Girls here hail from more than 30 countries and 20 states. We have a great mix of boarding and day students: This is home whether you come from a few miles away or a thousand.
Emma is approximately 65 percent boarders, which means about 200 girls live in our residence halls. Emma girls live in the middle of it all, in Sage, Hyphen, and Kellas Halls.
We aim to provide as much privacy and freedom as possible in community living. And we know how to have a lot of fun too.
Life at Emma is challenging in every meaning of the word, but the halls are alive with music, conversation and peals of laughter.
“Some of the most essential parts of one’s life here at Emma Willard take place at night; the freshman hall dance parties, movie nights with your houseparent. You don't have to go far to find something going on. ... Before long the boisterous Emma nightlife will consume you.”
— Nicole Ratelle ’12
At Emma you’ll find instant community and forever friends.
