They won't let students take certain courses if they are not in that major such as pharmacy and business. Other than that like soemone else mentioned. The academic departments do not communicate well. There are only some programs in this school that are not bad the rest are just....they restrict you from classes you want to take and the registration process is a mess. Other than this if you want to go to this school. The dorms are also in very low quality. So better off if you can stay off campus. Bad curriculum.

I attended Northeastern University for four years completing two co-op programs. The experiential education is definately a plus and has helped me immensly. However Northeastern is extremely difficult to navigate as there seems to be no communication between departments and can be frustrating to try to get classes arranged and requirements set for graduating or engaging in different projects. The intense focus on experiential ed has left somewhat of a gap in the academic areas while the university looks to persue an image rather than a well integrated academic and experiential system that allows students to learn both in and out of the classroom. Unfortunatly most of teh responsibility to make this happen rests in the hands of individual professors many of whom take it on but with the increase in graduate student teachers this became less and less over my time at NU.

I left NU feeling that they did not meet the expectations that I had on what university level classes would be like.

In addition during my time at Northeastern I spoke with many of the people who work in the service positions on campus. Most are contracted out (as is the case in most schools) however Northeastern has routinly refused to work with the contractor to meet the responsibility they have to pay these workers a decent wage and provide them with adequate benefits and a safe work environment. In this aspect NU falls to the bottom in wages, benefits and support of workers when compared to all other Boston area schools.

My sister comes to this school she is almost about the graduate and she is so excited they have treated her with great respect and they seem very nice to her. She said it does cost alot to come here but that it is worth it. They help you get a job when you are done. the professors here have helped my sister in many ways and supported her.

Northeastern is renowned for its co-op program above all else. It is such a great program, that graduates for a full 1.5 years experience upon graduating from the University. In terms of activities and facilities on campus, NEU has more than you could ever want in terms of gyms, places to eat, places to study, and things to do. Their student activities budget is enormous, which makes it easy for them to bring big name concerts/lecturers/comedians and many other activities to campus.

PROS: Co-op, facilities, campus activities
CONS:

Northeastern university is another fantastic school located in Boston. It has a gorgeous, sprawling campus that can be classified as an urban campus, but seems like the campus of a suburban college. The academics are fantastic, and the student activities are wonderful. There is plenty of transportation available, so having a car on campus is not a necessity.

The only bad thing is the price tag. Be sure to apply for all financial aid possible, unless you've hit the lottery. But, the education you receive is well-worth the price.

PROS: great location, awesome campus, phenomenal academics, terrific activities
CONS: price

I attend a different university, so this is a perspective from another part of boston. I hear nothing but great things from the people who attend NU. Though their hockey team is not as good as BU's, their 5 year program far exceeds its title. It is a great opportunity for those who cant wait to be trained for the real working world!

The Boston campus has its own stop on the green line, making it easily accessible. The many campuses allowmore students to be taught and be able to attend the school easily. It is also located in a location that has many museums and schools.

Well, it's pricey (about 36k a year now), and there's quite a bit of run around on campus when trying to get paperwork done (we call it the NU Shuffle), but I wouldn't have gone anywhere else. It's a beautiful campus, and has tons of activities/clubs, good dining hall food, a GREAT gym (well, a few of them), and is in the perfect location. I recommend NOT living on camnpus after the first 2 years - off-campus housing is much cheaper.

I can't really sum up a 5-year education here, but it really is what you make of it. You can spend the whole time alone in your room and be unhappy, or you can go join a club and meet new friends. If you have specific questions, ask them on the Northeastern livejournal (just google it).
