Becoming a Co-op Connector

Do you love planing events and staying connected to your fellow students?

If so, becoming a Co-op Connector might be the right opportunity for you!

What is the Co-op Connector program?

Co-op Connectors is a volunteer program in which student representatives, or "Connectors", act as liaisons between students on co-op and Northeastern University.  This program seeks to strengthen the relationship between co-op students and the University, as well as to improve the "student life" component of the co-op experience.

What will the role as Co-op Connector entail?

Co-op Connectors will work with Co-op Connections staff, as well as their area alumni chapter leaders, to develop and enhance events and programming for co-op students.

Potential Responsibilities may include:

  • Staying connected to other students on co-op in order to determine event preferences and to bring student focus to area events
  • Attending alumni chapter meetings and be the voice for the co-op students in your area
  • Working with Co-op Connections to promote Welcome events for your co-op area
  • Promoting area athletic events
  • Organizing a community service event for co-op students, both independently or with alumni
  • Scoping out potential event locations and or/activities
  • Checking in with students periodically to see how their co-op experience is going
