He also served as the chair of the Mayor of Huntington Avenue competition and moderated the debate. In 2011, Brad attended District 1 Conference at the University of Connecticut.

What else are you involved in at Northeastern?
Aside from SAA, I helped start NU Science Magazine my freshman year. I am a member of NoLimits Dance Crew and a campus tour guide for Husky Ambassadors.
When you were five, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was little wanted to be a lawyer, needless to say that was a short lived phase after I discovered my inner geek.
Favorite ’90s TV show?
My favorite ’90s TV show was without a doubt Boy Meets World. It is still the best show ever made.
What is something that everyone in SAA might not know about you?
When I was little I thought the words to “Don’t go chasing waterfalls” were “go go Jason water faucet.”
Boloco or Qdoba?
BOLOCO BOLOCO BOLOCO! I love my freebies.
1. Summer Dialogue
How has SAA contributed to your Northeastern experience?
SAA has been a huge part of my NU experience since sophomore year when I joined. It was not only a great group of new friends but also helped me land my favorite co-op through the 5 Under 25 program.
How do you hope to give back to the Northeastern community as an alumnus?
As an alumnus I hope to continue to be actively involved with NU students through events like 5 Under 25, providing co-op opportunities or advising. And, funds permitting, it would be great to have a scholarship fund to help students in need.
