Past Events from this Semester

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!
