Big enough to boast a something-for-everyone lineup of attractions and activities yet small enough to feel like a home, Boston is a great city in which to live, work and play. Numerous cultural and entertainment destinations are within walking distance of Northeastern’s campus, including Symphony Hall, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Fenway Park.
With the T running right through campus, students have easy access to downtown, where they can enjoy the lush greenery of Boston Common, shop on bustling Newbury Street or relive history while walking the Freedom Trail, which encompasses historic landmarks such as the Paul Revere House and Bunker Hill Monument. Boston’s vibrant (and growing) culinary scene is a foodie Mecca, including everything from three-star Michelin destinations and farm-to-table restaurants to diverse ethnic eateries and food trucks.
Boston is a goldmine of professional opportunities for those studying law. Northeastern students have completed co-ops at the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, the US Department of Justice, the American Civil Liberties Union and a host of leading businesses and law firms.
