"Northeastern University has grown a lot over the years. They have added many majors and reached out to the students to give them the best chance at the career they want. Their co-op program is the best and really helps you on your way to a successful career. I am on co-op now and while I do not necessarily see myself doing this exact job, I definitely love the environment and the company. I will be applying here again after graduation (in a different department). But without Northeastern's program (and available volunteer experience that's helped me get this co-op job), I wouldn't be where I am today. I am eternally grateful."

"Northeastern's co-op program provided me with experience and it was great for networking. Unfortunately the class sizes were large and many of the counselors on campus were not particularly helpful. Northeastern spends more money on flat screen TVS than things that their students actually need, but I did get a lot out of the experience. Northeastern is a good place for people that are going to work to grab opportunities."

"Northeastern University is a top notch university located in Boston MA. The education I received there both in the classroom and outside of the classroom is second to none. Their Co-op program prepares students for thier future careers in the best possible way. My experience and education allowed me to secure positions with #1 rated international companies like GE Capital where I beyond prepared to compete and excel above the rest. Further, due to my preparedness, I secured high level position with a #1 rated banking institution where I developed and successfully ran thier West Coast business portfolio operations and grew their program to a multi million dollar division with over 11,000 clients. I am now back at Northeastern to pursue my dual Masters degree in Finance and Entrepreneurship. I'm so excited to be back in the classroom at this university where I have the chance to learn from the brightest and cultivate my personal development and growth with the most diligent and strong platform and support network i could ask for as I venture into the next phase of my career/life, which will be running my own business. Thank you Northeastern University for surrounding and arming me with the tools required for success. I look forward to paying it back throughout my life in many ways."

"Northeastern University is great for its co op program feature. This was my main reason for choosing this university. It gave me much needed experience and helped me to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. While expensive I was able to subsidize costs through scholarships and on campus jobs. The location is great in that you have access to other colleges and universities. Diversity was  an issue during my time as I was often the only person of color in classes. However strong cultural groups and community helped with that."

"Northeastern University offers a 5 year program where, starting your third year, you work at 6-month coops that you must apply and interview for. This will help you improve your interview skills and boosts your resume for after graduation. Their study abroad programs are also very easy to apply for and relatively cheap. They offer summer semesters abroad and "dialog of civilizations" which are less than two months long and extremely fun. While the campus is small, Northeastern is located in Boston where it is surrounded by many other colleges and there are three train stops on campus that allows you to explore the rest of Boston. There are plenty of delicious food to eat and activities in the city to do. There are also a lot of bars and clubs to party at, and Boston's public transportation is easy, as well as the ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft."

"Northeastern has a wonderful program. The co-op opportunities are what made the difference when I was applying for a job. Having a year and a half of experience under by belt really set me apart from others hired right out of school and helped accelerate my career. I continue to stay in touch with the alumni network. My education prepared me very well for higher education as well."

"Northeastern's co-op program was an invaluable opportunity to gain work experience which enabled me to mare clearly define my career goals and learn what it was actually like to work in my field. It also gave me contacts in the biotech industry before I even graduated and allowed me to begin to build a reputation and get started on my career path before I even graduated. I still rely on contacts I made and experiences I had during my co-ops at Northeastern in my career and education today."
