The campus welcomes gay and lesbian students. The Office of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) Student Life works to improve the quality of life for all students.

Most students and faculty are politically and socially liberal. Both are generally outspoken about politics and politically active.
Let's just say that the phrase, "Do you know who her father/uncle/mummy/brother is?" isn't uncommon. Emerson students are loaded.
Most Common Religions
Emerson students are known for their liberal view on religion. However, Emerson does have a Center for Spiritual Life, which is home to student groups such as the Emerson Good News Fellowship, Hillel, and the Newman Club.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Despite the glaring “whiteness” shown in Emerson’s diversity statistics, minority clubs on campus such as ASIA, Amigos, and EBONI are abundant, active, and throw some of the best events.
