Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Emmanuel is a vibrant, tight-knit community. What makes EC so especially unique is its "campus inside a city" location. While walking on the beautiful green campus, you would never know you were actually in the city of Boston, with Fenway Park literally two minutes down the street! There are an endless amount of things to do, both on and off campus. There's always something going on!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You only live once, follow your heart. Deal with the expenses later.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Emmanuel is not your typical college experience. Because of Emmanuel's urban location, it can be a challenge to find affordable housing within the city, while other more rurally located schools have an excess of housing available. In addition, everyone knows everyone because of the small college population. While this is not usually a bad thing, you can never walk across campus without seeing someone you know.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure to visit each campus that you are seriously considering. Talk to students on campus and ask how they really feel about the things that are most important to you. Don't be afraid to ask about their social lives and how the food is! Once you've chosen your school, commit to it. Get involved on campus by joining a club or two. Finding an on-campus job is a great way to meet people and make your mark on certain departments that can benefit you in the future. For example, working as an office assistant in the Residence Life department can make you the connections that you need to become a Resident Assistant. This gives you excellent leadership experience and financial assistance! Set aside time for studying, and make sure to go to all Review Sessions and to meet with your professors regularly. If they know you are working hard, it can make an impact on your final grade! ENJOY college, it goes too fast!

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person who should attend this school should be outgoing, a self-starter, and open-minded. Emmanuel will challenge you to think outside of the box and live and interact with people unlike anyone you have ever met. The ability to adapt to these situations is crucial.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice to parents and students looking for that ?perfect college? is to stop! You won?t find the perfect college. There will be things that happen at any school in question that make you want to scream: ?WHY DID I EVER GO HERE?? Hopefully those moments will be far and few between but they'll happen. When looking for a college for you or your child you really just need to take everything in and ask ?Does this feel right? Does this school care about me not just my wallet?? This can be hard to do with the schmooze-fest most schools put on; finger-foods, gushing students, and free gear emblazed with the school logo. Suddenly you?re thinking: ?Wow, all this for me?? DON?T. You deserve it all given what you?ll be handing over. Go somewhere that you feel, when you?re in a jam, is going to go the distance for you because that?s when it all really matters. Plenty of people find their ?perfect school? on their first try; others transfer. Just make sure you?re happy because, at the end of the day, that?s all that truly matters.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emmanuel is a gold mine. It's a small school that will be on the rise. If you are looking for a small school in a big city, look no further. It's located right near Fenway Park and is one of the 5 Fenway Colleges. They've made and are continuing to make major renovations to the campus. The Academic Science building is set to open Fall of 09. Merck is right on campus and offers many internships to students. The school's population is around 1600 and the classroom sizes vary from 5-20. The professors will all likely know your name and will know all your classmates by graduation. It has a home feel to it and the food is great. They have amazing options and real good quality food. I've visited several friends from different campuses and Emmanuel by far has the best food. As for extracirricular activies, Emmanuel makes a big effort to get the students involved. There is usually a club holding an event every week and the student activities office offers discount tickets through the year to different sporting events (red sox, bruins, celtics) shows, and/or other events in the surrounding area. YOU DO NOT NEED A CAR in this area. The train which is probably a good 5 minute walk takes you all over the city. The great thing about this school is it's location. If you ever just want to get away, the city is at your doorstep. Although this school might not be perfect for everyone, it is very unique and would make a perfect school for the right person.

What are the academics like at your school?

