Say hello to our new co-chair!

Hi colleagues,

We’d like to introduce the new co-chair of the Advising Alliance, Emilee Ali! Emelie is currently a Program Coordinator at the Honors Program.


Emelie Ali (pronounced EM – uh – l ee) is a graduate from Manhattanville College with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Creative Writing. During her time as an undergraduate, Emelie was the student representative of Manhattanville’s Castle Scholar’s Honors Program.  It was her duty to attend to students’ questions and plan academic events. She believes her experience working with an academic administration, as well as working with students, gives her the knowledge and understanding to support students’ needs. Her goal as program coordinator is to ensure students have access to the tools they need to succeed within the honors program while having fun.  Emelie believes finding the time to enjoy oneself is an integral part of the college experience. On her free time, Emelie attempts to write poetry, binge watch TV shows, and take long naps with her small dog.


Please join us in welcoming Emeile to the Advising Alliance Executive Committee!
