The Emerson Poetry Project hosted a spoken word performance by student poets; and the student a cappella group the Treble Makers left students calling for an encore.

Several other campus events are happening now through Saturday, April 18, as part of Emerald Empowerment Week, which is organized by the Kappa Gamma Chi sorority.
