Northeastern has NU Pride, which is the group for bisexual, lesbian, and gay students. Being gay is no big deal at all at NU or in Boston.
Northeastern students tend to lean toward the liberal end of the spectrum, though you can certainly find Republicans among the student body, as well. The NU Democrats and NU Republicans are two student groups that are very active around campus and are particularly visible around elections.
Northeastern is an expensive school, but the vast majority of the student body receives financial aid. Some students are really poor, and others are astonishingly rich. Chances are, you'll find someone from every economic group.
Most Common Religions
Northeastern has its own Spiritual Life Center (SLC), where many religious groups hold meetings. Yoga sessions-which are sometimes offered for free-are frequently taught at the SLC, as well. Nearly every religious group is represented on Northeastern's campus.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Barkada, Cape Verdean Student Association (CVSA), Haitian Student Unity, NU Hillel, Hindu Vedic Vision Society (HVVS), and Latin American Student Organization (LASO) are just a few of the popular minority clubs on campus.
