A soon-to-be graduate of the Bouvé College of Health Sciences with a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy, Jordan Goodman has an extensive list of accomplishments, both academic and extracurricular. She holds a 3.989 GPA, has been on the Dean’s List since 2016, and is a member of the University Honors program. Additionally, she has been a tutor and an advisor for BBYO— a local chapter of an international teen-led Jewish youth group.
Jordan has proven her leadership ability time and again throughout her tenure at Northeastern. She has held leadership positions in the Northeastern Resident Student Association, Chi Omega sorority, and Northeastern Panhellenic Council. According to Dean Carmen Sceppa, “Jordan is a true leader who leads with humility and grace, creating an inclusive environment where all team members are cherished for their abilities to contribute to the cause.”
As Dean Sceppa said, Jordan creates an inclusive environment around her. That coincides with her passion for social justice—something she was able to focus on during her Honors first-year inquiry course on the History of the North of Ireland. Her involvement in the Northeastern Community showcased her commitment to inclusion. Jordan was a Resident Assistant to a building of international and foreign exchange students.
With so many achievements and awards—Huntington 100, President’s Award, multiple scholarships and induction into National Residence Hall Honorary (top 1% of student leaders on campus)—Jordan considers one to be her most significant: creating a need-based scholarship. “Many believe that Greek life consists of only wealthy individuals, and I wanted to make sure that it was an inclusive community for all,” she says. The scholarship helps pay for dues through a confidential platform for women who needed financial assistance. “Women would be able to continue to engage in something much larger than themselves and continue to call the organization that means so much to them their home.”
After Jordan graduates in May, she plans to complete three clinical experiences as part of the sixth year of her Northeastern PT program. In May 2022 she will have earned her DPT.
