One husky’s trash, is another husky’s treasure. The annual NU Trash 2 Treasure Sale is perfect for those moving into your first apartment. You can take a look at the incredible prices here!

Fall Fest 2014

This is the event you DON’T wanna miss. Fall Fest is celebrating the beginning of fall semester with food, games, live music, a giant Slip N’ Slide and your chance to learn about our almost 400 student organizations and clubs. Whether you’re in it for free food, swag or looking for ways to get involved, this is our biggest event of the year!

Wednesday, September 7th

Okay, maybe not the most fun event, but the part-time career fair on Wednesday will be your best bet for finding an on-campus job. Stop by if you’re looking for some extra fall cash!


Although Northeastern’s Live Music Association hasn’t released the artist yet, you can expect a concert in AfterHours with a nationally touring act. Last year, we were lucky enough to have BORNS come, and the line was out the door and wrapped around Curry. It starts at 8:30 pm,  but plan on getting there earlier to beat the crowd!

Interested in joining Panhellenic and Sorority Life? Meet the nine Panhel chapters and get all the details about recruitment at True Life in the Curry Ballroom from 8:30 – 10:00 pm.

Thursday, September 8th


Fall-cappella showcases all of the vocal talent that Northeastern has to offer. All of the groups will perform in the Indoor Quad of Curry from 7 – 9 pm. PS: This is the closest to Pitch Perfect you’re gonna get!
