At the Beacon, we report on all aspects of campus life—covering events, profiling our creative student body and its work, and breaking important news. We tell the stories at Emerson that need to be told.

To learn more about the Beacon, come to our info session on Thursday, August 28 (free pizza and lemonade!) at 12:30 pm in the Piano Row multipurpose room. Writers, photographers, filmmakers, journalists, social media mavens, and storytellers of any major are welcome. Tweet at @BeaconUpdate if you can’t find it.
