  • 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.
