    It is good,the professor is funny, always make it fun when I am in class. The campus is safe.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 experiencesI have had a great experience at Manhattan College. The only thing that needs to change is how expensive it is,especially if you live on campus and have to pay one price for room and board when you could eat cheaper on your own. There are no food plan options, everyone pays 15010.00 a year for your spot in a dorm and food, even if you don't eat there.

    I completed my master's degree at Manhattan College recently. My experience there was everything I wanted and more. Faculty and staff are very warm and kind, the students are very helpful and nice to one another and everyone works together very well. I've had professors that went above and beyond for their students, including helping us tackle challenging homework assignments late nights during the week. Everyone here has positive outlooks and really cares about each other's success, and I felt so happy and comfortable while I was here. I went to a very large school for my undergrad degree and wish I had just gone to Manhattan as class sizes are much smaller and the learning is much better. VERY highly recommend... this place became a second home to me.
    Manhattan College is a phenomenal school which has a place for everybody. The values and morals at this college is something that all students can relate to. The majors and education provided at this college is also very well reviewed. Professors here love their work and actually care about their students. Community is a big part of this campus as well, which gives students many opportunities to attend social events and be a part of campus life. What I love most about Manhattan College is that they really prepare you for your career. Through internships, meetings, and interviews, I have the utmost confidence that I will be in a good foundation for a career job once I graduate.
