3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The Campus doesn't have very strict policies on most things, but any kind of drugs or underaged drinking they will bust if you are too obvious about it. Aside from that they aren't overbearing on most issues.

4 College Junior

Transportation: There is a variety of transportation options; public buses come regularly and aren't too expensive, the campus shuttle runs to White Plains everyday and New York on weekends, and taking the train from White Plains to NY is always an option.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is completely incompetent and has almost no options for students in need. Student Accounts is a pack of leeches that will suck you dry, and if you don't have money for them then you are barely even worth talking to.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: While there isn't much to do on or in the immediate area around Manhattanville, it is near enough to New York that you can get there pretty much any day you want.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: The only thing I really ever notice people using is Marijuana and Alcohol. However, I have heard from a lot of people that there are a lot more drugs on campus, I just don't get involved in that stuff.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love my major, which is Musical theater. My advisor helps me all the time and has kept me on track this entire year. They only thing I regret is that the Student Accounts Offices and Financial Aid don't know which students are music majors and they charge us for credit overloads all the time, even though music majors can have up to 21 credits. Being a music major is difficult because you have an extremely busy work load, but if you are ready to commit it's a great program.

College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have a Greek Life.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: A lot of people can get away with a lot of stuff if they do it correctly. Campus Safety doesn't notice most of the time, which shows what a "great" job they do.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options in White Plains and Port Chester, which are really close by. Because we are in Westchester county, the restaurants can get really expensive.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: The nightlife at Manhattanville is alright. If it's the night of a party you can find some stuff to do, but on a normal night you would have to go to White Plains to find entertainment.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I could choose to do it all over, I would put my friends from Manhattanville into a different school and start all over again. The administration at Manhattanville College is a joke. The only thing that Student Accounts is good at doing is making people cry. The Office of Campus Life is constantly messing everything up including event planning and trip payments. They have lost large amounts of money for students payments with no explanation and only accusatory fingers. The Professors at Manhattanville are great and they care a lot about their students, but with an administration that sucks so much, they can only take you so far in your career before Student Accounts won't let you register because you owe $250.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Overnight visitation is strict when campus parties are occurring.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Library is a great place to study and get work done. During spring time, all student gather and sit around the Quad. Its a great place to relax on a sunny day.

4 College Junior

Facilities: many opportunities to attend and contribute to the community.

2 College Junior

Parking: Not a lot of parking spaces. Every year, depending whether the student is a commuter or resident must pay a parking fee. Recommend, to only pay the fee once and leave that sticker for all four years. Commuters:$50 Residents:$100 per year.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Average, people are very nice but its a small school not a lot of variation

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is one of the highest ranked in its diversity, but the school still consists of boring individuals.

Guys & Girls: not the best, not the worst

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: they don't really have any

4 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food on the weekends are really disappointing and you only get two meals a day on Saturday and Sunday.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Manhattanville is a college that many students usually love or hate—the first step in a college student's career, but not necessarily the last. After a few semesters, some students are not happy, nor are they doing well at Mville, and they often transfer. For their friends, it is sad to see them go, but their happiness and well-being take top priority. For some students who stay, they end up loving the atmosphere, the people, and, of course, the Castle. Not many schools have castles, and that is one thing that makes Mville so unique. The students who stick it out believe that they made the right decision and are happy with their education, even if it was a slow transition. Many students find getting involved on campus to be very important to the adjustment process. By staying active, students meet students who introduce them to other students. Many students become happier and more comfortable with Manhattanville as their circle of friends grows.

There is also a good number of students who transfer to Manhattanville. These students are usually attracted to the school because of its aesthetic attributes, as well as its academic reputation. Transfer students also have a harder time adapting to the atmosphere after coming from a different institution. However, commuters have the hardest time becoming attached to the school. They go to their classes and then go home. Most of them don’t take the time to meet people, join clubs, or go to campus events. They either have no time or feel awkward because they don’t live on campus. This is disappointing to residents because commuters are just as much a part of the school and should jump right into different things. In general, most students believe that they have chosen the right school and love Mville, making the school their second home and their friends their second families.
