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.
Review Manhattanville College
Manhattanville is a private, liberal arts college located near White Plains, NY. It is special because it contains a unique castle that is the main centerpiece of the campus. The school is on the smaller side in size, which makes connecting to other students and faculty much easier due to the small class sizes. I would personally recommend this school to people who want this kind of personal interaction with professors and classmates. Because you know your teachers so well, you feel comfortable asking questions or just participating in general. There are students that come from all over the country, and many international students as well. Overall, it's a school with a beautiful campus and a tight community.
My overall experience here at Manhattanville has been worth the wait. I am a Music Major, and a soon to be graduating Senior. As a college senior, I partake in much of a diverse environment, which helps me gain and attain responsibility and devotion, towards all that I do.This form of diversity allows my individual self to explore much of what if offered, and much of what I have done independently. I have been able to explore options in Interning outside of College, for an organization that is dealt with my field of study, Music. Here at Manhattaville, I have gained confidence and moral support in all the professors and faculty I have worked within both academics and Music. I'd hope that the future might hold more opportunities for the Music Department, Opera and Voice, specifically. This will help and enhance future musicians' qualities and experiences for future lead roles.
