    Campus Safety

    There are cameras in the dorms and there are camera surveillance 24 hours a day around the general campus sights and inside many of the buildings. Sometimes the police come by to check in and there are security guards that check and survey the scene daily.

    Clubs and Activities

    They offer different educational club options like Rotaract, the nursing club, the vet tech club, the dentistry club, and student senate. There arenâ??t many clubs here and not many that people participate in. There is also the spiritual get together at the chapel located in the building.

    What to do for fun

    One has to recognize and know that this is not a party college. There is so few and little of things to do here that it actually redirects your attention to your school work in finding something to do. There are no homecoming parties or anything like that, but they will host events such as a banquet ball. It is a very traditional in its nature.

    Food and Dining

    The food here was amazing and had the right amount of seasoning and spices to make it just right. It was diverse in what you needed for your health or if you wanted something fried. They also give you the option to customize order your food and they make exactly what you want. They had many different varieties of rolls and they had different specials and deli sandwich options. The café was the best place to get food on the go with their servings of wraps and many other snack and drink options which were many.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms were an awful experience. The treatment here was so bad I left the school under a medical withdrawal of post-traumatic stress and depression. The clash between how friendly and caring the teachers were compared to the nasty and shady treatment received from the resident coordinator, administration, and the other girls within the dorm was horrible. There were a lot of arguing and fighting, and the resident coordinator gave many people fines and punished sanctions even if it was not their fault. There is no playing music besides through headphones, because if you have a speaker playing music you get written up by the RAâ??s in charge. The RAâ??s would cover and break the rules for each other and for select dorm students. It is not diverse in the dorms and the few people who were there did not come out of their dorms many times. There were required meetings from incidents happening that you had to attend or you would get punished. There is nothing to do in the dorms due to the nature of the dorm school. They try to host activities and things to do, but no one is actively involved and they are childish games and attempted movies nights with no good selections. There are girls on the bottom floor and guys on the top floor. You can visit one anotherâ??s dorms but there are strict curfew hours and if you were to accidentally fall asleep in the opposite sexes room you would get written up. I had an harassment incident happen with a guy in these dorms and the faculty had a school court in which I wasnâ??t believed in and no punishment was given, yet I was punished and had to do community service. Yet, when I talked to other girls about incidents similar things concerning the school not taking the appropriate actions when it was brought to their attention. There was a lot of manipulation and bullying and girls had threatened to fight me and I reported it yet nothing was done. I was concerned with my safety and did not feel comfortable at all. The dorm room showers are so few and small that you hit your arm and body against the tile walls easily, and you may have to wait for your shower. There were more cons than pros and I couldnâ??t focus with the negative tensions in such a small environment. I have still as of today have not received my dorm room dismissal refund as well.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics was challenging and always kept me engaged and driven. One of my favorite classes was sociology due to the relation of real world events and social stigmas and cultures that affect us today that traced itâ??s way through history from back then. The most difficult class for me was chemistry, yet I was determined to learn and after a few trial and error I caught up with the pace. They say as a rule of thumb to study for 2 hours for every 1-hour class and I believe it to be true when it came to the sciences. I was in the premed and prescience program so I understood what I would be up against.

