Northeastern State University Reviews
Very cute and lovely campus with beautiful scenery. Everything is within walking distance so it is very easy to get to places. As well, everyone is so friendly and polite. Professors are really nice and easy to talk to. They seem very understandable, so just communicate with them and you'll be okay. In addition there are a lot of student resources available like tutor sessions, on-campus counselors and much more. There are tons of clubs and organizations for students to join as well. This is school just has so much to offer! Highly recommend!
I love NSU so much! The community and campus life is not like any other and I couldn't have found a better community anywhere else. This campus is beautiful, so beautiful I have chosen to give tours on campus to visitors and I love showing off my school. It is not too big, so being able to see people on campus by chance is very big and the classroom sizes are perfect! Yet I would like to change the greek life stigma that has been created through people that are higher up, and would like for that matter to be addressed in a different way other than what is being used currently.
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.
