Major: Economics
Minor: Mathematics


In Rachel’s senior year of high school, she took AP Economics and fell in love with the subject. After that course she knew she wanted to continue studying economics in college. Rachel chose Northeastern University because she wanted to be in a city and also have the campus feel. On her campus visit, Rachel knew Northeastern was where she wanted to be for her undergraduate studies.

“In my experience, the professors in the Econ Department truly care about their students. They take interest in their students, which has helped me thrive in my classes. Dr. Madhavi Venkatesan really worked with me during my first semester on campus, when I was feeling overwhelmed with the transition.  It gave me confidence in my abilities because I was being taken seriously as a young student. I would recommend trying out opportunities that your professors give you, even if it is out of your comfort zone because you never know what you could get out of it.”
