I’m sorry but this school is really tough to attend. I transferred freshman year but this school made it easy. I was an athlete there and even being on a sports team didn’t help. I tried really hard to stay here but I couldn’t. You can’t go out and party unless you have a real New York ID or you’re 21. So for the first 3 years you really can’t do anything on the weekends. Everyone is depressed here and the athletics is very bad. It is weird if you go to a sports game which is not how college should be. Everyone is so unfriendly and not open to making new friends. If you like to stay inside -study and do nothing everyday, this is the school for you.Trust me!

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.
The professors at Manhattanville are excellent. I studied in both the music and English departments and both sets of faculty were great. If you are looking for a small, close-knit liberal arts college on a beautiful campus, this is the place for you. We're close to White Plains too. There's a lot of campus activities to get involved with and everyone is super busy! It's a place you can really explore your options.
