Living in Manhattan
Welcome to your home away from home....
Manhattan is a great atmosphere to explore new possibilities in a welcoming environment. In fact, the city was ranked a Top 10 college town in the nation by the American Institute of Economic Research (2017). Students love Manhattan because it's big enough to offer opportunities and adventures but small enough to center on the university. Check out what Manhattan (known as the "Little Apple") has to offer! From transportation, nightlife, specialty foods, and nature there is something for everyone!
