Samantha Hirshland

Philosophy, BS


Samantha started at Northeastern in the fall of 2015, two years after graduating from high school. Her experiences living and working near Boston between high school and college caused her to learn about and become interested in economic and moral issues related to healthcare. She decided to come to Northeastern because of its emphasis on career exploration and community engagement.

Samantha’s Path

“Philosophy professors were excited about mentoring students. After attending a department bowling event, I decided to declare a major in philosophy because I enjoyed the community of students, faculty, and staff.  I appreciated having a major where asking lots of questions was not only tolerated, but encouraged.”
