The Berkeley Beacon

Friday, March 27, 2015

The Berkeley Beacon is Emerson College's independent, student-run newspaper. Founded in 1947, the weekly publishes in print on Thursdays each fall and spring semester and online daily. The paper is a chronicle of life at Emerson — covering student government politics, campus performances, and school-wide trends.

In recent years, the paper's reporting has revealed racial biases in the college's tenure practices, performance space struggles for student groups, and food code violations in the campus dining facilities.

In 2011, the paper took strides in increasing its online presence by launching the first college newspaper website with a responsive design, following The Boston Globe's release of, the world's first HTML5, responsive-designed newspaper site.
