Between Saturday, September 7 and Monday, September 9, Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 hurricane, made its way from the Bahamas to Canada. Currently, the death toll is up to 50, and thousands of people has been displaced by the devastation. Due to the lack of shelter or ability to store donated materials, many relief organizations are currently asking for monetary donations rather than for supplies.

An Add/Drop Form is located below this this announcement. Section changes (same course offered at a different day/time) do not require advisor approval.

As a reminder, students must complete a minimum of 128 credits in addition to completing all general and major requirements, and a cumulative GPA of 2.0 to graduate.

Dear Members of the Emmanuel College Community,

Once again, gun violence has convulsed our nation. Over the weekend, in a span of less than 24 hours, two young men armed with automatic weapons took the lives of 31 people and wounded many others, including small children, in incidents in El Paso, Texas, and in Dayton, Ohio. Less reported on, but also deeply shocking, were weekend shootings in Chicago that left seven dead and 46 wounded.

Today, as in the past, I encourage all of us to press our elected leaders to confront this public safety issue in a serious, bipartisan and effective manner. At the same time, we recognize that the roots of mass violence run deep and require solutions far beyond the scope of legislative or policy changes. Real, lasting remedies will only emerge from honest discussions about the state of our culture and society-and about the complex conditions that are making individuals vulnerable to ideologies of bigotry and hate.

As we come together to begin the 2019-20 academic year, may we renew our commitment to addressing these and other vital questions with openness, thoughtfulness and mutual respect. In addition, may we continue to show genuine care for one another and serve as a model for the peaceful and loving society that Emmanuel College has always sought to create.
