You don’t have to be a linguistics student to attend our meetings. Anyone with an interest in language is welcome. If you’re considering a major or minor in linguistics, it’s a great way to meet other students and learn about what we do. We try to plan fun activities that relate to linguistics and language, like discussions, films, language and word games, presentations, and of course food! Linguistics students take a variety of classes and co-ops, so we share our experiences and learn about new opportunities. Contact
The Northeastern Math Club is a place for students interested in mathematics can get together and further explore mathematics outside of a classroom setting.

The Northeastern Undergraduate Researchers of Neuroscience (NEURONS) was originally founded as a club where students interested in the brain could meet and discuss new research and current events in the world of research. Our beginning was humble, but over the past few years, it has grown into the official student group for the Behavioral Neuroscience major. Through NEURONS, students are able to provide valuable feedback to the professors regarding classes, research opportunities, and the state of the major from a student’s perspective. During the biweekly meetings, students and faculty members are able to discuss in an informal setting new research from leading academic journals, topics that aren’t typically covered in classes, and life as a neuroscientist. Contact NEURONS on Facebook
Nu Rho Psi National Honor Society:
The Massachusetts Beta Chapter of Nu Rho Psi is a branch of the National Honor Society in Neuroscience, which was founded in 2006 by the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience. Membership into this honor society is for life and is often a springboard for networking and the collaboration of like-minded colleagues interested in the study of the brain. Some of our chapter’s main goals are to encourage intellectual and social interaction between students, faculty, and professionals in neuroscience and related fields; increase public awareness of neuroscience and its benefits for the individual and society; and to encourage service to the community through various outreach projects.
