What Students Are Saying

2.79 Average Rating
Northeastern has a very comfortable environment. Teachers that you don't even have will ask you about your day and classes, they'll even offer any help that you would need. As well with the students, everyone is very talkative and welcoming.

I love Northeastern Illinois, especially the Carruthers Center for Inner-City Studies (CCICS) (The Center). This campus is located in the historical community of Bronzeville on the South Side of Chicago. The main campus is ok, but it doesn't in my opinion touch the CCICS information and history wise, just my opinion.
