Experience Boston - a Vibrant City Geared Toward Students

With over 250,000 students in Boston and Cambridge alone, Boston is a great place to be a student. Boston includes world-class medical facilities and clinics in which students serve the community, as well as many parks and green spaces. Whether you love the downtown scene or prefer walks in the garden, you will find Boston has a lot to offer.

Become a Part of the Community

NECO’s small but active student body helps to form a close-knit community. More than 15 additional student groups provide the opportunity for students to support both one another and the community at large. Whether it be through mock proficiencies to give students practice or groups that support new legislation for eye care, students have a chance to become involved.

NECO Provides Opportunities and Possibilities

Student life begins in the classroom and clinic, but extends far beyond these student experiences. Our students find and create opportunities to contribute to community service, advocacy efforts, scholarship, and collegiality.

After nearly two years at the New England College of Optometry, I have never stopped being amazed at how the school treats its students. You will never find here that you are just another number.
