Young Alumni (GOLD)
GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) refers to any alumni that
have graduated from Emerson College in the past decade. The Office of Development
and Alumni Relations works collaboratively with GOLD alumni to
create meaningful programming and events for young alumni in Boston, LA, DC,
New York, and other cities across the country.
Within this vast GOLD community, a smaller, self–selected group of
alumni leaders make up what we refer to as the GOLD Council. See below for
details on what it means to be a GOLD Council member and why you should
consider joining this important cause.
