Pub Club’s Fall 2016 Book Launch

What is Pub Club exactly? Pub Club is short for Undergraduate Students for Publishing, which is one of several publishing organizations operating on Emerson’s campus. The organization provides students who hope to work in the publishing industry the chance to gain some valuable experience while at Emerson. One of the ways Pub Club does this…

Is Music Therapeutic?

Are you happy? If you are, find a song that will reflect all of those positive emotions. For me, my song choice would be Shut Up and Dance by WALK THE MOON.

An Open Letter to Clowns

This past Wednesday night, two clowns were spotted on Emerson’s campus, loitering near the entrance to Colonial. My feelings when I first heard this were a mixture of disgust and disbelief. If Emerson’s campus isn’t safe from these clowns, where is? Then, I remembered that our campus is in downtown Boston, next to the Common…

Back to Campus: Quelling College-Related Anxiety

Last August, I was terrified to start college. On another hand, I was also excited to get to campus. Soon, I’d be taking classes in the areas of study that most interested me. My roommates and I had already become well-acquainted through the power of Facebook, which ensured I would not be entering my college…

Keeping Busy and Staying Focused During the Summer

After a year of hard work and pure stress, it’s difficult to force yourself off the couch and away from your computer screen once summer break hits.

Healthy Eating Within Reach

Hello again, my fellow dorm dwellers. It’s almost the end of the semester, and I don’t know about you, but I’m getting real tired of dining hall food right about now. For us Piano Row residents, the Max was fun for the first few weeks of freshman year. Now it’s reached the point where I’m…

Queer Monologues: Emerson’s Archive of Queer Voices

Written anonymously Before this year I would have never considered myself a performer. Before this year I would have never considered myself a part of the queer community. Now I can say that I’m both. This year I became a more active member of EAGLE, Emerson’s LGBTQ+ organization, and through a lot of their events, I…

Any energy you regained from your week away has probably been well spent now–and if you’re like me, you’re hoping you won’t run out of steam before May. Today’s post is your personal survival guide to finishing out…

The Residence Hall Brawl

Ever since I first visited Emerson my junior year of high school, I’ve been no stranger to the on-going conversations about the residence halls. I’ve heard students around campus talk about the suites in Piano Row, the social aspect of Little Building, the distance between Paramount and the rest of campus and the ovens in…
