The Compass Awards Program, our signature student awards program, recognizes exemplary students from the senior class who, during their time on campus, have demonstrated a true dedication to a core set of values: leadership, volunteerism, academic integrity, and commitment to Northeastern. Students who display strength in these values demonstrate to us that they are on a path to alumni leadership.


Each year, nine Compass Awards are presented. The eight undergraduate colleges are represented and one award is presented from Alumni Relations.

As part of the Compass Awards program, two additional honors are made.

The Wendy Breen Kline Award, established in 1997 and named in honor of the late Wendy Breen Kline, BB’84, PAH’88, is presented to one senior who embodies both leadership and volunteer spirit.

The Garnet Award recognizes one junior or third-year student who has demonstrated the same core values as the Compass Award recipients, making an impact in our community while showing promise for even greater success at Northeastern in the future. The Garnet Award debuted in 2014.

This program evolved from the Professional Promise Awards, a past model that was successfully established and implemented by the Alumni Association Board for several years.

The nomination process for the 2019 awards has now closed.


Nominations for the Compass Awards are accepted in the late fall and early spring from members of the University community.

The nomination process for the 2019 awards has now closed.

2018 Recipients

  • Corinne C. Bowers, E’18

    Corinne C. Bowers, E’18Highly intelligent. Poised. Motivated. All words to describe Corinne Bowers. An aspiring civil engineer, Corinne has excelled in her studies across her challenging coursework, co-op experiences, and research projects through the College of Engineering. Between her many responsibilities, Corinne has maintained a top grade point average of 3.95.

    As a research assistant over the past three years, Corinne found her passion for simulating and understanding the effect natural disasters have on infrastructure. She’s worked on a number of projects funded by the National Science Foundation, the American Institute of Steel Construction, the Charles Pankow Foundation, and more.

    During Corinne’s co-op positions at top engineering and forensic firms, she was tasked with analyzing and designing structures, assessing systemic risk, and conducting specialized research. Throughout these experiences, Corinne was able to dive even deeper into her interest of regional simulation to address potential damage to infrastructure due to possible environmental hazards.

    However, Corinne’s passion for engineering doesn’t end with her professional work. Since her freshman year, Corinne has been an active member of the Northeastern University chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers, holding many offices while involved. In 2016, Corinne served as the chapter’s president and also chaired the New England Steel Bridge Competition, a multi-day regional competition with hundreds of participants from several universities.

    Corinne’s leadership qualities continue into the many other roles she carries. As a Presidential Ambassador, Corinne represents the student body regularly at the events of the Northeastern University Board of Trustees and other Presidential events. Corinne is also an active participant in the Northeastern Civic Engagement program, completing more than 100 hours of community service each year over the past five years.

    With all of her accomplishments, it’s no surprise Corinne has been inducted into Chi Epsilon Civil Engineering Honor Society and Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society, in addition to receiving many awards from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Underlining these numerous recognitions, Corinne is a University Scholar and Honors student, which is only awarded to the top 1% of Northeastern students on the basis of academic achievement, leadership, and service.

    Upon graduating from Northeastern, Corinne will continue her studies with a PhD program in the interdisciplinary field of disaster resilience. She intends to pursue research with the goal of helping cities recover more effectively from natural catastrophes like hurricanes and earthquakes.

  • Timothy M. Foley, AMD’18

    Timothy M. Foley, AMD’18Sometimes, co-op experiences and extra-curricular involvement have such a great impact they can change the course of a student’s life. That’s the case with Tim Foley. A dedicated journalism student by practice, Tim demonstrates a tremendous maturity, sense of responsibility, and enthusiasm in his work as an educator in the community and leader in Northeastern University’s Catholic Center.

    When it comes to his engagement with the Catholic Center, Tim exceeds expectations. As chair of the Center’s service committee, Tim has been responsible for coordinating and leading service trips around Boston, planning a retreat for over 100 students, and organizing and overseeing weekly men’s group meetings. His dedication to both campus leadership and service to the community runs deep within him.

    With service as a major pillar in his life, Tim spent six months as a tutor with 826 Boston, a Roxbury-based agency where he met weekly with students to help them with English, history, and math, and assisted students with ongoing projects and writing assignments. Over the course of his time at Northeastern, Tim participated in four service trips taking him across the country and to South America.

