by Esther Chou

Pres­i­dent Aoun con­grat­u­lated Northeastern’s Top 100 Seniors and Juniors after the Aca­d­e­mic Con­vo­ca­tion on Thurs­day, April 18. SEI sends our con­grat­u­la­tions to these out­stand­ing stu­dents in recog­ni­tion of their ser­vice and con­tri­bu­tion to the NU com­mu­nity and beyond. The Hunt­ing­ton 100 is a pres­ti­gious honor awarded to stu­dents that have been nom­i­nated by fac­ulty, staff, and peers.

Seniors Caitlin Fer­gu­son and Miguel De Cor­ral were awarded the Pres­i­den­tial Global Fel­low­ship in recog­ni­tion for their var­ied inter­na­tional expe­ri­ences. Caitlin par­tic­i­pated in co-ops at Root Cause in Boston, and with the Desh­pande Foun­da­tion in India. Caitlin also par­tic­i­pated in the Crit­i­cal Lan­guages Fel­low­ship through the US Depart­ment of State where she excelled in Hindi. Miguel com­pleted co-ops at NATO Defense Col­lege and the Geneva Forum, where he pub­lished his aca­d­e­mic work in Euro­pean pol­icy jour­nals. Senior Sarah Hods­don will be join­ing an inno­v­a­tive for-profit social enter­prise called mSur­vey in Nairobi, Kenya. Ando­nis Mar­den was awarded a pres­ti­gious Rotary Schol­ar­ship to study inter­na­tional devel­op­ment at the Uni­ver­sity of Oxford. Patri­cia Mon­tesquieu will join the ever grow­ing corps of North­east­ern alumni work­ing for Teach for Amer­ica. Mike Behan’s Potato Project through his com­pany Njabini Apparel is truly tak­ing off. IDEA CEO Chris Wolfel recently accepted a posi­tion at a startup in Boston after suc­cess­fully lead­ing Northeastern’s ven­ture accel­er­a­tor. Jes­sica Feld­ish, who led Husky Energy Action Team (HEAT) started Trash to Trea­sure, an inno­v­a­tive recy­cling pro­gram at North­east­ern. Junior Nate Bessa devel­oped a soft­ware appli­ca­tion while work­ing at Brigham and Women’s hos­pi­tal on his co-op. He also helped to develop the NU SE Review web­site, and the orga­ni­za­tion he co-founded, Project Plus One, recently won seed fund­ing at CGIU’s Res­o­lu­tion Project Chal­lenge.  Alum­nus Lucas Schoepp­ner was recently awarded the Ful­bright Fel­low­ship where he will inves­ti­gate the envi­ron­men­tal impact of frack­ing in Germany.
