“My favorite thing about Northeastern is the abundance of opportunities for experiential learning, from co-op to study abroad, research, volunteer work, and more. I really love how we’re encouraged to take what we learn in class and apply it outside of the classroom in meaningful ways.”

“My favorite thing about Northeastern is the flexibility within the co-op program. Not only are there so many available positions, but there is also the option to set up your own co-op. I was able to create my own co-op through personal connections, and shape it to my specific interests.”

“There’s so much you can learn outside of the classroom. You have to get out of your comfort zone and immerse yourself in a culture different from your own. That was the big part of the reason I chose Northeastern. The university makes study abroad and global opportunities more accessible than any other school I could find.”

“I am pursing a dual concentration in finance and management. But when I’m not in class, I spend most of my time at Matthews Arena as a member of the women’s ice hockey team—where I am an assistant captain. I’ve grown into a better leader and person. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the support I receive from my scholarship, so I thank you.”

"At Northeastern, learning isn't limited to the classroom. My involvement in the university's student-led venture accelerator, IDEA, has provided me with the ability to be a part of helping enthusiastic entrepreneurs walk through the lab with an idea and leave months later with a functional concept and business opportunity. Being able to take part in the growth, excitement, and sometimes failures of each of our over 200 ventures in our program is experiential learning at its best and has had the most impact on me throughout my Northeastern experience."

"Campus life is what makes my Northeastern experience so impactful, specifically the fraternity and sorority life. Not only has it give me my best friends but it has also allowed me to push myself as a leader and overall student. Fraternity and sorority life has allowed me to take on roles that I did not think I would ever be capable of and become a better student, friend, and overall person."
