Northeastern offers the ultimate urban campus: the green spaces and tree-lined pathways of a traditional college campus combined with the energy and diversity of a university set in the heart of a vibrant city. Start with more than 280 student clubs and organizations on campus, offering dynamic opportunities for cultural, recreational, intellectual, and spiritual engagement. Add the varied resources of cosmopolitan Boston at your doorstep, and you'll find life at Northeastern active, creative, collaborative, and just plain fun.
And we offer one more ingredient that makes a Northeastern education truly special. All of our students get out in the world, engaging in experiential learning through co-op, research, global study, or community service. When they return to class and campus—whether from work at a financial services office in downtown Boston or a pediatric clinic on the other side of the world—they elevate academic and student life in ways that you'll find nowhere else.
