Northeastern has a wonderful location convenient to both students living in the Boston area and working professionals. I spent lots of time in the library, the Dodge computer lab, and the lounge in Dodge.

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2018

Northeastern University is the best place to join to gain experience and knowledge for future success. They have several undergraduate and graduate programs that are incredible. The school prepares you thoroughly to approach all problems and have great critical thinking skills. There's also the ability to easily connect and converse with alumni and faculty. An education at Northeastern goes way beyond the classroom walls. There are incredible opportunities for undergraduate and graduate, hands-on, extensive research and there's a huge emphasis on interacting with the surrounding city of Charlotte. There is an endless range of activities, with something for everyone. I like the diversity of this school. Everyone you meet has a new perspective to introduce to you which carries through to fun, intellectual conversations all around campus. The school has a really great social vibe, as opposed to other schools where the competitiveness becomes suffocating. At Northeastern you can pursue several interests with a very flexible education path. I love the people, the atmosphere and the surrounding city.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

It is a rigorous program that takes a lot of self discipline. Time management is key. Course load is heavy and moves very quickly. Instructors are helpful and willing to work with your unique situation. Professors are well versed in their subject matter.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors at Northeastern University helped prepare me for my career in the Human Services field. I gained an abundance of knowledge that I have been able to apply day to day on my job. Not only did I gain a lot of knowledge from my professors, but I was also to learn a lot through peer interactions which included discussion boards and group assignments. Northeastern University try allowed me to broaden my knowledge base through its quality education.

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2017

The Physics program at Northeastern University is pretty by all standards. What I like in particular is that they're more willing now to give students the chance to take courses in different but related fields to strengthen the school's focus on interdisciplinary research. My advisor and the lab I work with are also pretty amazing when I step back to think about it. We're doing top of the line work on mathematical epidemiology that's being done in very few other places and I'm very proud of the work we're able to produce.

Degree: Homeland Security
Graduation Year: 2019

I have loved Northeastern University from the start. The application was free and my advisor was in constant contact with me. She even informed me of my acceptance before I received a letter. All the staff I have communicated with have been exceptional. The quality of education is second to none in my field. They work hard to provide co-op and internship opportunities so by the time you finish you not only have an education but also a little experience.
