Get Ready to Soar!

Golden Eagle Welcome Day provides an opportunity for Northeastern faculty and staff to welcome the newest members of our Golden Eagle family—our new first-year and transfer students.

Face masks are required for on campus events.

Who is invited?

Our event is designed to welcome the incoming Fall 2021 freshman class as well as transfer students who will begin in Fall 2021. Current student workers, faculty and staff will welcome you to the University.


This event is specifically for first-year and new transfer students, so we ask that you do not bring guests.
