Overall Experience: Manhattan College may not have the prestige of an NYU, but it is definitely a great college. The school is rising in ranks, and the kids attending starting to become the top kids at their high schools. One of the only gripes I have with the school is the facilities. Some of them, such as the Engineering building, has to be upgraded

Overall Experience: The professors really care about my success, connecting with the professors have brought forth lots of opportunities for me. They're tough when it comes to learning, but very supportive, inspirational, and positive at the same time.

Overall Experience: 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.

Overall Experience: The alumni network is very good.

Campus Housing: The dorms are typical dorms from a few decades ago.

Greek Life: Greeks don't have there own housing.

Athletics: The sports facilities are adequate for an urban college.

Overall Experience: The administrators have gone above and beyond what I expected to help me resolve any issues or problems I have had.

Athletics: Our basketball team is one of the best in the tri state

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Manhattan college is the best option, just a little overpriced

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The career center regularly emails and posts available jobs/interships on the school website, which helps with the job searching as you have somewhere to begin. The center is also open to review student resumes and cover letters. They also offer mock interviews and rent out interview suits. There are a number of career fairs and panels held often for the students to meet prospect employers.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: In general I feel safe while on campus. There are emergency calling boxes (not sure what they are called) in different sections of the school just in case anything happens. I.Ds are required while entering some of the school buildings like the library and dorms. Also security guards are often seen around the school campus. It is also very easy to report any problem including lost property to the security office. The security office will normally notify the school students and staff immediately of any crime or loss. A kind person once found my card and took it the security office who emailed me immediately.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I only dormed for one year and my experience was not great but okay. I lived in a suite and we were required to clean our own bathrooms while the school provided cleaning services for the dorms with public bathrooms ( I think it was one bathroom per floor). I didn't mind this at all because I like a little more privacy and I like cleaning :)

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't hear about Greek life often but I know from some classmates that they are very selective and you are required to do some quite difficult challenges to join - that's for the guys, I'm not sure about the girls.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: 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.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Because I commute, I am not involved in a lot of sports events that take place but I often see sports teams like soccer, baseball and softball practicing in the field on my way to and from classes. The most popular sport by far is basketball as a lot of students are involved and up to date with the performances. Also a new gymnasium was opened last semester and a lot of my friends who dorm make use of it. There are also yoga events in the evenings for those interested.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All of the professors I have had so far have been good. They're very approachable and willing to help.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The perks of going to school in New York City make it easier to create connections.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus and I am usually not concerned when I am walking alone. I think they should offer better sexual assault services, though.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Lee Hall is the best option when it comes to housing, although it isn't as homey as Horan.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are only a few sororities and fraternities, making them rather low key.

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.
