Northeastern Illinois University Reviews

14 reviews
As a prospective graduate student, I found Northeastern Illinois University to be accessible to public transportation. The campus and its facilities are student-friendly. It stresses that students get the maximum learning experience. For instance, the library boasts long operating hours on week days and weekends. There are no shortage of studying areas in EACH building. For students who study late, there are shuttle buses that drop students off at all of the school 's campuses (CCIS and El Centro) and public transportation train stations. I appreciate that Northeastern Illinois University offers the college experience to each student, no matter where they live in the city.

Great commuter campus with affordable options for all majors! Offers cohort programs and on-campus programs for graduate students. Knowledgeable staff that wants to see you succeed.
My experience here at Northeastern, it showed me how a college life is really like. Students here seem to be very determined in their education and there are teachers who really care about the students and what they do. Diversity is very important to me and attending to Northeastern showed me what the definition of diversity is and how I need to take advantage of every opportunity possible.
