Academic Advising Meetings
Every student is assigned an academic advisor who will work with you until you declare your major. During your first semester, you will have two individual meetings with your advisor in addition to two group meetings.
Your advisor's door is always open to meet more frequently, and an appointment sheet is posted outside your advisor's office. No question is too small to discuss with your academic advisor. If we cannot give you an immediate answer, we will find the person or office to assist you. Learn more»
Check Out the Majors Exploration Program (MEP)
Excited about college, but not yet certain about your major? Offered to you through the Office of Academic Advising, the MEP gives you an opportunity to work closely with your Academic Advisor and to complete online career and personal assessment tools that will assist you in determining a major that is appropriate and satisfying. Indicate your interest at your first academic advising session in the month of September or e-mail your Academic Advisor.
We want you to complete your Emmanuel education in eight semesters, which is four years for most students. To ensure that this happens, you and your advisor will begin to construct a four-year plan during your second semester at the College.
This plan allows you to decide what courses you will take each semester, and this plan is invaluable as you continue. It can be altered and modified as you continue your academic career, but it gives you a firm framework from which to choose your courses each semester.
The first-year seminar program comprises one-semester topical seminars unified under the theme "Knowledge, Values, and Social Change." These seminars are designed to introduce first-year students to the ways in which the liberal arts construct knowledge; to enhance their abilities to read closely, analyze information, instruct students in the expectations and values of the academic community; and to provide first-year students with an opportunity to work closely with a member of the faculty.
