Transfer from Wilbur Wright College

“Northeastern is special because it fosters a community where you can authentically be yourself. NEIU allowed me to chase my dreams and become the first in my family to graduate with a bachelor's degree.

The University shaped me into a more accomplished person and gave me the tools and support I needed to work on myself as a person, work on my mental and academic health, and form better study habits. The faculty and staff genuinely care about the students and want them to succeed, so they will go out of their way to help you reach your academic goals.

If you are a first-generation, Latinx student thinking about enrolling at NEIU, do it now! You can think of Northeastern as a second home. It's a place where you are cheered for your success, no matter how big or small. It's as though you've found your place on this Earth. You don’t feel like a second-class citizen. You feel like you belong.”
