What Students Are Saying

Northeastern is an incredible school. The professors truly want to see you succeed, the classes are far more interesting and engaging than I ever imagined they would be, and there is really a sense of community throughout the campus. From the amazing coop program to the University Honors Program to all of the clubs and activities in between, there is always something to do on campus, and, since the campus is the heart of Boston, the city truly is our playground.

Coming from Hawaii I thought there would be quite a culture shock, and that I might not fit in here in Boston, but everyone here has been incredibly friendly! The atmosphere at Northeastern is one of academic excellence, with particular emphasis on strong undergraduate programs. Whether you're looking to get into a research position right away, or just enjoying the co-op program (valuable beyond measure) and the academics, Northeastern has something for you.
