I attended Northeastern University’s Welcome Day for admitted students yesterday morning and it was very informative. It was a specified information meeting for those who were accepted to the College of Arts Media & Design. The Dean of the college, Xavier Costa, and two graduating students did a fantastic job summarizing the college and all of its possibilities. It’s obvious that it’s a very flexible program and caters specifically to students. Instead of just answering “it depends” to every specific question like most institutions would, the faculty members and staff went into as much detail as possible to make their guests as comfortable as possible.
The buildings are all state of the art beautiful pieces of architecture spread throughout the western side of Boston. The second informational session I attended was for Financial Aid assistance and it was very informative. The speaker was very articulate and did a great job in generalizing the complicated and grueling process of paying for college. I’m happy to say that I will be attending the college next fall for possibly the next five years and yesterday’s program only solidified the perfection (for me at least) of the college. I highly suggest if you’re searching for a well rounded liberal arts college in the heart of the city, give Northeastern a try, they’ll welcome you like you’re already part of their society.
