Hi. I'm Alice of a first year student at Northeastern. I'm a health science major on the premed shock. I just Northeast I should go with Eastern because I would like the location. I really enjoyed looking at the benefits of the program because I thought it would be a great way to earn some money while I was in college and also be an experience for the future. What is the student climate like? I think it depends on which groups who decided to associate yourself. I think in general, Northeastern is very strong in academic. So a lot of people care a lot about their academic life. I feel like in my personal experience, the Asian American community is a big part of it. Uh, yeah, because there's a lot of Asian American clubs were here right now in the Asian American Center present Yeah, and I feel like, um, it's a generally pretty positive environment. There's always like since you, since it's such a lot you have since the specialized school, Um, there's a lot of people that you could me and, um, school student body is really very diverse. What are some stereotypes about Northeastern students, and how true are they? Qo off. What is the academic climate like, really, I think, like, uh, compared to high school at least, like it's much is a much better climate for me personally, because, like teachers are much more understanding and like, they're more likely to give you. If you have a good reason to, they will give you an extension on your assignments. If they got, it's just more flexible on you can, um, have more authority over your own schedule. Some pros and cons, I would say definitely a pro is that it's in the city. Uh, I really enjoyed that coming from the sub groups. Uh, because like here, there's like a lot of opportunities. Uh, if you want to get involved in things off of campus or on campus all the same like there's always plenty of, um, different, like volunteer activities for different, like cultural events that you could involve yourself in housing. Uh, Northeastern does like a lottery system for housing, which is understandable because you want everyone to have an even chance. Uh, but the way it's hard to explain if you haven't gone through the system. The way in which hasn't selection for second uses set up is really stressful on DH. Inefficient? Yes, she's not. There's different types of living arrangements so you can have, like, apartments. You can have studios, or you could just have, like, a ah, sweet or like a traditional living style, A temp of college accommodation. Uh, we try to go for, um, uh, living space with a kitchen. That was quite difficult because those air, like, obviously really high demand as if you have a kitchen, you don't need to go on a meal plan and you can make your own. You can make your own food wish everyone loves what makes Northeastern different from others. Well, I mean, I could see the carpark program, but like I said that many times already, Um, I think, uh, it's really interesting campus because it's kind of like embedded in the city and, like, not kind of secluded. Wherever you go is like you are in Boston. Uh, I definitely tries to emphasize their experiential learning opportunities. They have, uh, dialogues abroad. Uh, over the summer. So there's a code like dialogue, civilizations, uh, various countries. Or you could go to different countries and, like, you know, absorb the culture. What advice would you give your seeing yourself? My series goes up. E. I mean, this is going to sound really pessimistic. As they told some senior friends that I have in high school, um, there's nothing you could do. Thiss why There's nothing you can really do s o instead of trying to, like, freak out, just like enjoy your senior year as it is. Um, And like, don't don't like freak out over the decisions that you could have made about your high school life because I mean, like, it won't really change anything. It'LL just make you more stress by worrying about it.
