Overall Experience: For the amount of tuition they charge, the administrative offices really don't know what is going on with students, nor do they seem to care. There are so many who don't even graduate on time because of mistakes made by administration. This school is really not worth the money.

Academics: They cram 1 semester into 5 weeks! It is not effective.

Health & Safety: Anyone can drive in and say I have an appointment and drive through.

Overall Experience: This schools hires "professors" 2 days before classes begins. You experience this especially in programs such as the Jump Start Program. Some professors aren't even qualified to teach graduate level classes.

1 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: You don't need this school to help you find jobs at the lowest raked companies/schools. You can find those on your own. What they don't tell you is that unless you have connections you will be finding jobs in unsafe neighborhoods and poor performing schools. They sell the Jump Start Program by claiming that 95% of their students find jobs. They don't share with you how many actually like the jobs or how many lasted in the field or how little Manhattaville school does to support you.

Academics: The professor are different depending on the course but so far I have had some bad and some really good professors. The work is what any college student would get, there are many tutors on campus people can take advantage of.

Health & Safety: One thing I have complained about is that our health center right now sucks, we only have a doctor on campus Tuesdays and Thursdays which I find super inconvenient. There is a walk-in that the bus takes you to, and other doctors near campus which is good, but can also be expensive and a huge hassle.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The career development department is really good with helping with internships and different things off campus for you to do that partake with your major. They also have an online website that helps you find jobs on campus, in the area and different internships which is really helpful to students on campus.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: They give a lot of Financial Aid and Scholarships at this school which most students have.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: In white plains there is just about every dining option you can think of. There are good bars to eat at, but also TGI fridays, Chipotle and other good food options. Then of course you have the city right there where there is an endless about of places to go to eat.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports teams are really well known on campus and it is great to be a part of one. Everyone goes to all of the games, and most of the kids on sports teams, cheer and dance troupe, all hang out and get along really well. Its nice to know a group of people before coming onto campus.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: As of now there is not greek life on the campus, but many students are trying to get it recognized so I'm sure within the next few years it will some how make its way onto campus hopefully.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: To be honest it is mostly a bar and club school. The bar strip in white plains is awesome, there's a lot of different options and they are all fun and mostly easy to get into. Then there is the city which is full of different experiences and fun places which are always a great time. There are some parties on campus, such as 200 100 and 50 nights for the seniors they have in the castle, which are always themed and are a blast. And some of the sports teams throw parties in the suites. But there is not greek life as of now (hopefully there will be soon) so there aren't frats or anything but the bars make up for it for the most part.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the dorms on campus. All freshmen love spellman hall because you are around all of your friends and you don't have to walk between the suites like the upperclassman have to do. It's also great because the dorms are big, they have sinks in the room, closets and dressers which are nice, and also built into the wall with cabinets. The suites are super nice too because you have the option of having a single or a double in the suites style which is good for options. Founders is like spellman because its more of a dormitory living. There are also some houses on campus you can apply to live in as well.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most people wouldn't really want to live off campus because its SOO expensive. So everyone for the most part lives on campus but people are fine with that. I know some people have houses or apartments in white plains which isn't far and a lot of people like that, and others split costs of the huge houses around campus to rent, but for the most part it isn't worth it and no one really wants to anyways.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Living between White Plains and NYC is awesome. Everyone goes out to the bars and parties in white plains just about every weekend. And during the day there is always stuff to do there. We also go to the city on some weekends and go to clubs and bars down there. There are also great places to eat and ALWAYS something to do with your friends. Going off campus is always fun and there is always something great to do. Its honestly a perfect location.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are very lenient about most things which is good, if you get in trouble you don't actually get in trouble. You have to do little things like, decorate a bulletin board or write a paper which is good. But the first few weeks they are strict, but after that its fine so be careful then.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It is pretty good from my first semester

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: wish there was more options

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Manhattanville is a college that many students usually love or hate—the first step in a college student's career, but not necessarily the last. After a few semesters, some students are not happy, nor are they doing well at Mville, and they often transfer. For their friends, it is sad to see them go, but their happiness and well-being take top priority. For some students who stay, they end up loving the atmosphere, the people, and, of course, the Castle. Not many schools have castles, and that is one thing that makes Mville so unique. The students who stick it out believe that they made the right decision and are happy with their education, even if it was a slow transition. Many students find getting involved on campus to be very important to the adjustment process. By staying active, students meet students who introduce them to other students. Many students become happier and more comfortable with Manhattanville as their circle of friends grows.

There is also a good number of students who transfer to Manhattanville. These students are usually attracted to the school because of its aesthetic attributes, as well as its academic reputation. Transfer students also have a harder time adapting to the atmosphere after coming from a different institution. However, commuters have the hardest time becoming attached to the school. They go to their classes and then go home. Most of them don’t take the time to meet people, join clubs, or go to campus events. They either have no time or feel awkward because they don’t live on campus. This is disappointing to residents because commuters are just as much a part of the school and should jump right into different things. In general, most students believe that they have chosen the right school and love Mville, making the school their second home and their friends their second families.