    Because of his commitment to the community, Tim’s future aspirations extend far beyond the realm of journalism. Though he excelled in his co-op experience at The Boston Globe, covering high school hockey and lacrosse, and writing over 100 articles for print and online publication, more recently he worked as an assistant teacher at the Edward Devotion School, a K-8 public school in Brookline.

    All of Tim’s passions—journalism, service, and education—have converged throughout his time at Northeastern. While directing a retreat for the Catholic Center, Tim considered details all the way down to topics and questions for every discussion with originality. He felt like he was able to serve the community and give back to the Catholic Center, to which he attributes so much of his personal growth. Additionally, Tim wrote a feature about “Boston Pulse,” an-after school program that gives students a space to write and perform spoken word and poetry that was published by WBUR.

    After graduating, Tim plans to join the Lasallian Volunteer Program, a one-year commitment during which he’ll work in a middle school or high school. With thoughts to the future, Tim is considering pursuing his passions with a career in education, social work, or counseling.

  • Elliot A. Horen, KCIS’18

    Elliot A. Horen, CIS’18Elliot Horen believes in taking action when it comes to areas important to him. He’s not the kind of student who sits on the sidelines waiting for change to come—he’s the one driving it. His dedication to progress is evident in his co-op positions, leadership at the university, and in plans for his future.

    Beginning his Northeastern career as a University Scholar, Elliot has always championed academic achievement, leadership, and service. With a major in Information Science and Business Administration, Elliot has demonstrated deep interest in the areas where technology, innovation, policy, and media converge.

    With his interests close at heart, Elliot has excelled in three co-op roles during his education. He’s managed all marketing functions at a 34-person startup, created and designed a Boston HUBWeek event that focused on gender equity in technology, and facilitated meetings and coordinated tasks that led to measureable improvement across a company.

    His desire to create change for good extends far beyond his professional experience. As described by a mentor, “Elliot cares about achieving justice for those to whom it has long been denied. He cares about using his privilege for good and for empowering others.”

    Serving as Northeastern Student Body President and representing the interests of 18,000 undergraduates for a year, Elliot overhauled organizational strategy, led outreach efforts, and created and implemented successful coalition-based campus-wide initiatives on mental health, sexual violence prevention, and civic engagement. By serving as a progressive leader, Elliot has brought important policy changes to campus. He recognizes, supports, and gives a voice to those who need it most.

    Elliot’s passion lies in making a tangible difference in the lives of the people he works with and serves. Understanding the power of teamwork, Elliot is a highly driven and motivated individual when it comes to achieving results. Northeastern University named him to the Huntington 100, which recognizes the 100 most influential students, and awarded him the Above and Beyond Award for completing an exceptional amount of community service.

    Post-graduation, Elliot is considering graduate school and intends to enter the public service sector. He aims to continue his mission of helping others and not only inspiring progress, but truly affecting change for the better.

  • Kathryn E. Larkin, S’18

    Kathryn E. Larkin, S’18To say Katie Larkin loves physics would be an understatement. Between her co-ops, research position in the Nanoscale Biophysics Lab, campus leadership roles, and extracurricular involvement, Katie has proven herself to be a rising leader in both physics and law.

    As a biomedical physics major, Katie is a top undergraduate student in the physics program. Maintaining a stellar GPA of 3.85, Katie has impressed her mentors with her enthusiasm, proactive tendencies, and natural leadership skills. During a co-op experience in Geneva, Switzerland, Katie astonished her supervisor with her ability to quickly take on high-level tasks in particle physics research that even PhD students would hesitate to take on.

    Katie’s passion for physics extends into her extracurricular activities, serving as a leader in the Society of Physics Students and as the physics representative on the College of Science Undergraduate Student Advisory Board. In these roles, she planned events and activities, coordinated professor talks, and voiced academic and student life concerns. Additionally, Katie served as a Student Ambassador for the College of Science and Physics Department, speaking on Welcome Day panels and meeting with prospective students and first year students as a mentor.
    Katie’s other strengths lie with diplomacy. As an active member of the International Relations Council, she’s competed in Model United Nations, Model NATO, and Model Arab League, winning Best Delegate awards. In 2016 she chaired the Nuclear Planning Group at the International Model NATO competition, receiving the Best Chair Award. Her love for public speaking is also evident in her volunteer work to help students with public speaking skills through high school speech and debate teams, the Massachusetts Speech and Debate League, and the Harvard Debate Council Summer Workshops.

