Freshman, Communication

Hometown: Boston, Mass.

Why did you choose to come to Manhattan College?

“I chose to come to Manhattan College for one reason: because of track. I also wanted to be a part of the city, and the community here at Manhattan College is wonderful. I had heard so many great things and all my research made me want to go to this school.”

Have you been adjusting to college life quickly?

“Yeah, I’m starting to adjust now. My books are really expensive so I’m making payments for that. The classes are good and I’m meeting lots of friends, so that’s been a really great experience.”

Which building has been the hardest to find?

“Um, I think it’s called the Research Learning Center? Yeah, that one is the hardest to find.”

Freshman, Childhood/Special Education

Hometown: Leominster, Mass.

Why did you choose to come to Manhattan College?

“I chose to come to Manhattan College because they had one of the best education programs in the Northeast, and also it’s right outside the city, and that was a must have. Also, they have a really nice campus, which not many other city schools have.”

Have you been adjusting to college life quickly?

“Pretty well, yeah. I think I was prepared from when my sister went to college, because I kind of saw how she adjusted and everything, so I kind of took tips from her too.”

What are you most excited for this year?

“I’m most excited for being able to go into the city pretty much whenever I want to, and trying new things around campus.”

Freshman, Communication

Hometown: Hazlet, N.J.

Why did you choose to come to Manhattan College?

“I chose to come to Manhattan because it’s definitely in the Communication center of America–New York is The Big Apple: everything’s there. And not to mention, the campus is beautiful, the academics are awesome here, and I just felt very at home when I came.”

Have you been adjusting to college life quickly?

“Yeah, it’s really easy to adjust because there are so many different resources that help you around campus. I’ve never felt alone, I’ve found classes easily, and they make everything really easy for freshmen. It’s comfortable. I like it a lot!”
