The most important thing that I can stress

Oct 16 2014Psychology
The most important thing that I can stress here, is that this school is NOT for everyone.
If you applied to NYU (or any other school) and you are using Marymount as a fallback, YOU SHOULD NOT COME HERE. This school is for those who visit and fall in love, for those who look online and in detail at every program and know without a doubt that this is the school for them. This is not a fallback school, this should not be your safety school.

This college is incredibly unique, offering classes from asian studies to musical theatre. This is a primarily theatre and dance orientated school, so that is something to keep in mind. This does not lessen any of the other departments though. As a psych and Poli Sci major, I feel as though the college does a great job attending to my needs just as much as dance or theatre majors. The social atmosphere is great here! Most of the students are opening and welcoming, and the idea of 'seniority' doesn't really exist here. This is school does not have any sports or greek life, which I love, but it may not be a school for you if you are looking for that though. There will always be caddy bitches, but regardless the school has a great student body.

If you are considering Marymount, understand it is

If you are considering Marymount, understand it is largely based within Theatre Arts and Performance. We possess great Biology, Business, English, and Comm Arts departments, but the school is overtly centered socially around the lives of its theatre students. As long as you find your niche regardless, and you are okay with the constant showmanship in your peers, you'll fit right in.

I'm an acting major at Marymount Manhattan College,

Jul 09 2014Perfomance Arts
I'm an acting major at Marymount Manhattan College, and after finishing up my first year as a student, I am confronted with the simple and unavoidable fact, that if you are not talented, you will not enjoy acting component of acting school. This goes for any college drama program, not just MMC. I have been fortunate to have been cast in multiple school productions this past year, but I have many friends and peers who haven't been as lucky as I have been. Some of whom are juniors and seniors, and still have not been cast in a show. The performance opportunities offered at MMC are numerous and plenty, and if you're not cast inside school, you are surrounded by "Theater Mecca" New York City. MMC offers four mainstage shows a year, with a student run showcase called Director's Projects, each semester. In addition to this, MMC offers January Projects which practice and perform during winter break, which are just more examples of performance opportunities offered. On top of all that, MMC has plenty of festivals that vary with each year giving student actors, playwrights, and directors even more opportunities to have their work premiered. The reason I'm explaining all of this to the community is to clear the air on the idea behind Marymount not giving enough opportunities to its students. As I said earlier, if you're talented, you'll do fine. Sophomore year "juries" will tell you that. Yes, Marymount does have a rather large acceptance rate for theater students, but because of that, some students are going to have a better experience than others. That's just the way the statistics are going to play out. Not every student can be cast, not every kid is going to get a trophy. Honestly? Marymount Manhattan College does a phenomenal job of preparing students for the real world as performers, and gives them a great toolbox of skills that will help them make it as professionals. I would highly recommend it to any prospective students thinking about a career in acting. Marymount is a great school, with some really great people.
