Overall Experience: My school is very diverse. It is small, however, each day I meet someone new.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love manhattanville so far, for all the reviews that is what you make of it. Manhattanville gives you opportunities and recourses and it is up to YOU to take advantage.

Overall Experience: I love this school! First of, Manhattanville College is absolutely beautiful. THERE'S A CASTLE! The atmosphere is welcoming and the community is so diverse. This school has so many opportunities for students academically and career wise. All the departments work together to help students achieve their goals. The fact that my classes are small allows me to have the one on one time with a professor which helps me academically. I've come to realize that the professors here have a lot of experience in their field and also have connections where internships and networking are concerned.

I would choose my school all over again due to the fact that I am having a great experience and couldn't imagine having it any other way.

Overall Experience: I haven't started school yet I move in August 21st. But honestly so far I love it everyone is so welcoming at the school. Beautiful campus.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Manhattanville College was more of a High school. They like to say there is diversity but most of the students are from spanish speaking countries and they all stick together like a clique. There are many rich snobby students and some of the female staff that speak spanish, talk s*** behind or in front of your face. It is pretty obvious because of their face, body language. The food is very repetitive, a lot of the time cold and stale. It will also have you running to the bathroom. They cheat of out of your money at financial aid and more than half of the people that came in freshman year, has or will transfer out. I have already transferred out because it just horrible. The only good thing that i liked was the professors, they make the class fun and engaging. Also if you do not have a car, you are not leaving campus. There is a bus for white plains but there is nothing to do in white plains. Bars? not 21. The financial aid team is also very unorganized and confused, they gave me a refund then told me it was a mistake and that i had to repay the money because they made an error.

Overall Experience: Before i visted manhattanville College i didn't think it was going to be a great school for me because it wasn't my first choice. I had some issues with the office of financial aide because they took forever to process my package and i was unable to get student work study. Those are just the financial aspects. When i went to my new students orientation i was completely inlove with the welcoming energy of the staff and my orientation group was really fun. My orientation leader who was a student at manhattanville told me alittle more about the school and his experience which helped me decide if i really wanted to enroll. There were so many fun activities that the school planned out for new students and we were taken into an amusement park went on rides and it was the best time of my life around a school environment.

Overall Experience: In my two complete years at Manhattanville, i've grown and matured as a person. Through new experiences, I am now better equipped to handle complex situations I may come across in the future. The classes have taught me well, and the amazing friends I've made so far have been extremely helpful to my growth.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the small classes because I find I do well

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would certainly choose Manhattanville College for my advanced education again if given the option. The school is constructed of a great (although small) student body and supported by a strong, encouraging, friendly, and accepting community within the school that is further improved by the great staff and experienced teachers.

Party Scene: If we had sororities or something similar.. just housing off campus. the parties would be much better and SAFER

Scholarships: They give you a good amount but it takes a lot to get there

Campus Food: Sometimes the caf food is great, other times it's horrible

Campus Housing: Spellman Hall aka Spelly is an alright hall. I lived in a double on the third floor for Emerging Leaders and Honors. It was spacious and in the year that I lived there I only encountered bugs in my room twice!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I dont know about this topic

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Boring parties no one attends needs more popping parties

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They are never organized and they mess up a few times on numbers

Overall Experience: If you do not play a sport or do drugs you won't fit in. People come and go here so often that if you make a friend they will likely be gone by the next year. You can't blame them. This school was a huge dissapointment for me. I'll look back on my "college years" and remember how lame it was. Living here is atrocious compared to living at home in High School. The food is awful and repetitive. I've been here two years and the food hasn't changed even a little bit. I do not know how people make it four years here without being intoxicated the whole time and addicted to drugs. Seriously this school is not worth it. If you're looking for that college experience you heard about or seen in media and movies this is not it. If I could go back in time I would have commuted to a closer school, save so much money, and be a lot happier. I've wasted two years of my life here. I should have gotten out after the first year when I had the chance. I am glad I am making the right decision now. I am happy I got to experience everything I thought I needed to living at college, but to me, I could have learned these things in a different fashion in a much more worthwhile way. At least I will never have to wonder. If you're reading my review please take heed of my warning as I came to this exact site and read reviews and still chose to come here. I made this review to save you! So please make the right choice. I hope this review has impacted at least one of you and saved your life. Good luck and if you choose to come here don't say I didn't warn you!

Overall Experience: As far as courses and professors go, it is mostly good. I've had probably 2 or 3 professors out of 20 that I considerably did not like and I am the kind of person who can see the best in people. Unfortunately in terms of getting in the class you need / want it is an awful process and good luck with that. You will have to survive the 4 years here to get a good pick on your schedule. If not in your senior year, prepare to pull out your hair. I'd only go to this school for the education, and even at that it is just average. You're better going to a bigger school with more course offerings and better schedule timings than a small school with a super strict, hard to get into classes system like this one.

Guys & Girls: This is a small school. If you hook up with anyone, everyone will know about it. There are more girls tha guys on campus which is a plus for us guys. I can't honestly say there Manhattanville has a lot of attractive people. I'd say it has the same number of attractive people to non attractive people or even less. You can't just deem a campus having attractive people or not.

Athletics: Athletic life is great for atheletes who want to play for a little known named school like Manhattanville. They offer a nice gym that is considerably far from the resident buildings and sits toward the edge of campus. Omly atheletes are allowed to use it. Non atheletes use the gym in the student center which is very lacking. Good to be an athelete if you already are one. If you have dreams of becoming one on the other hand, think again.

Greek Life: There is no greek life. They are in the works of having greek life somewhere off campus which doesn't seem like it is going anywhere as it is just not practical for such a small school to have off campus greek life. Do not come here if you are hoping for greek life. This is not the school.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing via the school is not even a fully functional thing as of 2015 of May that I am writing this. I know there are plans in the works but the availability that they are planning is so little your chances of getting it is absolutely impossible. If you try to rent an apartment on your own be prepared to take out a loan because White Plains is not an affordable location whatsoever.

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.
