This has been yet another exciting week here at Emerson. With our second week coming to a close, we’ve had quite a lot of fun memories from these past few days.
On Monday, students returned back to classes and their internships. Amid the studying and work, students found time to take a trip to Georgetown Cupcakes. While this store is more known in the DC area, students were given the exciting opportunity to enjoy artisan cupcakes with their friends. Other students took the evening time to play basketball. Many of our students have been eager to get out onto the courts, so it was definitely a treat to find time in the week to allow them to enjoy a fun pick up game as a group.
On Tuesday, students were treated with a Boston classic: A Red Sox baseball game. Situated at historic Fenway Park, students enjoyed hot dogs and a great view of the Boston Red Sox taking on the Texas Rangers. Many of our students were out of their seats cheering and yelling at the players, clearly it was not difficult to ingratiate them into the culture of Fenway.
On Wednesday, students participated in an informative presentation given by our Associate Director on resumé building and Linkedin. Many of the questions brought up by the students showed a keen interest in the topic at hand and lead to a lot of discussions afterwards with counselors on their own experiences in the working world. Students ended the night by letting their voices be heard through Karaoke. Students brushed off some classic Disney songs like “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid and “Breaking Free” from High School Musical. Others crooned along to jukebox classics like “Sweet Caroline”, musical numbers from Dear Evan Hansen and Heathers: The Musical, and even some old folk songs like “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay”. It was so exciting to see our students come alive behind the mic and show off their talents. Even as we walked the halls after Karaoke, we could still hear students singing along with each other in their rooms.
Tonight, our two-week students will join their counselors on one last trip before they fly out on Friday. We decided to send them off in style by having them experience a Boston classic, The Haunted Ghost Tours. While our 2-week students enjoy their spooky trip, our 4-week and DI students will be given the chance to experience, an iconic location in Boston. Considered one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston, The North End has been continuously inhabited since the 1630s. Here, students will enjoy a large variety of shopping opportunities and a plethora of historical landmarks to snap pictures next to. The North End is also home to Mike’s Pastry, a classic Italian bakery known for their cannolis, gelati, and biscotti. Students are in for a real treat.
