School: Northeastern University
Major: Civil Engineering
First Rhodes Scholarship Winner
Co-op has been really useful, you learn so many skills you’d never think to learn or might not be exposed to in classroom. I feel like when I graduate, I’ll be getting two degrees—a civil engineering degree, and a work-experience degree.
Logan Jackson, CEE’16, is the first Northeastern University student to win the Rhodes Scholarship, which is one of the most prestigious awards an undergraduate in the country can receive. Jackson has served in several roles with Northeastern’s chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, including president. She is also a violinist in the Northeastern Symphony Orchestra, and helps lead community services in her home state of Kentucky. During her time at Northeastern, she’s also received the Robert J. Shillman Award for Engineering Excellence and was named to the Huntington 100, an annual recognition bestowed on a group of select students for their accomplishments and impact on campus, in the community, and across the globe.
