About Us


MathEMA is a student-run mentorship program at Northeastern University that aims to help incoming students feel more welcome and aware of the opportunities available in the math department. We connect experienced upperclassmen with young students to discuss topics like co-op, choosing classes and professors, and acclimating to college life. We also host events like virtual movie nights, coffee chats, and study halls.

Our goals are to:

  • help new students feel welcome to the Math Department.

  • increase student understanding of their peers’ background and experiences.

  • create a support system of like-minded students with similar academic and career interests.

  • foster a welcoming and inclusive environment in which students feel that their peers and educators care about their success and wellbeing.

  • act as a launching point for personal and professional aspirations beyond our math department.

  • create connections in an alumni network.

  • expose students to fruitful opportunities in the math department and beyond.
