Headed to NACAC Boston This Fall?

We are thrilled the NACAC annual conference will be held in our hometown city of Boston this September! During this time, we are happy to welcome visitors to Emmanuel’s campus, and we hope that you make us part of your visit.

At 400 The Fenway, Emmanuel College offers the best of both worlds: a tight-knit, involved community of 1,850 students, located smack in the middle of museums, Fenway Park, The Longwood Medical Center, and more. Our students choose from almost 50 areas of study offered through our liberal arts and sciences curriculum and display their Saints pride through their involvement in our long list of student activities and athletics.

We will have staff and students available to demonstrate our Boston hospitality during the week of the conference. Join us on our campus in the heart of the Fenway neighborhood for a tour, conversation, or a meal on us! If you have been to campus before, we invite you back to see how Emmanuel is expanding with a new 18-story residence hall. We will hold student-led tours Monday through Wednesday during the week of the conference at 9:00 a.m., 11: 00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. We will also host tours Thursday morning. If these times to do not work with your schedule, please let us know so we can plan another time. You can contact Nicole Mollica at to schedule your visit.  We look forward to seeing you in September.
