With alumni that include the former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Raymond Kelly, a former New York City police commissioner, Manhattan College is a quintessentially New York City school. (Despite the name, the campus is located just north of Manhattan in the Riverdale section of the Bronx.) While the school accepts applicants of all faiths, this Catholic institution does require students in some majors to take at least one course in Catholic theology. Even B students have a good shot of getting into Manhattan College, where the average student has SAT scores in the 500s. Once graduated, the students boast average salaries of $58,000 within five years. That’s 32% than what’s typical at similar schools, and more than $7,500 higher than the averages reported by graduates of nearby schools such as New York University and Fordham. Manhattan fields 19 NCAA Division I sports teams, including basketball, baseball, soccer, and lacrosse. Major social events of the year include Manhattan Madness, which kicks off basketball season, and Jasper Days, at which Pitbull, Jay Sean, and Gym Class Heroes have performed.

The internships given out are helpful for finding a career and being inspired to work towards specific jobs in the future. On-campus jobs are helpful for earning a paycheck . The career center helped with searching for jobs that would accept my resume.
My school gives the freedom to choose the schedule and includes many events and clubs I can join. There are constantly internships available on the school email which helps me with my career options. I would choose it again to enjoy my time here again.
Courses here are pretty great. I wish they went more in depth but that will come as I venture into harder classes (still just a freshman). The professors are very diverse and encouraged to express themselves so there is no shortage of character here. I also have so many resources here if I am never understanding a class I can get help right away.
