Join us for RISE on Thursday, April 11 from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM ET in Matthews Arena — and live in our virtual gallery!
RISE is the showcase for research and creative projects being undertaken by everyone at Northeastern: learners from every year of study, every major, every campus! Hundreds of Northeastern’s talented and ambitious undergraduate and graduate students will share work on a wide-array of topics, ranging from maternal mortality in the United States to detecting life on Mars to axolotl limb regeneration and more….
Registration will open in February and provides access to the live event — and if you are not on our Boston campus, gives you access to the virtual gallery of all the posters.
**Those attending in-person RISE please note that no large bags are permitted!
For safety reasons, the following items are not permitted inside Matthews Arena:
- Any outside food or beverages
- Large bags or backpacks over the size of 12″x12″x12″
- Laser pointers
- Firearms or other weapons
- Artificial noisemakers
Pets are prohibited in all University buildings out of consideration for the general community and to maintain a clean and healthy environment. Exceptions are made for service dogs and other service animals.
The following is the definition of Service Animal as used by the Disability Resource Center, which is the office on the Northeastern campus delegated with the authority to review and approve animals.
A “Service Animal” is a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. A miniature horse may also be permitted as a Service Animal. Other animals do not qualify as Service Animals. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, performing some simple tasks such as turning on a light switch, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service Animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a Service Animal has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as Service Animals. (Sections II, III, IV, and V of this document apply to Service Animals).
