Boston College Town – Only visited twice so far, had so much fun on both visits

Grey Campus Borders – Because Northeastern is in Boston, unless in the dorms, the campus police are not very involved in any party or drinking incident. Can drink in dorms if conscious of noise, but if caught you WILL go to the disciplinary court which can be very strict. They are not looking to get kids in trouble just safe.

Not Huge but Present – Greek life at Northeastern is most definitely present but not necessary to have fun. There are no Greek houses so chapter occurs in the student center- making the whole greek organization come together each week. Not many greek parties but people in greek life definitely hang together.

The T Is How I Get to School – I live in Weymouth which is near Quincy and Braintree. I work for the commuter boat out of Quincy that goes into Boston, so I get on for free. But, even for any one looking to take it it's only 12 dollars round trip from Boston to Quincy or vice versa. On day's when it's raining or to cold to take the boat I take the red line to the orange line. It's faster than driving and cheaper. The downfall's are paying the 3-7 dollars a day for parking and the 59 dollars a month for the monthly T pass. Being a full- time student it's a tough price to pay.

I live at home so I don't know anything about the off-campus housing. I do know that the on-campus housing system is horrible. It's a lottery system, the worst idea with a school with lots of students. The picking started on February 16th by March 19th I was still unable to pick housing and by that time most of the housing was taken.

Computer Labs – Computer labs are usually packed during the semester.

Health Center on Campus – I tried to make an appointment at the Health Center at Northeastern and it took forever. They never followed up.

The professors at Northeastern University are great! They are very experienced in their fields and they provide wonderful advice if you seek it.

Permits cost hundreds of dollars for the parking garages and lots. The garages and lots are very close to campus. If you do not want to buy a permit, there is parking on the streets; however it is very difficult to find an open spot.

There Are Many Greek Sponsored Events – Frats sponsor events throughout the campus nearly every week, usually including free food. However, greek life does not dominate the social scene at all. Most people are not a part of it.

It Is a Diverse Community – Like most colleges, Northeastern has a very diverse commmunuty with people of all races and religions, and various states and countries. I have found it to be a very accepting community.

The single most amazing thing about this college. You will learn so much and have a spring board for your career (if not a job offer).

I Like It – For non locals, the weather is fresh. classes are close to housing to the snow isn't too bad and the there's an underground tunnel system to avoid the cold.

Good Enough – The food is fine, nothing bad but nothing amazing at most dining halls. The new international village (open to everyone) has alot of variety.

If You Are Into That Sort of Thing – There is always a party somewhere. The actual Northeastern campus does not really do sorority/frat parties. So, they are usually held in someone's apartment. Crappy beer is provided. Also, as long as a student is 18, then finding a club or bar to get into is not hard. Bars, clubs, parties, some kid's apartment are all usually within walking distance or just a T ride away.

No Coddling – Northeastern only guarantees 3 out 5 years of housing. All level of housing is at least average.

Most impressive quality has to be the public transportation- easy, safe, timely, affordable. Northeastern is at the center of it all. The Museum of Fine Arts is right next door. Harvard and Boston University (our sworn enemy) are also relatively close. School spirit is unrivaled. The reason being-- Northeastern University owns.

Once known as a relatively clean campus, NU is now one of the most weed-friendly schools in the country. I don't do drugs, but virtually everyone i know has smoked weed in the past year. Also, as time goes by, i hear more and more students talk about harder drugs.
Overall, girls seem to be resisting the trend, but pretty much 99% of guys smoke weed here.

A Lot of Options That Stduents Seem to Not Know About or Take Advantage of – Akin to BU, Northeastern is surrounded by quite a lot of great off-campus eateries, but students seem to not take advantage of them. Most students prefer to stick to the dining halls and some supermarkets in the area to feed themselves. This changes in the summer semesters for some reasons, as a lot of students switch from dining halls to off-campus places.

Awesome Place to Grow – Northeastern provided me with many channels and venues for growth and exploration during my 5 years. I've learned a lot about myself, tons of education information in my field of choice, got to explore and learn how to support myself in Boston, and feel all the more accomplished for it.

Wonderful Fitness & Gym facility. Athletics courts always in good shape and clean. Personal trainers, and many club teams to join.

Husky Pride – You go to any hockey or basketball game and you'll see nothing but red and black (unless there's a blackout game) and hear nothing but our good 'ol chants. The games are outrageous and we have tons of fun before and after them. Marino is one of the historic venues that the Boston Bruins first played at. We don't have football anymore, but that's alright...We got plenty of other sports teams to go see and cheer on.

Guys & Girls:
With over 15,000 girls and guys on campus, you're bound to find your ultimate hottie(s). Plus between all of the parties and social events on campus, it's really easy to meet new people all the time. If something doesn't work out, well, you go to a big school, so it's not like you'll be doing the walk of shame down university ave over here. Everyone here, is extremely chill and just down for a good time. All the Greek life members are sexy.

Amazing School With TONS of Opportunities!! I transferred to Northeastern after I spent my freshman year at a small university. I came here because I knew that going to a bigger school only mean't more opportunities and a better experience- inside and outside the classroom. From Greek Life to extracurricular activities to campus events, there is always something fun going on to get involved with. I honestly couldn't have been happier anywhere else. With the co-op experience and scholarships the university has given me, I am able to pay off my undergraduate debt while still being in school. What better way to gain professional experience before you get that diploma? Being on my first co-op now, I have been able to affirm that I still want to have a career path in law. In addition to regular co-ops (you can work anywhere in the U.S.) you can do an international co-op as well. You also have the chance to study abroad for a semester or go on short-term dialogues during the summer. Northeastern offers a Global Scholars Program which helps with either partial or full funding for the trip and additional expenses. The university is known for it's Five-Year Program, but also offers the Four-Year Option now. After being at NU, you'll be having the time of your life that the Five-Year just makes the most sense to have 3 co-ops, study abroad, etc. Plus, it sets you up better than any other schools without that co-op program for any graduate program. Last but not least, the campus is set in the heart of Boston's city life near many other colleges, Fenway Park, and several wonderful shopping places and restaurants.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
