Northeastern University celebrated the co-op accomplishments of 17 high-achieving seniors on Wednesday afternoon at the 45th annual Outstanding Cooperative Education Awards.
Three students received named awards. Victor Cruz, SSH’16, received the Paul M. Pratt Award, which is presented to the student who best demonstrates exceptional personal and professional growth as a result of his or her co-op experiences. Cruz did two of his three co-ops with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, a nonprofit based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and is currently exploring the possibility of launching a social enterprise before enrolling in law school.
Farhana Hussain, SSH’16, received the William Jefferson Alcott Jr. Award, which is presented to the student who best utilizes his or her academic training in a creative way to make a positive contribution to society while demonstrating exceptional achievement in cooperative education. Hussain completed co-ops with the International Center for Journalists, the NATO Defense College, and the Atlantic Council, a trio of global experiences that she plans to parlay into a full time job in the nation’s capital.
