There are a few concepts that are inherently Northeastern-esque. Entrepreneurial spirit. Innovation. Robot-proof. And, above all, co-op. It is not only one of the defining characteristics of Northeastern University, but also what most of us say when people ask why we chose Northeastern. When we think ...

When the student body elected President Suchira Sharma and Executive Vice President Paulina Ruiz, it was historic. Both Sharma and Ruiz are women of color, and their election broke Northeastern’s “glass ceiling.” It’d be easy to say the election of Nathan Hostert and Dylan Balcom, two white...
