Greetings from Northeastern University. Students are invited to an upcoming information session being hosted in our area. During the event, students will have an opportunity to learn more about Northeastern's academic programs, experiential learning opportunities, and more.
We encourage students to join us for this special event and share this registration link with them.
At the event, we'll provide information about Northeastern and share the latest updates, including:
- More than 170 combined majors are now available across our eight academic colleges and programs. These interdisciplinary majors combine two fields of study into a single degree, empowering students to explore their passions while staying on track for graduation.
- Northeastern offers unrivaled opportunities for your students to grow in ways they never imagined. Last year, we placed 11,000+ students in co-op positions, and 2,000+ participated in a global learning experience—immersing themselves in new cultures and exchanging ideas with people around the world. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our students rose to the occasion, with many participating in experiential learning opportunities virtually.
- We take a comprehensive approach to the application process, with the goal of building a diverse community of intellectually motivated and engaged students. In addition to joining our Boston campus as a first-year student in the fall, a student has many other exciting ways to join our community through programs such as The N.U.in Program, Global ConnEXions (a virtual first-year experience), NU Immerse, and NU Bound.
Please note that Northeastern University requires that all attendees adhere to COVID-19 guidelines and all attendees will be required to wear masks while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. For additional information about upcoming information sessions in your area, including COVID-19 guidelines for events, please visit our website.

Greetings from Middlebury!
Virtual Information Sessions: Several times each week, students can join a virtual information session hosted by our Senior Admissions Fellows. These Zoom gatherings will provide a brief overview of the Middlebury experience and will allow plenty of time for prospective applicants to ask questions of current Middlebury students.
Connect with Your Regional Counselor: Please find your regional admissions counselor here and click on their name to see their available meeting times. Your counselor’s link may be useful to post in Naviance, or whatever software you may use to connect your students with colleges and universities.
Take a Virtual Tour: Tour campus with our students, in either English or in Spanish. Students can also explore using our interactive virtual tour.
We look forward to connecting with your students, and hope they’ll take advantage of one or a few of these opportunities to get to know Middlebury.
Maroon Fridays: These are face-to-face events that are academic-college specific. During a Friday on campus, students and parents will take a tour with a current student and learn about different aspects of campus life (academics, student involvement, financial aid, scholarships, admissions and much more)! There is a $10 fee to attend Maroon Fridays. These are similar to our former Spring Preview Days.
️ Campus Visits: Available most weekdays, your students can experience MSU on campus by meeting with an Admissions Counselor and taking a tour with a Roadrunner, an MSU student. They can pre-arrange a departmental meeting to tailor their experience more.
Virtual Visits: Do you have students who need an online option? We have virtual information sessions similar to what students would experience during a Campus Visit. Learn about MSU from an Admissions Counselor or a representative from your student's academic college.
However, if you have students who are already admitted to Mississippi State University, we encourage them to attend one of our Academic Insight events in February. These events are exclusive to admitted students and help them get familiar with their academic college and department (professors, current students, etc.).
They'll hear from our faculty and current Red Hawks about all the unique opportunities and experiences available to them, learn more about our academic programs and join us for a campus tour to see why every moment is elevated at Montclair State!
