Upcoming Events from OGS for Summer 2022

All OGS events are open to all current Northeastern students

Time Management

May 17th from 2-3pm EST, Virtual on GoToWebinar

As students, sometimes the hardest part of your academic experience isn’t managing your course content, but rather managing all of your myriad obligations in a relatively short span of time. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the underlying causes of procrastination and how to overcome them so that you can focus on efficiency and productivity. You’ll also come away with concrete strategies that will aid in determining which of your competing priorities should come first in a given moment and establishing a schedule that will actually help you achieve balance.

Annual Traditions

Every year you can look forward to special programming from OGS that celebrates annual traditions.


Carnevale celebrates the rich diversity found on campus through the promotion of intercultural awareness and exploration during the months of February and March. A variety of festivities will encourage a connection between members of the Northeastern community, while highlighting the wonderful differences between our backgrounds and lifestyles. This collaboration and participation emphasizes the existence of a singular beautiful humanity here at Northeastern.

Carnevale has a special focus on student-led programming. Student groups are encouraged to submit a proposal to run an event in partnership with OGS during Carnevale. All students are welcome and encouraged to attend events.

International Education Week

Every November, the Office of Global Services promotes a robust calendar of event programming across Northeastern University in celebration of International Education Week, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education, which promotes global education and exchange experiences.

With over 14,000 international students and scholars and hundreds of intercultural opportunities across the globe, Northeastern recognizes the interdependence among nations and values the diversity of our collective experiences, perspectives, and thoughts. This rich institution truly is greater than the sum of its parts.


Thanksgiving is a national holiday in the U.S. and Canada, similar to other harvest festivals celebrated in countries all over the world. We at OGS want to make sure that you are included in this national tradition and that you feel at home on campus. Check this page to see what events will be offered in late November!


Diwali, Deepavali or Dipavali is a four to five day-long festival of lights, which is celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and some Buddhists every autumn in the northern hemisphere. NU hosts a celebration full of culture, food, dance and musical performances each year to celebrate the holiday.
