- Northeastern University
I love all of the opportunities that Northeastern provides for me, both as a student and a person. There are so many different ways for me to advance myself here—from rigorous classes, co-op, and international study opportunities, to the wide variety of student organizations on campus.
I especially appreciate the emphasis on hands-on experience through experiential education. Even as a sophomore, I have already completed a study abroad program for honors students in Italy, and am about to begin a co-op position with Boston Consulting Group, a prestigious global management consulting firm. Northeastern’s invaluable connections within the worldwide business community have opened so many doors to students like me. As a finance and economics student at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, I feel I’ve had an incredible competitive advantage in the early stages of building my career.
While I’m anxious to apply what I’ve learned through my co-op, I’m also benefiting from the many other ways Northeastern is helping me to learn and grow, whether through its on-campus speaker series or leadership retreats sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations. I plan to make the most of every co-op experience and am excited for the challenge of putting what I’ve learned in the classroom into practice.
Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, I am on my way to building a fulfilling life and career in a field that I love. I truly appreciate your support.
