What is your favorite thing about Emmanuel College?
Being in the heart of Boston is a huge benefit. Emmanuel College prepares students to be successful in their careers while providing the support you expect from a residential campus. I love hearing the stories of students from all over the globe deciding to start their career in Boston after having a transformative four year experience!
What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?
As a marathoner, there is nothing better than cheering on thousands of runners on Marathon Monday. My favorite places to cheer are at Mile 17 right before Heartbreak Hill and on Boylston Street as runners make the turn to see the finish line. The energy felt throughout the city is truly amazing.
What is the one piece of advice you would give prospective students about the college process?
Don't put so much pressure on yourself that you forget about what's important, and that's finding the right institution for YOU. Every individual you encounter throughout your college search is there to assist you. Ask questions and be a sponge; soak up as much information as you can! Don't forget to take pictures while you're on a campus tour, some campuses may start to look similar and you'll want to remember who had that awesome residence hall that overlooks Boston!
What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?
I love seeing the excitement on a student's face after being accepted, it's the beginning of an incredible journey. Working with students as early as their Sophomore year, watching them graduate and then learning about what they0 accomplish after graduation is a tremendous feeling.
