Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • I am a current student here

    I went to college thinking no matter where I went I would be miserable because I am not a home away from home person but Manhattanville really surprised me. The campus has such a community feeling everyone is friendly and I instantly felt at home there. Every professor I've had has really made an effort to get to know me and I feel like they genuinely care about not just me but my education as a whole.

    I didn't enjoy Manhattanville. Outside of the music department I found there was little campus life. Events would mostly be empty except for the parties the college held. There just seems to be so much apathy and indifference in the school among the students. I also left because even in the music department, there aren't many opportunities for performing other than a small chance in the school musical and a lot of informal reviews.

    This school is very nice! We have a fairly wide variety of food for the students to choose from and a meal plan to suit almost every students' need. There are a bunch of on- campus jobs for those who have been awarded Federal Work Study, as well as for those that have not. The party scene is around if you want to be a part of it but it's also easy to avoid if you'd rather not be. The people are very nice, for the most part, as well.

    I enjoy being on that beautiful campus and the activities they have, such as: Fall Fest, Clubs, The Castle Parties, etc. The people on that campus are very nice and outgoing and fun to be around with. Also the volunteer activities they have are fun and enjoyable such as: helping teachers with kinder gardeners, feeding homeless people food in the streets of Harlem, and being a mentor to orphans.

    All the staff and people here are friendly, and there's always something to do. White plains is close by where there's plenty to do, and a bus goes into New York City every night.
