مكتب الفوركس President Joseph E. Aoun and Student Government Association President Suchira Sharma welcomed Northeastern’s 120th class Tuesday at Convocation by reminding them to stay innovative and stand up for their values.

The focus of the morning, however, was Aoun’s speech, where he promised freshmen that education would make them irreplaceable, even as technology advances over the course of the next two decades.

Because Northeastern is a place where you can do exactly that — change the world. Make these decisions by first choosing to stand up, just as you did moments ago. Stand up for what’s right. Stand up for your peers. And stand up against tired conventions and constricting norms: Our world needs it.” The speakers challenged the incoming freshmen multiple times to combat injustice in the world with the education they receive from Northeastern.

People are afraid to say, ‘I’m going to college, because I don’t have my papers.’ That’s unacceptable. Don’t accept it, change it. That’s why you’re here. You’re here to make the world a different place.”

Always seek to innovate. You don’t have to start your own company, or have a world-renowned co-op. All you must do to innovate is to leave the space you occupy — whatever that may be, a classroom, a co-op, a student organization, a team — better than you found it.”

However, he said he was glad to be introduced to Aoun, who he thought was funny.

“(I have) been looking forward to getting here, just getting started for the whole summer,” Mohamed said. “Now that I’m finally here it doesn’t really feel like it’s started yet, but we’re getting there.”
