Marymount Manhattan College
Marymount Manhattan College - Comments and Student Experiences|
If I see another person in the de facto Marymount uniform***, I'm going to withdraw from my classes and move to a cabin in Iceland on a rocky outcrop.
That said, the teachers in the communication arts department are great. In other departments, they tend to be a bit boring, they just talk and talk and talk and then try to force some kind of completely irrelevant discussion.
The comm arts teachers treat their classes a lot more organically - they don't just lecture and their discussions don't feel like questions made up of thin air. They encourage tangential thoughts.
I like this school, even though a good portion of my friends have transferred out, and even though people around me bore me to tears.*** pullover Marymount hoodie and Marymount sweatpants tucked into Uggs
My next issue is that the school forces you to buy a 1,000 meal plan if you live on campus. First of all , the food selection is terriable. You can either order unhealthy and subpar food from ONE resturant with a rude staff or you can eat at the cafe in Marymount which is the worst choice . The food at Marymount but taste good , depending on the day , but you first have to order it from a inpatient , buy it from rude and smart-mouthed cashiers, and then , once you settle down to eat it , it is quite possiable that you'll find bugs in it.A month ago a girl reported finding maggots in her yogurt and just 3 weeks ago i found a dead fly in my salad. After finding dead animals in my food and growing tired of one particular rude cashier, who instead of focusing on the customer in front of her likes to yell down the line for people to order and often is smart with them when they arent quick enough to respond , i decided not to eat from the school's cafe or visit its coffe bar known as Java City. SO i paid for a 1,000 meal plan that i cannot use because I do not wish to eat dead animals and don't like to be yelled at cashiers.
Now , on to the postive. The teachers here , at least 8 out of ten , are amazing. A lot of peopel say that , unless your a dance or acting major , you dont receive your money's woth and that is simply not true. I'am an English/Acting major and the English department is simply wonderful. The teachers truly know their craft and are very helpful and challenging. You might not like their class at the time but they do prepare you for a career. Each department has its qualfied and talented teachers. It dosent matter if you are a Science Major or an Acting major; the etacher are more then qualfied and more then ready to help you.
So overall , the only thing Marymount reall has going for it is it's teacher , most of whom have taught at elite schools like NYU and Harvard. It is a great liberal arts school , for a well rounded education. However , the school
is school needs to hire a staff that is not rude. They should also invest in a capable IT department who knows is not lazy and knows what they are doing. Btter yet , they should used that technology fee to do so. Lastly, they should no charge an arm and a leg for a mean plan and dorming. The food they offer is downright unhealthy and extremley expensive; 10 dolars for a lunch contaminated with dead bugs? The dorms are over-crowded and not worth the 12,000 price tag.
p.s- except for the teachers , Marymount is seriously lacking and until these problems are resolved , your money would be better spent elsewere.
