JHQ: Arches is a learning and living experience


Published on Dec 6, 2018

The Arches is a learning and living experience for freshmen that provides an enriching introduction to college life at Manhattan College.

Arches students live in a community in Lee Hall and take one class together each semester of their freshman year that incorporates cultural excursions and service projects in New York City. Many former Arches students say the friendships they made through the program last well beyond graduation.

JHQ: Who is St. John Baptist de La Salle?


Who is St. John Baptist de La Salle?
Published on Nov 15, 2018


The Manhattan College community dedicates a community artwork to commemorate the life and legacy of St. John Baptist de La Salle for the Tercentenary.

The Vatican declared 2019 as a Jubilee Year (Nov 17, 2018 – December 31, 2019) to recognize the 300th anniversary of the death of Saint John Baptist De La Salle (April 30, 1719).

“A Jubilee Year offers the opportunity to express our faith through concrete actions in favor of those most in need. I invite all of you to celebrate the jubilee through practical acts of kindness and service to young people yearning for mercy and compassion,” says Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, Superior General of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (De La Salle Christian Brothers).

St. John Baptist de La Salle is the founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, and Patron of Christian Teachers. Manhattan College, as the first Lasallian institute of higher education in the world, created a community artwork collage of our Lasallian experiences. Students, faculty and staff contributed to this truly special work of art, and discussed the importance of living the Lasallian mission united with one heart, one commitment, one life.

Learn about the history of St. John Baptist de La Salle and our commitment to his legacy in this video. Find out more about the first Lasallian institute of higher education in the world and our mission at
