"Lumens" light display
An Emerson student is causing smiles as students and visitors stare in amazement at his LED light display—all part of his honors thesis project—in the main foyer of the Little Building.
Displaying an inner sense of direction and responsibility that shows in their intellectual engagement when they first step foot on campus, Honors students are driven, creative individuals who bond as a close-knit community of learners.
