Northeastern welcomed it’s 125th entering class at the President’s Convocation earlier this week. The event included high-energy performances, powerful speeches and lots of confetti. Students also participated in Northeastern’s DIY Arts and Games Festival as well as Fall Fest, where hundreds of student clubs and organizations recruited new members. In Oakland and London, meanwhile, Huskies settled into their new living spaces and began exploring the campuses. Back in Boston, the 357,000-square-foot EXP building officially opened its doors to the entire Northeastern community.

A crowd of students in Class 125 T-shirts cheer and take photos while confetti falls around them.
