What is your favorite thing about Emmanuel College?

The location of Emmanuel's campus cannot be beat. I love the fact that even in the middle of the city, the Emmanuel campus has it's own green space. I also value the importance of a Liberal Arts education. The skills you obtain from an Emmanuel degree will truly be able to guide you through a lifetime of success!

What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?

I absolutely love attending sporting events in the city! Whether it be the Sox, Celtics, or Bruins, there is never a shortage of exciting games to attend. I also enjoy treating myself to dinner in the North End and ice skating on the Frog Pond in the Boston Common every winter! 

What is the one piece of advice you would give prospective students about the college process?

Trust your gut! I think there is so much to be said about the feeling you get when you set foot on a college campus. If you visit an institution for a day and you get an incredible feeling about the people you are meeting, that is a pretty good indicator of how you will feel for the next four years. Choose an institution that not only has the major you want, but also gives you the feeling of home.

What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?

One of my favorite things about working in Admissions is being able to meet new students and help them realize that they have found their perfect fit in an institution. I also really enjoy meeting students on the road and then seeing them back on campus for events like Open House and Accepted Student days!
