A day in the life

Every day at Emerson is unique, but here is a preview of what you can expect on campus

  • 8.30am Roll out of bed and head to the Little Building Dining Hall where you can enjoy a bagel, eggs, fruit, and more on your way to class.
  • 9.30am Grab your notebook and pen (or your laptop) and don’t be late for class.
  • 11.30am What’s one great thing about college? Long lunch breaks. Enjoy a leisurely lunch with friends, catch up on homework, or workout at the gym.
  • 1.00pm Back to class, but not always in the classroom. Some classes take field trips around Boston to local businesses and museums.
  • 3.00pm Your summer, your way. Sign up for the activities you want to do. Choose from sports, shopping, museums, college visits, and more.
  • 6.00pm Dinner time. Enjoy the unlimited portions at the Little Building Dining Hall. We really like the dessert bar.
  • 8.00pm Movies. Comedy shows. Concerts. Major league sports. You will never forget the memories you make with your friends in Boston.
  • 11.00pm Enjoy a pizza, watch a movie, or play ping pong in the lounge. After a full day, it’s nice to relax with friends.
