They’ve got class

It was back to class on Wednesday for Northeastern students, and we asked some to share what they are most looking forward to during the 2015-16 academic year.

From meeting new people, to embarking on co-ops, to taking their first college class, these students couldn’t wait to immerse themselves in campus life.
