Husky 101 Orientation

To say “Welcome to Northeastern” doesn’t quite capture the adventure you’ve begun. Some call it the experience of a lifetime, but we like to say it’s nothing short of amazing here. Your inauguration to life at Northeastern begins at Husky 101 Orientation.

Husky 101 connects fall ’21 enrolled undergraduate first-year, transfer, Global ConnEXions, and veteran students and families with essential resources, programs, and platforms to chart their Northeastern path with global, research, and experiential opportunities and programs.
