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.

 

2019 Recipients

  • Alya Abourezk, AMD’19

    Alya Abourezk, AMD’19
    Throughout her undergraduate career, Alya Abourezk has distinguished herself as a standout aspiring architect. From freshman year, when she received the “Excellence in Design Award,” to junior year, when she won the top undergraduate award in the competitive Humanities category in Northeastern’s RISE (Research, Innovation, Scholarship, and Entrepreneurship) expo, it’s no surprise Alya is on her way to becoming a leader in the field.

    Alya spends most of her time working on architecture, and puts her dedication into everything she does—even interests outside of design. She loves travel, food, and photography, and has visited over 30 countries to date. Uniting all of her interests is her passion for discovering new cultures. Experiencing new places, interacting with people across the world, and exploring the different avenues in which a population’s heritage is expressed drives Alya, and has propelled her far in her career already.

    Alya’s co-op experiences in Italy and Germany have allowed her to work on research teams and major design projects. Her proudest accomplishment was working in Berlin as a collaborator on a master-planning project to transform Berlin’s Tegel Airport and airfield into the “Urban Tech Republic,” a new neighborhood for the city. She credits her coursework for giving her the skills and knowledge she needed to hold the large responsibility of developing five mobility hubs on a project important to both Berlin and the architectural firm. Alya has also been a contributing writer for ArchDaily, an online architecture news outlet.

    In addition to excelling academically and professionally, Alya has also found time to be involved as a leader in CAMD’s School of Architecture. Throughout her time at Northeastern, Alya has represented her class and college on the Student Advisory Board and in the Student Government Association. She has also served as both secretary and vice president in Northeastern’s chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students. In her role, Alya organized a “Women in Architecture” panel to discuss education and gender equity in the architectural workplace.

    According to Alya’s mentor, “She does not treat the study of architecture as an isolated experience, but as a collective enterprise built around engaging colleagues inside and outside architecture. She always becomes a leading figure because of her clear and strong ideas, and her ability to listen to others to incorporate their thoughts and goals.”

    Alya plans to further her education by pursuing her master degree in the field this fall.

  • Katherine Hayes, DMSB’19

    Katherine Hayes, DMSB’19Katherine Hayes is so much more than a business student. A holistically engaged thinker and frequent Dean’s List honoree, Katherine will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, and minors in International Affairs and History. From club leadership and international learning, to co-op experiences and faculty research, Katherine has forged a unique and impressive educational path for herself.

    Determined to increase her understanding of other cultures, and deepen her knowledge within her fields, Katherine participated in two global study abroad experiences. In Lyon, France, she studied both marketing and accounting, developing an understanding of how international affairs can impact broader business decisions; and, in Warsaw, Poland, she had the opportunity to see history first-hand as she studied World War II and the Cold War, with an emphasis on the Jewish experience.

    Through her studies in marketing, Katherine developed both an interest, and a strong skill base in research and data analysis. While on campus, she helped with faculty research on minimalism and consumer behavior that focused on tiny homes, van life, and capsule wardrobes. She is co-authoring a paper integrating her two and half years’ worth of findings from relevant articles and primary interviews.

    Katherine completed three co-op experiences in the marketing industry that have allowed her to not only increase her technical and professional acumen, but also granted her the opportunity to contribute to each of the organization’s objectives. During one of her co-ops at a global communications agency, Katherine created social media ads and optimized websites, managed the Forbes BrandVoice relationship, and leveraged both syndicated survey research, as well as third-party research to provide her team with critical data to support client goals.

    Katherine’s Northeastern legacy lies in her work as vice president, and president of the Northeastern University Marketing Association (NUMA) – one of the largest student-run clubs in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business. NUMA plays a crucial role in connecting students to industry leaders, as well as providing programming that keeps students informed on marketing trends.. Under Katherine’s leadership, NUMA hosted 30 industry speakers each semester, grew to its highest membership, and extended its reach across campus. Katherine also led Northeastern’s teams in the American Marketing Association Case Competition two years in a row, and received Commendable Mentions.

    Following graduation, Katherine will be working at Digitas North America as a search engine optimization analyst on the agency’s newly-won Dunkin’ account, and intends to finish reading 85 books by the end of 2019.

