    It is easier being a resident student than a commuter (so if you are from one of the 5 boroughs deff try to dorm here) 100% a bar school so if you are planning on coming here to party, get a fake ID. The professors here will help you with whatever you need and are always ready to talk to you. The work load is heavy at times, so be prepared to do a lot more than you are used to. You don't have to go in decided on a major!!! Do what you love and not what other people are expecting you to do.

    Do not think that when you visit the school as a prospective student that the food is always that good, because it isn't. The kitchen staff outs on a big show every time a sizable group of prospective students is touring the campus. Also, expect to be nickeled and dimed. Whether it be a soda that costs three dollars at a vending machine, or having to pay extra for class trips, expect this to happen. If you do not mind noise, then this is the place for you. The close proximity to Broadway (242 street) comes with much noise, as many students can clearly hear the subway, or patrol car sirens from their room. I find myself waking up before my alarm some mornings.

    Be sure to get an on campus job since youâ??ll be taking the subway and bus to get anywhere and everything in the city is expensive.

    Do not get behind on your school work. The professors will let you know on the first day when tests and papers are going to be so be prepared because the semesters fly by.

    While the work is a lot at times, the downtime is copious and pleasing. Many clubs and organizations present on the campus allow room for student participation on campus; it is wise to take advantage of these opportunities to make friends and learn new skills. If a student wants an organization or club formed, there is also a large margin of space to do that. As someone with experience doing both, dorming is a far better experience then commuting; if you can, stay on campus as a resident. Take advantage of the area you are in; it has a few really nice parks worth visiting. In addition, New York City is very easy to reach by train. While drug culture is noticeably large on campus, there is no pressure to do any if you are uncomfortable with the idea. It should be pointed out that the college's culture is very bar-friendly. If you are dorming, do not get caught up too much in partying (especially STEM-major students), since the workload is powerful and the weeding-out process at Manhattan is a bit overdone. Just remember that you can and should always go for extra help whenever you need it. The college itself is small but you will get a lot of exercise just from walking around. The food from the cafeteria is good for about the first two weeks of classes; after that it is better option to get dinner at one of the food places around the college (there are may delis, diners, and pizza places around the college in the Riverdale area). A key tip at Manhattan College is to always be willing to try something new (be it a club or a class--Manhattan College seems to add a new bunch of classes each year) and don't be afraid to go for the gold.
