MFOUND: An Alma Mater connection to Minik Wallace


Minik Wallace
August 27, 2019

Once a month here on the Molten Sulfur Blog, I run content taken from our book Archive: Historical People, Places, and Events for RPGs. This post, about Minik Wallace, is one of eighty entries in Archive, each more gameable than the last!

*** begin quote ***

At first, New York seemed like heaven. He found amusement in what most New Yorkers considered to be common things, like bicycles. But he was an orphan now, alone and out of place in New York. The superintendent at the Museum of Natural History, William Wallace, took Minik in and educated him. Minik even attended Manhattan College, but despite being adopted and raised in a loving family, he never really felt at home. When Minik was 12, he was finally able to sail back to Greenland, but he didn’t receive the homecoming he had hoped for. He was a foreigner in his own land; he didn’t belong in Greenland either. So when he was 19, Minik returned to America. He found work in a New Hampshire lumber camp, and there, he contracted influenza during the epidemic of 1918, and died.

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?

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.

[–]leecharles_[S] 1 point 8 days ago

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.]
