The admissions office at Emerson prides itself on the diversity of its students. But anyone who looks at the numbers quickly gathers that the school is predominantly white, and anyone who attends a class learns that the school is mostly made up of liberal students and faculty. The exceptions to these, of course, exist and are refreshing. For example, when you finally have a class with someone who shares Republican views, you’ll find it either gives you the courage to discuss your idea or helps you strengthen your argument because of the challenge. Since Emerson is nestled in the very engine of Boston—the downtown area—students are exposed to all races, religions, and political ideas—although this doesn’t mean your roommate won’t look exactly like everyone else. The College does have a sizable gay community, which is well supported and positively contributes to the diversity of the school. Emerson is also home to many international students.
Overall, many Emerson students complain about the overwhelmingly white, liberal, wealth of the campus. But, aside from the numbers, there are differences everywhere you look. No matter what you look like, where you stand politically, or the size of your bank account, you’re welcome here.
