What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very good college academically, not much funding for extracurricular activities. I love the college because I'm a commuter, but I don't think I would live on this college campus. The area is gorgeous, with lots of good places to eat, to hang out. Very convenient for people who love the city due to the accessibility of the 1 train.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Teachers are always willing to help. The classes are 20 or fewer which is great because teachers get to know there students better. There are many activities students can become involved in. There is always help accessible to students who want it. It is a great community to be apart of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is a small school with much going for it. It is located very near New York City but feels like its suburban. There is something going on every week on campus. There is always the opportunity to go into New York City to enjoy what the city has to offer. The class sizes are small. The professors are very helpful outside of class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My evaluation posting here is based on my visits at the school and conversations I have had with the students and teachers there. From what I have seen and heard, Manhattan College is my top choice of colleges I would like to attend. Their campus is a comfortable size with a nice green square where students meet and talk. Their cathedral is big for a college campus and is quite beautiful. You can tell that they put money into their infrastructure such as the modern extension built onto their library and their student commons building. Their campus is a jewel in Riverdale, NY.

I'm a freshman and am confident I made the right choice, from the location, class sizes and curriculum. Everyone is very friendly and the professors are more than accommodating and available. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. I also have to mention the food!! It's top quality! ;-)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here and definitely stand by my decision to attend Manhattan College. I am not much of a party person, but I love the fact that I don't have to be. As long as you're not looking for a party, you aren't inclined to attend one. I am also a big fan of my academic experience so far, and my experience with the mentor program has probably been my favorite part as of yet. I love that I have that security of someone who can help me get a job in the future and teach me everything I need to know in order to get that job after (or before) I graduate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Contrary to a large number of fake reviews posted on here, I would like to share a more truthful perspective of Manhattan College. Academics: Eh. Some of the professors are good, but a majority don't seem to love their job; I can't blame them. For the most part, students are only looking to get a degree. There is a strong lack of academic curiosity and therefore the school is a toxic environment for those who are actually passionate about their studies. For example, one of my classes this year is highly discussion based, yet I've only heard 20% or so speak up. I've also noticed that you never hear people excited (or even interested) in doing work, only their complaints. Facilities: With the exception of the Library, Lee Hall, and Kelly Commons (which is almost never used for anything productive) the facilities are outdated, uninteresting, and all around cheap. For example, the elevators in Horan Hall have been broken for over a year - it takes several tries for the doors to close. De La Salle recently received a first-floor renovation. This includes a large TV at the door that intends to show prospective students how advanced the school is. Unfortunately, other floors are still cavernous and have not been updated in years. Campus: Not bad. There is a quad, which the school loves to advertise, but it isn't properly utilized. It seems the school spends a vast majority of its budget mowing the lawn; just a couple days ago they replaced the grass for no apparent reason. Extracurriculars: A joke. The clubs are advertised during the club fair, people sign up, but after that nobody goes. The clubs that do exist aren't doing anything exceptional. Overall: I can't wait to transfer. PS: My review is based on experiences I've had as a resident student far from home. If it is your goal to simply get your degree and commute, this might not be a bad option. You will get a much better education elsewhere, but different strokes for different folks. PPS: I'm confident the alumni network here is pretty much useless and top companies don't recruit here - instead, they're at Fordham, NYU, Columbia, etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Manhattan College has a very good engineering school. The school food is okay, but it could definitely be better. Some of the buildings are a lot older than others but its overall experience is great. I would recommend people to go to this school, but don't let them take away your credits if you are transferring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Manhattan College is a great school. It is filled with students who are eager to learn but also know how to have a good time. The professors are great from teaching in the class or one-on-one, or providing insightful feedback. I'm glad I go here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Manhattan College proved itself far beyond my expectations in the way it became a familial, faith-based, and rigorous yet communal arena for my studies. The LaSallian tradition has been enveloping the campus in numerous ways — the morals and standards to which the student body is held reflect the importance of education, the emphasis on the dignity of the human person, and not only the tolerance but the celebration of various faith backgrounds of students, professors, and faculty. The administration at Manhattan College was always helpful and congenial. I knew the President of the college, as he was known to stop and talk to students on the quad (and as an added bonus, he always remembered our names). One of the most notable qualities of the professors at Manhattan College is their availability outside of the classroom and the relationship they value to establish with their students and fellow faculty members. Of the students, it is within the realm of expectation that they readily and eagerly invite new students to join their community. The students at Manhattan College understand the balance between maintaining good academic standing and serving their community and making time to involve themselves in other activities, internships, and athletics that interest them. Surely any institution run by human beings is bound to be imperfect. Manhattan College is imperfect. However, it is redeemed continually by students' initiatives and care in improving the campus' facilities, academic programs, extra curriculars, and campus standards for morals and rules. A good friend with whom I attended Manhattan College once said "When you love something or someone, it means you hold it or them accountable." I have myself held my college accountable, as many of peers have done, and the college has always received the opinions and suggestions of its students well. So that it continues to grow as an institution that exceeds expectations, Manhattan College always calls upon the voice of the student. Manhattan College cares about all who step on the campus, and all who step on campus show care for those beyond it.