  • Daniel Lim, DMSB’19

    Daniel Lim, DMSB’19

    Without Daniel Lim, Northeastern’s student-run radio station, WRBB 104.9FM would not be the thriving organization it is today. A creative, entrepreneurial, team-oriented leader, Daniel transformed WRBB 104.9FM from a small group into a relevant and robust community.

    When Daniel joined the station in his first year, he noticed the thinly-run organization had approximately 50 members handling music, writing, leadership, and administration, in a space that needed rehabilitation. Daniel immediately saw the potential the station had to become a force on campus, and made it his mission to give the organization his all.

    Today, WRBB stands nearly 200-members strong, with 120 DJs, 30 writers, 40 administrative staff, and 10 board members. Offering diverse  on-air and over the Internet programming, the organization has also improved its media team by creating an editing team to help new writers, and a department for podcasts, including purchasing equipment and renovating a studio. By expanding board responsibilities to student work promotion and logistics, the station drives 10,000 monthly views to its website, and has overseen concerts for three major artists on campus. Daniel is particularly proud of growing the staff and developing a structure to better reflect the needs of the station.

    Daniel’s involvement at WRBB gave him an opportunity to be a leader, roll up his sleeves, and champion the work of his peers. During his tenure as the station’s general manager, Daniel helped re-write and ratify a new Constitution and Rules & Bylaws to reflect updated business approaches, and energize his peers. The station offers hour-by-hour programs that uniquely reflect the diverse styles and tastes that make up the community, as well as help the students grow.

    Daniel’s passion for the station took him to the Office of Alumni Relations, where he sought to capture the station’s 57-year history by connecting with alumni who were involved with it in the past. An exemplary student ambassador for the office, Daniel gathered a rich tapestry of information from interviews with alumni who were as passionate about radio as he is. The Office recommended him to be part of the Students Today Alumni Tomorrow program – an initiative that identifies leaders on campus, and gives them the opportunity to expand their personal network, provide insight on programming for students, and expand their leadership skills.  In its inaugural year, Daniel has already demonstrated his leadership to the organization by offering insights and ideas to make it better.

    Following graduation, Daniel will work as a growth analyst at his former co-op, PlacePass, a Boston-based travel technology startup.

  • Jameson O'Reilly, S’19

    Jameson O'Reilly, S’19

    It is incredibly rare to find an undergraduate student who has authored five peer-reviewed publications; it is even more rare for the same student to have completed research on highly respected teams across three continents, attended two major conferences, and been actively engaged on campus as a leader and volunteer. Jameson O’Reilly is not a typical student.

    Graduating with a degree in physics and mathematics, Jameson has constructed a rich, global education for himself during his time at Northeastern. Fiercely motivated by his fields of study, Jameson began his involvement in research during his freshman year volunteering in a laboratory that had never before accepted a first-year student. Jameson continued his involvement with this lab, working with his mentor through a six-month research assistantship at CERN, the European laboratory for particle physics in Geneva, Switzerland. Jameson was tasked with constructing and testing miniature versions of gas-filled wire chambers to find an eco-friendly alternative to the harmful CF4 gas used currently.

    His diverse research experience also includes work for the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate in New York, Okinawa Institute for Science and Technology in Japan, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. in MA, and the Naval Research Lab in DC. It was during these experiences where he co-authored four publications, including one as first author. In addition to working in other labs, Jameson was inspired to conduct his own research at Northeastern, and received a grantto complete his project in 2017.

    A natural educator, Jameson has taught engaging STEM courses for Boston-area high school students through the Northeastern Program for Teaching by Undergraduates (NEPTUN), and volunteered with the Center for STEM Education by facilitating curriculum development and field trips for K-12 students. Jameson’s other on-campus contributions include his leadership in the Society of Physics Students, as well as his writings for NU Sci, Northeastern’s student-run science magazine.

    Collaboration comes naturally to Jameson, having frequently worked with international groups of physicists. His colleagues have acknowledged his exceptional scientific maturity, consistently clear presentation, confidence in embracing challenges, and ability to learn new skills and concepts quickly. His mentor said, “I value his views like those of a peer, and I have a great deal of trust in the work he does.”

    Jameson sees a Ph.D. in Physics in his future. He attributes his preparation for graduate school to his extensive research and plans to pursue research developing trapped ion technologies, a candidate platform for quantum information processing.
