Northeastern University 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.
