Guys & Girls: Lots more girls than guys.

1 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The straight guys are ABSOLUTE assholes. Whatever you do, stay as far away from the straight athletes at the school. Any guy who is remotely attractive will automatically think they're the coolest thing since sliced bread. I have had such a difficult time making non-gay guy friends, simply because they're so pretentious and pompous. If you're a girl relying on getting a boyfriend here, GIVE IT UP. The guys are douches, except for the gay ones.

Guys & Girls: Since Emerson is such an open-minded school people generaly express their gender and sexuality in their own unique way. Most of the students dress "normally" but there always those that have their own unique, out-of-the-ordinary style and are not afraid to express it. The dorms are co-ed and students have the opportunity to apply for a co-ed suite if they wish to, so there is a daily interaction between the male and female students.

Guys & Girls: It's vibrant and it's different. The guys are OK. They tend to think they're all that because there's so few of them. It feels like a 1:10 guy to girl ratio. Some guys are nice, others are annoying and pompous, but they tend to forget that girls have learned to seek out other schools for better options.

The girls also vary. There's someone out there for everyone and a lot of us are open to trying new relationships. Bi, bi-curious, pan..etc.

Fashion is fun, some people may judge but really it's all BS. No one really cares what you wear. I'm a notorious Pajamas for life person, and no one has ever complained. (Aside from my roommates who nag that I can be stunning when I try, but I choose to look like a bum.) But hey- I'm a happy bum!

A lot of students fall under the category of: Hipster- or hipster wannabe.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Emerson students will probably tell you that everyone on campus is pretty attractive, which is likely because whoever you ask looks a lot like everyone else. Emerson’s population likes to look good, although “good” is a subjective term. There are some really well-dressed kids who look good by anyone’s standards, and some interesting styles that are attractive in their own unique way. On the whole, Emerson isn’t a campus of slobs who roll out of bed and trudge to class, but this is probably because most students don’t live on campus. Don’t cringe at the thought that everyone is dressing to impress, though. Emerson students just look good naturally. Many students emphasize the sexual preference of the guys on campus, claiming that a lot of them are gay. What this really means is that there might be more homosexual students at Emerson, but, what’s for sure, is that everyone is welcome and accepted, which means students have a lot of pride in their lifestyle.

A lot of students who visit Emerson are intrigued by the appearance of the student body. Some describe the general look as “art school-esque,” and find comfort in the fact that they may seem to fit in here. But please don’t make a decision based on looks. Emerson students have more depth than that, and so should you.

Social Scene
There is no social hierarchy on campus. There are groups that can be generalized based on style of dress or major, but you'll find that those generalizations don't hold up very long. Emerson students are very social and don't keep to a small group of friends.
Hookups or Relationships?
There are a fair amount of people in relationships; a large amount of those are long distance, too. Of course, there are plenty of students who are looking for non-committal nights on the town, too.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Unlike other big universities in Boston, Emerson doesn't provide the best opportunities to meet your next potential boyfriend or girlfriend. There are plenty of students who come to Emerson already attached and committed to long-distance relationships. Due to the College's tight-knit population and its reputation as a haven for students with alternative lifestyles, many of the female students will find that many of the the guys are gay. Your best bet is to meet someone from one of the neighboring colleges by attending an off-campus party.
Dress Code
Emerson does not dress like your high school (most likely). Here, the students look like the kids who dressed weird at your high school. Yes, there are plenty of well-dressed students. Yes, there are some preppy kids. But please expect more tight pants, Clash T-shirts, studded belts, mohawks, dyed hair, and leather than you are used to.
