1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Too expensive, barely any options.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not enough options, terrible options, overpriced.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Hard to go anywhere if you are not over 21

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are not huge at all on campus, but the gym is really nice and you can get a personal trainer for free as a student.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am not sure being I have never attempted to live off-campus before.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I say it's okay because there are many options around the city and they are great, but costly. Nothing is ever open late, except the few pizza and sushi places which make it worth while some nights.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness is never a problem and the rules that are in place are only helpful for our safety. Having friends stay over is easy, and partying really depends on the RA you have.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Honestly they could've given people more money but I am not entirely sure other people's situations only my own, and I know that I could've used more but thankful for what they gave.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It isn't ever a problem to find a party if you have friends and connections. You can party on campus if you're smart and the location of the school makes it easy to travel to other places in the city/state for parties.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food could be better but it isn't bad. It gets better every semester because they are seemingly working harder to make it better.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: More professional Greek life than party people

Overall Experience: Emerson is truly an amazing school--the professors and faculty are simply the best (so kind and helpful!) I've learned so much and have formed amazing relationships and connections. Very happy with my time here and would recommend it to anyone.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Rent can be very expensive but better if you split between multiple people. Also you will likely get an apartment that is expensive but not very nice. However, it will be conveniently right on the T and likely around lots of nightlife.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: A ton of options and variety. From gourmet restaurants to food trucks. Boston is definitely a food town!

3 College Senior

Administration: They can be strict with dorm parties/alcohol. Also they've gotten more strict with using the Emerson ID's to enter an Emerson building or dorm--this is for safety reasons, though, so it can be a positive. Nothing too crazy, though over all.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The financial aid people are very nice and helpful, however available financial aid at Emerson as a whole is not the best! And the cost is very expensive. However, if you put in the effort to contact and meet with the fin aid people then you will get the help you need.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Not much for on-campus partying but apartments off campus and the bar scene is great.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Dining hall is rather small, the food isn't amazing but it's not the worst out there. Plus, there's a ton of amazing food places within walking distance to Emerson so it makes up for it!

4 College Junior

Administration: Very strict in many aspects.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It's ok. Should have more funds for scholarships.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Terrible food sometimes at the DH. No enough board bucks for cafes.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The best thing about Emerson College is that we live in Downtown Boston! Most of the dorms are very good, like hotels. We have a lot of suites.

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.
