Undergraduate Student & Parent Orientation

Congratulations on your student's acceptance to Emerson College! We are excited to introduce you to Emerson’s unique community, innovative campus, and the city of Boston. We encourage you to Explore, Engage, and Embrace Emerson.

Spring Family Day

Spring Family Day is a mini Family Weekend, specifically designed for those with new students who begin at Emerson in the Spring semester, but is open to all. We'll have some on and off-campus offerings, a chance to sample dining hall food, and explore the city with your student. A previous participant called it, “a great excuse to visit my student“! Yes, yes it is.
