Emerson is teaching me a great deal about the arts that I was never able to learn in my basic college-prep high school program. As a Writing, Literature, and Publishing major, I'm learning a lot about how real world events influence the creation of films, theatre, and books.

    Emerson is the school where you'll cry when you see the bill. You'll have to keep reminding yourself that this school is getting you where you want to be and they throw in so many extras along the way you'll get caught up in the experience and forget about the $50K tuition bill. The people you meet are all supportive and the few that aren't do not get too far

    Emerson College truly does value communication and the arts, both go hand in hand so seamlessly however an education on both together is crucial. Studying at a school with such different majors gives unique perspectives on your own field too and further being in the heart of Boston (it truly is and isn't dramatizing it), truly is amazing to experience. Boston is the best place to attend college and Emerson truly has unique programs that help you focus.

    Emerson College's Film Program is a great place for determined artists to find their voice and hone their filmmaking skills. The professor's are all very attentive and try their best to help each student get the education they need in any given class. Overall the academics and vibrant Boston cityscape make it a great place for students that know where they want to go in their careers.

    Emerson is a very open-minded college in a beautiful city with a lot of opportunities to get involved. The classes are challenging the the way that's rewarding, not horror-inducing, and the dorms are actually big and cozy with a lot of storage room. It may be expensive, but everything course-wise and beyond is worth the cost.

    Emerson College is a school that has not only provided me with courses on topics and curriculum that I thoroughly enjoy, but a school that has provided me with people that I have come to love. Everyone at Emerson is so different from each other, and it provides a plethora of perspectives and experiences for you to learn from. All in all, the education, the location, and people who attend Emerson make the expenses worth it.

    Emerson College is a great school for people that are really interested in a particular communication or arts field. Great faculty and worthwhile classes and co-curriculars. Students can be competitive, but there are also more relaxed students as well.
