Northeastern president is a gadabout with a purpose
Boston Globe - 09/14/2015
He strolled through campus in Ray-Bans, snapping selfies with students, high-fiving those with familiar faces. It was the first day of school at Northeastern University, and Joseph Aoun was doing his thing.
The university president, a whirlwind of energy, wasn’t just showing off on the first day, either. He does this all the time.
Some college leaders are pensive figures who are seldom seen on campus. Aoun is not one of them; he seems to feed off the interaction.
For an hour between meetings last week, Aoun whizzed around campus, spinning, selfie-ing, oscillating between the role of parent, friend, and celebrity.
