What is your favorite thing about Emmanuel College?

There’s a true sense of community here. It’s also a very friendly campus—people here hold the doors open for you, say hello, etc. Sounds small, but those little things contribute to the larger sense of community.

What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?

I love heading to the North End for a cannoli and then strolling around Quincy Market. Also sharing that top spot on my “favorite things” list are going to Sox, Bruins and Celtics games! We are lucky to be in a city with such great sports teams. Plus, Fenway Park is just a short walk down the road.

What is the one piece of advice you would give prospective students about the college process?

I have two pieces of advice. First, find a school you will love for the next four years. Make sure you are thinking long-term when you visit a college, because you will be there for a big chunk of time. Also, don’t procrastinate on your applications! Colleges have different deadlines and application requirements, and you want to meet all deadlines comfortably so you don’t get too stressed.

What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?

Meeting future Emmanuel students and their families. As an alumna, it’s exciting to meet students who share my love for the college.
