Anonymous asked: how would you describe the students in emerson? are they nice?
Although there is the stereotype that the majority of Emersonians are cigarette-smoking, slightly pretentious, bisexual hipsters, this proved to be less true than I expected. At Emerson, you will attract those who are similar to you. It’s that simple. I have met people who do fit that stereotypical description but then again, I have also met the complete opposite. Emerson is a giant hodgepodge of personalities and interests. From the highly-dedicated VMA film majors who spend weekends doing shoots, to the international crowd that basically lives at the nearby clubs and those who at first feel out of place because they don’t know who Wes Anderson, Kevin Bright or Bon Iver are, there is definitely a variety in the student population. The one thing I can say that is common of at least 97% of the Emerson students is that everyone is incredibly passionate about something. Whether it’s film, tv, marketing, theatre, etc. there is always something driving Emersonians which makes them the most dedicated group of people I have ever encountered. It’s definitely a school of doers and people with strong opinions. People will be nice, as long as you are nice.
