3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a financial aid package, not much aid was included. I am on the hook for about 80% of the tuition costs.

I'm an excellent student, and am worthy of additional scholarship award money.

Majors: I have no knowledge on internships; my main goal as of now is just to complete what is absolutely needed for my degree.

3 College Junior

Administration: They're not consistent with their strictness, which is incredibly annoying.

Athletics: It's okay, but the basketball players are able to get away with so much more than any regular student (poor grades, write-ups, etc.) Really makes it hard to want to support them sometimes.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The only crummy part about off-campus dining is how expensive it can get. But it's MUCH better than on-campus food.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I personally prefer partying in the dorm rooms, but it's a lot of fun regardless.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are two frats and two sororities. They're not that big of a deal. One of the frats used to throw pretty cool parties, but they lost the house. Now, Greek life is basically just a few small insider clubs.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: They don't tend to accommodate long-distance students. The dorms are often dirty.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The counselors are not nearly as helpful as they could be.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This is actually pretty good at my college. Their are many security guards all around campus and not to many crimes yet. We also get notified of any crimes or anything we should be aware off.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing for what ive seen is actually pretty close to campus, about a 2-5 minute walk depending on where you live. It is somewhat safe, not so much at night, but overall a decent location to live in.

Local Area: Its an okay local area. It is better and safer in the morning then at night. It also doesn't have to many things to do unless you go down to the city.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are some sororities and fraternities on campus. Many are related to your field of study. Sororities and fraternities tend to throw bake sales and things of that nature as fundraisers.

Athletics: Our school has many teams - Division I and Intramural. School spirit is most seen during the Men's Basketball Games in our home court. Intramural teams are a great way for students to play the sports that they love without having a big commitment to practices. For example, there's usually one to two games a week, depending on the sport and season, and games are for about an hour.

Administration: If you are failing a class or doing poorly, your professor notifies either your assistant dean or the dean of your school. You can be put on academic probation or have to go to the center of academic success for tutoring.

Campus Housing: Living on campus allows students to meet people on their floor, in their building or in other buildings. The dorms have social events in which students can come out and have a good time, plus get free food. The cost of housing is pretty expensive but it is included in your tuition bill. Within the dorms there are game rooms, vending machines and free washing and drying machines. The dorms/ college is in a very convenient area as there are many restaurants and stores in which students can go to. The housing process happens over the course of approximately two days as student's lottery numbers are called.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Many students host their own parties or get-togethers whether on campus or off. They typically go to Fenwicks, Cannons, or sports houses. Parties give students the opportunity to meet fellow students and a chance to relax and enjoy their freedom.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There's an apartment style housing selection governed by residence life which is typically for juniors and seniors. Street parking is very difficult to find, however, the school does have a parking garage no more than two blocks away. The parking garage is somewhat pricey. Other students have chosen to get their own apartments a few blocks away from the school that are not governed by the school. Postings tend to show up on posts around the neighborhood and within school buildings on campus.

Academics: Engineering is hard but the professors make it easier.

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.
