Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best known for our dance and theatre programs however our International Relations and Political Science programs are exceptional. We have accessibility that exceeds most students in the country with frequent trips to the United Nations, international NGOs, organizations like Amnesty International and we frequently get to meet with experts in our fields. The professors on staff for these majors are some of the best in the field and are becoming world renowned with their publications. The internship opportunities are incredible and can start your career in a place that exceeds even Ivy League Universities.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Look at all aspects of a college inclusive of the location and how that will impact their experience because it will impact their performance as a student along with the opportunities they will have.

I would not recoment this school first off, next I would say that you should try and get as much as a real college experance as you can, dorms, campus, sports or activities other then classes to do. Make sure its a good school and a well rounded one, Marymount is not.

It is the kind of institution that individual drive and ambition make the most successful students. There is a lot of flexibility so I was able to do double major, minor, do two full time internships and study abroad. I got the best that Marymount has to offer because I took the iniciative to do so. Not everyone my age has that kind of focus, I understand, but for me Marymount was the best place I could have gone. I wanted a liberal arts education in New York City without feeling like a number.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

There is a lot of expectation in the U.S to get into the "right" school immediately after high school. Every year the competition gets greater, the tuition gets hirer and the stress level extreme. Essentially, not everyone is ready to go to college after their senior year and I have found those students who are pressured into going to school are often the most unsuccessful because they have not found their individuality or their own voice. The name of your school won't make a student achieve greater things. I advise to meticulously investigate many schools. Parents, listen to your kids even if you don't agree with their choices,. Students be honest with yourself and your parents. If you are not ready to go to college, or are uncomfortable with the places your parents want you to go, that voice needs to be heard. You've been waiting a long time to be treated like an adult so now you are being asked to act like one, which involves honesty, realism and logic. The US has some of the greatest instutitions of learning but they are only useful when you are ready and know how to utilize them.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

I can tell many of these questions are intended to ascertain information about the school's campus, and Marymount Manhattan College really does not have a campus or any cohesive community. Most students live off-campus and work off-campus. It is a small school, located in NYC, so as you might expect, the students are very much New Yorkers first, and students second. Apart from this, the small and intimate class setting made it very easy to have one-on-one time with professors and advisors.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do not choose your major right away unless you are absolutely positive what you'd like to study; otherwise you'll probably change your major and have to start rebuilding your transcript from scratch. Take as many of the general requirements as you can early on, so that later in your college career you will have time-slots and credits to play around with, incase you want to develop a minor or something like that. Do not just take whatever advisor your school selects for you, always find a faculty advisor whose interest reflects your own, and who might also be interested in developing an independent study course with you. A strong relationship with your faculty advisor is really the best shot you have at getting something meaningful out of school; they will help you secure your footing in whatever field you intend to embark in. Know that most friendships tend to be transient, so bare this in mind when dividing your social time and your school work: you will always have another chance to have a fun night out with friends, but your GPA isn't easy to change, and you only get one shot at your exams/essays.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

It's especially difficult to answer this question because there are many things that seem tied, in my view, as the worst things about the school. There was not much critical rigor in the coursework, most teachers weren't particularly helpful, and my peers were generally blonde, arrogant girls from New Jersey, who spent class time texting, and their free time on facebook in the library. I was an English major, and we tried to generate interest in a literary club, which was difficult, because most of the students pretended their favorite book was The Da Vinci Code.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Parents: Allow your child to discover what they want to do, this is the time to let your child grow and become a working member of society, more importantly, your child is going to go through a time period of experimentation. During this time they will be exploring values, belief systems, knowledge, and life itself, be there to share in their joy as they discover who they are. Students: This is your time, go out into the world. It is your decision about which college to go to, no one else's, it's your education. Now is the time in which you will start to figure yourself out in ways you didn't know before. Do NOT be afraid of the changes and paths ahead, as they will define who you are as an individual, and as a member of society. You have been blessed with a gift, they gift of pursuing knowledge, go and use it.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who are conservative, this is a very liberal school and almost all the students here are liberal and open minded. People who refuse to open their minds to learn something new

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

For the student, I feel it is important to focus on being both selfish and realistic. You must clearly identify what it is that you are seeking not only in your education or career, but in your life at this point in time. This affects location, degree, timing, and a plethora of other variables that only you as a student and individual can decide for yourself. Also, you must be able to rationally view the cost of the school and the toll that will take on you and your family. Also, keeping a realistic understanding of your own independence. Some students are capable of paying their own rent, doing their own laundry, and cooking their own dinners until they come home for the holidays. Others are not. This is something important to dwell upon when considering the location, campus life, and class size of the college, among other defining qualities. I think parents should ensure that the students are keeping these two aspects keenly in sight while remaining supportive and honest themselves with these two aspects. It is easy to get caught up in ideals and wants, but they often hide the wise insight into the future we all have.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There are not enough scholarship opportunities available for students that show potential, drive, and work ethic.... not for those unable to receive enough financial aid... but who can't make ends meet even though they work.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you talk to EVERYONE involved with the major you intend on. Get to know everyone and ask every question, regardless of how dumb it may seem: you'll be glad you asked later on. You want to make sure you really can picture yourself at the college and that the school really offers what you want out of a college. Don't settle for anything less than what you want, even small stuff because usually, the small stuff ends up not being small.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag mostly about how small the classes are, how your professors are on a first name basus with you, and how close-knit the college itself is.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Due to the large number of theater and dance students, not a lot of emphasis is put on other academic areas.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure your child has some idea of what they want in an enviornment and career before choosing. Too many people I know had no declared major and wasted time and money jumping from major to major. Also make sure they have opportunities to get real life experience at jobs relating to their fields before they have finished their degree.
