Manhattan College is a great lasallian institution that enables vigorous students to fulfill their academic careers. I highly recommend this college for their high achieving education department. The faculty in the education department are resourceful, knowledgeable, and motivational. The program sets students on track to be the best teacher in their field. Moreover, the program also allows you the opportunity of going out into the education field to gain the necessary experience needed to be an amazing teacher. Students are given the opportunity to observe and work in classrooms that focus on their concentration. Throughout my educational career at Manhattan College I have made great friendships that also contribute to my success.

I've loved my experience at MC! The professors and classes are amazing, the professors want their students to succeed and are very helpful in and out of the classroom. The learning environment in very friendly and opening. Also, the location is amazing, and provides for great experiences.
I love Manhattan College! I feel so welcomed here by all staff, faculty, students, neighboring community members, etc. This area of NYC is perfect because it offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle while still providing convenient and easy access into the city via the subway system. I am proud to tell people I attend Manhattan College. Go Jaspers!
