Overall Experience: To get a degree in theater performing arts there is no better plance to go to than NYC scools, but being away just few block from a theater district, even better. Before I chose where I want to go for my education I visited many colleges and review ther classes they offer. marymount's unique approach to a students and their abilities giving me a comfort and belief that they will help me to prepare for successful theater carier.

Off-Campus Dining: I really enjoy eating off campus and although it isn't worth screaming about, its usually easy and tastes pretty good.

Administration: Its not that great, I mean people are very concerned about getting caught but its not that bad once you get around it.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not much of a partier any more because I the school kinda ruined it for me, which has its ups and downs.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I get sick of eating here sometimes and I think that speaks for itself.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living on campus because everything is easily accessible and I can make the most out of my experience. Its hard to dorm sometimes because it seems very crowded and overwhelming, but you get used to this very easily.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: We have absolutely no athletics department. The only thing we have that's close is a club soccer team that really no one participates in. There's nothing.

Off-Campus Housing: The school does not offer off-campus housing to its students, they have to find it themselves. It can be a tad bit stressful to try finding a New York City apartment without someone advising you, so most students go to websites that show what is available for them to look into. There are definitely apartments that are close to the school or transportation to the school, but it is up to the student to find them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since the campus is in New York City, it is surrounded by a multitude of dining options. They range from hole-in-the-wall restaurants to world-wide known places like Chiptole. It offers students versatility. The only problem is that a lot of these places are a little too pricey for a college student's budget to be eating at on a regular basis. It is nice in increments.

Administration: Both the dorms and school have security during all hours, so things feel very safe all the time. But this also means that there is not much leniency. Both in school and at the dorms there are some rules that are followed very strictly. For example, they handle drug and alcohol use very seriously because it is a dry campus. Also, the attendance policy is very strict because if a student misses more than two days of classes, he or she automatically fails.

Party Scene: Since Marymount is a small liberal arts school, it really has no parties.If I want to go out for a night, it's because I found something myself and it does not even regard my school. This has made me feel like my college experience is not as fun as it could have been if I went to another school. I really feel like I'm missing out on the nightlife scene because my school lacks connections.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did receive and academic scholarship from the school (which was $10,000 a year), which made going here a lot easier. Although I am immensely grateful for my scholarship, Marymount still is a lot of money. I got offered a small loan for financial aid, but it is still a process to get it. Marymount has really not done anything to help me out with figuring it out, though.

Campus Food: Although other students may disagree, I have no problem with my school's food. I think that our cafeteria offers us moderately diverse options, and it's not too expensive. We even have a starbucks on campus that takes our dining dollars- which is helpful for most college students. There are a few restaurants that take our meal plans, and for the most part they are alright. Even if the food of them is not always up to par, I am just happy I can use my dining dollars in an actual restaurant.

Campus Housing: Since I go to college in New York City, my dorm is actually set up like an apartment. It offers the students bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen to each room. Additionally, on the lower levels of our 32 floor dorm (which is, in fact, named the highest dorm in the country), there is a fitness center, lounges, and even a convenience store. All of these aspects make living in campus housing very comfortable. I truly couldn't imagine being in any other type of space for my first year in the city. The dorm is a twenty minute walk from the school, but there is nothing wrong with that because it allows me to take a small detour of the city. I truly have wonderful living conditions through my school.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: We don't have sports at Marymount. We have a soccer "team" that competes with the New School, but it's kind of lame.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From what I've heard, off-campus apartments are much cheaper and don't have any annoying RA rules.

Off-Campus Dining: Whole Foods is near the dorms, but it's expensive. There are a lot of Duane Reades on the commute to school. There is a Trader Joe's on the Upper West Side and in Union Square, but it's not walking distance.

Administration: Very strict penalties for underage drinking and drug use. Sometimes innocent roommates have gotten in trouble even after telling their roommates not to bring paraphernalia into the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Their "presidential scholarship" is not that much money. As students attending college in one of the richest areas in one of the most expensive cities to live in, it's frustrating that the school doesn't award much financial aid.

Also, most of the scholarship money will go to students who aren't in Theatre or Communications, since those programs are lacking.

Party Scene: It is very difficult to party here. The RA's and the rules are very strict. Many people party in the dorms but need to be super careful, but most go out. It's especially hard in the winter, because most of the time it isn't guaranteed that bars will let students in. That's when it's most frustrating.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: As someone who shops at Trader Joe's and occasionally Whole Foods, it isn't the best quality food. The workers are not great, and have to ask you 3-4 times what your order was. There is basically the same thing every day minus the hot lunch, which is usually doused in oil and salt.

Though there are many naturally made bars, all the real food basically stinks. Also, the only other two places that take our meal plan are two really crappy diners where the service is bad and the food is very disgusting.

Also, the food is TOO MUCH MONEY!

Campus Housing: Considering the freshman dorm is 16 blocks from the building and the new Cooper Square residence hall isn't even walking distance, it's a hassle. There are many means of transportation, but it is hard to get involved when you're so far away from the school.

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.
