Manhattan College is located in the most diverse city in the country, where you can find every race and nationality. Sadly, this is not the case for the Manhattan College campus. The majority of campus is Caucasian and Catholic. There is also a good, but not great, amount of Latinos on campus, a majority of which are commuters and heavily involved with the Commuter Student Association. There are more African Americans attending MC, but it’s not significantly noticeable. Hopefully, this will change in the future.
Again, Manhattan College is in the most diverse city in the world, and if the College could market itself better and get better programs, it could open itself up to a more diverse group of students. On the whole, the campus does work together and share similar interests. A lot of the students like hip-hop, so this creates a unified atmosphere and similar style. Also, most of the campus is from New York, so this adds another common interest and facilitates similar attitudes that New Yorkers possess. Hopefully, the diversity of Manhattan College will improve in the near future and more minorities will apply and be accepted to the College. With renovations and adjustments like a new dorm and communications department, the College could experience major growth over the next couple of years.
