| Emmanuel College, honestly, provides an absolutely top notch education if you allow it to. There are privileged idiots, absolutely, but for every idiot there is also a MIND BLOWINGLY BRILLIANT, or talented student. There is plenty to do and get involved in, the campus is gorgeous, and overall Emmanuel is wonderful. |

| I came to Emmanuel College bright eyed and bushy tailed thinking it was going to be the best college experience. In high school I was the over achiever; a three sport athlete, president of NHS, and my class vice president. I thought being at a small school like Emmanuel would help me shine in college too. Boy, was I wrong. Once I got to college, I realized that I didn't want high school part 2, and that's exactly what it's like at Emmanuel. Living in Boston, I wanted to become independent, and they don't encourage that at all. |
First off, though having small class sizes has its advantages, I absolutely loathe the fact that I see the same faces every day. Being at a small college means you either know everyone, or you know their face. It's very high school-y for that reason. You know everyone's business, and a lot of the people are snobby and unfriendly- not all, but a good handful. There are times when I would love to grab a tea at the cafe and sit and read a book, but everyone stares at you if you are alone.
Secondly, the orientation leaders are terribly click-y. At orientation I looked up to them, even wanted to be one eventually, but when I got to school, I found out a good handful of them are rude and the other half don't even acknowledge your existence.
The friends I have made are great, but they aren't what I expected. I thought I'd have intriguing conversations with people about film, language and world travel. A lot of the guys here are "lax bros" and tools, and the girls are slutty and have no self-respect. The rest are silently praying until they can transfer.
I will say, most of the professors I had my first semester were great, I found my favorite, and were always very helpful. My American Art teacher however is a crabby old woman who only likes boys, and trust me, they milk her for all she?s worth.
I never thought I'd want to transfer. I was always the peppy girl with school spirit-which Emmanuel lacks immensely- and now I can't wait to transfer. I?m applying to a larger school in Boston, because I still love the city, but I want a real University experience.
All in all, Emmanuel College was a disappointment, and a real learning experience. After spring semester, I hope to never have to set foot on campus again. I'll miss the people, but I won't be too far away. Emmanuel has a dishonest administration (I know as I work in one of the offices where I experience it every day) and when I see tours, I see the kids fall for the same lies the school fed me. I'm taking it as a learning experience, and getting the heck out of dodge.

| I really love Emmanuel College. I just transferred in as a second semester freshman and there are just so many good things about it. I think people give it a bad name because it's TINY and not a typical college environment. It's not a huge campus with big sports teams like other Boston Schools, but it's a very legitmate, solid, Co-Catholic, liberal arts school with caring advisors and faculty and Boston is your backyard. Can't go wrong there!|
Emmanuel is supposed to soon, within the next couple of years, become more competitive in terms of admission. Our brand new Academic Science Center was just completed also.
The foods great, the professors are helpful and I've enjoyed all of my classes. There's a good choice of housing options also.
I enjoy everything about Emmanuel College and have no regrets about coming here.
You'll really enjoy it here if you come here with a positive attitude and open mind. The school is a little pricey but I think the education you get is worth the money!I recommend Emmanuel College wholeheartedly.
