The Bull on Northeastern University

Northeastern-UniversityLocation: Boston, Massachusetts (224 miles from Montclair)
# of Undergrads Attending: 15,905
Percent Accepted: 38%
Most Popular Majors: Business/Management/Marketing, Accounting, Biology, Engineering, Criminal Justice Studies

What I Liked:

  • The career-oriented co-op program was really interesting. Before graduating, students will complete several internships or co-ops and will gain experience in the workforce in the field they are most interested in.
  • Northeastern offers many outreach opportunities creating a truly rewarding aspect of the University.
  • The Northeastern students I came across went out of their way to be friendly

What I Didn’t Like:

  • there is not much of a campus
  • the buildings are all very modern
  • When attending the info session, there was not a traditional presentation of Q & A with university students/an open discussion. Instead we viewed a Powerpoint and iMovie highlighting the University’s assets, and providing an overview in a very polished way. I found this too impersonal.
  • Additionally, I got a very “tech-y” vibe. Northeastern is definitely embracing technology – touch-screen walls in the info-session room. I prefer a bit more of a traditional college-tour vibe.

Seems like a great college for… aspiring entrepreneurs. I can see young-business moguls blossoming here. Those looking to jump-start their careers and enter into the job market right after college would fit in at Northeastern.
Something unexpected was… that former vice presidential candidate Michael Dukakis is a professor!
