It's true what they say, you need toAverageUndecided
It's true what they say, you need to know what you want to do in an "liberal" school if you wish to enjoy Emerson to the fullest. You need to get out there and find what it is you are looking for. By simply sitting in your dorm and watching re-runs of shows won't help much. There is way to much to do at Emerson. Equipments and such are all provided only if you are there to find them. In the end, this is a great school I must say. I've doubt it before, but it was all just me who didn't want to get out there and enjoy. If you love art, love to create, love to be part of shows/projects/crazy interactions. I'd say give it a shot, it's a great school after.

I am a freshman at Emerson, and decidedQuite BrightPerfomance Arts
I am a freshman at Emerson, and decided that I had to transfer within the first 2 months. I am a stage management major here, and I knew immediately that it wasn't something I wanted to do professionally.

Emerson is a great school for someone who knows exactly what they want to do and is ready to get involved and fight to be the best. It's highly competitive, especially in performing arts, and for me I did not feel comfortable or competent enough to get involved.

Emerson, however, is filled with wonderful people of all types and I made fabulous friends here within the first night. People are so approachable and everyone is so unique and different that it's hard not to be accepted by them. There is a scarcity of straight males however, if that is important to you.

Boston is a great city, and there are always things to do if you want to find them, but as every college you need to want to find the fun.Ultimately, if you are passionate about what you want to do, Emerson is the place to be to get a head start in that career. Remember, though, that if you do change your mind Emerson does not offer many other majors. That is what happened to me.

Emerson is not the right school for everyone.BrightCommunications
Emerson is not the right school for everyone.
I found it was not worth what it cost. I found many of my professors were professionals in their industry (actors, editors etc) that did not know how to "teach". Many of the 100 levels courses are taught by grad school students that don't even have masters. Emerson is a hipster school, a lot of people are very arrogant and full of themselves. I did meet some good people there I had to look for them. Overall it is a terrible school don't waste your money.