    Of her experiences, Katie finds her volunteer work at the Legal Services Center through Harvard Law School most significant. Working under the supervision of a Harvard Law Clinic lawyer, she met with and represented individuals applying for Social Security Disability benefits. In this role, Katie applied herself to make a difference in her clients’ and their families’ lives.

    Katie plans to work for a year at a hospital or biotech company after graduation while applying to law school. She is interested in advances in the area of genomics and resulting policy changes in both privacy and regulation, and hopes to pursue a career in the field.

  • Diana J. Ojeda, CPS’18

    Diana J. Ojeda, CPS’18Diana Ojeda is no ordinary Northeastern University student. Since 2011, Diana has been performing professionally with the Boston Ballet and is currently a second soloist in the company.

    The Boston Ballet is one of the world’s leading ballet companies, attracting the best dancers from around the globe for a coveted few spots. This honor requires the highest level of dedication, talent, determination, wisdom, and perseverance. It should come as no surprise then, that Diana is as committed to her education as her profession.

    Studying management, Diana has excelled to maintain a GPA of 3.8 while training 8-12 hours a day in ballet. It is evident Diana’s passions exist beyond the dance studio and stage—she’s taken on ambitious academic projects that further her commitment to her studies and her homeland.

    Originally from Paraguay, Diana desires her country to be seen in a positive light and to be known for the beauty and talent of its people. During her time at Northeastern, Diana started working on a project that will bring the traditional crafts of Paraguay across the world. She’s recognized how important crafts are to the livelihoods of the people of Paraguay and how economic and social difficulties pose challenges to gaining exposure and selling them.

    Diana is currently building a business that will bring global exposure to these handcrafted goods, benefitting families across Paraguay. Her goal is to create a positive impact, making artists feel proud of their talent and work, providing opportunities to export their products, and allowing families a more sustainable source of income. She aims to bring much-needed exposure, continuity, and support to these communities.

    It’s not common to find a student like Diana—one who combines the extremely competitive and highly physical and mental demands of a career in ballet with the focus and dedication required of a college student. For this reason Diana serves as a role model for other artists, saying “my journey is proof it is possible to attain our goals if we commit to work hard, and invest all our energy and focus on achieving them.”

    In addition to her other noteworthy achievements, in 2016, Diana was honored as one of the Latino 30 Under 30 by El Mundo Boston. This is a recognition that honors young individuals making an impact in the Massachusetts Latinx community.

  • Suchira Sharma, DMSB’18 (Office of Alumni Relations)

    Suchira Sharma, DMSB’18Suchira Sharma is one to boldly use her experiences and identity to advocate for and empower others. An action-oriented individual, Suchira finds the best leadership roles where she can effect change and accomplish her goals.

    When Suchira entered Northeastern, she didn’t foresee herself becoming student body president and positively impacting the lives of 18,000 undergraduate students. She first joined Sigma Sigma Sigma and was immediately welcomed into a group of women who believe in the strength of empowerment. With her sorority, she first got involved with Northeastern’s Student Government Association (SGA) as a senator.

    There, Suchira saw how passionate her peers were about reforming policies and making the university more equitable for all students. As a freshman, Suchira went from being senator to chief of staff of SGA. In this role, she managed a budget of $60,000, handled internal operations, and recruited, trained, and managed senators. However, Suchira’s impact on sstudent government was only just getting started.

    In 2016, Suchira became vice president and grew the Senate to the largest it had been, giving voices to students and organizations that had previously not had representation. By making the Senate more accessible, productive, and thoughtful, Suchira brought more people together to come up with solutions to better meet the needs of the student body. During her time as VP, Suchira found that the Student Bill of Rights had not been updated in 25 years and realized the need to change it to reflect the needs of current Northeastern students.

    With this arduous goal in mind, Suchira sought to serve as student body president. In 2017, Suchira and her running mate were the first fully female and first people-of-color ticket to hold this office at Northeastern. Here, she expanded the Student Bill of Rights to give protection to students of various backgrounds and identities, offer students access to physical and mental healthcare, and provide alternatives for paid homework submission platforms. It was Suchira’s initiative to make Northeastern more inclusive and give students the power to advocate for themselves. Suchira is currently writing a process to close the wage gap within Northeastern’s co-op partners and make gender parity an expectation within those organizations.

