THE YEAR IN REVIEW
JULY 2016–JUNE 2017
MANY PATHS, ONE COMMUNITY
Whether a student earns a formal degree, acquires a certificate, or simply enrolls in a bootcamp program, they are considered Northeastern University alumni for life.
IN THEIR SHOES
Each week, we invite our alumni to take over the Alumni Relations Instagram account, and give us a glimpse into their lives. Northeastern’s diversity, entrepreneurial spirit, and global presence stays with alumni for life! Below is a snapshot of the stories from 2016–2017.

WE ENGAGE GLOBALLY
The Northeastern University community is spread across the country and around the world. Our domestic and international communities provide alumni, parents, students, and friends with a vital connection to the university and to each other.
I am a proud alumna and even prouder to note that Northeastern’s alumni are the backbone of the university that represent not only the university’s past, but also the strength and vibrancy of its future. So let’s continue to empower our dynamic network and extend our global outreach for our future generation.PICHITRA PATHOMSAK, DMSB'93
It was great to see the Northeastern community launch in Seoul. It’s a perfect compliment to the co-op systems extended in Asia. In Korea, networking is everything. And the launch of the community represents a great opportunity for young students to begin the networking that will be required for a successful career, and for existing practitioners to enhance existing networks. The camaraderie is real and it’s great to be a part of it.PAUL KIM, NUSL'98
COMMUNITIES COME TOGETHER AT EVENTS
WHAT OUR ALUMNI ARE SAYING
This workshop was immensely helpful for me to define concrete ways to enhance my brand and become a better resource for students. I am definietely interested in more workshops like this one, and will certainly attend a few of the upcoming webinars.
It was helpful to learn about the resources available to graduates through the university and to hear how other people were exploring new career options.
The presenter and moderator were both very attentive to user questions. It was a fantastic experience.
Very unique experience and one I would not have done on my own. So interesting!
I tell all my alumni friends about the events and I hope the turnout for these events continues to grow so we can keep doing them!
Northeastern alumni are learners for life, and we understand that finding time as professionals can be difficult. To facilitate learning when and where alumni want it, the Office of Alumni Relations partnered with the Professional Advancement Network (PAN) to launch Lifelong Learning: On Demand. Alumni can take month-long “mini-courses” on professional development and build new skills to stay ahead of the curve—all at their own schedule.
MAKING THEIR MARK IN THE WORLD
Northeastern alumni are innovative, entrepreneurial, and accomplished. Here are a few of our many success stories from the past year.
