The Emma Admissions team is on the road again!

"Kicking the year off traveling is so meaningful! You really get to see the full admissions picture and share excitement with families who are starting the application process,” says Assistant Director of Admissions Molly Riley. “Enriching the Emma community is such an integral part of our work, and it is so rewarding to speak with people on the road who are as excited about Emma as we are!"

Travel in full swing for the Emma Willard Admissions team means traveling all over the United States and the globe to meet new families at school fairs and other events. Prepared with information on everything Emma, the team sets up their table and is ready to go during this busy fall season!

In addition to these events, the team is also sharing their expertise in the independent school industry: Jing Zhang-Benavot, Director of International Recruitment and Retention, presented at the Enrollment Management Association's (EMA) Conference on Interpersonal Communications in International Recruitment in Las Vegas, NV. 

“It was very inspiring to see the folks who came to my session from schools in different countries, and different parts of the U.S.,” says Jing. “One same goals we share is that we care for international students; we want to help them to find the best fit schools; and we want to assist them to thrive at our own institution.”

High travel season from the team is starting to wrap up, but there are still plenty of opportunities to meet them on the road!

Of course, we think the best way to decide if Emma is the school for you is to see it first-hand. Spend time on campus, meet students and teachers, and envision yourself in this historic place we call home through several events: 

  • Explore Emma, a student-led tour of our historic campus, ending with refreshments and members of the admissions team to answer your questions
  • Experience Emma, a deep-dive into everything Emma including a student-led tour, time with current students, parents, faculty, and more!
  • Virtual Fireside Chat, virtually learn more about life at Emma from the student perspective
  • Virtual Affording Emma Webinar, a virtual information session to demystify the financial aid process
