MacKenzie Nekton

Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, BS
Law and Public Policy Minor


MacKenzie joined Northeastern in Fall 2017, with her major already declared. Her freshman year classes confirmed that she was in the right place, and sparked her love of philosophy. During her time at Northeastern, MacKenzie mentored with Strong Women, Strong Girls, ran the Northeastern PPE Society, and served as chair for the Northeastern cohort of the Millennium Fellowship, as well as working as a research assistant and a teaching assistant for multiple classes. Her professors, her mentors, and her peers all contributed to her development, both professionally, academically, and personally—and she is grateful to Northeastern for the doors it has opened for her.

MacKenzie’s Path

Being a PPE major is like living with two feet on the ground and your head in the clouds – you gain both practical, empirical skills and theoretical, wide-angle knowledge. For someone like me, who both loves the messy, complex world and utopian dreams, there is no better place to be than in the Northeastern PPE program.
