  • Michael Brosseau

    Michael Brosseau

    Admission Counselor

    "Born and raised in Massachusetts, Boston was always something special to me. Here at Emerson, our campus is Boston. You’ll have access to the City of Champions (nine championships, one decade), the Freedom Trail, some delicious clam chowder, and the latest Emerson Stage show at one of our many performance venues! When people ask me why they should come to Emerson and Boston, I tell them that it has a unique way of becoming your home, making it difficult to ever think about leaving."
  • Adriana Guida

    Adriana Guida

    Admission Counselor

    "I love the sheer variety of experiences Boston offers in such a relatively small space. You can enjoy nature in the Public Garden or Rose Kennedy Greenway, then visit a hole-in-the-wall, down-an-alley bakery in the North End, and take in a world-class Broadway show, all in the same day."
  • Dana Kingman

    Dana Kingman

    Admission Counselor

    Region: DC, DE, MD, MA (Boston and the Cape and Islands), NC, NY (Westchester and Rockland counties), SC, TN, VA
    "I love how Boston has a little bit of everything, on one block you may be surrounded by modern buildings and two blocks over is a street of townhouses from the 1800s. So if you are history nerd, such as myself, then you really can’t beat Boston. But personally, the most amazing thing is Boston’s ability to feel both large and small, sometimes, at the same time."

    "I love how festive Boston is; there is always an event to look forward to in every season and month. Marathon Monday in April is exciting, the Head of the Charles Regatta in October is incredible, and the fireworks and Boston Pops concert on July 4th are spectacular."
