    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.

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.
