Most Helpful Review for Northeastern University

I'm learning so much from Northeastern. I'm currently a psychology major and a music industry minor. I absolutely love it here because there is so many diverse majors and minors that I can do. One of the greatest things here is that I can always see my professors whenever I need to. They have small classes and large classes. There are always dedicated teachers willing to help you no matter what.

    A large research university that doesn't feel large due to the co-op cycle. Great for Science/Engineering, Health fields, Business, not necessarily arts and humanities, but they are definitely here. A huge variety of clubs and organizations to join.

    Northeastern provides a very supportive environment. As a freshman, you'll find that you have everything you need to transition into your time at college. Most importantly, Northeastern's co-op program is unmatched and in uncertain economic times such as these, it's important to know that you'll have assistance and support in starting a career.

    Northeastern is super diverse and there's tons of opportunity. It's normal to hear someone is working for Bose, The Boston Globe, or traveling the country with a student short-film competition. There's always professors or tutors available for extra help if needed.

    Northeastern has an excellent sense of community and immediately upon entering you feel right at home. The professors are helpful and they want to see their students succeed. The athletics and the multitude of on-campus activities give students a strong sense of school pride.

    Northeastern is a place for students who are prepared to face the ups and downs of living in the midst of a mid-sized city, while studying at a school that wouldn't win the gold medal of the Social Life Olympics, yet provides a quality education in a safe environment.

    Northeastern University is an excellent university in an excellent college town. It offers a program, called co-op, where students are able to gain valuable practical real world experience in addition to course work. Northeastern University recently earned a pot in the top 50 schools in the country and it is well-deserving.
