What is your favorite thing about Emmanuel College?

The sense of community on campus is palpable. Not only are students involved in so many service organizations, clubs, and athletic teams, but they develop relationships with their professors and with each other that last well beyond commencement.

What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?

As an avid basketball fan, I love going to the TD Garden to watch the Celtics play. And when the weather cooperates, I play pick-up basketball in the Back Bay Fens (just a five minute walk from Emmanuel) - there's nothing like swishing a three-pointer and then looking to the east at the Prudential Center and the Boston skyline!

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

Academically, socially, personally, professionally, and event spiritually, college is about taking initiative. Try to remember that you can have an incredible experience wherever you find yourself, so long as you are proactive in your studies and pursue the things that you are passionate about. Bring this attitude to the college search process! Learn as much as you can about the schools that you think might be a good fit, visit if you can, and let your excitement guide you as you write applications and decide where to begin this next chapter. 

What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?

I love the individual contact that working in Admissions provides. Meeting prospective students at high schools, college fairs, and information sessions is delightful, and I especially enjoy sitting down for in-depth conversations during interviews. I really want to help young people get the most out of their education and I love learning about each individual student and helping them discern how they might thrive here at Emmanuel and further!
