Favorite thing about Emmanuel: I love our campus and the fact that we have our own space while still being so close to Fenway and the heart of Boston.

Favorite thing to do in Boston: There are so many amazing things to do in the city, but my favorite is heading next door to Cambridge to watch a theatre production at the Central Square Theatre.

One piece of advice for prospective students: Build relationships! Whether in your school or in the workplace, build relationships with those around you for mentorship opportunities. The people that you meet may even be able to write you an amazing recommendation for your college applications!

Most exciting aspect of working in Admissions: I love seeing students that I meet at a college fair or an admissions event on campus for Orientation or Move-In Day. In that moment it feels like the cycle is complete!
