Emerson College is an academic institution—but it’s not academics that keep us in meeting rooms and rehearsals until 11 o ‘clock every night. This school is characterized by its thriving array of student-run organizations.
In the Beacon’s opinion section, we are accustomed to respectfully editing the words of students who disagree with our private views and that of the Beacon’s editorial board. The diverse opinions we publish are what make that page an arena for students and faculty to exchange ideas.

This year, it seems that the pundits are talking about issues that hit a little too closely to home; they’re finally talking about us, as young voters.
As the finish line approaches, we must remember that the race to better our world continues beyond this election.
For as poetic as we wax about our surroundings, each barely-dressed clubgoer who trips out of Estate in the early hours of Friday mornings calls into question whether the emperor is really wearing clothes.
You can’t be accepted until you’ve been rejected. It’s that simple. Sure, there are some rare cases where the first piece out is a winner, but I guarantee you, rejections will follow.
