Jason Goes Places

Jason Ritchey
Communications

Hey there! I’m Jason, a second-year at Northeastern from Santa Cruz, California, currently studying Political Communications with three minors. I just returned to Boston after back-to-back study abroad experiences across Europe in 2015 and I'm now getting ready for my first coop--we'll see where I end up next. Besides exploring, I really like food. Like, a lot. Check out my blog to see more of my Northeastern adventure and a little of what you could look forward to as a husky!

Señor Senior

Ian Metivier
Cultural Anthropology and Spanish/History Minor

Hey everyone! My name is Ian. I'm a bit of an old husky—I'll be graduating in May in just a few months! During my five years at Northeastern University I've studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina, worked as a co-op at the Boston Mayor's Office, and just finished my second co-op at a translation agency in Madrid, Spain. On campus in Boston you can usually find me giving campus tours, working out at the Marino Center, or playing video games in the basement of the library. I've been a Husky Ambassador tour guide for over three years now and know all the answers to your questions about admissions or Northeastern, so feel free to ask me anything!

A Brief Dee-Tour

Deirdre Dunham
Bioengineering/Computer Science Minor

My name is Deirdre and I’m a second year at Northeastern currently on Co-op at Corindus Vascular Robotics working on embedded software research and development. When on campus, I’m a member of the Northeastern University Symphony Orchestra, the Biomedical Engineering Society, and Northeastern University Association of Gaming Enthusiasts. I also participate in research, in which I work in a war bunker helping robot lobsters with their plans for world domination. I have a passion for grading papers and am a TA for Engineering Design. Other passions include watching competitive eating, watching cat videos, and making bad jokes. If you have any questions about college or life in general, give me a shout!

Chemistry

Hey everyone! I'm a second-year Chemistry major on the pre-med track here at Northeastern. I'm currently on the search for co-ops, with the plan to go out in July after spending Summer 1 on a dialogue in Peru. Here on campus, I'm involved with a lot of different things! I'm part of Husky Ambassadors, the American Chemical Society, a few of the theater groups on campus, and Agape Christian Fellowship. In my free time, I love seeing shows both on and off campus, eating dining hall cookies, and walking to the beautiful Boston Public Library. If any of that sounds cool to you (and even if it doesn't), feel free to stop by and leave a message!

Psychology

Hey, I'm James, and as you can tell from the picture, I spent a good portion of my first two years at Northeastern doing and really loving research. I spent my post-freshman summer doing research, I did research for my first co-op, sometimes I did research for fun. Research is great, research gets you interesting skills, but it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life (plot twist!) So join me on my mid-college crisis (it's actually way more fun than it sounds) as I talk about adulthood, college, probably food (I do make a lot of it), searching for co-op #2, and watch as I explore psychology, linguistics, computer science, and criminal justice and inch closer to being able to answer "So, what do you want to do after graduation?

Pharmacy

Hi! My name is Allison and I’m a fourth year pharmacy major at Northeastern. I’m originally from San Francisco, CA (yes, I had to adjust to the huge difference in climate) but I’m still here and loving every second of it! I’m a lover of Japanese animation and related media and when I’m not studying you can find me giving tours to the lovely visitors of campus. I hope to share a number of different experiences and insights about Northeastern-there’s a lot of different opportunities awaiting here!
