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

Org Fair and Another Org Fair

Emerson’s annual Org Fair will be held Friday, Sept. 6 in the Bobbi Brown and Steven Plofker Gymnasium from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. Students can visit tables and learn about SGA-recognized organizations on campus. For organizations that have not yet been recognized by the SGA but still wish to attract interested students, Another Org Fair will be held from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Bill Bordy Theater. 

Jazz Brunch

To finish out the Week of Welcome, Emerson’s Community Ambassadors will host a jazz brunch on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the dining center. A live jazz band will perform while students dine and rewind after the first week of classes. This event is open to all Emerson students, on or off-campus. 

The O-Show

Presented by the Community Ambassadors and Musical Theatre Society, the O-Show will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Cabaret.  Performers from the Student Theatre Alliance will put on a short theatrical performance designed to welcome new students to Emerson.

Meal Swipe Donation Week

In order to support students who may be facing food insecurity, the Office of Student Success will sponsor a week of meal donations from Sept. 9 to Sept. 13. Students visiting the dining center can opt to donate one of their guest swipes. The office hopes to collect 500 meals by the end of the drive and also seeks volunteers to help collect swipes and spread the word about the program during the week. 

Fraternity and Sorority Life Info Sessions

The Office of Student Engagement and Leadership will hold five informational sessions for those interested in learning more about fraternity and sorority life at Emerson. The first session will be on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 12:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room, with four others slated for the following week. Attending one of these sessions is mandatory for any student planning to join a fraternity or sorority this semester.
