Leveraging the people and places of Boston for inspiration, students in the English Department's "Ethics in Documentary Film" course grapple with the challenges and questions raised by creative work.
Kicking off the 2018-2019 academic year, Emmanuel College has opened the New Residence Hall, its largest building ever on campus, and welcomed the largest first-year class in the College’s nearly 100-year history.
Culminating a two-year-long project, the opening of the 18-story, 692-bed, apartment-style residence hall marks a historic step by the College to enhance the student experience. Providing housing to upper-class students, the multi-tower residence hall offers sweeping views of Boston as well as two-bedroom apartments that house four students each and studio apartments, all of which include in-unit bathrooms, living rooms and kitchens.
The New Residence Hall also offers common areas and amenities open to all students, namely a Dunkin' Donuts with café seating and Joe Di's Food Mart (both opening in late September), the Margaret L. McKenna '83 Media Center, a Dance Studio, a Fitness Center, various lounges and patio space, and group study rooms. The open and welcoming ground floor enhances the vibrancy of the campus and serves as a gathering space for the entire Emmanuel community. Here students socialize, study, create and relax-anytime, day or night.
Further adding to the liveliness of Emmanuel's campus, the College has welcomed more than 650 new students, including first-year and transfer students. The Class of 2022 now represents the largest first-year class in Emmanuel College's history.
