More than 400 families – or 1,500 individuals — were welcomed to Emerson College on October 16-18 for Family Weekend 2015.

From attending mini-college classes taught by 16 Emerson faculty members to taking a tour of WERS-FM or checking out student organizations and services, Emerson families truly experienced Emerson.

During the weekend, Emerson Stage presented its production of The Spitfire Grill to 800 family members and students attending two productions at the Paramount Mainstage.

The weekend concluded with 500 family members attending the President's Breakfast, which was held at the Park Plaza Hotel ballroom. Addressing the gathering were students Sheba Wood ’17, Capri DeBiccari ’16, and Raina Deerwater ’16, Associate Professor Tulasi Srinivas, Parent Leadership Council Co-Chairs Bret and Cindy Clemons, and President Lee Pelton.
