The SAIL Digital Platform
Designed to help you learn from every experience, tell your unique story, and chart your path.
A lot goes into your college experience. SAIL enables you to navigate through it all. From clubs to co-op positions to courses, athletics and more. The SAIL digital platform connects you to the opportunities to help you develop specific skills and qualities – right at your fingertips.
Experience is a great teacher. SAIL helps you pull out and save the key moments of your experiential learning. Through meaningful visualizations, the platform captures the insights and ideas you want to remember, shows how you are developing key skills and dimensions, and helps you use them to shape the story you’ll share during and after your time in college.
With MyStory, SAIL makes it easy to take what you’ve learned from all your experiences and craft them into a compelling story that reveals to employers, faculty, and colleagues who you are and what you’re capable of.
Need some guidance on which courses to choose? Want insight on a particular co-op opportunity? Looking for advice from alumni working in a certain field or specific company? SAIL connects you with other members of the Northeastern community, such as students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
What students think about SAIL
“I really enjoy SAIL because students are able to track every career and academic milestone that sometimes we forget about. I enjoy attending professional development workshops and events in the greater boston area, adding them on SAIL along with my graduate courses gives me a sense of great accomplishment.”Yaritza DeJesus, CSSH ‘20
“Coming to Northeastern as a transfer student, I faced the challenge of translating my college experience into a completely new context. SAIL helped me identify and communicate a range of valuable past experiences while strengthening my future goals.”Samsudeen Sallah, CAMD ‘21
“I love SAIL because it keeps everything in one place – I can search for opportunities on campus, such as events and club meetings. I can also monitor my progress toward achieving a goal or enhancing a skill. Most importantly, SAIL keeps track of everything I attend, which is great for when I need to update my resume or prepare for an interview.”Evani Popdoncheva, DMSB ‘20
“SAIL shows you which areas you’re excelling in, and which attributes you can work on more. That is helpful in trying to decide which types of opportunities to do in the future so I can balance out my growth and not focus heavily on one dimension.”Aurhan Khan, DMSB ‘23
“SAIL allows me to journal my thoughts about significant moments I’ve had, events I’ve attended, my classes, my goals, and other aspects of my life, which I can then reflect on later and connect. It also allows me to search for events and great opportunities happening on campus or through Northeastern.”Kristin D'Angelo, COS ‘24
“I use SAIL a lot for co-op interviews. It allows me to compare and talk about different experiences using similar language. Now I can talk about the different dimensions and skills I learned from my leadership experiences, not just that they are leadership experiences.”Andres Pinedo Rovelo, CSSH ‘20
“I had the unique opportunity to use SAIL throughout my XN project. The SAIL framework helped me truly understand how my XN project was helping me develop specific skills and how those skills could be transferred into my role as a Learning & Development Consultant.”Megan Pirrello, CPS ‘20
“SAIL is really helpful in terms of experiential learning because I can look back and say this is what I gained from that experience, and not just that I had the experience.”Michael Tomase, CSSH ‘23
