First Pages Program

First Pages was established to develop a sense of common knowledge and purpose as students move into their first year at Northeastern University. Started in 2006, the goals of the project are to present a challenging and engaging text which will provide insight into an important issue and bring faculty, administrators, staff, upper-class students and new students together outside of a traditional classroom setting.

The book is the foundation for a series of programming events during Welcome Week including a visit from the author to speak with incoming first year students about the book and its link to Northeastern’s mission.

All new students are required to read the First Pages book prior to arrival on campus.
