Why I chose Northeastern’

We asked some of Northeastern’s newest stu­dents to share what about the uni­ver­sity most appealed to them.


From one Husky to another

We asked vet­eran North­eastern stu­dents to share their advice for incoming freshmen and transfer stu­dents. Check out this video to see and hear what they had to say.

The Husky Ambassadors are well known for their fun and informative tours of the Northeastern campus. President Aoun joined their ranks to provide his own version of the campus tour. You’ll want to see the results.
