Spain Community Speaker Event with Mr. Eduardo Serra
6:30 – 9 p.m. | Madrid
The post-Cold War world has produced new challenges for Europe, causing a strategic shift in politics. We see opportunities through emerging economies and the rise of new leadership. However, growing concern around the global spread of terrorism poses new threats and risks for western democracies. Increased defense spending is further compounding the issue. Eduardo Serra Rexach, President of Everis, former Defense Minister of Spain, will share his experience and insight on the new political reality of Europe.

New York City
In April we spent a week in New York City. Over 200 alumni and friends enjoyed a wide range of activities including a community service day with Concrete Safaris, an alumna led yoga class, a pasta-making class, a Circa Brewing outing in Brooklyn, a family day at the Bronx zoo, an an afterHOURS social event at the 40/40 club. The week was headlined by a Northeastern Circuits event: Journey to the New York Times, featuring Michael Slackman, AMD’84, International Editor of the NYTimes.
In February over 450 of your fellow Northeastern alumni, students, parents, staff, and friends joined the fun at Jetblue Park. Guests had the opportunity to meet Paws and Wally, get signatures and photographs from former Red Sox pitcher, Derek Lowe, and hear about exciting new university initiatives. The day was filled with energy and excitement.
Our Northeastern Near You series kicked off in September 2017 with a tour across the state of California. More than a hundred of you joined us for 13 events, in 9 cities, over 6 days! Huskies were turned on their heads (literally!) in a paddleboard yoga class in Marina del Rey, trained in classical French techniques in a macaron-making class in San Francisco, gathered for a community barbeque in La Jolla, and brought behind the scenes in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles!CLOSE
