Summerfest: To exemplify Northeastern – Seattle’s “Networked for Life” motto, this summer the campus held a series of events including workshops, social hours, and opportunities for prospective students to interact with each other and the campus staff. The most popular Summerfest events included: “Breakfast with the Dean, Tayloe Washburn”, “Lunch with the Academic Dean, Dr. Angela Walmsley”, “Writing and Resume Workshop”, and “Wine & Cheese with Admissions”.
Summerfest drove many types of people to the campus ranging from recently admitted to prospective students. Even an international student on his way to start classes in Boston stopped by for Lunch with the Dean! Multiple events and opportunities gave students an chance to have a more intimate exchange with the Deans & Admissions Team.
Admission Workshop: Amidst Summerfest events, the campus also hosted an Admissions Workshop. Diane Grobecker, Enrollment Team Lead, College of Professional Studies, came to Seattle to help students refine and complete their applications. Eight applicants attended the workshop representing graduate programs such as Computer Science, Global Studies, Project Management and Health Informatics. At this point four have been accepted and the rest are fine-tuning their applications and statements of purpose.
