I am a student in the musical theatre program! Overall, I'd say that my experience at Molloy is just alright, but the theatre program makes it all worth it. Despite a slight disconnect between the rigor within my major and the rigor of the entire school, I find that I am always challenged, and have had a fantastic college experience thus far!

I loved my experience at Molloy College. I am excited and sad that I will be a senior and graduating this year! One of the best parts about the school is that each student receives so much help to graduate and get a job in the field he/she received a degree in. There are many ways to get involved on campus even if you are a commuter student! Class sizes are optimal for allowing professors to know each student by name. I am very happy that I chose to complete my undergraduate degree here.
I took a few online classes pre-COVID19, and all of my courses when COVID19 hit mid-spring semester of 2020. My professors were very organized and gave a reasonable format for online classes. Deadlines and workload was fair for the most part, and I feel like I got a quality education regardless of not being in person in the classroom. I like in person classes the best, but I was happy to be able to still take the required classes I needed to take in the midst of the pandemic. Aside from COVID19, my other online classes were also helpful and organized. They are also convenient because I can complete my work around clinical rotations and other internships.
