Andrea visits and reads applications from Western Massachusetts, upstate New York, including the Capital-Saratoga region (Albany, Fulton and Saratoga Counties) and the Hudson Valley (Dutchess, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester Counties) and central and southern New Jersey.
Favorite thing about Emmanuel: I love Emmanuel's location. Students at Emmanuel have the unique experience of being able to build a close-knit community while also having access to all of Boston. It truly is the best of both worlds.
Favorite thing to do in Boston: One of my favorite weekends in Boston is Head of the Charles weekend! I love going down to the Charles with a cup of hot apple cider and experiencing the excitement and energy of this quintessential fall event. I also love catching a Red Sox game during the summer and window shopping on Newbury Street.
One piece of advice for prospective students: Find a school that is the right fit for you. Visit a lot of different types of campuses to really get a feel for what you are drawn to. Also, use your college essay to write about what you are passionate about, not what you think colleges want to read about.
Most exciting aspect of working in Admissions: One of my favorite things about working in admissions is being able to meet new people every single day. I am constantly inspired and surprised by the people I meet.
