Gearing up for Welcome Week

Yes, it’s that time of year! Welcome Week is upon us. The bulk of Welcome Week events begin next week on September 6th and the Library will be welcoming new students to Northeastern’s campus as well as saying “hello again!” to students who are back to start another academic year. The first day of classes is September 7th, but all week Northeastern has scheduled activities for newly enrolled NU students. For a complete list of planned events visit Northeastern’s Welcome Week site. The Library is excited about participating in the activities! We have some plans in store so that students, new and old, can acquaint (or reacquaint) themselves with the Library and our services. Here is an overview: ClubSnell: Live and In Person.
