I love LIM College! The campus is located in the city, which gives you even more reason to explore the fun and vibrant city. The students are generally really nice and friendly. So far, all the professors I’ve had are really nice & truly care about the students, making sure we all succeed. The professors know what they’re teaching due to real experience in the subject fields. Student life isn’t the best, as there are some events that are a little cheesy, but they do make sure to be very inclusive through their clubs made to represent the underrepresented.
It's NYC, so of course there’s a great party scene.
Dorms are not in the best condition at all, but it's a great way to meet new people if you're not from the city.
Overall, I would say that LIM is a great college to go, as it puts you at an advantage when coming out of college, as it leaves you more prepared for the real world and with a higher chance of finding a job soon after college.

The school overall is great! The academic and professors are awesome. I really like the curriculums for the online segment. However, the main office, especially student financial services are TERRIBLE! They are incompetent, unorganized, and unreasonable. They have made so many mistakes during my attendance of this school that I am considering transferring! Beware of the main office of this school! Stay on top of them and always stay up to date with them because they will mess you over!!
I just recently transferred to LIM and every interaction I have had with staff and students has been great! LIM is a much smaller school compared to other Manhattan colleges, with around 1500 students. This ensures you get the most attention from your professors because class sizes are kept small. The internship opportunities are amazing and will benefit students on their educational journey.
