Emerson has many students and organizations that host events. This is exhibited through EmConnect’s event page. The Beacon Living-Arts section went through the events for the next week and picked out a few for this week that seemed interesting. 

Learn camera skills

The National Broadcasting Society will host a camera workshop next Monday from 8:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. for those interested in perfecting their camera skills. NBS produces its own television and radio programs and leads workshops to share knowledge and tips.


Start your career

This Thursday, Jessica Chance, liaison to alumni and graduate students, will share tips on how to start a career with online or in-person resources tailored to one’s academic career and professional interests. She will speak from 12:00 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Career Development Center at 216 Tremont St. on the sixth floor.


Meet Shakespeare’s son Hamnet

This Thursday, until the beginning of October, the Emerson Paramount Center Robert J. Orchard Stage is hosting the story of Hamnet, William Shakespeare’s only son, who died at age 11 without ever really knowing his famous father. This performance confronts how living in the shadow of greatness can keep one in the dark. Tickets can be purchased online on the Arts Emerson website.


Eat pizza for a good cause

The Emerson cheerleading squad is hosting a fundraiser at Blaze Pizza Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Students only need to show one of the event’s fliers at the register to support the team.


Museum of Science College Night

Friday, Resident Assistant Bea from the Colonial residence hall will host a field trip to the Museum of Science from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Interested students only need to bring an Emerson ID to enjoy a free night at the museum.