    Tips for prospective students

    Sports: When it comes to playing sports if you canâ??t juggle doing both playing the sport and doing your assignments then I would not suggest you play the sport. This school is not a top division school and does not have any championship team wins and does not pay you scholarship money for playing the sport. You do not want to tire yourself out to the point where you donâ??t want to do your work and fall behind. Make sure itâ??s worth it, and granted the school only has the sports of volleyball, soccer, and basketball. Cell Phone Connection: The location of the school is centered on an area that has a lot of trees near the woods and the buildings themselves are made up of brick walls. You will get a lot of dropped and missed calls and text messages due to the lack of cell phone towers. There is no signal and other areas inside the building are worse. You may get a signal when you are outside, but make sure you have a good cell phone provider when on the schoolâ??s premises. School Book Materials: Being prepared and talking to people who have similar classes are really helpful to know. At this school many of the classes, and even the sciences such as Biology class you donâ??t really need a textbook. They provide a textbook at the library if you need to check it out and read it and more importantly in Biology, all the information you need to know has been consolidated on a powerslide that is given to you. If people who are a year or so older still have their textbooks asks around to see if they would sell it or even give you the book. The best advice when it comes to getting your textbooks would be to buy them internationally at a place such as textbookrush.com where it is much cheaper than renting or buying combined. Making sure overall you are prepared with your calculator, a pen or pencil to write with, and paper and notebooks are the best way to go. Schedule Tutor/Study Groups: The moment you donâ??t understand anything you should schedule a tutoring session with the free tutors they offer in the academic building in the library. Talk to your teachers are needing help because they are more than willing (most of the time) to help you with your questions and to have you succeed. If you have similar students in your class make a study group to help one another with information that the other person may know but you donâ??t and vice versa. Focus: It is easy at this school to get caught up because it is like high school part two type of college. Youâ??ll be known by your teachers personally or even by your face because of the small size of the college. You will make friends and enemies, so make sure that before you call someone a friend that you can really trust them because a lot of people here can be really fake and shady. It can be easy to get into trouble and get distracted when it is so little to do and you have certain kinds of people around. Donâ??t feel obligated to help someone else out all the time as well because you have to take care of yourself first and not overload yourself. Learn from my mistakes on that one. Medical: The only two nurses on campus are only available three times per week during specific morning hours so in the case of a medical emergency you will have to go to the hospital yourself sadly in your transportation and checkups. College Credits: Remember that this is a transfer college so whatever college that you transfer to be sure that Manorâ??s college credits will be taken from your next college in whatever major you are in. Overall I highly recommend that one commutes when coming to this college to have the best experience that they can get out of it at the affordable price that it offers.

    In three sentences

    Manor college is a college that caters towards the individualized student that wants a small classroom environment and is catered for the commuter who wants an affordable education. Manor is not the typical party college and does not have an emphasis on sports and activities as much as they do concerning your education. It is a Judeo Catholic college that has spiritual elements of traits intertwined into their educational setting and is a diverse place that hosted many different types of religions.

    Campus Safety

    There is always a campus security officer in the academic building throughout the day. They patrol campus and make sure that everyone is safe. There are also security cameras throughout the buildings.

    Greek Life

    I think there are only two or three sororities and fraternities on campus. They are mostly honor organizations.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many veterinary technology related clubs, such as behavior club, vet tech club and horse care team. There aren't many students on campus so there are few choices.

    Great for these types of students

    If you can afford tuition and the other nonsense expenses Manor charges then this school is right for you if you are looking for an associates degree as a dental hygienist or veterinary technician.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    This is a private catholic school so students will tend to see nuns walking around daily. They are super friendly and are willing to help with any school issues.

    Bang for the buck

    Manor's tuition is ridiculously high for the degrees they offer. This is a two year college with a tuition of a private catholic school. This past year I had to take out a $14,000 loan (even with scholarships awarded).

    What to do for fun

    There are tennis courts on campus as well as a soccer field. Other than that, there are organizations and clubs you can join. The faculty and staff organize yearly fall and spring picnics that involve free food, music and games.

    Food and Dining

    The food in the cafeteria is cheap and pretty good. The line is almost always short and the staff is super friendly.

    Dorm Life

    There is only one dorm building available on Manor College's campus. I do not live in the dorms so I can not say whether they are great or not.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are not extremely difficult, but they do require a lot of work outside of class. There are numerous tutors available on campus as well as a helpful library staff.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are accepted into the veterinary technology program, be sure to prepare yourself for a stressful fall and spring semester your first year. This program requires a lot of studying and work. Professors throw out a lot of information within the first year of the program.

    In three sentences

    The veterinary technology program is excellent. There are not many events on campus for students to attend. The campus is very small.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for a college to get your credits high so that later you can transfer to graduate studies, this is the perect college for you.

    In three sentences

    It is a small local college with plenty of resources. Tutoring is free and access to help by teachers is provided due to small class sizes. It is a great college to start at and later transfer to a big university.

    Food and Dining

    Food and Dining overall is good. I have no complaints. Good service always. never disappointed.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are boring! Every week there is a new set of rules. Though we are college students we are treated as if we are still in high school. There is no freedom whatsoever. I do not recommend staying on campus unless you have to.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses are a little to easy. Sometimes I feel as though I'm still in high school in some courses. The only challenege I get is from my science classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you can commute please commute. Always communicate with your teacher whether you do not understand something or you can't come to class. try to maintain above a 3.0.

    In three sentences

    Overall Manor College is a good school. Teachers are very helpful and so are the other staff here. it is also a safe place to start school if you not sure where you want to go or what major your interested in.
