And if you’re away from campus, well, you’re in for a bit of a surprise when you return this fall. The first part of our campus construction series looks at the upgrades to the Curry Student Center.

We asked Thomas Sheahan, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Northeastern University, to explain why the ground-freezing process was used and whether it caused the sinkhole to form.
