What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like Emmanuel because of it's location in the city for the most part, but the campus also feels secluded which is nice at times too. The facilities are almost all new which is great and class sizes are small which makes it easy to be close with professors. Emmanuel could improve in aspects of their on campus housing, however, they are building a high rise for students to live on campus so this may solve that problem. Overall, I enjoy Emmanuel.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The faculty here at Emmanuel always looks out for what is best for students. There isn't a single faculty member here who wants you to fail. When it comes to the classes, as long as you manage your time wisely you will 100% be successful. There are various resources on campus that you should take advantage of (peer tutoring, databases, office hours). When it comes to dorm life I do not feel safe because I unfortunately have not had the best of luck with roommates. However, when it comes to dorm size and bathrooms everything is perfect. The RA's always have fun events that help make the dorm life a slight bit better during a hectic week.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emmanuel is a great school in a wonderful place with so much to do. Emmanuel is located in Boston Massachusetts, which personally I find to be the ideal location. It has the small campus feel in the largest city in MA. The school provides a wide array of areas of study which is essential for the undecided student like me. Overall I believe it is a school that every prospective college student should look in to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I enjoy attending Emmanuel College. It's a nice, small campus and while I feel as though there isn't much diversity among the students, I feel like there are efforts made to address the issue. Overall, it has and will continue to be a positive experience in my life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emmanuel is a small, tight-knit community all about academics and community service. When I first attended Emmanuel, I thought it was going to be a very Catholic influenced school, but the school is open to all walks of faith without any judgment. The clubs on campus are all very diverse and there is definitely something for everyone. The location of Emmanuel is, in my opinion, one of the best locations for a college in Boston. There is always something to do in the Fenway area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While I don't live on campus and commute It is a great college, and so much to do in or around the college. There is always activities or clubs you can join. Or events to go attend. The faculty is very pleasant and always willing to help which is great. I enjoy my classes and the people I have with them. There is nothing here to make me not want to be a student here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy going to Emmanuel College. The school has made me grow into an independent individual capable of navigating a big city. Before coming to Emmanuel I relied on the people around me instead of myself to get things done. Going to Emmanuel I learned how to depend on myself with the help of professors to lean on when I needed an adult for guidance. Overall, Emmanuel has given me ample opportunities to prosper into a successful young adult.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emmanuel is the ideal college for somebody who is searching for a big city experience while also having a small town feel on campus. The location of Emmanuel is perfect for exploring the city of Boston and all the wonderful opportunities that lie in the fast-paced city life (work opportunities, museums, tons of nearby universities, parks, Fenway park, etc.). The location of the college is in the Fenway neighborhood, with several nearby colleges and a large park right across the street. The public transportation system gives students the opportunity to easily and cheaply get around the city of Boston. At the same time, the Emmanuel College campus and population is quite small, allowing for a small community feel. Students get to know their professors on a more personal level, if they choose to. The classes are challenging enough to give you a good education, but not too difficult to make it through. The class size is usually always under 20 students. The staff on campus is very friendly and accommodating; they're always trying to give you the best college experience. For a small college Emmanuel offers very nice facilities. The cafeteria is nice, and the food is excellent! There are vegan and vegetarian options, as well as constantly changing menu of meals that are prepared in front of your very own eyes. There also is a desert bar and a salad bar. The campus has two gym facilities for those who are into exercise. There are plenty of "hang-out" areas, providing students with opportunities to socialize or have late night study sessions. Campus housing is available for those who are interested. The freshman housing is not necessarily the most glamorous option, but it does keep you within a 5 minute walk of your classes as well as all the other facilities on campus. For upperclassmen, there are better housing options with more modern amenities. Also, living in Boston opens the door to many opportunities of living off campus. However, it may be pricey to those who want to stay near campus. Emmanuel is recommendable to students who want to get a good education and have a close-knit campus experience, while also having the option to go out for a fun night in the city. This is not a huge party school and there are no Emmanuel fraternities. The college does offer a variety of clubs and opportunities to play sports. If you're looking for division one sports, this is not the place for you. The sports teams are average, but there are also several opportunities for recreational sports. Emmanuel College is one of the Fenway colleges, meaning you can cross-register with other colleges in the area, like MassArt, Wentworth, Wheelock and Simmons.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred to EC and it was the best decision that i could have made. I felt really comfortable on the little campus in the big city. There is always a ton of things happening in Boston and the campus culture is very comfortable. The class sizes are small enough that you really get to know your teachers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emmanuel College is a perfect hybrid, as it is a small-campus college yet still encompasses that big-campus feel. This feature is what I enjoyed most about my four years at EC and is the element that allowed me to take advantage of every kind of experience you would want to encounter while away at school. Those benefits include: • Small classes (always 20 or less and even 10 or less at times), which meant more 1:1 time with my professors that I could reach out to for references, opportunities, or “ins” when it came to finding internships and post-graduate employment. • Likewise, smaller classes meant I became closer to fellow students – more connections that I’ve been able to collaborate with over the years. • As I lived on campus all 4 years, the furthest walk to my classes was 2 minutes (and if you need to walk to the library on campus its 4, which I dramatically hated). • Once you leave the gates of EC, the city of Boston is your playground – It was hard not to find somewhere to spend your free time, from museums and theatres, shopping, and restaurants, to scenic places perfect for running or yoga (not to mention a plethora of volunteer, internship, and work opportunities). • If you want to live off-campus, there a several neighborhoods close by to find an apartment (Allston and Mission Hill). • Depending on your major, you have opportunities to take some interesting courses. There are general educational requirements to fulfill, but there are a lot of options that usually are not a bummer to get through (I took a Sexuality and Relationships course for my Religion requirement and it ended up being one of my favorites). • Being in a city can seem scary considering the stories you may hear on the news, but I always felt safe on campus. Some not so good qualities: • I found that the academic advisor assigned to you the first three years was lacking in qualities you’d think would come with your relationship with them. • You really need to take advantage of Boston more than Emmanuel (depending on your work ethic and tenacity, you should be able to gauge whether you can be successful and responsible with the opportunities presented at large to you). • Administration can be slow and almost seem like a second job tracking down the person you want to get in contact with.
