What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
I suggest that if you are extremely eager to get to New York city, but don't know how and don't live in a place with good access to it, you should look into this school. However, that desire has to be very, very high on your list of priorities, or it really just isn't worth it. Also, in order to be happy here, you have to be very outgoing and make friends easily, as people are very extroverted but not very eager to go out and make new friends. Most people on campus are athletic, so that will help you fit in more. Again, if location isn't one of the very top priorities in you college decision-making processes, don't come here. I know quite a few people who have transfered or want to, so you should be willing to make the sacrifice of dealing with a lot of unnecessary situations in order to get to the city, if you make Manhattan your choice. The teachers in the education program are great, so if teaching is what you want to do and you want the opportunity and culture of the city, don't rule this school out. Also, there are hardly any out-of-state students, so if you come from out of state, you will be a small minority.

If you want small classes this is a great school.

Look at what the city offers for you and your major before deciding.

Have fun but do not forget about school! If you want to make more friends simply go to any of the student activities, it is very easy to make friends there!
