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

Know what you want in a college, sit in on classes and ask the students about the professors. Pick a school that has your major or a varity of majors tha you are interested. Never take an 8 am class. Have fun, but don't annoy your roommate. Always keep your syllabus if you plan on tranfering schools. and always ask questions.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is conservitive who doesn't appreciate the fine arts.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Perhaps the way everyone seems to be lost souls. No one really seems to know who they are and what they want to do.

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

Finding the right college is an important and personal decision that may become a little stressful if you do not ask the right people for help. Although this is your final decision, having a good support system through your parents and school concilors will make this experience more enjoyable and efficient. Here is my advice for finding the right college and making the most out of the college experience. First, identify your priorities as a student. Some prorities to consider would be location, academic programs, cost, and diversity. Second, begin researching and visiting a wide variety of institutions to see what campus style fits the student best. Finally, match the goals and priorities of the student with the different institutional characteristics to further narrow down your search. My last bit of advice would be to keep in mind that no matter what University you choose, college can and will get tough. Choose an institution where you feel the faculty and staff are most qualified to help assist in your many transitions through out your college experience.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Before attending my freshmen year at Marymount, I wish I would have known more about scholarship opportunities that I could have applied for in high school.

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

I say wait. Prior to coming to Marymount Manhattan College, which I am more than happy with, I attended a community college. Tidewater Community College, VA was a lot of things for me at 18, but most of all it was a place where I could figure out my wants in an educational environment. After residing there for a little less than 2 years I was on a well educated search to find the college or univesity that best contrbiuted to me needs. I believe the best way to make the most of your college experience is to enjoy it. Enjoy where you go to school and enjoy your major. One has to spend 4 years there, why not be happy with your extended time rather than live in self doubt on what could have been? I ended up at MMC and am in my Junior year persueing my degree in Theatre studies, which was a long way from my want of an associates degree in a small town in Virginia Beach, VA. I say follow your dreams.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I believe any one who has a strong desire to craft their field in their specific art would enjoy their experience at Marymount Manhattan College. Art is something quite complex when it comes to its training, but for the individual who wants to persue their dreams and has the talent to back it up, MMC is phenominal. Also, the New York City doesn't hurt when expanding your horizons.

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

Find a place that has the program for you that's in the type of area you want to be in. If you dream of being in the city, get more familiar with being there. It can be really daunting how big it can be. If you want to go to more of a campus school, find out what the area has to offer (other than getting wasted). Boredom and lonliness can be your worst enemy when you go off to college. Get involved, even if it means not coming home one weekend to see your boyfriend/girlfriend. It's the only way you'll meet people with similar interests. You are only going to have so much in common with your freshman roommate(s). Ttry to get everything you can out of your school. That doesn't have to mean study all the time, or become a book worm. Just get involved in what your school has to offer, build up as many skills as you can. It will shape who you become for the better.

What's unique about your campus?

The small classes. It helps to become friendly with your teachers so you can get as much out of your classes as possible. Making enemies with anyone is just foolish here.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had been more familiar with the city. It can be overwhelming. Also, I wish someone told me to try to participate more.

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

Do not choose a school based solely on what other people say about it. Make sure you visit it and experience it yourself.

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

The only unique thing about Marymount is that it is a breeding ground for gay men, and a great place to find other gay men. As far as academics go, do NOT come here if you are looking for an actual career one day...

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

I encourage parents to get as involved in picking a school as possible. I had no help from my parents, which is one of the reasons why I feel like I am so unhappy at the school I chose now.

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

To students: Visit the school. No matter how much research you do about the school, you will never know if it's the right college unless you visit. Can you see yourself there? If you can't, don't pick it. But if you can see yourself walking down the halls with new friends, standing on line for lunch, sitting in the classrooms, or lounging in the library... it's usually the school for you. Also, try to sit in on a class. This is so important. To parents: Listen to your child. It's their new life they're choosing. Ultimately, you have the final say. But really consider what they tell you. Otherwise they could be unhappy for the next four years of their life and who wants that? A final note to students: There is no such thing as the "right" college. You may come close, but you will never love everything about your school. But if you find you hate your college, give it at least a semester before considering to transfer. You never know. Myabe you'll find something that'll convince you to stay. Best of luck.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known just how stressful the combination of living in Manhattan and going to school here too is. But I still would have come to MMC.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Artsy, liberal, independent people. This school focuses mainly on the arts. Academics are not ignored, but students with "real" majors don't have as many choices as students in the art divisions. Also, you need to really like Manhattan and be able to navigate well. It's essential to be independent, able to manage money and time, and that you can balance your school work with all the greatness of living in NYC.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates that are left at the school being senior, are enthusiastic, involved, and career driven. Freshman year before everyone transferred, there were a lot of lost people.

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

There are so many different college experiences out there. I think that high schools and people get so involved in finding a good and affordable school they sometimes don't pay enough attention to what kind of school would the student do best in? Not what kind of school will I fit in at? What kind of schol will I have fun at? Because at the end of the day you pay a lot for your degree and the good times you have at school won't matter when you're still on the job hunt a year after graduation, so find a school that offers programs you think you can excel in, schools with a big networking system, etc.

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

People at my school are really uninvolved because between the city and our school they always choose the city, and then they complain that there's not enough involvement at school. In other words their's not enough of a sense of community.

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

Let your child decide where they think they'd fit in best. The name of the school is not as important as you think it is, the quality of education and the selection of professors available is what you should consider the most important as part of a quality education.

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

The quality of dormitory and the lack of ammenities. Students at my dorm pay the same price as others in other dorm and are not supplied with cable, gym access or quality internet service.
