What quirky traditions or fun facts about Northeastern University should I know?

Calling all Huskies! I'm putting together my college list and Northeastern's caught my eye, but I want to go beyond just the stats and rankings. Does anyone know some fun facts or cool traditions at Northeastern that could give me a better feel for the campus vibe?

Hey there! My son is currently at Northeastern and he really enjoys the vibrant community there. One cool tradition you might like is the Husky Hunt, a massive, campus-wide scavenger hunt that their student affairs coordinates. Teams race to solve puzzles and challenges for a whole 24 hours - it's quite the bonding experience!

And of course, Northeastern is known for its co-op program, where students get practical work experiences that complement their studies. It really shapes the culture on campus because at any given time, a significant portion of students is off working in their field, which adds a professional vibe. Hope this helps give you a sense of the Northeastern spirit!
