    Emerson Pride is an infection at Emerson College, even more so than the infectious love for Boston (the best city in the world). Emerson is a laid back school that is largely in the hands of the students. There is a warm bubble of creativity, acceptance, and goofiness among the student body. However, living off campus and not participating in extra-curriculars can leave you feeling isolated with the super-involved, ambitious students.

    It's a really fun place to be! Orientation week every year is basically a huge dance party. The overwhelming amount of students in theater and film make the school a lot of fun, and means that usually something is always going on.

    Emerson is definitely not for everyone, but it is for me. There is absolutely NO campus life here. The small campus is smack in the middle of the city on the Boson common. Some people (like me) love that, and some people hate it. You have to be incredibly independent because of the lack of campus. At Emerson you have a real life experience rather than a typical college experience. Students wake up, go to classes, then go back to their apartments around the city and do their own thing. The location is unbeatable. You are literally in the middle of an exciting metropolitan hub. It's also nice to be so close to tons of other colleges. No matter where you go to school in Boston, you will meet diverse students from every college in the area.
