Why did you choose MC? Besides the amazing Education program that Manhattan offers, I chose to attend MC for its values, size, and proximity to both NYC and my hometown. As someone who loves to give back to others and my community, the Lasallian heritage and values that are at the heart of Manhattan College drew me in. The size of the campus also was a big factor in my decision for choosing MC as I knew I would be more than just a number to my professors and would have an easier time adjusting to college life on a smaller campus. Lastly, being only a little over an hour away from home and a short walk to the 1 train from campus, being able to easily go home if needed while also having access to all of NYC, influenced my decision greatly. Manhattan has so much to offer to its students and has an amazing community behind it, something that I could not pass by!
Favorite thing about MC: My favorite thing about MC is the people! I have not met a single person on campus that was not willing to answer a question, help someone find a building on campus, or hold a door open for the person behind them. The attitude that my fellow Jaspers bring to our campus and community help make MC feel like home.
