Counselor for students with a last name starting with Kj-Pi

What makes Emmanuel different from other colleges?
The Emmanuel community is made up of such truly NICE people! My dad recently came to campus for the first time for a women’s basketball game. He goes to a lot of college games in the greater Boston area, and he told me that he was really impressed with everybody he met at the game at Emmanuel and with the strong school spirit. He said I was lucky to work with such great students, and I agree!

What is one Boston activity you recommend for students?
The Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain is one of my favorite places to go in Boston, and it is only half an hour from campus via the T. Whether you’re interested in learning about the different plant and tree species or just want to enjoy an amazingly beautiful park, it’s definitely worth a visit. Springtime when the apple trees and lilacs are in bloom is probably my favorite season there.

What tips do you have for students when it comes to financial aid and/or payment options?
I encourage all my students to be well-informed and involved. Read every e-mail and open every envelope you receive from the OSFS so you won’t get caught off guard by a deadline or miss out on a scholarship opportunity. Make sure you understand any documents you sign, such as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a promissory note for a loan. And, if you don’t know where to start or are confused by something you read, get in touch—that’s what we’re here for!

What do you like most about working in the OSFS?
I enjoy being able to get to know so many different students. It’s nice to be able to build our relationship over their years at Emmanuel.
