With recent focus on developing opportunities for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, Northeastern University is slated to open a new space in Silicon Valley. The satellite campus, coined Northeastern University – Silicon Valley, will include an 8,000-square-foot space owned by Integrated Device Technology (IDT), set to open in the fall, as well as several smaller hubs in major companies around the city that will open at a later date.
Almost a year ago to the day, 19-year-old University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) student Madison Holleran jumped from a Philadelphia parking garage to her death. Yesterday, Holleran’s family released the suicide note she wrote.
With its dive bar atmosphere, plethora of Northeastern students and people sporting sweatshirts and gym clothes, it’s safe to say that almost anyone can feel comfortable at Conor Larkin’s, which once again snagged the title of Best Campus Bar. The Irish-American pub and grill offers about 20 beers on tap and large portions of food – like the much-loved buffalo chicken nachos – for college-student-approved prices, and brunch on the weekends. Northeastern students who frequent the bar agree that everyone knows each other there, and that the bar has a great feel.
