The best thing about Emerson is the student body. We're all very goal-oriented and very mindful of our future prospects. No one is lazy and every one has a plan. It's both refreshing and intimidating. You're able to make connections the second you arrive on campus.
The worst thing at Emerson has to be the actual college staff. Some of the college staff are amazing... But a lot of times, students are treated poorly when all the school really cares about is making more and more money. Emerson is really striving to grow, but the unfortunate part is that as a downtown, urban campus... We don't have the space for the number of students that the college is accepting.
Yes, As frustrated as I have gotten at Emerson, I've met people I'll be friends with for the rest of my life. They're the "people" I always fantasized about meeting while in college. They really are the bread and butter of the college. Everyone is interesting, and everyone WANTS to be here. We're all here to learn and grow.

Another awesome thing is The location. You can't get more urban, or closer to the city. Downtown Boston is never boring.
Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? Challenge yourself both academically and through extra-curriculars. Emerson wants people who are involved.
I wish I knew That Emerson is not very mindful of the well-being of their students. That's fine... But it would have been helpful to know beforehand.
