This year, we are transforming the tradition of Alumni Weekend into a college-wide, fully online, multi-day event for all Emersonians. Reconnect with your Emerson family—the classmates, professors, roommates, and friends who shaped your Emerson. Experience the best of Emerson today—the innovation, creativity, and that special Emerson something that crosses generations. Celebrate the Emerson Classes of 2020 and 2021, and come together virtually to revisit some of your own treasured Emerson memories—and create new ones. 

Registration is open now. New events are being added to the schedule daily, so check back often.


In-Person Commencement Ceremonies, May 2, 2021

In addition to our virtual celebrations, including a fully produced online 2021 Commencement Ceremony on May 9, Emerson will hold two in-person Commencement Ceremonies for the Classes of 2020 and 2021 at Fenway Park on Sunday, May 2, 2021. Attendance is limited to the graduates and their guests, but these ceremonies will be live streamed and open to the wider community to attend virtually. Details to come.

Special Tribute to the Class of 2020

We're kicking off Emerson Week with an important tribute to the Emerson College Class of 2020. Last year, as the world went into lockdown, we at Emerson also mourned the loss of this amazing class's Commencement ceremony. One year later, we honor these incredible Emersonians, and their achievements as graduates of Emerson College by bringing some of our beloved Commencement traditions to life on our website, inclusive of an address from President Lee Pelton, speeches from Class of 2020 graduates, and a ceremonial reading of the graduate names.
