Guys & Girls:
So from a diversity point as an international student (UK) I can safely say there is every type at northeastern. Allot of hot American guys, more so than the girls. but then it seems to switch around for the internationals, hot girls and mediocre guys. People (americans) complain a lot about there being too many indian or chinese, but really there presence is so insignificant by contrast to places like BU, BC, MIT well almost any other large college in Boston! A- because there are allot of hot kids here, but its not like ridiculous you do find some ugly folk also!

Its all good, quality and selection. But after a year of campus dining its too predictable and whilst there is literally NOTHING wrong with it you crave other stuff. but literally they have so much! pizza bar, panini bar, salad bar, burger stations everywhere, always something for everyone but i think you just get bored going to the same place X3 a day.

want to stay in college

You're in Boston so there is literally food everywhere. From fancy places to fast food to mom and pop pizza places you will never run out of new restaurants to eat at

The university has a wide array of computers to choose from. In the library alone there are numerous apples or dells to choose from.

Living in Boston, a lot of your time will be spent in the cold. On the one hand ,it's kind of a pain to go to class, but there's also so much fun stuff to do in the winter. Ice skating, sledding, and more. I grew up in the snow, so it doesn't bother me, but for some people, living in the cold is an adjustment. That being said, when it's nice out (September/April) everyone hangs out on the quad or other outdoor areas.

The obvious choice of what distinguishes Northeastern is co-op, which gives students the opportunity to work full time in their fields while still in their undergraduate careers. This offers freedom but also a safety net of advisers and university officials to help you if there are ever any issues. Besides co-op, Northeastern has an astonishing amount of general experiential education opportunities. These include research (almost no one else lets you work in labs as an undergrad!), amazing study abroad opportunities (including special summer semesters abroad called dialogues), and service-learning (an integration of academic work and service in the community).

The lack of parking is more of a reflection on having a campus in the city. It's a nightmare to park anywhere in Boston, and the same is true of Northeastern. Be careful where you park because many students don't look at the signs (2 hour parking, resident parking only) and end up with tickets. If you want to park in a university garage, it'll be pretty expensive.

When you have freshman orientation and ask mentors about the party scene, they just say "oh, well, it will get better when you turn 21". But you don't believe it, because you've seen all of these crazy house party movies like Project X, so you're just like never mind, I'll find the way. But in fact, if you don't know the right people from MIT, Harvard, BU or BC - you will stay home all night long because party scene in this particular university actually sucks. You can go to Mission Hills and frat parties in other colleges but Northeastern never throws the right ones and that's sad guys. Nice college with great academics and awful parties. You fail, come again later

I received a good amount of Merit-Based financial aid, due to my application. Since then I have continued to receive a similar amount of aid through maintaining a high GPA. I would definitely advise getting to know your fin. aid counselor, because there are sometimes other scholarships which you may be eligible for but you are not aware of. In these cases having a financial aid counselor who knows you and is looking out for your interests can be a huge help.

Northeastern rests its education on a bedrock of experiential learning. The co-op program allows students to apply for jobs in their field and work from 4-6 months at a location. In my major international co-ops are extremely popular. I had an internship at an investigative reporting center in Bosnia (South East Europe). I lived in a foreign country where I did not speak the language for half a year (although the job was in English), learnt a massive amount about myself and the field, and came back with priceless memories and experiences.

As I near graduation, I look back more on the choices I've made to this point. If I were to go back and do it again, I would probably have included Economics or another more quantitative aspect to my studies, as I have found that many of my courses are highly theoretical and that some border on common sense. There is also the normal senior fear of finding a job, and what exactly I will do after I graduate. That said, I am happy with the choices I've made when it comes to internships/co-ops, and feel the major has served me well in finding good experiential education opportunities.

There is no special application process to apply as an International Affairs major at Northeastern. I've also changed to a combined (dual) major of Political Science and International Affairs, and the school offers multiple combined majors ranging from combinations with Economics, Social Entrepreneurship, and Languages Literatures and Cultures among many others.
If not entering the program as a Freshman there are certain minimum requirements including paperwork and being in good standing academically. More information available at: http://www.northeastern.edu/internationalaffairs/undergraduate_program/

The speech pathology graduate program is tough and anything below a B is considered failing, so studying and caring are important. We get to do outside placements which helps to get real world experience and can lead to job offers.

Parking is decent, there are usually always spots at any time of the the day, but the price for a pass for the semester is a bit pricey.
College Senior 2013-09-24T15:33:15Z
The school has a co-op program that provides work experience that is much more impressive than any other college grads. 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.
College Senior 2013-09-24T15:31:25Z
I speak from a Graduate school level and not from the undergraduate level. The curriculum is rigorous and the professors are tough, but helpful and want you to do well.

Northeastern has a wide variety of things to do and places to go. The athletic facilities are great, there are a lot of food options, the library is a great resource, and there are always student activities going on. It's also located in the heart of Boston so there are many things surrounding the campus that are fun to do.
College Senior 2013-09-19T21:16:01Z
Very cold, windy, and snowy. Classes usually dont get cancelled unless the weather is really bad.
College Senior 2013-09-19T21:14:42Z
Not many choices nearby and the ones that are there dont have a good variety

The early weeks of the semester are a beautiful transition from summer to fall but fall quickly turns into an unbearably cold winter which does not end by the end of the spring semester.

When I applied to Northeastern, I applied as an Economics major...fewer females in Economics...but I was actually interested in it at the time.
But then I found out about the Business School and switched before my classes began. Then I found out about the International Business Program and switched into that.
I found it pretty easy, but I was accepted in 2010. Now it's much more competitive.
I'll also say the head International Business Administrations Counselor is awful!

I'm very specialized, very focused.
I wrote more about this in my previous post.
I find the Finance Department generally lacking, although the Real Estate course was amazing and I have great relations with my Accounting professor.
I find that Supply Chain Department is interesting, but can be much more developed.
As for the French Department, I found it really easy, but I started learning French when I was 6 years old.
I get to spend at least a year abroad, 4 months studying where my grades count and 6 months working.
I think finding jobs in my area of interest is a huge plus. Graduating with work experience. There are many business and self improvement based clubs as well as entrepreneurial aid.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
