Students Share Global Co-op Experiences
The Curry Student Center Indoor Quad transformed into a global co-op networking portal on Tuesday night, when 130 students connected with some three dozen of their peers who convened to discuss their recent international co-op experiences.
The young global citizens shared co-op stories and advice at the event, which was organized by Northeastern’s Global Experience Office.
Caroline Fried, SSH’17, a fourth-year student studying international affairs and history, worked in China earlier this year as a teaching assistant at the Dandelion School, which serves hundreds of students from low-income migrant families.
FRIED’S ADVICE for her peers considering global co-op:
“Take every opportunity that comes to you. Being immersed in another culture makes you challenge your assumptions and learn new perspectives.”
