    Northeastern is a big school so the trick is to make it feel smaller. With the resources of a big school Northeastern is able to provide some great entertainers with Springfest being the largest show of the year. The Greek community at Northeastern is growing and I am proud to be a part of it. The only negative I would have here is the while Northeastern is awesome, it is undergoing some growing pains. You won't get the same amount of school spirit here as say a large southern school. As the school continues it's change from a commuter school to a global education leader I think the Northeastern pride will follow.

    It's a great environment, with tons of fun stuff always going around. People are friendly and helpful. And being right in Boston is great with so many restaurants, little cafes, shops, tourist sights, theaters, concerts, sports games, and anything else you can think of.

    Boston is an amazing city to live in. There is always something to do, both weekends and weekdays. Northeastern is in a great location in Boston, about a 15 minute walk from the Prudential and Newbury street, and about 10 minutes from Fenway. Whenever I need a break from classes, I am able to find some way to get away and clear my head. There are so many diverse and friendly people here as well, who always make meeting people interesting and exciting.
