Emerson students are also allowed to participate in shopping events, located in Piano Row, to peruse and take these free non-perishable items. This traditions helps the environment by recycling 20% of waste and from the trash stream and redirects its use to be reused, recycled, or donated.

We choose information accessibility

News and the truth are under constant attack in our current moment, just when they are needed the most. The Beacon’s quality, fact-based accounting of historic events has never mattered more, and our editorial independence is of paramount importance. We believe journalism is a public good that should be available to all regardless of one’s ability to pay for it. But we can not continue to do this without you. Every little bit, whether big or small, helps fund our vital work — now and in the future.
