Hello and happy spring break!

As we exit the awards season that included the Golden Globes, Grammy’s and Academy Awards, we quickly enter into the beginning of the awards season on college campuses around the country. Northeastern is no exception – my office alone has three different awards ceremonies coming up in the next two months. Here’s a bit of information about each of them…

Advisor Appreciation Reception

2013 Advisor Reception - Save the Date

The Advisor Appreciation Reception is up first in our line-up. This event is scheduled for the afternoon of Thursday, March 28th in the McLeod Suites in Curry Student Center. It is an opportunity for the Northeastern community to honor our student organizations advisors, and thank them for the hard work and dedication they devote to student leaders over the course of each year.

We honor our all-star advisors with a couple of awards. If you think your advisor is deserving of an award, we ask that you take a few moments to submit a nomination (deadline to submit is Wednesday, March 13th at noon). We are also collecting photo submissions of your organization in action. Please send photos to And please RSVP if you plan to attend. This event is open to students, faculty and staff, and we hope you will join us!
