Today is October 1, so you know what that means. It’s officially spooky season! Looks like MMC’s biology lab has already started decorating for Halloween, or was that always there? 🎃🍁🍂🔬🧪

Have you seen these beautiful new sculptures on Main Campus? Created by visiting artist Yvonne Shortt, the two pieces were installed at MMC to uplift students’ personal narratives through public art. If you haven’t had the chance to, visit the Lowerre Family Terrace to see “Warrior Afro Pick,” created to promote self-reflection by the observer. And as you walk towards Second Avenue, take a look at the front of the Townhouse at 255 East 71st Street to view “Accessory Afro Pick,” which explores Shortt’s personal narrative as a woman of color. Throughout her time with MMC, Yvonne will engage the community in conversation over the role of visiting artist as a collaborative partner creating conduits to lift student voices. Read more about Yvonne, the inspiration for her artwork, and her role at MMC at the link in our bio!

WHAT A WEEK! Our 2021 Welcome Week included residence hall move-in, important information and social events on campus, excursions all across this crazy city, and an official Convocation Ceremony for new students! From a sunset boat cruise, exploring Manhattan’s newest island, and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge (all during a heat wave 🥵), none of this could have been possible without MMC’s Student Life team, Residence Hall staff and RAs, our incredible facilities team, the PEER LEADERS, and so many more. Thank you. We can’t wait for Monday!

Not even a hurricane can stop the Class of 2025! Despite the rain, we moved hundreds of new Griffins into our Cooper Square and 55th Street residence halls this weekend. A huge thank you to our invaluable Facilities team and the incredible group of RAs, Peer Leaders, and Griffin Guides who helped our Residence Life staff move our new group of students in. Not an easy lift! We can’t wait to see some of your newly decorated rooms — tag us in your photos or DM us to be featured on our story 🤩 #GoGriffins #MarymountManhattan
