Student support is one of the major components for an individual's success and unfortunately City College lacked that supportive environment that encourages growth, morale, and motivation of the student community. Thankfully, my primary objective is being supported by Manhattan College, not only as a person but in my academic work, as I want to make an impact on the field of Civil Engineering and be an inspiration and mentor to other students.
I'm going into my second semester and am already looking to transfer. Every single thing has been a struggle to get an answer about. At the beginning of the year, we tried to contact financial aid. When we finally got in contact with them, we were told the wrong information and never contacted again, despite us asking for a follow up. When we went in person, it was "someone else's job" and no one would help.
After spending the first semester in person, I decided to switch to remote and stay home. It has been a constant battle to get any communication from them. I have sent multiple emails and called multiple times. It has been DAYS now and still nothing from my advisor or the registrar's office. When people DID respond, they were dismissive and ignored most of what I had said, only glossing over parts of it. We were also told that my loans would substantially be changing AFTER I had already withdrawn from housing, despite asking for all of the info beforehand.
The dorms are horrible, the food is literally rotting at times, the administration DOESN'T CARE. The only okay thing is location. Don't waste your time here, just pick a different school.
Manhattan College is a predominantly white institution which I was aware but not to the extent I'd see while being on campus. As an African American student I often felt like an outsider at that school but I did see other students like me, even if it was a small amount. Most students that are POC are commuter students whereas a small amount live on campus. Manhattan College has 10% African Americans in its demographic. Besides sometimes feeling like an outsider at the school, I did enjoy the atmosphere and the classes that I've taken. The professors for the most part are very dedicated, supportive and resourceful. They're always an email away and they hold office hours that students are aware of. The school also has a large variety of clubs and tutoring services for those that need it that I find convenient. The campus school is pretty bad if I have to be honest. They serve the same foods everyday with little change in the meals. The tuition for the college is expensive but they give a lot of financial aid for students which I really like. The dorm life is decent but RAs are very strict and if student gets into trouble by Res Life they have to pay a fine of $25 and up as a consequence. The money they get are used for foods for clubs. I disagree with how they punish students and a lot of students get into trouble for no reason because RAs enjoy giving out punishments. I almost forgot to mention but the school is marketed as a school that focuses on Liberal Arts when in reality they school is centered around Business and Engineering so there's little opportunities for Liberal Arts students. All in all, Manhattan College is a decent college but it can be a lot better. Personally I don't if I'll be at this college for all four years because I feel like it's not geared towards a student as myself but I'm trying my best to focus on the positives.
Overall, Manhattan is a good school to go to. The professors and the location are what really make the school. While it was not my first choice, I have grown to appreciate it and found ways to enjoy my time there. There are a lot of updates that need to happen around campus to help make it a better campus environment.

I honestly wish I could go back even further that Senior year, because If I could have motivated myself properly I would have convinced me, that it was never too early to work towards a college degree and the availability of community college courses and AP classes being offered should be taken great advantage of. even more importantly I would have told myself that school ultimately can never be the main source of learning and to never let it stifle creativity or get in the way of true education, to read voraciously and explore the world even in small ways and I would emphasis that the truest form of discovery and growth academically and personally comes from not being a self consumed teenager but by seeing all the problems around myself that are there to be contemplated and solved.
Classmates are for the most part friendly and eager to learn.
The professors, because they are engaging and experianced.
Accredited well diverse, and a great school for oportunities in religious volunteering.
to be honest i dont know because i havent been to other school but the only thing that comes to my head is the friends i made in that school.
Manhattan is best known for having Rudy Guiliani and James Patterson as its alumni.
The worst thing about my school would have to be arts involved clubs because there barely isnt any. There's not clubs that can show students how to dance a particular dance, or play a specific instruments except the Irish Pipes; which isn't very popular.
I had looked up all questions I had about the school before I went, so nothing was unknown when I went.
Anyone who is intereste din a small school enviorment and does not want to be lost in the crowd. Anyone who is especially, interested in gettng involved wethere it be atheltically, artistically or socially every group is so welcoming and easy to participate in.
A person looking for a large campus with a diverse social scene should not attend.
I'm certain the most frustrating aspect regarding my school is the incredible amount of stairs. Walking up and down the exceptionally steep stairs every day gets to be quite exhausting. If there were less steep stairs getting around campus would be exponentially easier and much more convenient as well as enjoyable.
The best thing about this school is it's close proximity to Manhattan, yet still retaining a safe, small, secure campus with a college feel. Other city schools stick you right on the busy streets of Manhattan. However, this school feels a little too small at times. People don't know this school when I tell them about it, but I don't care about that. The look of wonder on their faces when you tell them it's near Fordham says, "Why don't you go to Fordham then?" As long as the name of the school doesn't matter to you in accordance to friends and family, it's fine, however, the name is well known in the city. This school has an amazing English department, and, the internships you can get with Engineering and Communications are incomparable. Students mostly complain about the rooms in the Freshman dorm buildings, the food in the main cafeteria, the people who run student activities, and not getting enough flexibility with staying in their rooms during breaks.
All the professors and staff were very helpful. I feel I got a truly wonderful education there.
Our college is ranked 8th in the nation for civil engineering and 2nd in the nation for chemical engineering
I would say the student body is diverse.
