Meghan Timbas

Meghan, Class of 2017

Meghan majored in communications and media at Emmanuel Colelge. After transferring to Emmanuel, she became involved in the Greek Club and Sigma Tau Delta, and is interning at Boston Road Runners.

Meghan Timbas '17 knew she had transferred to the right college the moment she stepped foot on the Emmanuel campus. "I walked on to the quad, and I thought ‘this is me.'"

Since that day, the New Hampshire native has made Emmanuel her home, and she has taken advantage of every opportunity that has come her way. In addition to her classwork in Communication & Media Studies, she has been involved in the Greek Club and Sigma Tau Delta (International English Honor Society), among others. With more than 100 clubs to join, Meghan says that the desire to take part and take charge are core characteristics of Emmanuel College students. "This is a school full of leaders," she reports. "When you join a club and they ask for someone to be president, 12 hands shoot up!"

Meghan believes that a willingness to "get out of your comfort zone" is another trait shared by Emmanuel students. For her, taking a chance and trying something new meant spending the fall 2015 semester in Florence, Italy, where she backpacked around the countryside and took courses in public relations, creative writing—and wine tasting!

Back in Boston, Meghan is once again expanding her boundaries. She is currently an intern at Boston Road Runners, a small non-profit that promotes running in the city. This role lets Meghan, an avid runner, combine her academic interest in communications with her passion for fitness. Focused on marketing, Meghan "does a little bit everything, from social media to promotion to fundraising, whatever it takes."

Reflecting on her time at Emmanuel, Meghan believes that her independent streak and desire take on new challenges have enabled her fit right in. And, she feels the same way she did when she first came to campus. "I know I made the right choice in coming to Emmanuel," she says. "This is me."

Interested in Communications & Media?

From Marshall McLuhan's theory of a global village to the advent of Facebook, the "new media" has overcome physical boundaries and radically altered the way we, as a global society, interact with one another. At Emmanuel, a concentration in communication and media studies can serve students in their future roles as citizens, cultural consumers and professionals in a society increasingly shaped by language and the media.
