Weather: In the winter, it's freezing but that's what you should expect in the Bronx.

Academics: Some professors are amazing while others are lacking in talent. It all depends on who you pick.

Campus Housing: Some rooms are small while others are bigger so you get lucky based on where you are in the building.

Greek Life: There aren't many sororities or fraternities but they seem pretty cool. Not many people take it as seriously as bigger state schools.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety but some things are expensive. The cheapest places to go are Subway and Burger King.

Off-Campus Housing: Riverdale is a great place to live. Off campus housing is great if you're an upperclassmen and want to save some money. Overlook Manor is a hit or a miss

Campus Housing: Dorms allow you to get close with people you see daily. Horan is probably the worst option to live in while East Hill is the nicest/cleanest. Living in Jasper as a freshman is a MUST if you want to make friends

Majors: the Education program at Manhattan College is fantastic. All the professors are committed to your education and are extremely helpful. The work load challenges you but is not to much to handle.My teachers all have connections and have guaranteed all of us jobs upon graduation in the state of New York.

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.
