Application for Spring 2023 is open!

CSSH Circle is a community within the college for incoming international students to meet other new students along with continuing students. Throughout the semester CSSH Circle Program Assistants (PAs) organize various events along with their Circle teams. PAs play a key role in guiding new students by sharing their stories at Northeastern, CSSH and in Boston. PAs also serve as resources helping students learn about and connect with resources on campus, answering any questions they might have, or leading them to someone who might know. Additionally, there are opportunities to develop skills by taking on roles in Social Media, Event Planning, Outreach, and Peer Training.
