Community, Civility, Culture and Choice!


As an off-campus student, you play an important role in how neighbors perceive you and Northeastern. Create positive interactions and show neighbors respect. How?


1. Do community Service

2. Wave hello

3. A genuine "how are you?" or a smile speaks volumes to your character.

On the other hand, negative interactions cause them to view you as disrespectful.
Respect the differences of individuals and treat others in a civil and respectful fashion. Simply, treat others as you would want to be treated, and remember that your actions and choices affect others. Demonstrate your commitment to civility and positive choices by doing something nice for a neighbor!

Ask a Roaming Husky
Dear Roaming Husky  
Dear Roaming Husky
I live in a first floor apartment and some of my windows don't have screens. Bugs get in and I'm concerned about safety. Can I ask my landlord to provide screens? 
- Bugged Out
Dear Bugged Out,
Landlords are responsible for providing screens in all windows and doors from the fourth floor down from May 15 to Oct 30! Ask your landlord to provide these screens and be sure to lock ALL windows and doors when leaving your apartment AND before going to bed! The safest time to have your windows unlocked/open is when you or your roommates are home
