Northeastern University hosted a special screening of "American Ninja Warrior" Monday evening with Josh Levin, who's competing on the NBC show. Levin was joined by plenty of friends, family — including his parents, who flew in from California for the occasion — and classmates. Watching the television broadcast with an entourage of supporters "was pretty exciting" Levin said in a telephone interview. "It was a lot of fun."

The Northeastern senior, 22, has been performing well in the obstacle course competition, and advanced to the Las Vegas finals on Aug. 29. (You can watch his latest run here.)


Levin wrote on Instagram: "Wow. Ever since I saw Ninja Warrior as a kid, it was my dream to one day compete on the show. Tonight, those dreams came true in a bigger way than I could have ever possibly imagined. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years as I pursued my passion. Next stop, Vegas!"
