  • Place on Campus: The quad - I like to lie on the grass.
  • EC Tradition: Midnight Madness.
  • Thing about Emmanuel: The people and the community feel.
  • Professor: Dr. Joel Kowit (Biology) - he makes class enjoyable and fun with his clever jokes and mannerisms.
  • Class: Neuroscience because for lab, we got to experiment on our friends using an experiment we came up with on our own.

Why you came to EC: I liked its close proximity to the city of Boston. The small campus was inviting and felt like a close-knit community. The small college combined with the large surrounding area with all its amenities made it a perfect location.

What three things would you want if you were stranded on a desert island: An iPod with unlimited battery, my dad and a Taco Bell.   

What do you want to be when you grow up? A high school biology teacher by day and a radiologist by night.
