Testimonials

  • John Stevens
    "The game of hockey has given me so many great experiences throughout my life, and there is one in particular that will stick with me. Our trip to Belfast was a once in a lifetime opportunity to share and experience life, hockey, culture and academics in a foreign country.  Being able to influence and experience the amazing Northern Irish culture allowed our team to bond on a new level. This trip was the starting point to one of the most amazing runs and seasons that I have ever been apart of. "
  • Margaret Walsh
    "The trip to England was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced as a student-athlete. It was an honor to represent our university abroad, and to foster relationships with the welcoming and generous residents of Henley on Thames. This experience allowed our team to share in the global learning that defines Northeastern, deepening our engagement with and appreciation for this incredible institution. "
  • Jim Madigan
    "Our trip to Belfast was a trip of a lifetime. We were able to enjoy a first-class hockey experience but equally important was being able to explore another part of the world rich with history and tradition. Our players had the unique opportunity to learn more about the history and culture of Belfast and Northern Ireland, visit young students in two elementary schools and interact daily with the wonderful people of Belfast who welcomed us so graciously into their city. This experience broadened our student-athletes perspective on life and help them realize the importance of appreciating different views and cultures. "

    "The opportunity to go to Cuba at the end of my senior year was truly the best possible ending to my athletic career at Northeastern. I got to travel to a land trapped in time with some of my favorite people and gain experiences that will last us a lifetime. I think it is so important that high-level athletes—who typically have schedules which prevent them from traveling abroad—get the chance to broaden their views on the world and make the realization that there are so many cultures and lifestyles that we can learn lessons from. It was truly a chance to exchange global views while simultaneously playing a simple ball game together. "

    "What an eye opening experience it was! The people of Cuba always have smiles on their faces even through their tougher times. That taught myself and our team a little bit about staying positive when you are hit with adversity and to take nothing for granted! The trip showed us to appreciate what we have and not think about what we don’t have.  It was a truly amazing experience that I hope every Northeastern student athlete gets to experience. "
