Emmanuel College - Massachusetts Reviews

622 reviews
All Categories
Professors are very helpful and are punctual responding to emails, allowing you to get an A or A- with all but the most incompetent professors if you put in the work. Online classes are terrible, professors are unavailable for weeks at the time and you have less control over your grade.

Without a scholarship, fees are high but being located in the heart of Boston makes it very convenient to find things to do off campus.

Campus and Dorms are nothing to write home about except for the New Residents Hall which is only available for Juniors and Seniors.

The Athletics are lackluster and not many people attend games

There isn't a variety of clubs and organizations to join even within the entire COF, starting a club is difficult because the school is in debt. Every now and then you will meet a nice person but the social life is lackluster if you do not classify under the following categories : New Englander, caucasion or privileged and even then, friends are not guaranteed.

I like that teachers are always available via email and office hours but most classes are often uninspiring ; you will be pushed unless you take the initiative to push yourself. Most classes are an easy A as long as you know what to study (This is made easy by the fact professors and almost always available).

Staff are very friendly, there is a good selection of food, and the campus is located in a great place, just a short walk away from most places in Boston.

Social life on campus is extremely limited due to being a small school with only about 1800 students and little diversity. Emmanuel is a majority white and upper - middle class catholic school where most study Biology or Psychology. I do not fit any of this criteria, and have found it extremely difficult to socialize although this can be attributed to my commuter status. Despite the dry campus nature of the school, many students are here to have fun first and study later, further isolating the career driven.
I am currently a junior at Emmanuel College with a Biology major and a Political Science and Sustainability minor. Emmanuel in my opinion is a great university due to its focus on academic and career oriented internships. Emmanuel is a very small school which allows for small class sizes, one on one relationships with professors, and campus where everyone knows your name. Academically, Emmanuel truly excels but socially because of its' size, it lacks school spirit. If you get involved then it is a great fit for you but if you do not you miss the social benefits of college. Overall, I believe Emmanuel is a great institution that has helped prepare me for the workforce and gave me a great college experience thus far.
