This week’s question: How is Northeastern shaping your life or career?

Northeastern started with an innovative idea: that education is about engaging with the world to solve problems and lead change.

Today, students engage with the world through experiential learning opportunities in 128 countries, charting an academic path that best suits their goals and aspirations. Faculty pursue use-inspired, interdisciplinary research toward discovering solutions to global challenges.

So tell us, how is Northeastern shaping your life or career?

Stop by the #TrueNortheastern video booth on Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in Snell Library.
