5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm not sure if I simply was dealt a good hand when it came to roommates, professors, and housing, or if I made the most of my experience; but I am in love with my school. I am so happy I chose Manhattan College. Having small classes has helped me feel like I am already working in my industry. I see my professors as mentors and employers. I have had the chance to live in New York City and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I feel as if I am so much more responsible and ready to take on the real world. Having the opportunity to intern in Manhattan during the year really helps get a foot in the door. When it comes to my social life, I can enjoy a comedy show or live music in a jazz bar. My options are limitless and the city is my playground. I think my college experience went above and beyond what most people (including myself) would expect from a small school in the Bronx.

Overall Experience: Manhattan College is small and personable. It encourages and fosters relationships between students and faculty. If I could, I would most likely attend a school with a better developed computer science program. Manhattan has been great, but it is still establishing its computer science program and a lot of what I know has been self-taught.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have made so many great friends! I wish that my school had a theater major and had more theater/music opportunities, but I'm working hard to make that possible. Some people are very close minded. It is very catholic, but most don't attend church. I really like the teachers and easily found a job that I love and make enough money to live by!

Party Scene: There are parties happening all around.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Best deli is within a 5 minute walking distance and has great food.

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's very easy to have a visitor last minute.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food at Locke's is either decent or just bad.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus at manhattan College is great, but the food is a bit to be desired. The dorms are spacious enough and everyone is very friendly.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live in school-run apartments when they want to get off the main campus

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: You absolutely need a fake ID. Parties are rare and get busted pretty easily. Manhattan College is 100% a bar school.

Off-Campus Dining: Best deli really is the best.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The visitation in dorms is ridiculous. After 12, you can't swipe into another building that isn't yours. It definitely makes things a hassle.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school is very expensive without a scholarship. Most people go here because they got a significant scholarship.

Campus Food: Lockes is the dining hall. It's usually bad. The hot-food choices can be pretty gross. The worst is when you go at an off time and there is no hot food and everyone has already attacked the salad bar and cereal.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I loved the suite-style way of living, but I wish people in Horan and East Hill talked to everyone on the floors I can't wait until I'm an upperclassmen so I can live in the off-campus apartments.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: i do not know much about off-campus housing but i will be searching soon.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Japer dollars helps out a lot and most places accepts jasper dollars. the cost is fair enough and we get some student discounts.

3 College Freshman

Administration: this is a strict school but safety plays a huge role and they inform it so that there is no problems occurring. it limits the fun and sometimes feel uncomfortable

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is not always good but it gets the job done. Having an unlimited meal swipe is the best option. Jasper dollars are excellent because i like to eat at the best deli so i love to buy chicken wings there.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is convenient for waking up and going yo your class and a short period of time compare to commuters. I am in a 10 man suite and its pretty cool. Keeping my room clean is not a problem. Horan Hall is the best dorm i believe but after your freshman year. Socially is not that great but the Jaspers dorm are. it is expensive but it is worth forming instead of community.

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.