    As an entrepreneur who improved so many areas to which she brought her passion, Suchira’s legacy will live on long after she graduates. Her focus on projects, process, and empowering others to carry on improving will never cease.

  • Taylor N. Straatmann, SSH’18

    Taylor N. StraatmannThe place where faith, service work, economics, and policy intersect is where you can find Taylor Straatman. As an economics and international affairs student who has served as a leader in Northeastern’s Christian and interfaith organizations, Taylor’s impact reaches all corners of campus, promoting student development, service, and meaningful dialogue.

    Taylor’s academic excellence shines through her 3.9 GPA and range of thought-provoking social science courses. In addition to traditional class work, Taylor has actively participated in research starting her freshman year with an independent grant-funded project studying the role of religious diversity in elementary schools. She interviewed key stakeholders and wrote a report on best practices, ideas on religious diversity and education, and avenues for future research.

    For many years, Taylor served as a leader and mentor within the Intervarsity Multiethnic Christian Fellowship, a community where students explore faith with an emphasis on justice and multi-ethnicity. In this role, she focused on initiating dialogue and service work surrounding race, justice, and cross-cultural education. Additionally, she’s written curricula for other Intervarsity chapters to engage students in these conversations. Furthering her commitment to faith, Taylor led the Northeastern Interfaith Council by planning forums for all spiritual groups to come together to learn and have discussions. She also chaired the first New England Interfaith Student Summit.

    Taylor’s dedication to the greater community continues with her co-op experiences, all which focused on helping others. She wrote five successful grant proposals to gain funding for a non-profit that empowers impoverished families to build financial strength, developed business and legislative outreach plans for an organization helping people become financially secure, and supported the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce by enabling young leaders to build community and engage in dialogue about pressing issues.

    Additionally, Taylor volunteers with LIFT Boston, a non-profit that pairs advocates with community members to build stable personal, social, and financial foundations. She’s worked with clients to build skills and navigate resources to find jobs, secure housing, or obtain services as well as advocated for them to attorneys, rental subsidy providers, and property managers to prevent eviction or access Emergency Assistance.

    During her time at Northeastern, Taylor successfully brought together people of disparate backgrounds and beliefs not by avoiding difficult conversations, but by approaching the conversations with empathy and inclusivity. She plans to do the same after graduation.

  • Tejas S. Vora, DMSB’18

    Tejas S. Vora, DMSB’18As a student, role model, and professional, Tejas Vora is always one to support others and give back. And, when Tejas finds work for which he is passionate, he takes it on with the strength and mindset of a leader.

    Pursuing a degree in finance, management, and international relations, Tejas made his mark on three major companies through his co-op experiences. In his first role, Tejas analyzed and reported financial data to support the efforts of portfolio mangers and analysts. Tejas also guided and supported 35 other co-ops with whom he worked. When he took on his second co-op role as an equity research analyst in Chicago, Tejas performed analyses and research to support senior team members in the creation of marketing materials, portfolio overviews, and research. Additionally, he led a team of co-ops across three offices in creating and presenting a major project to the company’s management. For his final co-op, Tejas handled many responsibilities at a firm that provides ventured growth loans to companies in the technology and life sciences industries. In this role, Tejas coordinated biweekly chats with co-ops from coast to coast to discuss projects, compare experiences, and further their professional development.

    In tandem with his co-ops, Tejas supplemented his education with research and a study-abroad experience. In his second year, Tejas worked alongside a professor of accounting on a project investigating corporate social responsibility. He was tasked with finding, analyzing, and summarizing relevant data in published journals to support his mentor’s work. Furthermore, in 2016, Tejas journeyed to a partner institution in South Africa to strengthen his knowledge and experience in global relations and social enterprise.

    When it comes to leadership on campus, Tejas has held a Resident Assistant position for four years, managing up to 65 students a year. Knowing how important it is to sustainably support his residents, Tejas acted as a role model and made himself available as a consistent resource for anything they needed. When talking about his experience Tejas says, “Being an RA or a leader doesn’t mean you put yourself first. Rather, you try to bring up those around you and support everyone in the capacity you can.”

    During his time at Northeastern, Tejas has appreciated how working hard and working smart pay off. Notably, Tejas has accepted a full-time role in Boston as an analyst at an investment bank.

