3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The dining is alright but we don't get discounts anywhere and we have one deli that works with our meal plan and the service is terrible. More options wouldn't hurt.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Marymount is extremely strict on their drug and alcohol policy… it's just that the students are smarter than that.

College Freshman

Parking: Students don't really use parking, it's more aimed toward the staff.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computers on campus have never been problem. There is always one readily available and the wifi is always working.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The Dance department at Marymount is one of the best. Sometimes I get frustrated with the discipline itself but the classes have always been superb and the instructors are all extremely well-rounded and limitlessly experienced.

Majors: The audition for the program is a barre, modern combination, cuts, and finally solos. The process was very easy going and friendly. The efficiency was matched only by the careful attention to detail when it came to selecting who the faculty saw fit to be in the program.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity at Marymount is unlike any other college campus. Benefitting from the fact that it is located in NYC the college has one the most diverse college campuses I have ever experienced.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic department is the dance department and their facilities are gorgeous. They have many different rooms and almost all of them have marly flooring.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather can be nice but remember that the school year coincides with most of winter and almost none of summer so bundle up.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms as well as the school are nice however the policies instilled for obedience are over the top an can become quite irritating very often

3 College Freshman

Transportation: School is a good 16 block walk away from the dorms so transportation is really quite simple…walk. If you are ever late there is always a taxi but after a few rides that becomes extremely expensive.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The nightlife surrounding Marymount is quite abundant so long as you know where to go and who to go with. This is New York City after all so it's all about the people you know.

3 College Junior

Weather: depends on the season, but the winters can get very cold

Athletics: Um there is no athletic's on campus. but you could always play some stuff at central park.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: No Greek life, this is an liberal arts school that mostly focuses on the arts, if you want a Greek school go to Rutgers.

Scholarships: What scholarships? MMC has the worst finical aid because it's such a small school and it's private on top of that so the government doesn't fund it. I had to commute because the dorm was too expensive and the finical aid people did not care that i couldn't pay the money. so my advice to you is that, don't even bother dorming, just get an apartment it's much damn cheaper anyways.

Off-Campus Housing: the thing is that MMC doesn't really have off campus housing, you actually have to find a place for yourself. But hey that's what craigslist is for.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: If your 21, nightlife should be really fun because you can go clubbing and bar hopping with some good friends. However, if you are NOT 21 hence a underclassmen unless you know some bouncers or have friends that go to other college's welp there's really nothing "fun" to do. I mean you can go watch shows and go to private parties but those are usually word to mouth so if you don't have that one friend that knows about every party? then you ain't going nowhere. DO NOT rely on NYU because i'm pretty sure you actually have to know someone there. I've been to a Columbia party but my cousin goes there so she invited me to one. you could always go to a hookah bar but those are expensive in the city. i know this sounds negative but i'm just being honest. There are some NYU bars you could try cause they don't card like that it depends on the night i guess and you can make connections and hence go to a party there :) so again it all depends.

Campus Housing: So the Dorm's are VERY freakin expensive and i found that living in a apartment or renting a room is way cheaper then living on campus. Living on campus it's self was Okay, I don't think i would really do it again because the strictness was very annoying and i felt like i was a freshmen when i most certainly was not! anyways if your family don't make bread, and you don't want to be 100,00o in debt then i suggest that you rent an apartment or a room.

5 College Junior

Majors: Well MMC is very well known for their theater program and it's very difficult getting in to begin with. You really grow as a performer that by the time you graduate you will be ready for Broadway or at least you will think you will be.

5 College Junior

Majors: While applying for the school, all you have to do is make sure you also put done an audition date. once you go to the audition you will learn something very interesting about the program that may make you want to change your mind. not about going to MMC just which program you may want to pursue. Anyways i found auditing to be really fun, as they do it in a non traditional way. and everyone was very nice and helpful! i want with my mom and friend and they really supported me.

3 College Junior

Academics: Classes can be very challenging, but if you work very hard you should do fine.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Okay so since it's the city, you have a great of many options to chose from, however it's VERY pricey! so if your on a budget like me then i suggest heading to the west side to eat because you can actually get somethings for like $5 and that includes a drink.

1 College Junior

Parking: Well it's NYC people. What do you expect? its the upper east side Manhattan. There is never any parking and if you really want to park then you have to pay 15.00 bucks, so i would recommend using the subway or riding your bike.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Most students come to Marymount for the opportunities it holds. People who come to campus long to live in New York City, love the arts (acting, dance, design), and dream big. These are the people who make up the majority of MMC's student body. Overall, the experience students gain from Marymount and New York is priceless and one they will not soon forget. Students leave with a strong sense of self, a close circle of friends, a well-rounded education, and a very realistic outlook on life and their career. By living in the city, students are forced to grow up and be mature. They cannot hide away from the "real world" on campus because the real world is their campus.  

The college experience at Marymount is not traditional in any sense, but it is life-changing, and if that is what you are looking for, then it will end up being much more valuable than the typical state school experience. At Marymount, you are more than just a student; you are a real person who gets treated like an adult, which, for most students at MMC, is perfect. Though it can be very stressful at times, the four years spent at Marymount will seem to have a special sparkle and magic to them that you will not find anywhere else.
