With a network of more than 240,000 individuals worldwide, Northeastern University alumni are poised to tackle today’s most pressing issues in the professional world. From the banking industry in Charlotte, North Carolina, to the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, to the technology industry in Silicon Valley, our alumni network is vast and varied.

You are still very much a part of the Northeastern community, even after graduation. The Northeastern Circuits program, launched in 2015, provides you with the opportunity to stay connected with fellow alumni and the wider university community through industry-specific events and professional programming. As we continue to roll out Northeastern Circuits, we will add cities and industries to our lineup of programming so please check back for events in your area!

  • The Dinner Circuit

    The Dinner Circuit is an event sponsored by the Northeastern University Office of Alumni Relations meant to strengthen the network of Northeastern community members across the country by connecting alumni working within the same industry in the same city.

    The idea is simple: attend a casual dinner with a small group of fellow alumni to share a good meal and great conversation, all while expanding your professional network.
