Majors: I have not had an internship yet but when I do get one, I hope for it to be everything I hoped for. I hope it is a reassurance that I picked the correct major and that I love what I will be doing for almost the rest of my life.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The reason I go to this school is for the well known business program and the alumni that work in the city.

Campus Housing: The dorms are very strict, you can sneak alcohol in but if you're having people in your room it cannot be very loud.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are two highly known places, Riverdale Diner and Jasper Deli. Those are about the only two options and not very healthy options.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The night life at Manhattan College is okay, very repetitive. The same kids go to the same bars every weekend.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing in Manhattan is incredibly expensive, for what your options are. The areas around the school aren't very safe either so it is not worth the money or risk.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The subway is super close and brings you right into the city.

Athletics: The basketball team made it to the NCAA which was awesome!

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's not that strict of a campus. But you have to respectful and smart if you are going to party.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Jasper hall is by far the best building but sadly I got stuck with the runt of the rooms. Otherwise, the rooms are huge and it's great

Manhattan College is a small college located in the greatest city in the world. Because of the school's size, students have the opportunity to know half of their college, which is something that isn't possible at many other institutions. There is a great student-to-faculty ratio, so teachers generally know students by their first names. The professors care about the students and make sure that they graduate and are prepared to succeed in the "real world." There are some things that are missing from the College, like a football team, but Manhattan still has a lot of energy and life.

The best part of the College is the people. The trick is getting to know them. If you do, you can see just how cool and fun everyone is. The professors are intense in the classroom, but outside of class, they are really chill and are always looking to help you. There are students that are slackers and there are students that are really hardworking, but the majority of the school is somewhere in the middle. Most students work hard to get good grades, but at the same time, they are not hermits—they get involved in clubs, go out to bars, and build themselves a unique social life. The College does not have a lot of on-campus parties, mostly just friends drinking in their rooms, which can be a good and bad thing. Good, because it is quiet and allows students to concentrate on their studies. Bad, because it can get slightly boring with the same thing every week—no excitement at all. However, partying is not a problem nor a reason not to be interested in the school. The College gives you everything a student could possibly want, from a small and comfortable atmosphere to the thrills of a Division I school.
