2017 PhD Pop-Up: A Networking Social and University Resource Showcase Just for PhD Students

Northeastern University’s PhD students gathered on Centennial Common on Wednesday, September 13th for the Fall 2017 PhD Pop-Up. The event, organized jointly by Northeastern University’s PhD Network, Graduate Student Government, and Division for Student Affairs, provided PhD students, faculty, and staff with opportunities to network and learn about available Northeastern University resources.

Nearly 500 attendees had the opportunity to network and learn about university resources from more than 30 offices across campus. In case you missed it, or if you want to learn more, featured Northeastern University Resources available to PhD students related to Community, Well Being, Academics, Research, and Career are listed below. These and additional resources are maintained at PhD Network Resources.
