As family members, you are invited to participate in our one-day Family Orientation on the first day of your student's Orientation program. Although student and family programs are held on the same dates, they are conducted as separate sessions. You will attend a number of informational sessions, meet faculty, staff and current students, and learn about Emmanuel College. Topics such as the transition to college, academic success, student health and safety, living on campus or commuting, and tuition bill and payment options will be covered. The program begins at 9:30 a.m. and concludes at 5:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided as part of the program.
"Family Orientation is our chance to meet with parents and family members directly and highlight all the great programs available to their students. It's our way of inviting them into the Emmanuel family."
- Mary Beth Thomas, Assistant Dean for Community Standards and Family Programs

Kathleen Le '22
Kathleen Le ’22 is a first time Orientation Leader (OL). Although she has not declared a major yet, she is an intended biology major. Kathleen decided to be an OL to share her experiences as a first-generation, Asian-American student. As a commuter, Kathleen hopes to teach prospective students that life living off campus doesn’t mean a life disconnected from campus. “I love taking my experiences and using them to help others,” she says. “And being an OL gives me the chance to do so.”
Kathleen decided to focus on academics during her first year at Emmanuel, and she looks forward to engaging in more cocurricular activities during her sophomore year. She advises incoming first-year students to be open-minded, and notes, “You only get one chance at this! Take advantage of everything you can and make the most out of your college experience.” One thing Kathleen loves about Emmanuel is the diversity that is present in the School of Science & Health. She says, “The professors all come from different backgrounds and stories, and they are also very relatable in many aspects.”
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Orientation Hotline at 617-735-9817 or at email@example.com.
