Ok after reading these past reviews i feelQuite BrightVideo/Media
Ok after reading these past reviews i feel obligated to straighten everything out because Emerson is hardly getting any of the credit it deserves. Unfortunately, the only people that go to this site are angry students that want to bash their schools, so as a result lots of colleges (like Emerson) are getting misleading reviews. There are LOTS of normal people at Emerson..only very few are the blue haired weirdos that i'm reading about. Take a tour if you don't believe me. The kids here are very normal, average college students. The academics are also very good and get more prestigious each year. The teachers are widely experienced and are working professionals in their respective fields; the most famous of which is Kevin Bright, executive producer of Friends. Another example is my Environment and Humankind teacher, who is paid by National Geographic to study gorillas in Uganda. What I'm trying to tell you is that in reality very few students are not happy here, and you shouldn't handicap yourself by not visiting and making your own decisions.

I can't speak for the other departments, butQuite BrightPerfomance Arts
I can't speak for the other departments, but as an Acting BFA, I have had an amazing experience at Emerson. The classes are mind opening and there is a lot of individual attention. The faculty do everything they can to help you grow and are always willing to meet outside of class to discuss or for extra help on your work. The students have a great attitude and there is not much pretension among the actors (at least not as much as among the film students). You'll meet very creative, unique people here and grow in ways you'd never imagined. There are tons of student productions and improv teams. With that said, the administrations is, admittedly, abominable. There are issues with registration every year and the school is run like a money-making machine - little to no financial aid for most people and summer classes are offered to the general public for half the price that we pay. So there is some definite corruption in this system. Nevertheless, I have found that the faculty and extracurricular experiences at Emerson by far outweigh the administration problems. It's a trade-off, but it's worth it. I

I've enjoyed my time at Emerson! There are a small percent of students who are self-centered and arrogant, but I've found most people to be nice and helpful and generally interested in working together.
