What is your favorite thing about Emmanuel College?

My favorite thing about Emmanuel is the size and the location of the College. With small class sizes, students are able to connect with peers and faculty and enjoy our location in the Fenway neighborhood. It is truly the best of both worlds as a college student!

What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?

I am an avid Boston sports fan and I love going to games down at Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox, as well as the TD Garden to see the Celtics and the Bruins. I also enjoy Quincy Market and the Seaport district. There’s always so much to do!

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

Engage as much as you can and ask as many questions as possible. Go to visits, tours, events, anything that you can to make the college decision that is right for you. It is the one true point in your life where you can reset who you want to be, so make sure it’s the right fit for you!

What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?

I love being able to share how special Emmanuel is to prospective students and their families and having the chance to share my own experience as a recent graduate of the College. I enjoy being able to make a difference in a student's college search process.
