Most students are thrilled with Emerson. From the professors to the production equipment to the classes, many students feel they’re being well-prepared for the real world. At Emerson, students have more internship opportunities, well-known industry professionals as professors, and quality classes than many larger schools. Since Emerson students come with fervor to learn their trade, they end up bolstering each other in workshops and projects. Some students gripe about the long lines and difficulty dealing with the administrative aspects at Emerson, such as the financial aid office and the registrar. These experiences can obscure the positive parts of the educational experience, but most students agree that something very exciting and positive is going on at Emerson, and there are a lot of resources to take advantage of.
Emerson students are matchless in their excitement to learn, create, and get involved in activities that will better them academically and in character. Though it’s common to boo-hoo about the unpredictable weather, the dismal parking and driving situation, and early curfews in Boston, most Emerson students love their temporary home. The chances to work with award-winning faculty are one of a kind, as are the students. Emerson isn’t perfect, but it is a fantastic place for students who are willing to learn and work hard for what they care about. Your time spent at Emerson will certainly not be easily forgotten.
Emerson is situated across from one of the T stops, so it's accessible and convenient.
New England, and Boston in particular, is known for its ever-changing weather patterns. Emerson is situated in the heart of the city, but public transit makes the school accessible, and police are vigilant about keeping students notified of any delays or cancellations due to the weather. "Bostonians" know how to handle just about any type of weather, so it's not an issue with regard to the school.
Emerson College and its staff make efforts to keep the campus safe, but still allow students to live their lives academically and socially. The police are vigilant in keeping students notified of any events that could affect student safety, including events in the community that might be slightly off campus. I am of legal age to drink and enrolled in the graduate division, so I cannot speak for the undergraduate division of the college.
Emerson is very diverse in their student body and faculty. There many groups on campus that specialize in get-togethers for students of certain ethnicities. Overall, everyone gets along great. There is really no backlash or any bouts of racism/discrimination on campus.
There are usually a lot of house parties in places like Allston and Brookline that are hosted by Emerson students. Word usually spreads quick and unless it's too crowded or a closed party (i.e. fraternity/sorority), your chances of getting turned away are pretty slim.
