I'm currently doing my Masters in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) at Manhattan College; about to graduate in a month! It's been a long and hard journey juggling a full time job and a tough, yet reasonable, work load from the MSOL program. Overall, I've grown a lot from the guided learning. I chose the program in which we are required to physically come to class at Manhattan College; I'm so happy I chose this path since I enjoyed the in-person learning, made great friends, and life-long connections. The class size was excellent, 12:1, it's the perfect ratio for students to engage in fulfilling discussion, and get the attention we need from the professor. I could see that the program did their best to select faculty members that come from the best of the best in their field, I genuinely learned a lot and had a great experience. It's been my privilege to attend this gorgeous campus and learn from the faculty.

The professors I have had so far are great and the courses are quite interesting! I would however appreciate more variety in terms of the course options offered in my major(chemical engineering) as one approaches junior and senior year as the focus now petroleum, which is great but not all the students are interested in joining an oil company after graduation. It is understandable though, that the choices are less because the department is quite small and intimate which is reflected with the number of professors available. I love the small class sizes because they make it easier to learn the material being taught and the professors are more accessible for office hours.

This was was one of my top schools and I am very glad I made it in. With advice from an alumni, my high school assistant principal, I'm certain I made the right choice. I especially like the smaller more intimate classroom settings offered here, with easy access to the professors. The professors all have office hours either set or by appointment and are always willing to help. Also all the disciplines have different clubs associated to them making it easy for students to join and interact with students of similar interests. There hasn't been a meal plan for commuters like myself but there is one being implemented this coming semester, which I'm excited about because it was a challenge having to pay out of pocket each time you needed to buy something on campus.
