Students Say

This traditional Catholic college is located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, just 30 minutes north of Manhattan and all of its resources. Manhattan College's nearly 4,000 students form a tight community, and that "carries a lot of weight in its alumni and its quality of education." The library is open 24 hours, there are "many resources to help you get an internship or a job," and the proximity of a world hub nearby truly influences every aspect of life at school: "To have New York City just around the corner is such a great environment to study in, it makes you truly motivated and [exposes you] to many situations you most likely would not been exposed to at other universities throughout the country." There is a real sense that the administration "does a great job in providing its students with a great balance between social life and academics."

The professors get to know students personally, so "you aren't just another number in their class. You get the help and education you deserve and pay for." "My professors are great at helping to clarify any problems, easy to talk to, pioneers in their field, and overall just want to see me succeed," says one mechanical engineering major. The faculty is well-equipped in their subject content, and "best of all, they present it in a way that makes it interesting to the average 20-year-old." The small class sizes makes for regular discussions, and the vast swath of cultures, backgrounds, and ethnicities also means "there is always someone who can paint a picture of a different culture in every classroom."

Students Say

The "fairly diverse student body" cops to feeling more like a family, and "the vibe on campus is definitely very open and friendly." There is "a wonderful representation of commuter students who are from all areas of NYC," but the majority of students live on campus and "embrace the urban area outside of the campus." "Because of the size…you'll see people you know all the time and sometimes have time to stop and have a conversation," says one student. A fair number of athletes make up the population, and there are quite a few engineers to be found, but all mix seamless. Everyone "reaches out to or helps anyone who is struggling in classes or even personal issues," and students are "very dedicated to the school." "Once a Jasper, always a Jasper."

Overview

From The School


Location


At Manhattan College, we offer a truly unique location within the boundaries of New York City right next door to a subway stop. Unlike many other New York City schools, we have a true college campus — 22 acres centered around a quad, where students play Frisbee, study under the sun and hang out with friends. Manhattan’s professors use NYC as a classroom with field trips to Wall Street, museums and other world-famous locations.

The student body of 3,444 hails from 44 states and 40 countries. With a four-year guarantee of resident housing, 82 percent of freshmen live on campus in both traditional style dorms and suite style living. Common interest communities bring students with a particular interest under one roof to live and learn throughout the year.

Campus Facilities & Equipment


The Raymond W. Kelly (‘63) Student Commons opened in fall 2014. The 70,000-square-foot building significantly enhances the College’s ability to integrate academics and student life, and provides space for fitness and wellness programming, cultural and community events, dining, student activities, and student collaboration.

O’Malley Library is home to a number of new features and services, including more than 100 computer workstations, a round-the-clock Internet Café, a media center equipped with teleconferencing capabilities, and many group study rooms scattered throughout the five-story layout.

Both commuters and residents can take advantage of the Fitness Center and newly renovated cafeterias. There are a variety of dining options, as well as spaces to relax and study.

Off-Campus Opportunities


Students actively define their commitment toward community around the city, country and world. Each year, Campus Ministry and Social Action (CMSA) runs several L.O.V.E. programs (Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experience) giving students service experiences in areas such as New Orleans, Kenya, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic and West Virginia.

Many students also participate in local community service projects. These include Habitat for Humanity, working with the elderly in nearby nursing homes, volunteering in soup kitchens and tutoring at local schools.

Students are provided with internship opportunities in their field of study throughout the metropolitan area often networking with alumni.

Students Say

The college's size "allows you to make connections quickly and make friends easily;" the "surrounding area gives endless social possibilities" and the quad is usually full of people relaxing and hanging out. Van Cortlandt Park is right next door, and "there are many great places to eat around the neighborhood" (which is good, as "the dining options are very limited" on campus). On weekdays, most people stick to "a basic schedule of going to classes, meals, the gym, and library to study," but on the weekends the hair comes down. "Whether it's going to a sporting event, going to one of the local bars or personally going to see a Broadway show, people usually take their time off to do things off campus," says a student of the relaxed attitude at the end of the day. Manhattan (the borough) is a constant lure, so "very frequently we head to the city to explore and have fun"; discount tickets to New York sports teams given out by Student Activities are "an extremely popular activity that a lot of students partake in."
