August is a transition month—from the peak of summer heat to the beginning of the busy fall semester. Academic pursuits continued with intensity both indoors and out. One project features a floating wetlands on the Charles River and another explores  designs for a robot to detect air leaks in homes. Campus tours were common sights, and some groups may have seen the White Coat ceremony for physician assistants or a stunning 7-month-old husky. Toward the end of the month, street and sidewalk traffic intensified as move-in week began. Enjoy these images from News@Northeastern’s award-winning photography team.

Mask on. Mask off. Now, put your mask on again. Don’t leave your house. Hug your grandparents. Stop hugging Grandma. Trying to navigate the renewed risks of the pandemic amidst the Delta variant may make your head spin. “We are in a situation where the ground rules have changed,” says Rory Smead, associate professor of philosophy at Northeastern.
