Growing up in a suburban town outside of Boston, going to college in the city had always been a goal for Jake. After touring Emmanuel's campus he felt it had the perfect mixture of “small campus feel and big city appeal.”
Emmanuel is steps from cultural sights and museums, world-renowned hospitals and research institutions, and the home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park.
The Emmanuel College campus is in the heart of Boston's Fenway neighborhood, which means easy access to all that is cultural, historic and fun. Besides the famous ballpark that bears its name, the Fenway area offers visitors a tale of two cities: the innovative and urban vs. the lush and serene.
As a part of the Longwood Medical and Academic Area, Emmanuel is located within a hub of hospitals, colleges and research institutes, including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School and Boston Children's Hospital. Our location offers students interested in healthcare, science and technology a head start in developing skills for future careers.
Our neighborhood isn't just about medicine and research. It's also home to Boston art institutions like the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, where you can become inspired by the brush strokes of the great masters of art.
Across the street from campus, the Muddy River offers us a front-row seat to Boston's Emerald Necklace series of six parks and waterways stretching throughout the city. Designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who is perhaps best known for his creation of Manhattan's Central Park, the park system includes miles of green spaces, bike and running trails, rivers and ponds for all to enjoy.
