Welcome to the Emerson College family!  

Parent Reflections

We are here to help you help your student!

Hello and welcome to the Emerson Parent and Family Programs webpage. Our office acts as a primary resource to aid your student in the transition to college life. Although your student has begun their adult life, the relationship between family doesn’t need to end as they navigate this exciting new life stage.

We hope you will bookmark this page as a reference for links, blog posts, and other resources for parenting during the college years. In addition, please feel free to contact our office at any time at 617-824-8640 or maureen_hurley [at] emerson.edu (maureen_hurley[at]emerson[dot]edu) or join one of our Parent and Family Facebook groups. For parents and families of new students who have not yet started, join us here. For continuing parents and families, join us here
