3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like the people I meet but I'm not sure that the tuition is worth going there as the classes seem sub par as well as the teachers.

4 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school feels pretty safe but they need to take sexual assault more seriously.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They suits are amazing and clean and the buildings feel like apartments.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They seem a bit clique-y but overall its fine and no one pays attention to them.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Alot of people participate in sports but no one is really invested in it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like the clubs but sometimes the classes feel a bit useless.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think the advising system works better here than at my old school, but still could use some developing as I don't have a strong relationship with my advisor. I like that it's a generally liberal campus because everyone is more open minded and we can talk about issues fairly.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are lots of opportunities to network through professors and other students, especially through the FB group for current and past Emerson students.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Our campus is across from the commons so we hear about some crimes that take place at night in the area.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The quidditch team is very popular, I know we have other sports teams but I've never been to a game and they aren't that important at Emerson.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I transfered to Emerson from another art school (as a marketing major in both schools) and have found that my classes are more challenging (in a good way) and the professors and advising team are all super helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have liked most of my professors and classes are small and intimate.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From what I've heard from peers in my major, they have been able to find internships and jobs. In fact, we are rated as the number 1 school for journalism in the nation!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's okay. Not the best and not the worst.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: We have pretty nice dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: People don't go to Emerson to play sports.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year was pretty exciting. The school provides you with so many opportunities to get the experience you need in whatever career field you are pursuing. Plus, at Emerson they pretty much let you discover on your own. They let you grow a lot in that way.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, professors are great. Especially in the Performing Arts department, Emerson using a lot of adjunct professors who are still working out in their field and they bring that experience back to their students.

Overall Experience: "The Emerson Mafia" is literally everywhere in the entertainment industry, and Emerson students have access to Career Services for the rest of their lives which is really important and great.

Health & Safety: Emerson does a lot during orientation to teach new students how to keep themselves well and safe, which is really great and important.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus can come with downsides, being in a confined space with your peers being one of them, but being so close to your classes and everything going on is an amazing deal.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Fraternity and Sorority Life is absolutely amazing for those involved, but it's not super important to the people who don't participate.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics aren't very popular at Emerson. It's great for sports journalism students who get exposed to that field, and we have Quidditch!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Emerson is honestly the best thing to ever happen to me and I am so blessed to be here.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
