Northeastern in three words? …Go!

Inspired by President Joseph E. Aoun’s call to action in his State of the University address, we started #TrueNortheastern to gather personal stories about what it means to study, teach, and work at Northeastern.

We’ve asked what makes Northeastern special to you, how the university has made you more global, and most recently, what Northeastern will look like in 2025. Your responses have been as inspiring and diverse as the university itself.

Many have shared their own stories via videos, blogs, pictures, and tweets. You can see some of last week’s responses below, and you can check out many more submissions at

This week, we want you to describe Northeastern in three words.

Ready? Go.

Stop by the #TrueNortheastern video booth on Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Stetson East.

Can’t make it to the video booth? Use your smartphone to post your video, photo, or story to Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, or YouTube. Just be sure to use #TrueNortheastern.

Here are some of last week’s responses about the Northeastern of 2025:
