Anonymous asked: Hey, I'm confused about how Freshman year is going to play out. What courses do I take Fall semester and do I get into my major starting spring? And for our concentrations, are we only limited to 4 courses?

I can speak from my past experience with the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, but I am unsure how other colleges within Northeastern handle this. For me, my classes were chosen for me for the fall semester, a couple of which were related to my major. As for spring courses and your question about your concentration, your academic advisor, who will be assigned to you once you arrive on campus, will be able to help you out. Best of luck!

rudrani-05 asked: Hey Sam. I read about your dual major, I am also planning to do something like this :D Could you please let me know that when and how do we choose our majors??

Hi there! Once you arrive on campus in the fall, you will be assigned an academic advisor. This will be your go-to person for planning out your classes and declaring your major or any minors. As for your LLC question, I would encourage you to visit https://www.northeastern.edu/admissions/admittedstudents/housing/llc.html and read through the options. I was a part of the corporate explorers LLC and really enjoyed my experience with it, but it is all up to you and the experience you would like to have. Feel free to ask any other questions you might come across!

Anonymous asked: My son is an incoming freshman who is an undeclared business major. Can you give us some general pointers for this summer's preparation, orientation, and fall move in. Also, any business major specific pointers. Are there any blogs/websites that you recommend to help incoming freshman?

Absolutely! Once the May 1st deposit deadline passes, Northeastern should start to email out information concerning orientation sessions. The school offers several sessions throughout the summer, so you will be able to select a time that works best. Fall move-in is made really easy, with upperclassmen there to help out with moving items, and check-in stations where students can get their husky ID’s. As for business specific pointers, I would try to reach out to professors once your son receives his schedule for the fall to figure out what textbooks will be needed so those can be purchased in advance, saving time and stress once the school year begins. Any college survival guide websites or blogs can definitely be helpful in answering any pressing questions he has about the college environment or experience. I wish him the best of luck, and I can always answer any other questions you might come across.

thatfrenchgirl asked: Hey Sam ! I'm Valentine and I'm going to be a freshmen at Northeastern next fall in the D'Amore McKim School of Business too ! And I'm majoring in International Business. I'm filling out my Residence Application, and I wanted from advice on the LLCs. I really like the ones like Fusion and Trailblazers since they really open up to everyone, but I also like Global Visions, but I'm scared it may be too closed up. I'm an outgoing person who likes to go out, any advice ? Thank you !

Hi Valentine, thanks for reaching out! I personally was in the Corporate Explorers LLC, which is another one of the D’Amore-McKim business tracks along with Global Visions. I found all my fellow students in my LLC to be sociable and looking to get to know each other, and it was nice to be taking similar classes when working on homework or preparing for tests. That being said, Fusion and Trailblazers would allow you to meet students from all majors within Northeastern, which would also be a cool opportunity. I think it all comes down to whether you would like to be living with other business students or mixed in with all majors. Best of luck, and feel free to reach out with any other questions!

Year 2: Check (almost)

It is hard to believe that two years have already come and gone for me at Northeastern. With just one final exam remaining next Tuesday, I can see the finish line of this Sophomore year. This past semester in particular has definitely been my toughest thus far, with 18 credits of classes and a co-op search to top it all off. It has been one giant lesson in time management and prioritizing, and I feel I have learned more than I could have ever imagined in the process! It will be nice to have a couple months of rest, but I am super excited to get back into the Boston world when I start my co-op with Life is Good! Stay tuned for updates on summer shenanigans and the New Hampshire life as I take a break from the city for a little while!

I had the opportunity to go backpacking this weekend with Sojourn Collegiate Ministry, one of the groups I am involved with on campus. We headed up to Carter Notch Hut in Gorham, New Hampshire, and got to stay overnight at the cabins on top of the mountain. It was quite the experience with some amazing views, and a great opportunity to step away from the school work before the studying for finals begins!

Anonymous asked: Can you explain more about the differences/benefits of BSBA and BSIB? Thank you!

Absolutely! Both programs are obviously run through the business school, and allow you to have concentrations in marketing, management, finance, MIS, accounting, supply chain management and entrepreneurship, or any combination of those. However, the BSIB program also requires students to study abroad for one semester in their fourth year, as well as complete an international co-op, also in the fourth year. In addition, students in BSIB are required to take a foreign language during their time at Northeastern. As for benefits, its really all in what you want to do after Northeastern. If you would like to be working abroad or in a position that would require extensive knowledge of foreign business environments, then BSIB might be something to check out! BSBA is also a business degree, but it does not have a foreign language or study abroad requirement built into the program. If you would like more information about either, I would highly recommend checking out the D’Amore-McKim website at http://damore-mckim.northeastern.edu/ugrad/.

The moving bins have arrived!! I absolutely cannot believe I move out just one week from tomorrow! This semester has been absolutely amazing, from having the opportunity to write this blog to accepting my first co-op at Life is Good! I look forward to keeping you all up to date on my adventures over the summer and on co-op! This whole college thing is going by way too quickly…

I can take scuba?

With all of the buzz about class selection for the fall (which I can happily skip thanks to co-op), I heard a rumor amongst some friends that there was a scuba diving class offered at Northeastern. And since I heard this on a day that was not April 1st, I figured I would look into it. Sure enough, I came across BIOL-1105: Beginning Scuba in our course catalogue. I suppose it makes perfect sense for our marine bio majors who will be making countless dives, but I am currently in the process of checking whether those outside the College of Science can also partake in this class, and whether or not it results in a scuba certification. Talk about a perfect class for spring semester of senior year!
