While flora bloomed and the pace slowed just a little, June was full of activity and academic pursuits, both on Northeastern’s campuses and beyond. There was a festive Juneteenth celebration and displays of Pride in Boston, including in the Cabot Testing Center. And Cooper, a new campus community resource dog, is growing up and ready to matriculate this fall. See all this and more through the lenses of Northeastern’s award-winning photographers.
