What is your favorite thing about Emmanuel College?
The culture of the school. From the moment you arrive to the day you leave, you'll understand why people call Emmanuel their home.
What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?
My favorite thing to do in Boston is to explore different areas of the city. There is so much culture, diversity and history here in Boston that you'll be disappointed if you don't go explore and see what amazing shows, games, etc. this city has to offer.
What is the one piece of advice you would give prospective students about the college process?
Go visit the schools you are interested in and eat the food from the school’s dining hall. You want to envision yourself at the school and there is no better way to do that other than visiting. But you have to eat the food. You’re going to eat the school food everyday, so why not know if it's good or not!
What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?
The most exciting aspect of working in Admissions is being able to help a student through the college process and see it come to fruition when he or she arrives here on moving day.