Like at any school, there are good and not so good professors. If you plan on taking a pol/sci class, TAKE NATOLI! She is awesome!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Some advice that I would give students in their search for the right college would be to visit as many schools as you can. It really helps to be on campus and to see students that go there. Remember to ask lots of questions while visiting schools, or while talking to students. Also, if you have a friend in college ask them if you can spend the night in their dorm. That way you can get a taste of the transition from home life to dorm life. One last thing I would offer a student as advice would be to keep your financial situation in mind. See which school is offering you the most money. Some advice for parents would be to be supportive of your your childs school decisions, and help them in anyway that you can. For example, help them make visits, keep on top of them to meet deadlines, and remind them to continue to do well senior year of high school because in some cases colleges will revoke acceptances if grades fall severely.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who plans on skipping lots of classes and partying a lot. The classes are small and most teachers take attendance at the beginning of each class. Also, the campus is dry, so a lot of partying could eventually lead to not being able to live on-campus.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known in the rea for having the best dining hall, doing the most community service and for its fashion show. The past few years it has thrown numerous social activities sponsored by HUELLAS and the Black Student Union and they have become somewhat legendary in the area attracting students from all over Boston and creating considerable hype. This school is extremely minority friendly and the services rendered to minorities are unbeatable.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would highly suggest visiting the school you are considering before making any committments. There is a huge difference between a school on paper and a school in real life. The only way to see if you will fit well with a school is to go and visit. The most important part of suceeding at a new school is feeling comortable. If you dont feel comfortable in an environment it makes it exponentially harder to do well. The best way to make the most of your college experience is to try everything. Have no limits no preconcieved notions and go all out. You never know when you will try something new and fall in love with it. Try intramural sports, its a great way to meet new people, get a good workout and break from studying. Don't become best friends with your roommate and a few others and stop branching out. Definately make new friends, but dont limit yourself to them continue to try new things and meet new people. Networking is important after college but it's during college that you make the best contacts. Always continue to broaden your horizons, never limit yourself in any way.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

When braging to my friends about my school it's all about location, location, location! Directly down the street from Fenway Park? Prime location in Boston with easy acess to the rest of the city? You just cant beat it. The dining hall is also pretty awsome, and extremely environmentally friendly and informative. They keep it interesting with different activities throughout the year. Another positive point is the size. It's quite small and the classes are all reasonably sized so you really get to know your professors and they truely care about your sucess.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Dear Scholar, never settle for mediocrity. Do not allow teachers (or even parents) tell you where you should be educated because their opinions are not necessarily your own. If going to college is important to you, then do as much research as possible (i.e. ideal location of college, names of colleges offering desired programs, etc.). If your ideal college is seemingly too expensive, cancel these thoughts. There are so many avenues for you to accrue the funds necessary to attend your future college. There may be scholarships offered within your community and via other resources (i.e. websites). It is, furthermore, critical that you apply to a variety of colleges (i.e. colleges more and less challenging to be accepted into). In this way, you can attend college even if the college is not your first choice. Many students transfer to other colleges (i.e. to your first choice) during their college career. Whatever you decide to do, never settle for less because your potential is unlimited.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I really wished that I knew about the lack of marine courses and programs within the Colleges of the Fenway (Simmons, Mass College of Art, Mass College of Pharmacy, Wheelock, Emmanuel, and Wentworth).

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I love my school, and my major is a very demanding one. However, I become frustrated when Emmanuel prides itself on listening to its students and their opinions because it does not happen. For example, I recently addressed an issue with our meal plan. I felt like I was being passed around and being "yesed" to death. It was frustrating because I honestly do not believe that my opinion will be taken into consideration.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise students to research a school that best fits the major that they are interested first. It is essential to get a proficient background in the major of a student's choice because this will provide the skills for a successful future. It is also important to base the school on a student's personality and needs. If a student is not happy in their environment, then they will never be successful at school.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The advisors are not well informed and do not guide your future in the correct direction.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college is really important. I would first look at if you want a big or small college that has big or small classes. Then you should think about what career you want and what you want to study. You should also not only choose a school that has one thing you would like to study, but many different things in case you change your mind and want to study something else. Then there will be a lot of options for you. I would suggest a liberal arts college if you are not completely sure what you want your career to be. I would then suggest looking at your friends and the kind of people that you like to spend time with and be surrounded by and go a college that has many of these type of people in it. I would really suggest getting involved in campus activities to help meet like minded people. Go into college with an open mind and really try to put yourself out there and you will make friends in no time!
