Seattle Campus Opening a Success!
The Northeastern University Seattle Graduate Campus had a very successful Open House event yesterday from 4-7pm. Over 500 people attended and enjoyed local music, food, and drinks in a celebratory atmosphere. Attendees experienced the dedicated campus space as well as the classroom space while they learned about Northeastern, degree programs, the Co-op program, research interests, community outreach, and met staff, students, and alumni. Welcoming remarks came from: Campus Dean & CEO Tayloe Washburn, King County Executive Dow Constantine, and Seattle City Council President Sally Clark. In attendance were an additional three City Council Members; media representatives from Geekwire, Northwest Science Writers, The Seattle Times and Xconomy; and dozens of alumni – including 1950 graduate Ralph Burwell (CoE) and Seattle Chapter Alumni President Cathy Sullivan and husband Kevin, (both CCIS 2005).
