Find Your Edge

  • I started at MMC as a B.F.A. acting major, but soon realized that I was really a director at heart. The flexibility of the Theatre program...allowed me to study directing AND acting, as well as musical theatre and new play development, giving me the tools to begin my directing career right out of school.

  • Working with actual industry professionals who make your dreams come alive is the reason for this schoolwork. I thankfully have found my path and have so much confidence in myself thanks to these fearless leaders.

  • My decision to minor in neuroscience after my freshmen year was purely a product of taking a class with Dr. Hunter. I can confidently say that Professor Hunter’s guidance has not only enabled me to succeed in college but also to pursue a master’s in social work at Hunter College in the fall! I can’t thank her enough!

  • We learned using real-life examples and hands-on experience while practicing a level of professionalism that prepared me to work in and outside of Marymount.

Hi, everyone!! My name is Alexandra (Lexi) Messo. I am graduating next week with a double major in Marketing and Public Relations & Strategic Communication…and got to dabble in science classes along the way. A few of my obsessions: finding cute coffee places in NYC, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Mamma Mia, fashion, traveling, and laughing—A LOT. It is WILD that my time at MMC is coming to an end. I am so grateful for all the memories and opportunities these four years gave me…not to mention getting so close with some of my favorite professors. Check out my personal IG @leximesso_ and let's connect!! Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. See you around ! 🙂 #MMC #GoGriffins #MarymountManhattan

Hey there! I’m Kayleigh Bowen (she/her/hers), and I am a senior double major receiving my BFA in dance with a concentration in choreography and my BA in psychology with a minor in communications. Throughout my time at Marymount I have gotten the chance to learn from some incredible practitioners in the fields of dance and psychology who have redefined the way I move and articulate about the field of dance. I am so grateful for the incredible mentors I have met throughout my time at Marymount and for the friends I have found along the way. My experience at Marymount Manhattan College will not only help me in my professional career as a performer but will serve me in all aspects of my future beyond Marymount.
