I've had a good time so far.Quite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I've had a good time so far. The College seems to offer a good amount an Interactive Media department, and also offers a promising looking class for starting a business.

The alumni whom I've heard of seem successful and on the same track I'd like to find myself on. It's definitely legit when it comes to film and media majors. I've heard mixed reviews about the writing department however between WLP and Journalism. I'd double check that before going.

The social scene is decent. There's definitely a lot going on if you just look. My only problem is that I don't like a lot of the people since I tend to find alot of them shallow/bitchy/spoiled rich kids. However there's also a lot of people here who are either normal or weird and kind of awesome. Even though a lot are transferring I've found a descent amount who are cool. To be real I enjoy being ambitious and keeping myself busy so socializing is not even a top priority.

No matter what the social scene is though, living in a city is awesome, especially Boston. There's no sense of a campus at all which makes you just a citizen of a city which is a big social scene in itself. If you just get out and meet people in Boston as well as participate in activities (I found a great rock climbing gym) go to events, etc, you'll have an awesome time no matter what. If you have a great College social life that's even better.

The one part that pisses me off is the lack of intramurals, but Boston takes care of that for the most part. Quidditch kicks ass though.Unless the academics suck I don't see a reason to transfer. It is a really good place, don't judge it based off of social reviews because in the end the point of College is to give you steps toward a better career, and I've definitely found that here.

Emerson College is a warm and accepting environmentQuite BrightJournalism
Emerson College is a warm and accepting environment no matter who you are or what background you might come from. One of the greatest thing about this school is the commitment the student body has to their work. Because Emerson is such a specialized school, the entire student body is incredibly into their majors. At Emerson, it is almost about what you do outside the classroom rather than inside the classroom. There are so many groups and extra curricular activities constantly going on that it would be a shame not to get involved in any of them. And because everyone is so passionate about what they do, the extra circulars are not a simple get together of students, it is consider very serious work. I think one of the bad things about the school, is the will to get out and work. Because there are so many opportunities given to the students at this school, many wish to get involved in their work so quickly that some student leave to start there professional careers. It seems like a downfall, but really it one of the greatest things about the school is that students feel prepared and are prepared for real life opportunities.
