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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson is the weirdest bunch of hippies you'll ever encounter. Day one, you pull up to school and the Move In assistants are clad in rainbow tutus and afro wigs. It's very apparent at first glance that this school is not for people who desire to fly under the radar. If you go to Emerson, you must love Boston. It is one of Emerson's greatest pulls. Creativity is equally important as intelligence, and sometimes intelligence seems like a lesser requirement. Expect food poisoning. Expect passion. Expect a protest in the park every couple of weeks. Expect people with crazy, beautiful stories. And expect to be changed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson is an exceptional school for young artists to come together and help each other flourish. While it does have its flaws, there is no other place I would rather be to receive an education in the arts. The professors are understanding and upfront with you about the struggle of an artistic lifestyle. However, they are also there to offer advice and share stories about their own ability to overcome. On top of that, the networking opportunities are extraordinary. It truly feels like everyone is there to help each other succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson is a great place for people interested in pursuing a career in the arts or communications. There are some amazing professors who are always readily accessible, and class sizes are small. The overall energy here is busy, as everyone is always doing a million projects at once. Very friendly attitude towards everyone in a great area of Boston.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like Emerson College. At times it can be a little hard, for me personally, because I do not fit in well with the other students' qualities (i.e. artistic, politically active). However, despite this, the classes are good and the people are usually friendly. Not to mention we have a great location in Boston, right across from the Common. I wish I could live on campus junior and senior year, but we simply don't have the space.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson college is the most artistically, open-minded school, that I have ever encountered. It is like this beast of a creative being, with little minds carrying artistic ideas that will change the world. I have loved every moment of my time at Emerson college and will cherish the memories and lessons I have learned forever.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I certainly feel Emerson is the place for me as I head for my degree and my experience here reflects that. The professor are usually always willing to help you and classes have been engaging and creative thus far. The student body can be relatively toxic at times from my experience and whether it is for a good reason or not is not my place to say and I advise people to see for themselves since views of people vary I know. While I do not live on-campus, I usually stay in the dorms with friends quite frequently and can say the dormitories are alright I suppose. They are not lavish by any means and also are not terrible. They are bearable and reasonable, especially for the downtown area of Boston. There's a lot to do in this area of Boston: it's a great location with many places to eat and have a good time at. Boston Common is also right on the college's doorstep across the street which makes for a nice view for those who live in the dormitories that face it. Speaking of things to do, extracurricular activities at Emerson are plentiful. With my major being theatre education, there is much theatre to be found with many shows going on. Emerson is most known for its film program and the extracurricular activities also reflect that as well. I always see posts on every wall about crew calls for filming which shows just how active the community is. All in all, Emerson is a great college to go to I would say and would recommend it to close friends interested in the arts.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson College is a solid school. People like to complain regardless of where they are, but all in all I feel lucky to be a part of the Emerson community. People have intelligent conversations, there's little to no judging others, and the location is incredible. Your experience here depends on what you put into it -- there are rigorous classes available and there are also some easier classes -- if you want to challenge yourself, you can.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emerson College is not your usual college campus. Its classes are equally odd in terms of what you'd expect from "the college experience", and its people are no different. There are students here who I honestly think would not fit in at any other college in the country. This is a school of weirdos, nerds, geeks, and sociopaths. And yet I would not have it any other way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you're looking for a second home away from home, this is it! The creative energy is coveted, almost everyone knows what Harry Potter house they belong in, and calling Emerson a Liberal school would be an understatement. Small class sizes, living in Boston, access to modern film technology, and a long list of places to study abroad. Did I mention that Emerson College has a castle in the Netherlands? Definitely recommend if you're looking for a creative school that will teach you what you need to know for the real world.
