Meet Scout.

Northeastern's student-led design organization.

Who are we?

As part of Northeastern's entrepreneurial ecosystem, our aim is to be the best place on campus for students to learn about design. We are a community of more than one hundred students who work together to kick butt on a variety of teams.

Eight wicked creative teams

Playground members work in teams to propose, plan, and execute a semester-long project aligned with a theme that allows for experimentation in design and problem-solving.

Three students work on selecting colors for a Scout project.


Each semester, our five teams each work on real-world client projects from initial branding exercises to final code reviews.

Featured Case Study
