A Reminder to Emmanuel Students about On-Campus Improvements

With the start of the academic year underway, we’d like to take the opportunity to reiterate and further clarify some recent improvements we’ve made to Emmanuel’s campus. As a reminder, these changes reflect our ongoing dedication to ensuring the best possible living and learning experience for our students.

Parking on Campus

The College recently updated its parking regulations in an effort to maintain more walking and activity space for students on campus. Changes include:

  • Parking is now restricted on the residence hall-side of campus. There is 30-minute parking designated for Campus Safety-authorized drop-offs and deliveries. Please stop at the Campus Safety booth to secure permission to park in a 30-minute drop off/delivery space. Campus Safety will strictly enforce the time limit to ensure sufficient spaces are available.
  • All individuals parking on campus are required to have a valid parking tag. Day parking (Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.) is restricted to student commuters who live outside Boston/Brookline and employees who have College-issued parking permits.
  • Emmanuel students and their guests who wish to park on campus in the evening or on the weekend (Monday through Friday between 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. or noon on Saturday/Sunday) must purchase a single-day parking pass, 24 hours in advance, at the Campus Safety Office (Administration 139). The cost is $10 per day. Campus Safety will issue the single-day pass to guests when they arrive at the booth at the front gate of campus. Parents are also required to be registered (preferably in advance) at which time the parking fee will be waived. These procedures are in place to strengthen the safety of the campus by ensuring visitors are guests of our community members.

Reserving Study Space

In response to student requests, we increased the quantity of open study space on campus. Even better, you can now reserve group study space via our new Emmanuel College student mobile app!

To reserve study space via the app, click on “EC Online Services” then select “Group Study Room Booking.”

Haven’t downloaded the mobile app yet? Search for “Emmanuel College Student App” on either the Apple or Google Play app store to download today!

A Message from the President: On the Shooting in Florida

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

Two days ago, Ash Wednesday, we heard of yet another horrific school shooting in our country. By the time it was over, 17 people, both students and educators, lay dead inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The confessed gunman, a 19-year-old former student, committed this atrocity using a semiautomatic rifle, which he had purchased legally.

For all the innocent victims of this tragedy, and for their families and friends, we offer sincere condolences and prayer. Yet there is more that we can and should do to honor those lost on Wednesday and in many previous shootings.

As a Catholic College, we are called to examine and address the structures in our society that allow such senseless acts of violence to continue. Like Emmanuel College students and faculty have done for over nine decades, we today must engage in critical social analysis of the root causes of the problems of our day and reflect on effective responses and actions.

I invite all members of our College community to take an active role in public life by being well informed, by communicating with our legislators and by exercising our voting privilege. On and beyond this campus, may we continue to be people of conscience, compassion and commitment.

Sister Janet Eisner, SND
President
