This Thanksgiving, students from Emerson and Marlboro colleges shared a meal and their perspectives on Marlboro’s southern Vermont campus just three weeks after the two institutions announced that they were exploring an alliance beginning next summer.

The two-night visit came at the invitation of Marlboro College, which put up 10 Emerson students in residence halls and provided meals, including a Thanksgiving lunch on November 28. Emerson students who attended said the experience was very eye-opening and insightful.

Journalism major Ronald Crivello-Kahihikolo ’22, who is from Hawaii, said the Vermont campus was a great change of pace from the bustling city of Boston, and commented on the sense of community he experienced.

“Even during Thanksgiving lunch, it wasn’t just students eating there,” Crivello-Kahihikolo said. “It was literally … people coming in from town, or staff or faculty members. Everyone was just sitting at the same table and talking to each other, and I thought that was super beautiful because I was like, ‘Wow, the community here is … super close.”
