Emerson College has been bringing innovation to communication and the arts since 1880. Starting as a school of oratory, Emerson has grown from a one-program school to a fascinating, diverse, and innovative institution serving over 3,600 and 830 graduate students from all 50 states and 75 countries.
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.Read More
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.Read More
