What’s changed since Northeastern’s 1988 Beanpot title

 


 

The world was a different place in February 1988. A movie ticket was less than half the price one costs today, Tiffany topped the Billboard 100, and Snell Library hadn’t yet opened its doors to students.

However, one thing is similar – the Northeastern men’s hockey team is celebrating a Beanpot championship. Take a look how times have changed since the last time the Huskies came out of the tournament as top dogs.
