Meet the graduates: Wendy Chu

Wendy Chu chose to attend North­eastern because she felt the uni­ver­sity “stretched the def­i­n­i­tion of a col­lege stu­dent.” Chu’s many accom­plish­ments include a co-​​op at a White House ini­tia­tive, studying polit­ical theory and sus­tain­able urban devel­op­ment on Dia­logues in China and the Nether­lands, and working across mar­keting, busi­ness devel­op­ment, and project man­age­ment teams at student-​​led and tech star­tups. “I’ll remember that any­thing felt pos­sible here,” she says. This fall, she will attend Har­vard Law School.

Northeastern’s Steven Vollmer explains why the con­di­tion, typ­i­cally the result of warming ocean tem­per­a­tures, could lead to “the ocean’s equiv­a­lent of a rain­forest with no trees.”
