Northeastern State University Reviews
The advisors are extremely helpful, particularly in helping me transfer from another University! Everything was fully explained from degree programs, to enrolling in classes as well as various other student aids they have available (which includes a food and clothing pantry, on- campus family housing, counseling/ grievances services and a great deal more). My professors have been top notch- intelligence, expertise and empathetic to their students. My only complaint is their narrow selection of graduate programs.
It is a great campus! I love going here because it is not too big, but it is not to small either. The staff on campus are overall helpful and they will try to help you the best they can. Safety on campus is awesome! If you do not feel comfortable walking at night to your dorm or the library, you can call campus police and they will give you a ride. I would change about the campus would be the dorms, they just built new dorms, but they have old ones that they do not use, and I think that is a waste of money and space.
NSU has always felt like home to me. Everyone on campus, including students and staff, are always so welcoming and kind. You will never feel out of place here. I am so excited to be a Riverhawk and attend NSU in the fall of 2018. NSU offers many opportunities for you to join clubs, Greek life, and even just get out in the community more. The atmosphere of the campus and the town in general are fun and very laid back. Come to NSU! You will not regret it!
