Where we Play

Our home fields are state-of-the-art turf and grass fields on the newly-renovated complex at Randall’s Island, now one of the most spectacular soccer venues in the country. Randall’s island is easily accessible from NYC burroughs and the surrounding area. The club offers chaperoned buses to practices on Randall’s Island from the east and west sides of Manhattan.

In addition to Randall’s, our teams practice in Central Park, Riverside Park, Chelsea Waterside Park, Pier 40, and Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx. In the winter months, we train mostly in Manhattan, at City College facilities and gyms in and around the Upper East and Upper West Side.

[JR: I don’t see any reference to them playing at Alma Mater.  So it’s a mistake.]

MFOUND: How is the Computer Science and Physics department?

How is the Computer Science and Physics department in Manhattan College? (self.ManhattanCollege)

submitted 8 days ago by leecharles_

Hello /r/ManhattanCollege!

I was recently accepted into Pace University, but also waiting to hear back from Manhattan College (decisions come out next week). I’m interested in pursuing a major in Computer Science and a minor in Physics.

My question is: How is the quality of education in these STEM areas at Manhattan College? Do students seem to enjoy the Physics and Computer Science programs at Manhattan College?

Also, an off-topic question, what is the entrepreneur/startup culture like at Manhattan College?

Thanks!

Physics overall is a tough class but people don’t seem to enjoy the teachers. The engineering programs are all really good though.

Manhattan also has a big business school so there are a lot of opportunities for people looking to make their own companies.

Physics is garbage. Comp Sci is pretty good.

Why is Physics garbage? The professors? Quality of teaching? Difficulty? Students? Tutoring?

(sorry to bombard with questions)

Good to hear CS is good though, I saw that the courses mainly work with Python! Pace University works with Java…

I disagree. A good friend of mine got a physics degree from MC and is now pursuing a masters/PhD from a competitive university. My roommate was computer science and the program was pretty rigorous, and everyone in her class ended up getting great jobs after college. I was a comm major so I cant speak to either, but my friends seem pretty pleased with the education they received.

[JR: Why? Looks nice but still why did they do it and how is it so cheap? Just curious. But not enough to research it. “The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   But I have promises to keep,   And miles to go before I sleep,   And miles to go before I sleep.” — Robert Frost.  I assume the image is copyrighted; so I left it there.]
