Meet Aarushi Nigam, Emerson’s New Graduate Student Representative

Emerson College would love to send a warm welcome to our new Graduate Students Representative, Aarushi! Originally from India, she is now attending Emerson to get her MFA in Film and Media Art.


“Emerson has one of the only film programs I found where I could indulge my love for documentary with my secret crush on Bollywood’s delicious cliches! I realized I wouldn’t need to be put in a bracket of ‘documentary’ or ‘narrative fiction’ filmmaker and could pretty much straddle both worlds. In that respect, the program looked like it was tailor-made for me.”

She is thrilled to take on this new position and will ensure that all graduate students will have a way to express themselves in all regards of their college life and experiences. Welcome to the team, Aarushi!
