Evening classes and deciding on the method of instruction (online, asynchronous, hybrid, in person).

WHAT I LIKED

My experience with Northeastern Illinois University has been a positive journey. I started off at NEIU with limited knowledge of resources and navigation. I quickly adjusted to the teaching style of many professors. NEIU prides itself on its ethical diversity and inclusion. Although NEIU is diverse I still feel the students are not as open to socializing outside of peers and groups they socialize themselves with. Professors can be strict but do make an effort to help students understand and provide more time to help students understand concepts. The campus is easy to navigate through but can be a little overwhelming upon the first arrival. I highly encourage students to find out who their financial and academic advisor is because they will be the most important people to be in contact with until graduation.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like how the school set up the class registration system. It can be confusing for most people coming from a CCC campus. I also felt there isn't much communication among college students that differ in race or religion. I also feel that the lunchroom prices are too expensive.
