Northeastern University Graduate Reviews

As a graduate student at Northeastern University I had a wonderful time! I met so many new and interesting people from all around the world that I can most certainly call my friends! Professors were always very helpful and tried to explain everything to students in depth! The fact that it has the co-op program, allows students to put into practice everything that they have learned. Therefore, after the completion of any degree, most students have already jobs offers waiting for them.

I am a graduate student in Northeastern University. I have completed my 1st semester in the college of engineering, and have had a very wonderful experience. I have built solid relations with my professors. The professors are very helpful and always encourage their students to achieve more im their field, and are always approachable. Also the facilities provided to the students by the university like the library amd sports centers are awesome and have a very good atmosphere.
Also there are many student organizations in the university, which help the students on making connections and also help in the overall development of the students, so I urge you to join any one of the student organization.
Definitely geared towards undergraduates unless you are in Engineering, then there are slightly more resources for grad students. VERY expressive and the program is incredibly disorganized so not a great return on investment. The faculty are great but there is a serious lack of gender and racial diversity for a program focused on social issues and inclusivity.
