Emerson has many students and organizations that host events. This is exhibited through EmConnect’s event page and flyers on bulletin boards. The Beacon Living Arts section went through the events for the next week and picked out a few that seemed interesting.
Federal Loan Exit
Students with federal student loans graduating in December or studying abroad in the Spring are required by the Department of Education to complete the Federal Loan Exit Counseling requirement. Students can either attend the drop-in session from 2:30-3:30 p.m in Walker 634 on Monday with two accredited financial counselors or they can complete the requirement online. Students who wish to attend must bring with them a driver’s license, their FSA ID and password, and the names and contact information of three references.
The Phi Alpha Tau Fraternity is giving the Dr. David Brudnoy Memorial award to Mr. Joe Bergantino on Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the Urban Arts Gallery. Bergantino, an award-winning investigative journalist, is the co-founder and director of the New England Center for Investigative Reporting. There is no entry fee, but there is a suggested donation of $5. All of the proceeds would benefit the Brudnoy fund for AIDS research. Formal attire is optional, and there will be refreshments.
On Thursday, Piano Row’s first floor Campus Center will celebrate winter with a hot chocolate bar, music, arts and crafts, conversation spaces, and more. Students will get the chance to meet Piano Row’s Hall Council leaders
while if they choose to take a break from finals. The hallways and rooms 114, 117, and 118 will be reserved for the occasion from 3-6 p.m.
