"What's something you would tell someone thinking about going to Emerson?"

-"It's a very liberal environment so if that's not for you then Emerson may not be the right choice" (Keith Goodwin, Emerson graduate)


Emerson is one of the biggest Quidditch schools in the country with 14 intramural teams

Emerson also has an international team that has won 4 world cups

Personal opinion: I probably will not attend Emerson simply because I have other options that make more sense in terms of money and housing. However Throughout this project I have found that Emerson is a great school for oratory and production so if you are interested in either of those feilds then Emerson might be the school for you.
