Northeastern State University Reviews
I am currently a freshman at NSU, go Riverhawks! So far from my experience I’ve noticed that NSU is on a come up. I like how they try to get everyone involved in as many activities as possible or to even create your own. If it wasn’t for the different sports teams here the school probably wouldn’t be slightly diverse as it is now. Everyone here is very friendly even down to faculty. Northeastern is in a very small city, but there is plenty to do if you’re creative or there’s surrounding cities. The party life is ok i guess. If you’re just now starting to do parties then it’s for u, but regular party people no it’s kind of lame unless you know how to get a party jumping. Also the food here is ok in the cafe. If you don't like it they have chick-fil-a and other food places around campus.
I just began my college experience at Northeastern but I can honestly say it's been the best time of my life so far, I've met new people and connected to them through academics and through our social lives. It's a beautiful campus and the experience is overall amazing. The rich history surrounding the campus and it's land is my favorite part! Knowing the history of the ground I'm walking on and the students from the past makes the experience so much better. I'm thankful that I've been accepted and able to be a part of a campus and community as great as this.
I really like Northeastern State University because of the people, atmosphere, and learning experience. They have lots of opportunity at this college and lots clubs and organizations to get involved in. The people there are so welcoming and really strive to get better the college based on students opinions. This college values your opinion and continues to make you feel comfortable. The learning experience is great as well the teacher staff the pushes you to do your best. This college brings in a lot of diversity and that is a major factor in a good college. That is how i feel about Northeastern State.
