What is your favorite thing about Emmanuel College?

My favorite thing about Emmanuel is our campus. There is so much greenspace while also being right in the heart of Boston. You are able to get the best of both worlds.

What is your favorite thing to do in Boston?

My favorite thing to do in Boston is seeing shows and concerts with my friends. I am also a huge Bruins fan so I try to attend as many games as possible. 

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

Trust your instincts. The college search process can be overwhelming, but you can feel it when you find the school that is the right fit and makes you feel at home. 

What is the most exciting aspect of working in Admissions?

I love getting to meet new students everyday who are excited about college and all of the new experiences they will have.
