Student Life at Manhattanville College

With 40+ student clubs and organizations, there's a group for every Valiant to join. Extracurricular activities are supported and encouraged, providing students an opportunity to dive more deeply into their scholarly or vocational interests and to meet others who share their passion. Plus, employers are impressed by jobseekers who can list outside activities on their resumes. Joining a student club or organization is a great way to meet other Valiants and become involved in the Manhattanville culture. Some of these clubs include our college radio station MVL Radio and Touchstone our student newspaper!

Manhattanville Sportsmanship

Twenty-one NCAA Division III teams sport the Valiant mascot, giving athletes of all stripes multiple opportunities to compete in college athletics. Faculty, staff, and students alike provide a strong fan base, and our athletes give back equally. Nearly 300 Valiants contribute 10,000+ hours yearly in community service.

Town and Country


It's the best combination of bright lights and quiet nights. Students find it easy to hop onto the Valiant Express—Manhattanville's free shuttle to New York City and points beyond—to explore one of the world's most cosmopolitan urban centers or to travel there for work or an internship at a Fortune 500 company. The city is a convenient 30-minute drive away from campus!

Manhattanville’s scenic campus provides a peaceful contrast, offering an environment supportive of academic pursuits and community-building. Students look forward yearly to events such as Fall Fest'Ville, 200 Nights, Quad Jam, and the Spring Formal but find equal joy in the day-to-day at Manhattanville, where bonds last a lifetime.
