Located in the heart of Boston, Northeastern University has a lot to offer. One program that takes my school to the next level, however, is the co-op program. To put it simply, when a student is on co-op, they are working during the semester instead of taking classes. It’s like a preview of the real world and what being an adult is like (kind of). When it comes to interview season, students put their best dress shoe forward and practice their interview skills with whichever roommate happens to be around. Due to our popular co-op program, students are used to dressing professionally and looking put together. This job-ready attitude lends itself to Northeastern students’ just as composed off-the-clock style.
While students at Northeastern University have a career-focused mind, they do release some creative steam through their clothing choices. When they’re not prepping for interviews or taking the train to work everyday, they show off their one-of-a-kind style. We’ve got students who made sneakers look fashionable long before they became trendy, those who effortlessly rock tropical print button-downs and students who dress to the beat of their own drum. Whether students dress with or without fashion trends in mind, they maintain a professional balance in their everyday attire that translates through well thought out looks and attention to detail. Whether it’s by simply wearing well-fitting garments, a chic button-down and sweater combo or snazzy boots, Northeastern University students are far more fashion conscious than they give themselves credit for.
