Welcome back, Griffins!

We’ve updated our Health and Safety Guidelines for the Fall 2021 semester. Visit MMC Onward to get the details.

At the heart of Marymount Manhattan College is New York City creativity

Like the city we call home, MMC is famous for its offerings in arts and culture.

But like everything else at MMC, our New York City creativity goes well beyond the expected: it infuses everything we do. Our students aren’t lost in some giant lecture hall. Instead, they’re figuring out new ways to help local kids who have speech impediments. They’re choreographing their own dance pieces that weave together ideas of identity, language, and belonging. They’re exploring how the sounds of the city affect their classmates’ moods. They’re designing imaginative chemistry experiments to answer questions about the world in which we live.

New York City creativity. It’s at the heart of the social movements our students ignite and the social problems they take on—like food insecurity, racial discrimination, poverty, and homelessness.

At Marymount Manhattan, we believe that if we nurture our students’ creativity, they will have the ability to find purpose, and adapt and grow throughout their lives. We also believe that through creative problem-solving, they will achieve our founders’ vision—of a just and equitable society in which each of us belongs because we’re different, and each of us makes an impact because we must.

What We’re About

Graduation from MMC past
From our beginnings as a two-year women’s college, we’ve transformed significantly and evolved to meet the changing needs of our students. But one thing has remained constant: our commitment to providing higher education for diverse populations.
Honors Day 2018
We want to see our students rise to their creative and intellectual potential, develop their own sense of personal growth, and chart their unique path to professional success. Equally important, we want them to be engaged members of their communities.

We embrace our responsibility to create a welcoming and accessible community built on our core values and beliefs. Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan, along with the President’s Task Force for Racial Equity and the Advisory Committee for Inclusivity, have set specific goals for addressing issues of inequality.
  • The amazing classes taught by brilliant professors gave me the knowledge needed to step into a full-time role at a company. Furthermore, the fact that the college was in NYC made me independent, courageous, and open-minded.

We’re excited to have you back on campus and hope you’re ready for the return of in-person events! Today we’re throwing it back to Apple Fest 2019, our annual autumn block party featuring SO much more than delicious fruit — we’ll have fun activities, tasty treats, and opportunities to engage with your classmates. Apple Fest is the perfect opportunity to meet all of the clubs and organizations MMC has to offer. We hope to see you at Apple Fest 2021 in just TWO weeks on September 23.    #MarymountManhattan #GoGriffins #AppleFest

WHAT A WEEK! Our 2021 Welcome Week included residence hall move-in, important information and social events on campus, excursions all across this crazy city, and an official Convocation Ceremony for new students! From a sunset boat cruise, exploring Manhattan’s newest island, and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge (all during a heat wave 🥵), none of this could have been possible without MMC’s Student Life team, Residence Hall staff and RAs, our incredible facilities team, the PEER LEADERS, and so many more. Thank you. We can’t wait for Monday!

Started this beautiful day off with some yoga on the terrace! We hope you all are getting the chance to take deep breaths and recharge throughout your first few days here as Griffins. Let us know in the comments how Orientation is going!

Not even a hurricane can stop the Class of 2025! Despite the rain, we moved hundreds of new Griffins into our Cooper Square and 55th Street residence halls this weekend. A huge thank you to our invaluable Facilities team and the incredible group of RAs, Peer Leaders, and Griffin Guides who helped our Residence Life staff move our new group of students in. Not an easy lift! We can’t wait to see some of your newly decorated rooms — tag us in your photos or DM us to be featured on our story 🤩 #GoGriffins #MarymountManhattan

In just a couple weeks, East 71st Street will be bustling with new and returning students living across the boroughs and beyond — and we are SO ready! If you haven’t already, all students are required to submit your vaccination information or receive an approved exemption. This includes you, COMMUTER STUDENTS! We haven’t heard from many of you and this information is *critical* for helping us construct some of our health and safety protocols. Visit the “Vaccination Information” tab at the link in our bio to submit. Email Safety@mmm.edu with any questions. See you soon, Griffins!

Meet this year’s Jump Start cohort! These students are getting an edge on their academics through a seminar course this month with Prof. Julie Huntington. We joined them on a walking tour this morning through Central Park’s historic Seneca Village as part of their “Interdisciplinary Central Park” class. Dr. Huntington is a top-notch guide — we highly recommend checking out this historic landmarked area on the west side of Central Park! #JumpStartMMC #MarymountManhattan #collegeinnyc

Big things are happening on East 71st Street! The 7th and 8th floors have been cleared and demolition is complete, marking a major milestone in our exciting Judith Mara Carson Center for Visual Arts project. While access is restricted due to construction, we wanted to show a few shots from behind the scenes. In just about a year, these spaces will be part of the College’s state-of-the-art creative hub for teaching and learning. Stay tuned for more updates! #mmcvisualarts #visualartscenter #judithmaracarsoncenter #marymountmanhattan #demolition #capitalproject

Ahhh, summer in the city! It might be hot and humid, but there are tons of ways to cool off here in NYC, like an ice cream cone in some Central Park shade!
