What does The 1804 Society do?

Throughout our time in the program we work as ambassadors on our campus. We assist in multiple events for a multitude of offices on campus as well as the President’s Office. We are able to collaborate with Sisters on our campus as well as in the surrounding area. We work to continue the presence of tradition throughout our campus by contributing to our Founder’s Week Celebrations and Class traditions. In addition to our yearly work we have a curriculum that to complete as we grow through the program. This curriculum is as follows:

Year 1 – Education

Education is one of the core principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur’s mission. We take the first year with our organization to exemplify this. We attend various workshop and training sessions in order to develop a better knowledge of the Sisters and Emmanuel College. We also are able to develop ourselves more as individuals and a student leaders.

Year 2 – Service

Not only do we continue our campus culture through our service work, but we also continue and spread the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. We collaborate with many service site throughout the city of Boston and lend a hand where it is needed. Throughout this second year we aim to create lasting connection with the service sites that we assist throughout the semester. This service component will continue till a students senior year.

Senior Year – Senior Project

All of our senior students work to create a senior project. These projects encompass all that they have accomplished and learned throughout their time in the Society. Many projects focus on our sisters abroad so that they can continue their efforts, while others focus revitalizing the mission of the Sisters throughout the Emmanuel College Community.
