As the central hub of Northeastern’s campus, the Curry Student Center is home to more than 300 of student organizations, as well as centers and offices that provide students a wide spectrum of support and opportunities for personal and professional growth.
On Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m., all of them will open their doors for Night at the Curry Student Center, an annual part of Welcome Week.
“The goal is to showcase what the student center offers,” said Jason Campbell-Foster, assistant dean of student affairs. “It is the premier Welcome Week event for the night.”
Many organizations will unveil newly renovated spaces, including the LGBTQA Resource Center, the bookstore, and the information desk. The game room also has a new home on the fourth floor.
Thursday’s event will give the university community its first look at the Center for Intercultural Engagement, now located on the first floor. And mixers for NU Pride and other social justice-oriented student groups will take place in the Student Government Association chambers.
In addition to open houses on every floor, Northeastern a capella groups will perform in the Indoor Quad and a troupe from the Improv Asylum will entertain people in afterHOURS, which was also recently renovated.
Snacks and giveaways will be available, and the ballroom will be transformed into a laser tag area. For those who can’t make the festivities, be sure to check out Northeastern’s Snapchat account to view the Center for Student Involvement’s takeover.
