The best thing about Northeastern is the opportunity to be around other driven and ambitious students. Everyone here has a goal and is doing everything they can to get there. It is motivating to be around so many students looking to get somewhere fast.
The worst thing about Northeastern is that students are constantly leaving for co-ops or study abroad programs so student life is not nearly as fulfilling as I've seen at other schools. You will not get a traditional experience at Northeastern.
Yes, I value the experiential education and options that Northeastern gave me and I feel prepared to enter the workforce in my field. However, I wish I did get to have the all-American college experience that my friends at other schools got to have.
