What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson College is firstly a home for creative students. Your fellow students are all there to learn, meet other art students and to live in Boston. Overall Emerson College has taught me a lot about the art of filmmaking. But what I got most out of my experience so far is the connections I've made with other students and teachers, and living in one of the greatest city in the US.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Impressive from the very start. I took a tour in March as an admitted student. The first stop was a beautiful well run visitor center. The groups were split up an each given 2 current students to guide us. The campus is clean and bustling with activities. The dining commons were nicely equipped and smelled delicious. The security at the entrance to all the buildings was a comfort, therefore limiting any public access. All in all great experience

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson is a great atmosphere with a lot of faculty who are always eager to help you improve. Boston is a large artistic community and together it and Emerson thrive. My main gripe comes down to the price of education at Emerson. I can it afford it through loans. The school should stop spending so much money on new building purchases and start putting more money toward its students since there are many, like myself, too poor to attend but have always dreamed of doing so.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are some pretty good parts of the college, but many students are critical towards it. I believe I have been affected by these opinions as well. One of the most discussed problem is the lack of student ethnical diversity. The majority of students are white, and it is rare to even have one black student in a classroom. This issue has been discussed among students constantly, and it is pretty ironic as we have a black school president. The reasoning to this issue is mainly focussed on the cost of tuition and the lack of scholarships. I have not seen any changes at this moment, so I do not know if there will be any change in the near future (the tuition has been increasing about 4% every year). This is the biggest issue at my college. However, there are good parts as well. Student organizations are very active on campus. There are constantly crew calls and casting calls, both for BFAs and personal projects. You can have great experience through these projects no matter the skills you have. I had no previous experience in my field, but I now I have experience through these projects. So if you want to learn hands on, I will recommend my college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson is a school that revolves around your future career, even the club organizations are run like jobs to prepare students for their future. Everyone is constantly busy with work during the week, but they usually have some down time over the weekend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. It wasn't my first choice at first, but it ended it being the most credible and urban-centered. The classes are interesting and they really try to get similar people to room together. My roommates are my best friends. There's always free movies at the nearby theatre and Boston in general is just a great city to be a part of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson College is a great school for people who are passionate and confident in what they want to study. The limited majors offered at Emerson make the school very specialized and not necessarily the right fit for students who want to explore a variety of different academic fields. Emerson is a true city campus, meaning that students walk out of their dorm buildings right onto the busy streets of the city of Boston. This can be a little jarring for students who come from smaller towns or were expecting a more traditional college campus. Emerson overall is a very accepting place in which students who felt out-of-place in high school feel at home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Despite it's flaws, Emerson College happened to be a school I couldn't have asked for much better and furthermore. Throughout the first week I have met a lot of people I consider now to be close friends, I fell in love with the campus environment and the surrounding passion for film and the arts, and I've met some of the most intellectual and down-to-earth professors in and out of the classroom. It's only been about a semester, but I'm looking forward to the next memories to come.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is the best school ever if you are serious about pursuing the arts. They pretend like they are a liberal arts college so you have to take some real courses, but they really aren't. The best way to get the most out of this school is to join every organization you can without burning out. Emerson affords its students millions of opportunities to make films, put up shows, act, direct, write, laugh, dance, you name it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson honestly has a lot going for them. The academics are done well die to the enthusiasm and passion the professors have. They also maintain regular office hours, and genuinely want to help us learn and succeed. The institution itself is really adamant about making sure all students feel safe, and are in the process of making Emerson an all inclusive environment. Even though I am a freshman, I can tell tge institution is very caring towards its students and truelly are devoted to making sure they have the necessities and skills to be a leader by graduation.
