Share your #TrueNortheastern story

Collectively, your stories capture the true essence of Northeastern. Beginning Jan. 26, 2015, add your #TrueNortheastern story to the university’s living history.

Beginning Monday, Northeastern students, faculty, and staff have an opportunity to add their voices to the university’s living history.

The digital storytelling project—called #TrueNortheastern—was first introduced by President Joseph E. Aoun at his State of the University address in November, when he asked the community to share personal stories that capture the true essence of Northeastern.

If you have a story, share it. If you want to chat on camera, our video crew will be all over campus to listen. On Monday, they will be in the Curry Student Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Follow @Northeastern on Twitter and Instagram for future locations.)

There is more than one way to share.

If you can’t stop by the video booth—perhaps you’re on co-op or you’re more of the do-it-yourself type—then use your smartphone and post your video on YouTube.

If you love to tweet, do it.

If you have more to say, blog about it on Tumblr.

Just make sure you use #TrueNortheastern.

Need something to prompt you? We will pose one question per week for the next five weeks. Check news@Northeastern and follow @Northeastern on Twitter and Instagram for the question of the week.

This week’s question: What makes Northeastern special to you?

#TrueNortheastern is an opportunity to share with each other—and with the world—the remarkable story of our distinctive and global university through the voices and experiences of those who know it best—our students, faculty, and staff. Share your story.
