Throughout the summer, incoming freshmen attended summer ori­en­ta­tion to get acquainted with life at North­eastern. We took the oppor­tu­nity to ask the university’s newest stu­dents what they are most excited for as they begin their North­eastern experience.

“I already can’t wait for co-​​op. It’s a great oppor­tu­nity, and it could help me get a job right out of college.”


Julia Fisher
