3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security on campus and around in the dorm buildings are decent. I feel safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience at Marymount so far have been great. The courses and professors are very interested in learning from and teaching their students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you are in the Performing Arts majors or minors it is a great place to receive a degree. Marymount is known for their theatre training

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is very average for freshmen.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far my experience has been great! Although the school itself is very expensive being that its a private school on the Upper East Side, I love the environment, the people, and the talent.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Student to teacher ratio is great. It's easy to get along with professors. They are very knowledgeable about their respective subjects.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The internships are amazing here! One of the main reasons I chose this school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel like going to the open house and introducing myself definitely helped with the admission decision. the school is very small so they do really care about you.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Little drug usage. Policy is enforced heavily and not tolerated.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is a dry campus, so there is no nightlife on campus. It is hard to integrate into other college scenes unless you know someone. If you plan on partying it is necessary to have a fake ID in order to access the "party scene" of NYC. Public transportation makes it very easy.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is no party scene at this school, and if this is important, you will severely lack in this area. Most nightlife occurs outside of the school and is difficult to access.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is highly accepting of the gay, lesbian, LGBTQ community; the school largely fits into this category, making it not so much a minority. Political beliefs seem to majorly be liberal. Little diversity, most students make up stereotypical minorities, making them the majority at this school.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Workload is extremely easy. Registration process is smooth for the most part, but can be frustrating. Professors are not notable in their fields and are mostly part-time. The performing arts are the most popular study areas. Many opportunities are available for performing arts students.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus, security is not the most secure though. Campus housing is more secure than the classroom buildings.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are adjunct and not distinguished in their respective fields. Courses are extremely easy and hardly challenging. Most academic focus is on the performing arts sector, other fields are considered minorities. Class sizes are small, which is nice. There are a wide variety of courses, however many don't seem relevant.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is in a good location for prospective internships/jobs, however the school's action in this is unclear.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Amenities, such as the "gym", are minimal and not updated. The social atmosphere is cliquey and sanctioned. Cost is incredibly high and most rooms are not worth the price, unless the view is factored in, which most rooms lack. Incredibly strict rules to abide by.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, this school is meant for a very specific type of person. I wouldn't choose this school again due to its lack of diversity and opportunity. Unless you fit into a specific mold, which makes this the dream school, the experience here is very unsatisfying. Although the school preaches diversity, it promotes one area over all others, theatre and performing arts.

Academics: The academics at Marymount Manhattan College are amazing. You can a combination of any major or minors you want at this school. They encourage you to study multiple things and I think this is amazing. For example, I am a BA Theatre Arts major with a concentration in Directing with a double minor in Psychology and Sociology. The opportunities at this school are endless.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Marymount Manhattan College has security on the main campus and at the dorms. This makes me feel safe around campus. This school is safe and that is thanks to the security.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am currently a BA Theatre Arts major with a concentration in Directing at Marymount Manhattan College. The Theatre Arts alumni at this school are currently working on Broadway and all over television. This shows that a degree at this school is worth it and that alumni have been successful in their respected fields.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live in the dorms at Marymount Manhattan College. I live in my own place. Although I do not live in the dorms, I am at the 55th street dorms enough to give them a review. I have friends that live at the 55th street dorms and I hang out in their dorms sometimes. I have not been to the Cooper Sqaure dorms before. I enjoy the 55th street dorms and think there is a great social community at them.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoyed my classes and the professors I had for this past semester. I found my classes challenging and thought provoking. Really what I enjoy about the school are the small class sizes and opportunities for personal attention. The tuition and housing is far too much money which is why I had to settle for commuting to cut the overall cost down. The dorms are about 20 blocks from the school. The school grant they gave me was horrible and my financial aid was not anywhere near enough to take the cost weight off of me. I wish the school had more clubs available for students to really socialize and get together. Sports teams would've been a plus. There's no racial diversity amongst the students body and the school is almost like an all girls school. Most of the attention is given to the performing arts majors. I wouldn't choose Marymount to attend if I could go back in time. It was my safety school and last option.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students come to Marymount for the opportunities it holds. People who come to campus long to live in New York City, love the arts (acting, dance, design), and dream big. These are the people who make up the majority of MMC's student body. Overall, the experience students gain from Marymount and New York is priceless and one they will not soon forget. Students leave with a strong sense of self, a close circle of friends, a well-rounded education, and a very realistic outlook on life and their career. By living in the city, students are forced to grow up and be mature. They cannot hide away from the "real world" on campus because the real world is their campus.  

The college experience at Marymount is not traditional in any sense, but it is life-changing, and if that is what you are looking for, then it will end up being much more valuable than the typical state school experience. At Marymount, you are more than just a student; you are a real person who gets treated like an adult, which, for most students at MMC, is perfect. Though it can be very stressful at times, the four years spent at Marymount will seem to have a special sparkle and magic to them that you will not find anywhere else.
