Three students. Four cities. One empowering opportunity.

Welcome to the Empower Blog, the official online record of musings from Empower: The Campaign for Northeastern University. We’re undertaking the most ambitious fundraising drive in our history—raising $1 billion by 2017—and we’re bringing some of our students along for the ride.

These students were chosen for their social media savvy and their love of Northeastern to document upcoming campaign events in San Jose, San Francisco, New York City, and Hong Kong. Their mission: to tweet, post, and blog about their experiences interacting with the remarkable alumni, faculty, and staff of this university.

But first, we had to choose our ambassadors from a tight field of talented students. Watch our winners’ reactions:
