What is your favorite thing about Emmanuel College?
Picking just one favorite thing about Emmanuel is a challenge! From the school spirit to the faculty to the food, Emmanuel has so much to offer. If I had to choose, my favorite aspect of the college would be the location. Being right in the heart of Boston, there are endless opportunities for our faculty and students. Being able to walk to a museum for a class or to a hospital for an internship makes Emmanuel so unique. The location coupled with the size of the school is what made me to decide to attend Emmanuel several years ago!
What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?
Since I am a huge Red Sox fan, you'll often find me at Fenway Park! I also enjoy relaxing at Castle Island and going for walks throughout the city. I love Boston and all it has to offer.
What is the one piece of advice you would give prospective students about the college process?
Do what's best for you! It is easy to get caught up with where your friends are applying or where family members would love to see you go to college. It is so important that you find "your school" and the one that makes you happy!
What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?
The most exciting aspect of working in Admissions is the travel. I love meeting students and their families and talking about Emmanuel. Being in a different state each week can be a challenge, but I enjoy the driving and seeing the sights along the way!
