  Without these things… we would never survive our 5 years here. 1. Rebecca’s Getting food at Rebecca’s is like participating in the Hunger Games… but so worth it. 2. Wollaston’s It’s pricey but so damn convenient. 3. Our co-op advisors We need them to help us to figure out the puzzle that is our complicated Northeastern schedules. Otherwise we’d be like this… READ MORE

10 Things We'll Miss about HIMYM

By Emily Feltault
March 31, 2014 - 8:11am

All good things must come to an end. This includes the television shows we grew up with and learned to love, like Full House and Boy Meets World. The next greatest loss of this kind will be that of How I Met Your Mother, a sitcom that centers on a father, Ted Mosby, telling his two children just how he met their mother, a story that went on for nine years and is sadly wrapping up TODAY.   READ MORE

The Best (and Worst) April Fool's Jokes

By Her Campus Northeastern
March 27, 2014 - 8:00am

April Fool's Day was fun in first grade (think whoopee cushions and prank calls), but pranks are for big people, too! Being in college doesn't mean that you have to give up the holiday fun. In fact, it's time to step up your game! After all, there's no better way to procrastinate a project than by messing with your loved ones. Disclaimer: We aren't responsible for the outcomes of these pranks. If your roommate is a little crazy or you and your S/O are on the rocks, this probably isn't the time. Use discretion, people.

Your Next Spring Break

I spent my spring break in Puerto Rico: digging a lot of holes, harvesting oranges and cow-peas, learning to Bomba (a traditional Puerto Rican dance), and building permaculture gardens – all while doused in as much SPF 45 as I could get my hands on. Oh, and there were some beaches too… READ MORE

Northeastern's Unconventional Schedule

By Gwen Schanker
March 17, 2014 - 9:15am

  It’s undeniable that, due to the co-op program and subsequent need to take summer classes, Northeastern has a pretty bizarre schedule. Returning from a first-week-in-March Spring Break and being only a few weeks away from starting summer in April has caused me to start thinking about why Northeastern’s schedule is the way it is, and what the pros and cons are. Before writing this article, I interviewed a few other students on campus and found a general consensus – Northeastern’s schedule isn’t exactly ideal, but combined with the other aspects that make the school unique, it’s hard to picture it any other way. “It’s different, but I feel like we have to do it that way in order to graduate in 4 or 5 years,” said Sarah Tahami, a freshman communications...

Have You Seen This Symbol on Facebook?

Post. Share. Tweet. Repeat.The routine of such practices has made social media a powerful outlet for spreading ideas. Pair that with an even more compelling movement for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram users to get behind, and the result is an explosive national campaign to transform society’s perceptions on accessibility.   READ MORE

Op-Ed: Northeastern Mock Eviction—Not a Threat, But a Conversation Starter

By Stephanie Cohn
March 10, 2014 - 8:00am

Recently some Northeastern residents woke up to find eviction notices under their doors. Personally, when I saw the bold letters telling me I would have to vacate my apartment by Wednesday I almost freaked out… then I quickly noticed the bottom of the letter. In equally as big and bold letters, the notice said “This is not a real eviction notice. #BostonMockEviction.” I was intrigued, so I read on. The letters showed the students a different perspective from a pro-Palestinian rights organization to represent the experience of Palestinians being evicted from their homes by Israeli occupation.

NU Sex Week: Recap

By Morgan Weadock
February 27, 2014 - 4:10pm

Each year, Northeastern RSA hosts Sex Week during spring semester. This year, the theme was ‘Delicious,’ and each event involved some sort of dessert or other kind of treat. The event schedule kicked off Sunday night, February 9, with the authors of “I <3 Female Orgasm” coming to speak. Both female and male students attended. The next few days included games with sex-themed prizes like STD trivia, a cooking class on how to make aphrodisiac dishes, and an exotic dance class. As the last event, Don Jon, a film about a porn-addicted man starring and directed by Joseph Gordon Levitt with Scarlett Johansson and Juliette Moore, was shown in AfterHours. READ MORE

Spring Brokers - How to Spend Spring Break Broke

By Pim Senanarong
February 27, 2014 - 10:45am

Who doesn't dream of the quintessential fun-filled, carefree, responsibility-less Spring break college kids are notorious for having? Months before the break, girls go on insane diets for the perfect beach bod, boys prep their minds and livers (those of legal drinking age, of course) for the epic adventure, and everyone begins the required process of obsessively googling hotel rates. While many have been saving up since the fall for this grand adventure guaranteed to produce many “unforgettable” memories, others find themselves taciturnly turning down invites to go to Cancun while morosely looking at their thinning wallets. Yes, money—the thing that bogs down and fuels the average college student....
