Emmanuel College is a great college! It has been an easy transition for my first year of college. Its a small university but you still receive all the qualities of a big campus, due to being in the city. As of now the college is expanding and luring more students. Lots of construction is being done on campus, but once the new residence hall is completed, it will look fantastic. One thing that the college can improve on is having more on campus sport options and intramural.

I love being at Emmanuel. I've met some wonderful people and couldn't imagine being anywhere else! I love how it's a small school with a strong sense of community but as soon as you leave the gates, you're in the big city of Boston. It's the best of both worlds. The food is great, I love the theatre department, and most professors really care about their students.

The academics at Emmanuel are great!! Professors enjoy teaching small classes where they can get to know their students and once you learn who your favorites are it is easy to contact them or be able to find them day-to-day. They will help you if you ask. I didn't think I needed that leaving high school, but after two years here I don't know anyone who wouldn't want it and my friends at larger state schools often tell me they wish for more guidance deciding on a major/internship/career as they near senior year. The academics are great, and that is the best thing Emmanuel has to offer because...

Emmanuel is expensive because you're paying for a unique experience. The campus is gated - safe and beautiful - though every year it is packed tighter and tighter with students. On-campus housing conveniently puts you right by all of your class buildings, the cafe, the library, along with Fenway Park and the Museum of Fine Arts but understandably this makes all of these areas very crowded at all times. As of recently the bathrooms in the dorms have been refinished but forced triples have become normal for freshman and even many sophomores. It can be a bit unhealthy and stressful living by so many people and the whole campus is anxiously waiting for the new dormitory, beginning construction in 2016, to be finished in 2018 so there finally will be REGULAR space.

More about living on-campus; there is lots to do. There's a great mix of interests, and some niche groups. Many students are extremely involved in Model UN or student government. Others are into sports, mostly lacrosse or soccer. There are many art majors, skaters, and musical talents and much much more. The school is the size of an average high school. We all eat at the same cafe on about the same schedule. It is hard not to be informed about what events are going on around campus and the school is pretty diverse in interests so a lot is offered to do.

When it comes down to it Emmanuel is very unique.
