watchesWhy I Love Northeastern

I love the vibe at Northeastern! The students, professors, campus, and of Boston have so many amazing qualities. We have so much fun here on campus and in the city. I know that I’m getting a good education that will have far reaching benefits after I graduate.

Husky Tip

My tip for incoming Huskies is to explore Boston as much as you can. Boston has so many great sights to see and places to visit, and many of them are free or discounted for college students.

How I Get Involved

Getting involved at Northeastern is super easy! Personally, I’m a big fan of intramural sports. I played indoor volleyball and flag football with my friends and it’s a ton of fun. I also have a research job working with electronics that allows me to learn from upper-class students and have major-related job experience before I even go on co-op.

USE

What It Means to be a Husky

To me, being a Husky means caring about bettering yourself as a human being. Northeastern University has so many opportunities to offer every student, from broadening social skills to landing a good co-op. A Northeastern Husky will find a way to take advantage of these opportunities to become a better person.

My Message to Incoming Students

Welcome to Northeastern! These next few years are going to be some of the best times of your life. You’ll be living in a fantastic city, at a fantastic university, and be surrounded by fantastic people. Have a blast!

ShyamHusky Tip

Stetson East has a great vegan dining section! Make sure you walk through the little hallway so you don’t miss it!

How I Get Involved

I’d say I’m extremely involved. I’m currently part of five student organizations, ranging from the South Asian Cultural Org (UTSAV), to a choral society (NU Madrigal Singers). I’m also always looking for new clubs to join, so if anyone is looking to sign up for something cool, sign me up too!

What It Means to be a Husky

Being a Husky, to me, is about passion and community. As long as you’re pursuing an endeavor to your fullest potential and using the vast resources that Northeastern offers, then you’re a Husky! Additionally, I learned very quickly that working together with other Huskies is one of the most powerful things we can do! Huskies working together can do some pretty incredible things.

ShyamMy Message to Incoming Students

Congratulations, the hardest part is behind you! You’re here with us now, and these next few years may very well be some of the best of your life!

Why I Love Northeastern

I love Northeastern because it’s a place where I can flourish and achieve my dreams.  It gives me a boundless array of opportunities and a large group of friends that I wouldn’t change for the world.  I’ve made connections that will last a lifetime, and memories that will last forever.

Stephan

How I Get Involved

I am involved in Engineers Without Borders: Honduras Chapter, and the campus chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers. This year I also volunteered as an interpreter for the Boston Housing Authority.

What It Means to be a Husky

To be a Husky is to be open minded, adventurous, and unafraid of the world around you. Huskies are worldly, intellectual, and diverse. Huskies strive for success and seek to accomplish great things.

My Message to Incoming Students

Northeastern offers many opportunities. Take advantage of that, and use Northeastern to advance yourself and grow in ways that you would never have thought possible. Keep an open mind, and never lose sight of your goals.

Favorite Place on Campus: Rebecca’s

Favorite Movie: 21 Jump Street

Favorite Food: Cereal

Fun Facts

1. I’m a huge foodie. I even run an account on Instagram for documenting my latest eats!

Why I Love Northeastern

I love having a campus to call home in the heart of downtown Boston! As a Northeastern student, not only do we have access to amazing academic and recreational facilities on campus, but also to the countless restaurants, shops, and historical sites throughout the city. Being a member of the Husky community allows students to get to know a truly unique blend of genuine and friendly individuals. Being in such a big college town is just one aspect that makes going to Northeastern so great!

ShelbyHusky Tip

Sign up for group fitness classes at the Marino Center if you’re looking to try out some new workouts (or if you need that extra push to make it to the gym)!

How I Get Involved

As someone who is interested in health and wellness, I joined Fit University here on campus, which holds weekly workouts for other individuals who like to get a good sweat going. Additionally, I joined the Physical Therapy Club to get to know other individuals in my major from all years, and network with them. They share with me tips regarding the program and how to get involved in projects related to our major both on campus and in the Boston area. By joining both of these clubs, I was able to get to know individuals with shared interests.

What It Means to be a Husky

To me, being a Husky means having purpose and intent in everything you do. Working hard in classes ensures you’re prepared for co-op or other internship opportunities. Putting your best effort forward in these positions allows you to come back to the University with new perspectives and experiences to apply to your learning in the classroom. Furthermore, there are abundant opportunities both on –and off – campus to get involved in other areas (such as community service or fundraising). Northeastern stresses the importance of all students immersing themselves in as many experiences as possible before graduation. This ensures each and every one of us leaves the University as a well-rounded individual who is prepared to tackle the real world. To make this vision a success, it’s in our hands to seek out these opportunities and make the most of them.fitness

My Message to Incoming Students

From classes, to co-op, to clubs, and more – so many great opportunities for exploration and growth lie ahead of you at Northeastern. Orientation is just the beginning of what will be the best years of your life in college, and I’m thrilled to be able to make it a memorable experience for all of you! Go Huskies!

Questions like this always challenge me; how can I fit everything I love about Northeastern into a few sentences? The courses are challenging and rewarding, the experiential learning is extremely useful and exciting, and the social life is fantastic too. There are hundreds of clubs and teams to join, and even if none of them suit you, it isn’t hard to create your own! And our campus – we’re located in the center of Boston, one of the best college towns in the world, and yet still have a very residential feel, with multiple quads and a great combination of residence halls and apartments for student living.

Husky Tip

Study in empty classrooms. After class hours, classrooms stay unlocked and are a great resource for students.

How I Get Involved

I auditioned and got into the Unisons A Cappella group. Singing is a passion of mine, and since joining, we’ve performed all around Boston, from local high schools to other colleges with their a cappella groups, to small fundraiser shows in afterHOURS on campus. I have made friendships through this group that will last a lifetime, and that is really what getting involved at Northeastern is all about.

What It Means to be a Husky

There is definitely a pride that comes with being a Husky. Here at Northeastern, each and every student bears that pride, as well as the responsibility that comes with it. Students care for one another; we’re the kind of people who hold the door for someone walking behind us. Education is valued highly. Hard work in classes and on co-op earns us the fun we have at various clubs and events.
