  • The Dinner Circuit

    The Dinner Circuit is an event sponsored by the Northeastern University Office of Alumni Relations meant to strengthen the network of Northeastern community members across the country by connecting alumni working within the same industry in the same city.

    The idea is simple: attend a casual dinner with a small group of fellow alumni to share a good meal and great conversation, all while expanding your professional network.


    Stay tuned for Dinner Circuits events in your area/industry!

  • Mentorship Program

    One of the most recognizable and successful components of Northeastern University is its co-op program. The Northeastern Circuits Mentorship Program provides alumni employees working at partner companies with the opportunity to significantly impact current students’ co-op experiences through six-month (and beyond!) mentorships. Alumni mentors and co-op student mentees can learn from one another all while staying connected to the university through conversations and events.

    Our current partner companies include Brown Brothers Harriman and EMC Corporation. If your company is interested in participating in the Northeastern Circuits Mentorship Program please contact Bethany Lawlor at b.lawlor@northeastern.edu for more information.
