ICYMI: New Emmanuel Logo Inspires an Alum’s Tattoo

In case you missed it, an EC alum got the new Athletics logo tattooed on their body. The tattoo belongs to none other than 2007 graduate Brett Adell. kor group, the company behind the brand enhancement initiative Emmanuel underwent this summer, originally tweeted the picture.

“My experience at Emmanuel gave me a strong foundation for my future. The faculty and staff were welcoming, supportive, and I always felt they genuinely cared about us not only as students, but as future peers. Being at Emmanuel exposed me to many individuals and opportunities that left lasting impressions on me. Many of these relationships are still strong to this day,” Adell said.

At Emmanuel, Adell was an athlete himself, throwing Shot Put for the men’s Indoor Track & Field team. He was the record holder for longest throw at 36′ 7″ until beaten on January 30, 2016 by Cameron Anderson ’17.

“I have always wanted to get a tattoo to commemorate and honor my time at Emmanuel. The old EC logo (the EC with a halo around it) felt flat to me. When I saw the new logo, it felt like the perfect representation of what I wanted my tattoo of Emmanuel to be,” he said.

Since 2007, Brett Adell works as an Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and has a private practice with two other clinicians here in Boston. He owes his experience at Emmanuel to his current success in his field and allowed for his passion for tattoos to expand further.

“Thank you for choosing Emmanuel. Thank you for continuing our legacy. Utilize every opportunity available to you. Ask questions, take pride in what you do, work hard, and use these opportunities to grow to be the person you want to be,” he says to current and future Emmanuel students. “College is one of the most unique experiences you can have in your life. Make your college experience your own. And if you see George Muise around, thank him for everything he does, he does a lot behind the scenes to make Emmanuel special.”
