“Attending Northeastern was life-changing for me. As a teacher working full-time, I was able to complete my master’s degree entirely in the evenings and over the summer. Because of the affordability of NEIU, I completed my degree with absolutely no debt.”

-Carrie Saurer (Communication, Media and Theater, M.A., 2012) Theater and Communications instructor at Maine South High School, Park Ridge, Illinois
