Emerson College - Comments and Student Experiences|
-complete lack of a social scene...because there is no real campus there are no campus wide activites/concerts etc, also to get to a party you have to jump on the T and leave boston to get to crammed, stuffy, overcrowded apartments then take an expensive cab ride home.
-Please Please believe me that there is really not much going on in Boston for the under 21 crowd.
-Maybe this place is right for you but I want to hang out with people who are really passionate about music and art, not just kids who claim to know the most 'underground band of them all' and refuse to explore any new ideas outside their little hipster boxes..so i'm leaving. *note: I know when i was reading this before i came here that i just thought the ppl writing negative reviews were probably really preppy abercrombie sheep that just didn't 'get' the emerson community. To let you know, I'm not that...I'm just a normal person who wants to hang out with people who aren't obsessed with trying to project an 'indie' persona. I have piercings and tattoos and I love punk rock but I'm not under the false impression that these things make me part of some elite subculture...these kids really need to just try and not take themselves so seriously!
The classes here are great, especially for film production majors. The professors are all incredibly skilled and know what they're talking about.
The kids here are kind of strange and eccentric, but that's what you should expect at any arts school. The kids are all really nice for the most part. Another thing- there is really no "campus" at Emerson. I really like that, but I know a lot of kids who don't. If you like the city then you should like the surrounding area. Even though there's no real college campus, you live right in the middle of Boston with so much to do!
