Emerson's 50th Anniversary

Celebrating fifty years of community

Our special day is coming soon!

Fifty years ago this September 20th, Francis Edmunds founded Emerson College. Five years later it moved to its current home on Pixton Hill in Forest Row.

We will be celebrating our fiftieth year throughout the coming academic year and will announce more events in the near future.

To begin with, we invite all Emerson friends, students, alumni and current and former staff and faculty to our opening events.