He also presented at Northeastern’s TED Talk in 2017 about the emerging use of technology in healthcare and how it can be used to improve patient care.

    Immediately following graduation Brandon will travel to Yosemite National Park to hike Half Dome. After, he plans to work as a registered nurse in an ICU or at a healthcare startup.

  • Wendy Breen Kline Award: Payton A. Schenck, SSH’18

    Payton A. Schenck, SSH’18There is no better example of Northeastern pride than Payton Schenck. In her numerous leadership roles, Payton flourished by going above and beyond to ensure the success of multiple major campus-wide programs. From her involvement with Fraternity and Sorority Life, Relay for Life, and Northeastern University Homecoming, Payton has shown herself to be invaluable to the Center for Student Involvement.

    Very active in her sorority, the Northeastern chapter of Kappa Delta, Payton served as secretary and then president. During her time on the board, she helped the chapter create its first-ever Sexual Assault Awareness Week. By working with other sorority presidents, Payton’s team developed a safety plan and pocket-sized list of emergency contact information for the 1,200 women of the Panhellenic community.

    Continuing her passion for Sorority Life, Payton took on the role of President of the Panhellenic Council, overseeing operations of a council governing 1,200 undergraduate women and nine member organizations. As a highly effective and organized president, she engaged the entire community, restructured and added value to meetings, and improved formal recruitment.

    As Relay for Life Event Lead, Payton achieved recognition for being the fourth largest collegiate Relay for Life event in the U.S. Payton expertly kept her team coordinated, organized, and focused on the goal of fundraising for the American Cancer Society. As a result, Payton’s team drastically surpassed their goals by raising nearly $275,000 and increasing the number of participants.

    With so many leadership roles, Payton prides herself most on how her organizations have collaborated to create a stronger and more unified campus. Notably, Payton was recognized as the inaugural recipient of the Northeastern Student Organization Leader of the Year Award in 2017.

    Through these many accomplishments, it is clear that Payton is a phenomenal leader, advocate, and mentor to her peers. She’s amazed her own mentors with her passion, grace, integrity, resourcefulness, and unwavering dedication to the betterment of her organizations. Payton is the kind of person who not only sees the best in others, but who also brings out the best in them. She’s described as selfless, humble, hardworking, and innovative.

    Her involvement with the organizations she cares about most continues after graduation, as she will serve as a Leadership Development Consultant for Kappa Delta Sorority Headquarters, mentoring university women across the country as they develop confidence in their leadership abilities.

  • Garnet Award: John J. Lovett, SSH’19

    John J. Lovett, SSH’19Jack Lovett is an exceptional individual not only because of his intellect and initiative, but also because of his leadership capabilities and desire to serve others. Jack has pushed the boundaries of educational possibilities at Northeastern, created space for leadership where he saw the need, and worked to make progress toward the ideals in which he believes.

    As a double major in political science and history, Jack forged a unique academic path in an area where a combined major does not yet exist. He has completed all required courses for both majors with outstanding grades, maintaining a 3.915 GPA. During his undergraduate career, Jack has pursued the most challenging classes and charted his own course.

    Currently, Jack is completing Honors in his major through independent, archival research on the racial politics of Boston. Independent research is not required of history majors, but Jack actively sought it out for his own intellectual reasons. Additionally, Jack will be completing the PlusOne master’s in public administration program and will take graduate-level courses during his final year at Northeastern.

    While Jack’s accomplishments in the classroom are noteworthy, it is the combination of this excellence with his leadership on campus and service to the community that make him a standout citizen. Early on, Jack took interest in residential life at Northeastern, serving as Hall Council President of his freshman residence. He’s served as a resident assistant (RA) for the following years, helping and advising students in their adjustment to life at Northeastern. From 2015 to 2017, Jack was the RA in charge of political Political Engagement in the Urban Society Living Learning Community. He created an engaging and inclusive environment and led political education events during a volatile and divisive election.

    In addition to his work on campus to increase political involvement, Jack has served on state and regional political campaigns to increase voter registration. It’s his commitment to giving people a voice that caused him to co-found Northeastern’s Mixed Students Union when he perceived the need for biracial and mixed students to have an organization of their own.

    As described by his mentor, Jack is a rare student who combines the gift of intellect with a dedication to his community, and who goes beyond his comfort zone in all he does.
