Emmanuel Welcomes Largest Undergraduate Enrollment in College’s History
September 07, 2010
As the College opens its doors for the 2010-2011 academic year, Emmanuel welcomes its largest undergraduate enrollment in the school's 91-year history, its 10th year as a coeducational college. Emmanuel's traditional undergraduate enrollment has more than tripled from 528 in 2000 to 1,750 now currently enrolled for the current academic year.
Since the College became a coeducational four-year college in the fall of 2001, applications have risen dramatically from 550 in 2000 to 6,129 for the 2010 academic year. Academic standards have also risen along with demand for admission, making Emmanuel College a school of first choice for an increasing number of high school graduates. Total enrollment with Graduate and Studies students is 2,400.
Over the past decade while enrollment has risen, Emmanuel has also added major facilities including the Jean Yawkey Center with a new dining commons and athletic center, and the Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center that was opened last year as Sister Janet celebrated her 30th year as college president.
Emmanuel College has been the fastest-growing college in New England for more than a decade.
