My family and I managed to arrive at Emerson with time to spare, ...

Only a Few Days Left of College Prep, But We’re Still Having Fun!

Hello! Everything is going great! I have made good friends, and we are all very close and share a lot. Even though we're working hard, we have lots of good times.
