A gem! with top-notch professors/faculty on par with any Ivy League. The array of majors--traditional and not-so-traditional--is impressive. The campus is beautiful, from the manicured grounds to The Castle. The college sponsors parties, concerts and other fun events throughout the year. As a Manhattanville student, you are near to New York City, Connecticut, Westchester County Airport, and White Plains. A talented chef oversees the dining hall, preparing great food that is also healthy. If your child wants to "party" and waste their time and your money, this may not be the school for him or her. And, "no," this review was not written by the school, but rather by a very impressed parent with very high standards.

I’ve had a really great time here at Manhattanville. I’ve most certainly found my home and it was really an easy adjustment. The school is small and I’ve really liked that because it has allowed me to create relationships with my professors and it has allowed them to get to know me as a person, not just as a student. It was really easy to get involved and make friends and find things I like to do. Sure it can get slow on the weekends, but college is all about what you make of it and if you put yourself out there and look for things to do, then you will have no problems!
My experience at Manhattanville is average. The college has many programs and many activities for incoming students and current undergraduates which I like. However I do believe there are a few points in the school that should change such as the availability of the health center to freshmen students. The health center should be open on weekends for freshmen staying on campus for the weekend. I would also like to see a bit more diversity when it comes to the African American, Latina and Asian community. There should be more activities to do on campus that represent these communties. There is also a lack of care when it comes to campus security and Resident Advisors as well. I have seen some RA's drink and party with the freshmen who are underage in the freshmen dorm building. I give Manhattanville 3 stars for having a beautiful, small campus and nice people.
