Being that Manhattan College is a small campus, students pretty much will get to know 50 percent of the campus if they hang out on campus and go out Thursday nights. The majority of girls on campus is pretty, and there are a few hot girls. The majority of guys on campus is into working out and looking their best, which a lot of girls may like. You can always find guys and girls that do not look super attractive, but you can find that at any college. Everyone at Manhattan College is very outgoing and very nice. If a student makes the effort to hang out on the quad and talk to people, that student will develop a very effective social life.
The College also has a very good academic reputation. A lot of the girls in the School of Engineering and Business are really smart. Girls and guys at the College in general are smart and work hard to make sure that they get good grades and graduate from the school with a decent GPA. A lot of the students get involved and are truly looking to prepare themselves for the "real world." The only problem is that a lot of the students are from nearby areas in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Because of this, a lot of students tend to go home on weekends, giving the College a “suitcase school” reputation. This is a little bit of a downer when 40 to 50 percent of the school is gone every weekend. All in all, the College has a good ratio of guys to girls. There are a lot of smart, hardworking people that attend MC, and the College will give students the experience of a lifetime. However, you have to go out there and be outgoing to get to know all the beautiful guys and girls on campus.
