Favorite...

  • Location in Boston: Fenway Park.
  • EC Tradition: Midnight Madness.
  • Professor: Dr. Melanie Leussis (Psychology) - I had her for Methods and Statistics II. She took a very difficult course and made it a lot easier for students to excel with the extra help and assigments outside of class. 
  • Class: U.S History to 1877 - I really enjoy history and learning about the past. After finishing this course, I decided to major in history! Clearly, it had an impact on me.  

Why you came to EC: I came to Emmanuel College mainly because it is a small school located in a big city. This allows me to have a closer relationship with my professors while also having all the benefits of living in a big city. I grew up as a Boston sports fan, and I love how the school is just a five minute walk from Fenway Park. I also came here to have the oppertunity to play on the Men's Lacrosse team. 

What three things would you want if you were stranded on a desert island: unlimited supply of food and water, my lacrosse stick and a husky.

What do you want to be when you grow up: A counseling psychologist.
