Marymount Manhattan College Reviews

My experience thus far at Marymount has been nothing like what I expected. I had always planned to be on a campus with a very basic college scene. This is the exact opposite from that, having classes around NYC with a majority of focus on school. I learned to love the city and use it to my advantage. I have made amazing friends and connections with my teachers. I feel as if I am welcomed into the community that Marymount has built. I am a Musical Theatre major with a Business minor and am a member of the Honors College. The intensity of each program is amazing and perfectly balanced. I love this school. If I had to change some things I would expand it a bit since it is smaller than expected, but that is what makes everyone in the school so close. I would also love for the dining hall to be opened on the weekends so I can eat. In this situation, the goods totally outweigh the bad and I am so glad I chose to attend this college!

I transferred to MMC after one semester at a different college. I was a double major in business and communications. Marymount was my saving grace. I met the best people, the best faculty members, and staff that I am still in touch with to this day. I am so thankful for my time at MMC and hope that students who are unsure about MMC get the opportunity to visit campus and see what the school is all about. You can read every single thing online about a school, but don't make a choice until you actually get to go in person. MMC is a magical place, don't let what is said online deter you from giving it a chance. It's not the school for everyone, but it may be the school for YOU!
The quality of staff, wide ranging coursework, and community connectedness at this school, is truly unparalleled. In one of the busiest cuties in the world it easy to feel lost or unnoticed - but not here. No matter your major, advisors (and professors) spend time getting to know YOU, your goals, and your capabilities as a student. They prioritize helping you discover your strengths and develope a course schedule that both challenges and expands your understanding of your interests.

The students here, each bring their own unique and diverse talents which definitely creates a safe and creative space to explore academic, artistic, and personal interests.

Without hesitation I recommend this university to anyone looking for a close community and unparalleled educational experience in New York City.
