Emmanuel College - Massachusetts Reviews

I have just completed my first semester during the Coronavirus Pandemic. All the students at Emmanuel had to do their schooling at home. However, we were offered so many resources and the teachers were very helping in making their students succeed. I am a nursing student which is a really hard major. But I utilized all their resources and was able to get satisfactory grades this semester! Also, I want to mention that the staff that works in the disabilities center is super awesome.

I loved attending Emmanuel. I walked on campus and felt right at home. The community within the huge city meant that your professors knew your name, but that you also had many opportunities to create yourself as you applied to internships (or student teaching in my case). I took advantage of clubs and work study jobs and met a lot of good people along the way! I always felt safe on campus, even during the Boston Marathon Bombings and am so jealous of the new Julie Hall! EC really is about how much you put yourself out there, I was involved and made the most of each experience, while my friends/roommates were more secluded but also loved their time and are successful in their careers.
The professors, classes, campus, and neighborhood are exceptional. Diversity and safety are terrible, however, as this college is still Catholic and thus their handling of sexual assault and LGBTQ/Race issues are ABYSMAL - I am not exaggerating. Parents should be legitimately concerned about sending their daughters here as almost all assaults here go un-reported (by the coercion of Emmanuel), and those reported are seldom adequately charged.

The food is excellent, with caveats - the Bon Appetit management company is incredibly rude and robotic which means poor dietary options, payment policies, hours, employee abuse, etc. Compared to other similarly sized schools in the area, our *food* is still better, just don't eat at the Muddy River Café as you will feel perpetually sick from the excessive grease.

The athletics and parties are average to me, but it's not something I particularly cared about. The career center is not helpful - you need to be the one to take initiative off-campus.
