Advice to incoming students – "Northeastern is a big school with a lot of amazing opportunities. Sometimes, though, you can get lost or overwhelmed by all of the possibilities. This is when your advisors (academic, co-op, and financial aid) will be your best point of contact. Get to know each of them very well and establish strong relationships. With these three individuals on your side, you will accomplish more than you could imagine." (Merlinda, fourth year International Affairs & Economics major & Social Entrepreneurship minor) #iamcssh #ExperientialLiberalArts #21stCenturyLiberalArts #Northeastern

"I'm really proud of what the Economics Society (@nueconsociety) has become. It's a vehicle for students to really push themselves and be the change they want to see in the world. Alongside the weekly meeting, undergraduate research journal and all the competitions, we've just started reaching out to the neighboring community through Citizen Schools (@citizenschools). Teaching a 90 minute economics class to 5th and 6th graders each week really forces you to look at things you thought you knew from a new angle. Some of the questions we get from students are really intriguing and feeling students connect the material from our simulations to things they encounter in their everyday lives is incredibly rewarding. We have found tremendous support from the Center of Community Service, (@servicenu) for this new endeavor. I'd recommend everyone finds a way to give back throughout their time here."

"I chose to study political science and economics because I was interested in how public policy is created. The political science side of my studies helped me understand the sociology and structures of certain solutions. The economics side of my education helped me comprehend the feasibility and ramifications of certain proposals. Overall, the two areas of study complemented each other very well, leaving me with a well-round understanding of how I can create proper and fair public policy." (Aaron, fourth year Political Science & Economics combined major) #iamcssh #ExperientialLiberalArts #21stCenturyLiberalArts #Northeastern

Advice for first-year students – "Your education is more than sitting in a classroom, so take advantage of all the opportunities Northeastern has to offer. Take control of your education, take a class outside of your major that interests you, study abroad in a new country, accept a new co-op or join a new club. You might surprise yourself by what you learn from stepping out of your comfort zone." (Sabrina, Peer Mentor, fifth year Economics major) #iamcssh #ExperientialLiberalArts #21stCenturyLiberalArts #Northeastern
