull. I personally feel as if it is now everywhere, extremely noticeable and almost something that is hard to live without. Almost 50% of people i know are involved in Greek life, which indicates an impressive Greek population. The demand for Greek membership has been skyrocketing in recent years.

Poor Quality Freshman Dorms – For all the amount students pay, most freshman dorms could be at least decent. The vast majority of freshman dorms are even disgusting or tiny.

It is beautiful in the summer and fall times. Once Winter hits it can get brutal. Snows and the cold can kill you....bring your winter boots and coats!

NU has a very diverse community. It is home to people all of the United States as well as the rest of the world. However, people tend to stick to ethnic groups that they are apart of. The gay community is very accepted at this school as most students are liberal.

Not to Many People Have Cars. Not many people have cars here at NU because we are in a city. However of the friends that do have parking their only complaint is the price of the parking per semester. If you have a parking permit you can park at any of the garages at NU.

There is tons of parties Friday and Saturday nights. From sports to frat parties to apartment parties there is always something to do. The bars can be hard to get into but once your 21 you are golden in the city of Boston. Hockey games are every week and it gives every student something to do.

I transferred here from a school in the middle of nowhere and the transition has been fantastic. The campus is beautiful as well as the facilities. The people are extremely nice here and the teachers are here to help. The dining hall is above par (we even have a sushi bar!!) I can't wait to co-op next semester!

Not Bad – You can pretty much get away with anything at Northeastern. The one flaw is that weed is decriminalized in the state of Massachusetts however if your caught by NUPD say goodbye to NU.

As a business major, i can only say that i am proud to be constantly challenged by my teachers and happy to use real world experiences to learn.

Needless to repeat it: Boston IS the college capital of America, if not the world! There's a lot do and everything's at hand's reach.

The grueling winters in Boston take a great toll on me and I find it hard to want to walk to class in icey, windy conditions!

Available but Pricey – Off-campus housing in Boston is definitely available at any time of the year, but beware! They tend to be very pricey units, even if they do not meet your standards!

Computer Labs – While the facilities are very nice they are not accomodating to the growing size of the student population. It is nearly impossible to find an open area during exam time.

Since day 1 in freshman yr., you get real world experience by making a business plan for a business where you can help them improve revenue...This is just great!

Don't Get a Car – While a car can be really convenient, it's not really worth it since finding parking is harder than finding a well in a desert. You need a permit that you need to pay for if you want to be able to park in the residential areas or in the school garages. It's still a hassle if you ask me. Public transportation will get you to most places you want to go.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
