Community Ambassadors

Community Ambassadors are Northeastern students who live off-campus in the local neighborhoods! CAs can answer questions you may have about off-campus living. CAs run programs, educate students on tenants’ rights and responsibilities, help you get started and plan your move off campus. CAs provide opportunities to make a positive impact in our Boston neighborhoods by connecting you to your community.  They work for Off Campus Engagement and Support and can help you with tenant issues and guide you through our Lease Genius resources. Email or book an appointment with a CA!

Favorite thing about Boston:

Exploring different cuisines, walking in the parks, visiting museums!

Exploring Different Cuisines: Boston has a wide range of restaurants and food trucks that serve up delicious cuisine from all over the world. From Italian to Chinese to Mexican, there’s something for every palate. Some of my personal favorite spots are Red, White Ramen, Clouds and Spirits, Hotpot, Avenue and Wow Tikka for some of the best food in the city.

Walking in the Parks: Boston is home to some beautiful parks, including the Boston Common, the Public Garden, and the Esplanade. These parks offer scenic views, plenty of green space, and a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. A walk through these parks is a great way to clear my mind and enjoy the outdoors.

Visiting Museums: Boston is a cultural hub with many world-renowned museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Science, and Harvard Museums. These museums offer a variety of exhibits that showcase art, history, and science. It’s a great way to learn something new and expand my horizons.
