Student Life at Emmanuel College

At the core of an Emmanuel education is a commitment to the growth of the whole student: Mind, body and spirit. That's why you'll find a robust campus life and student-centered services focusing on you.

The Emmanuel campus is truly home for our students, with a big green yard, residence halls and a variety of dining options—all in the middle of Boston’s Fenway neighborhood.

Some events at the College date back to the very first graduating class, while others will soon be added to the great list of Emmanuel traditions.

Starting at Orientation, students get the support and resources they need to navigate the first year of life at Emmanuel academically and socially.

Mission + Ministry encompasses many aspects of the Emmanuel College experience, including the programming through the Center for Mission Engagement, community service, Liturgical celebration, spiritual retreats and education.

The Office of Student Affairs provides leadership for all areas of student life, including Student Activities, Residence Life, Athletics, Mission + Ministry and a variety of student services.

The College offers services to promote and provide resources for student wellness through Health Services and the Counseling Center.

Students have access to more than 90 clubs, organizations and activities—and new opportunities arise every year to get involved on campus.

Through multicultural activities, events and educational programming, students explore issues of diversity and create strong connections within the community.

Sports are for everyone at Emmanuel, where students can participate in club sports at the College and in intramurals through the Colleges of the Fenway.

Students become leaders at Emmanuel in many ways—through clubs and organizations, student government, volunteerism—and the College cultivates these skills through a variety of programming.

Integral to the Emmanuel mission is a commitment to service, and more than 80% of students participate in volunteerism while at the College through a variety of programs.

Emmanuel offers 16 DIII athletics teams for both men and women, with state-of-the-art facilities and an exceptional student-athlete experience.
