Our final featured senior is… me! I’m the graduating V.P. of Media and Marketing, Brenna Eagan, writing my 30th and final blog post on behalf of SAA.
I joined SAA at the start of my freshman year and served on the community service and newsletter committees. During both semesters of my sophomore year, I served as the Newsletter Chair. Inspired to take on more leadership, I decided to run for the Executive Board Liaison position. Over the course of that year, the e-board and I felt it was time to establish a Vice President of Media and Marketing position, which I filled for my fourth and final year in SAA. Additionally, I was able to attend four District 1 Conferences at UMass Amherst, UConn, WPI, and Bryant and one CASE ASAP National Convention in Indianapolis.
I’ve been running this blog, as well as Facebook and Twitter, all year – and now I confidently turn it over to the new V.P. of Media and Marketing, Emily Chiasson. It has been a pleasure serving in this role and I’ll miss every part of it, almost as much as I’ll miss all of you. Thanks!
Hometown: Hadley, MA (say it with me, e-boarders – “I’m from Hadley!”)
Major: Journalism with a minor in Communication Studies
Co-ops: Copywriter at Hasbro, Inc. and Media Relations Assistant at Northeastern University.
Favorite ‘90s tv show?
Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
What is your favorite movie?
I am obsessed with The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I was that weird girl in middle school who wore “the precious” around her neck…
Favorite Harry Potter character?
Sirius Black. Handsome, dangerous, turns into a dog – what’s not to love?!

I have made so many great friends through SAA that I would not have even met otherwise. Joining SAA was one of the best decisions I made at Northeastern, and I’m even happier that I ran for e-board. I’ve had the opportunity to meet celebrities, travel across the country, and attend more events at Northeastern than I ever thought possible.
How do you hope to give back to the Northeastern community as an alumna?
I definitely plan on coming back any time I’m invited by SAA or OAR! I’d also love to hire co-ops some day, provided I am actually employed myself.
