The traditional school colors of red and black as well as the Husky dog mascot are displayed proudly by more than 165,000 alumni living in 50 states and 122 countries.
Northeastern adopted the nickname "Huskies" in 1927, and the first Husky appeared on campus on March 4 of that year. He came to Boston's North Station by train from Alaska and was greeted by more than 1,000 students and the University band. Classes were canceled for the afternoon, and King Husky was paraded with police escort for the four miles to campus.
