I think that Emerson, overall, really prepared mePerfomance Arts
I think that Emerson, overall, really prepared me as a theatre artist. In terms of the design department, I feel like I was given opportunities and a well-rounded insight into what it means to be a designer and a craftsperson.

Academically, I feel Emerson has a really wonderful position in combining liberal arts with major classes. There were several concepts learned in liberal arts that crossed over to inform designs and research for show.

I wish I had gone to the scene shop more for general building work. But I did work outside in the Boston theatre scene and learned a TON. Get involved. Learning is beyond the classroom, and Emerson encourages that.

Don't get stuck in one thing. I did a LOT of theatre, but I took time to work on campus, participate in other clubs, run a charity week, and try out different jobs like marketing and TV production. Don't be afraid to try stuff and ask questions. I repeat, ASK QUESTIONS! :)

Emerson College has given me a broad rangeQuite BrightEnglish
Emerson College has given me a broad range of opportunities that I feel I wouldn't have had at another college or university. The extracurriculars here really supplement your education and I would encourage anyone who comes here to get involved...every organization on campus is helpful and willing to teach new students. Also a huge benefit: Being a small school, the teachers here actually know your name and care about your work. I love it!

I wasn't sure about Emerson College when IQuite BrightVideo/Media
I wasn't sure about Emerson College when I first applied to it. I actually just applied as a back-up option. But I am certain that attending Emerson College was the best decision of my life. Be careful before choosing to attend, though, as the educational departments are very specific. But if you have a love for liberal arts, performing arts, visual arts, writing, or communication, you are sure to find a place at Emerson. Not only does the college offer career-specific majors within each of those departments, but there is an endless amount of extracurricular activities to get involved in. All of the students are extremely ambitious and involved, and all of the faculty/staff have your best interests in mind.
