Claire Moront, Bioengineering, COE ’20 // When I first stepped off the plane in Brussels, I was beyond excited for my next six months. I looked forward to the weekend trips to Italy, Denmark, France, and all of the other hidden gems of Europe. Fear set in when I was tasked with getting from BRU … More BOS to BRU: Global Co-op Reflections
Katie Wolfendale, CSSH ’23 // Ah, mid-November. If you had to choose, what would be your favorite thing about this time of year? Maybe it’s the foliage, or that Starbucks is starting to come out with their winter flavors (I’m looking at you, venti peppermint mocha w/ oat milk). For me, though, my favorite part … More Roomie Traditions!
Katie Wolfendale, CSSH ’23 // In all honesty, I had never quite pegged myself as a “Sorority Girl.” Not that I had any negative preconceptions – it was actually quite the opposite, as my only sorority exposure was Elle Woods in Legally Blonde – and who wouldn’t want to be Elle Woods? But that being … More A Sneak Peak of Going Greek!
Meghan Tanguay, Chemical Engineering, COE ’21 // Coming into Northeastern, I decided I wanted to major in Chemical Engineering without really knowing exactly what it was.

Katie Wolfendale, CSSH ‘23 // One of my favorite things about Boston is that we truly experience all four seasons. Winter brings on at the very least consistently below-freezing temperatures (and at the most, blizzards nearly every weekend); Spring usually means flowers blooming, and quite the bit of rainfall; Summers in Boston are hot and … More Your Ultimate Fall Playlist
Ruthie Olowoyeye, Bouvé ’22 // Even though it’s been a while since my first year at Northeastern, I still have a lot of great memories of my first-year residence hall and the people I lived with. But before I talk about my experience, let me explain the sorting process for first-year housing. So, if … More First Year Housing and LLCs
Katie Wolfendale, CSSH// I make no claim to be a psychic, but hear me out: I distinctly remember filling out my Common App for Northeastern fall of my senior year of high school, and coming to that little box with a rather direct question that looked a little like this: “Would you be interested in … More So You Wanna Talk About N.U.in…
Molly Wilson, COS ’21 // It feels odd to say, but, nearly four years ago to the day I write this, I boarded a plane bound for Montreal, Canada and stepped off into the four-month-long adventure that was my first semester of college.
