Many students and organizations host events at Emerson and broadcast them on EmConnect’s event page and fliers on bulletin boards around campus. The Beacon’s Living Arts section went through the events for the next week and picked out a few that seemed interesting.

Chinese Lantern Festival

Resident Assistant Xinyu Xu will serve sweet dumplings and yuanxiao, a Chinese glutinous rice ball dessert, on the ninth floor of the Colonial residence hall from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday to celebrate the end of the Chinese Spring Festival.

Interview Workshop

The Career Development Center and Resident Assistant Bea Haens will host an interview workshop on Tuesday from 3 to 4 p.m. on the third floor of the Colonial residence hall. Attendees will learn communication skills to use during job interviews.

Measure for Measure

Emerson Stage will present the Shakespearean classic Measure for Measure. Directed by Maureen Shea, the shows opens on Thursday and runs through Feb. 24 at the Semel Theatre. Anyone planning to attend can buy tickets on the Theaters of Emerson College website.

Twitch Streaming Workshop

Emerson College Esports will host a Twitch streaming workshop. Twitch is an online gaming streaming service. Attendees will learn how to gain a following and manage their own channel by listening to experienced streamers. Speakers are popular Twitch streamers Stephanie Orme, Miss Moth, and Sweet Anita. The session will be held in room 417 of the Walker building on Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

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.
