| The education program at Emmanuel is great. The professors are so helpful! Its a dry campus but honestly you walk outside the campus and your in Boston why would you stay on campus to party? The students are all really nice and if you join a club making friends is easy. The food is really good and they try to switch it up all the time. |

| It all depends on what you do.|
1) If you come here for sciences, then you're in for a rewarding, challenging experience. Your professors will all be available to guide you, and will be happy to draft a four-year plan of study. Seminars on engaging topics, new research, and the state of academia are held frequently, moderated in a friendly and open manner, and sometimes involve free food.
If you came here for business, marketing, performing arts... then have fun deciding your major while enjoying the best Boston has to offer. The education program here's pretty legit, but make sure you know what you'd like to focus on, ideally. tl;dr sciences, education are pretty good.
2) Quality of life: while they try to switch the food up as much as possible, you're going to be eating the same things, most of the time. Meh. Dorm life is okay, as long as you get clean roommates. The only really detrimental factor is the internet: it's pretty slow. I used to think that was a problem with all colleges, but citywide visits have proved that its not the case.
3) Fewer students means everybody knows everybody. Messed around with the wrong girl? Prooobably going to bump into her a million more times. That being said, it's not a hotbed of crime or anything, and any review that mentions "laxbros" as a detrimental factor almost certainly hasn't ever talked with one.
4) Boston. I'm from a small town, and always dread returning. This place is BANANAS. Always a famous band playing somewhere, always somewhere to go out and eat, everything you'd ever want within a subway stop or two. So it's okay.

| EC is great! It is a very small school, under 2,000 undergraduates, but that is one of the things that makes it so great. You aren't a number, you are an actual person, with thoughts, ideas, interests, and personality. Because the school is so close, the professors really get to know their students on a personal level and develop each class to the students needs. |
