Student Leaders

Our student leaders are excited to share their experiences with you as you explore.

We know that students enjoy learning from other students, so we offer a network of peer support with the help of many enthusiastic and successful student leaders. We encourage you to connect with them as you explore.

Student Leader Roles

Teaching Assistant
Your Teaching Assistant is assigned to your Connections & Decisions class and facilitates activities to help you reflect on your experiences. They also share their experiences and help you learn about academic and experiential opportunities at Northeastern. Liaison Liaisons serve as a key contact for undeclared while they are abroad during their first semester. Liaisons are responsible for scheduling virtual meetings for one-on-one and group conferences about exploration, academic interests, and spring course registration.

Peer Mentor
Your Peer Mentor is assigned to your Connections & Decisions class and provides you with guidance and encouragement as you explore. Peer Mentors answer your questions, share their own experiences, and encourage you to become your own best self-advocate.

Peer Mentors and Teaching Assistants who have shown outstanding initiative and active engagement in the Explore Program are invited to serve as Coordinators. Coordinators help with administrative tasks and oversee planning for the undeclared student group NU Horizons.

Service-Learning Teaching Assistants
S-LTAs work with service-learning sections of Connections & Decisions to coordinate service placements and facilitate reflection activities.

Front Desk Assistant
Students who have federal work-study can apply to work at the front desk in 1 Meserve. Our front desk assistants check students in for advising appointments, greet and direct students and visitors, and assist with administrative projects related to the Explore Program’s social media and blog.
