Northeastern Illinois University Reviews
Cause of Covid 19 most of my classes are remote but over all my experience has been good. There were a few things I think they can approve on when it comes to online classes. For Instance, for online classes we use the Zoom app and sometimes the connection wouldn't be all that good, so I do recommend having a back up video chat app. Other than that my school is great!
My experience at Northeastern Illinois University has so far been good. It has been above my expectations. As a first-year student I have gotten support from a specific program; Proyecto Pa'lante and my advisor from that program has provided me with support. Also tutoring services were offered and available to me at any time also there are others services to support us and have provided us with. What I liked about Northeastern Illinois University is the diversity and the environment. Northeastern is small and simple campus that in which you may be able to find your classes easily and being able to have access to services easily. Also, if support is needed in any type of way you can have access to that. As a first-year student experiencing at Northeastern what I would like to see change is not allowing students to buy textbooks that costs more than $30.
Overall, nice school and quite diverse. The classrooms and facilities, buildings are old... Need some improvement of management of buildings and cafeteria in Student Union!
