I am a junior at MMC and this is definitely the place for me! With such a diverse and talented group of individuals you can't go wrong with this school. Financial aid and academic advisement are exceptional and are always willing to answer and help with any issues you may run into. The dance and theater programs are elite level and prepare you for the real working world. A great, well-rounded private college!

Marymount Manhattan College is a great school for students interested in an arts degree, or are simply undecided liberal arts majors, but lacks resources to push students to be their best in academic majors. Excellent internship opportunities, but the campus is too small to accommodate academic majors. Good professors, and everyone is friendly and accepting, but if you do not voice a liberal political stance, the students will not accept you. Cost is expected, but dorms are very overpriced. One lives with 3-6 other students, and the kitchens & most bathrooms have not been renovated in14+ years. They are also dirty, and it does not seem they are cleaned. One can rent an apartment for the same price with newly renovated kitchens and bathrooms, and live without roommates for the same amount. The school is not diverse. It is full of white upper middle class students.
I can't imagine being anywhere other than Marymount, but many dislike it because it isn't for them. Personally I LOVE small class sizes. I'm a communications major with a minor is business management and law and ethics. I get minimal homework and have straight As on the deans list just for participating. I came to Marymount a 2.8 GPA student and now have a 3.6. I love all my professors and really made strong relationships with them. Being in New York has endless possibilities. Comm classes are easy and class options are great. If you want to be a comm major, COME TO MARYMOUNT! Corey Liberman is the gem of the school and the best professor a student could ask for. It's not right for everyone because it's a small school and it's a city campus. The school is very cliquey but If you're outgoing you'll have no problems making friends. last thing is if you want party life you need a fake ID but can still have fun without one just not as much. Any time I can gas up my school I do 100%
