Maureen Q

I am a sophomore journalism major currently on co-op at The Boston Globe. I work in the Globe South office putting stories online, assisting the editors and writing stories. Originally from Colorado, I miss the mountains, but I enjoy being in the city. On weekends I like to explore Newbury Street and catch up on my favorite TV shows like Modern Family and Glee. My favorite memory about Northeastern has been seeing the great comedians and speakers come to Blackman Auditorium and Matthews Arena. I am involved with Campus Girl Scouts, where I help run a Girl Scout troop for younger girls. I am also a Husky Ambassador and I give tours to prospective students and their families. I am looking forward to working as a Co-op Connector to meet new people and help plan some great events for the Northeastern students on co-op. You can email me at quinlan.ma@husky.neu.edu.

Gabby Jockers


Hi my name is Gabby and I am currently a junior in Northeastern’s College of Business, studying entrepreneurship.  Currently I am completing my second co-op in marketing at The Alleyway in Beirut, Lebanon.  I am also completing a minor in International Affairs, which helps me justify my participation in many study abroad programs and my extensive international experiences!  Aside from summer programs in France and Portugal, I am getting ready to go to Spain in the fall of 2012, and hopefully do one last dialogue in the summer of 2013 before I graduate. I have also been involved in the Entrepreneur’s Club, as well as  the Portuguese Culture Club for the past two years, becoming president of the latter in my last semester!
