Located in the heart of Boston, Emerson College is one of the nation’s premiere institutions of higher education devoted to communication and the arts. Emerson’s campus is conveniently located next to Boston Common, the nation’s oldest park. From Emerson, interns can walk to Boston’s best landmarks including Newbury Street, the Prudential Center, Faneuil Hall, and Quincy Market. The Museum of Fine Arts and Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, are just a short train ride away.
Interns live in the fully air-conditioned Piano Row Residence Hall at Emerson. Rooms are doubles in 6 person suites that share a living room and bathroom. The rooms feature study desks, drawer and closet space, and high-speed internet. Interns are housed in the same residence and participate in most evening and weekend activities with students on the Summer Discovery @ Emerson Boston pre-college program.
Interns enjoy 2 all-you-can-eat meals daily during the week, 1 on weekends, at the Emerson dining hall. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are available. Interns are responsible for their own lunch on workdays.
