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

There is a strong sense of community. Everyone really gets to know eachother or are familiar with eachother. Going to school here you get to take advantage of the school's resources and the city of Boston's resources as well. You will not regret attending Emmanuel College. Every weekend there are always multiple parties going on and there are plenty of bars in the neighborhood. Always something going on or off campus.

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

To make sure you apply to multiple schools. You should analyze what you are looking for in a school first, like whether or not you want a small or big school, urban or suburban setting, proximity to home, how much financial aid they offer their students. All of these are critical factors. Once in college make sure you do well academically. However, make sure you balance academics with social life and campus involvement.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone that is looking for a small school in a big city. However, academics are important here so make sure you are willing to work otherwise this school will not work out for you. Professors and fellow students are always there though if you need the extra help.

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

The best advice I could give parents about finding the right college for their children would be to allow them to ultimately make the decision. Facilitate your child in visiting colleges, and be supportive and proactive in the college search. Don't let the cost of a college's tuition deter you or your child from a prospective college. There are thousands of scholarships available; it just takes a little time and research. My advice to students about finding the right college is to visit as many colleges as you can; when you have found your place you will feel it the moment you step onto the campus. Go into college open-minded and eager to meet people and learn about who you are and who you want to be. Embrace and absorb everything you are being introduced to, the new and especially the strange. To make the most of your college experience, do the things you are afraid of. You will never regret the things you do, only the things don't.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Visiting hours start after 5pm on weekdays, and visitors are expected to pay $10-$20/day.

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

For prospective parents I would stress the importance of having your child visit the schools before making a decision. No matter how many booklets you read and survey results you study, nothing compares to seeing it all firsthand. While your visiting the school be sure to ask regular students how they feel about the institution. Tour guides may be honest, but they are trained to spin everything and their job is to sell you the school. For students, dont choose a school simply based on the cafeteria, or the beach down the street. The academics are a crucial element in making your decision. These are the classes you'll be taking for the next four years, you don't want to go to a big school where most classes are lecture taught if you know you learn better in a small interactive environment. Once you do find the right school, don't be shy! College is all about experimenting and meeting new people. You will find people you fit in with but it might take some trial and error. Finally, dont be afraid to try new things, you never know what you'll fall in love with.

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

It is important for the college search to be taken seriously and done enthusiastically. Firstly, I would advise parents and students to visit as many schools as possible as early as possible. Then, apply early - get it over with! I strongly recommend applying to multiple schools, to expand your options. Also, apply to AS MANY scholarships as possible. Never again will so much free money be at your fingertips! Parents: encourage and help with the process, but don't take it over. It should ultimately be the student's decision (of course, while still considering the parent's opinion). Students: Do your research and do what feels right for YOU. Students, once you get to college, remember these three things: 1. Adjusting to college can be tough, but keep a positive attitude and you WILL make friends. 2. You will probably be paying THOUSANDS of dollars to be there, so STAY FOCUSED! Study hard, and then you will have the time to have fun, too. 3. Finally, take advantage of all of the opportunities at college: the amazing speakers, study abroad opportunities, volunteer opportunities, and more. Learn as much as you can while you are there, both academically and personally.

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

Prior to coming to Emmanuel, I wish that I could have known that merit-based scholarships would not transfer for students who wish to study abroad. Furthermore, I wish that I could have known that due to the fact that Emmanuel is a small school, some courses are only offered once every two years, making it difficult to sign up for them, especially for students who study abroad for one semester.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

As stated above, my biggest frustrations deal with those involved with studying abroad: the lack of transferable financial aid, and the fact that some courses will be impossible for me to take. Also, because Emmanuel is small, many things on campus close earlier than I think they should (dining hall, library, mac lab, etc.)
