  • Past Events


    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!
