Welcome back! We hope everyone had a productive summer!
This month, Emmanuel kicked off its 96th academic year, and we welcomed the Class of 2019 to campus – not our Centennial Class just yet, but the class that will graduate during our Centennial in 2019. Our one-hundred-year milestone of educating students in the Catholic intellectual tradition is just around the corner, and it’s an achievement we’re extremely proud of! And we’re in good company! Boston is a great town to go to college, but it’s more that JUST a college town. It’s a sports-crazed, culturally-engaged, globally-connected city that makes it an ideal place to study, intern, research and develop a career.
Yesterday, Boston.com published a list of Boston-area colleges from the youngest to the oldest, and even at nearly a century old, Emmanuel falls in the middle of this range, with schools such as the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering and the Urban College of Boston’s beginning in the 1990s, all the way to Harvard’s founding in 1636.
