New York City brims with possibility. Every block you walk, every interaction you have, every connection you make here will animate your future. The city is a pulsing network—of people, of neighborhoods, of careers, of promise.

MMC’s CityEdge plugs you into the network.

CityEdge opens up the city’s educational avenues. It immerses you in the city’s world-shaping industries. It introduces you to mentors and leading industry professionals of all stripes. It prepares you for a post-college career of achievement and fulfillment. It gives you your edge.

Get lessons on light and composition with professional photographers in a signature course.

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!

This afternoon we celebrated the official opening of MMC’s Intercultural Center! The event featured remarks by President Kerry Walk, Ph.D., Intercultural Center leadership, and student representatives, all who helped make this exciting new space possible! Today’s event included a tree watering ceremony that represented the three pillars of the Intercultural Center: Advocacy, Empowerment, and Perspective. Thank you to everyone who attended today and we look forward to seeing you in the IC throughout the year! #MarymountManhattan #InterculturalCenter #Advocacy #Empowerment #Perspective

We’re excited to have you back on campus and hope you’re ready for the return of in-person events! Today we’re throwing it back to Apple Fest 2019, our annual autumn block party featuring SO much more than delicious fruit — we’ll have fun activities, tasty treats, and opportunities to engage with your classmates. Apple Fest is the perfect opportunity to meet all of the clubs and organizations MMC has to offer. We hope to see you at Apple Fest 2021 in just TWO weeks on September 23.    #MarymountManhattan #GoGriffins #AppleFest

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

In just a couple weeks, East 71st Street will be bustling with new and returning students living across the boroughs and beyond — and we are SO ready! If you haven’t already, all students are required to submit your vaccination information or receive an approved exemption. This includes you, COMMUTER STUDENTS! We haven’t heard from many of you and this information is *critical* for helping us construct some of our health and safety protocols. Visit the “Vaccination Information” tab at the link in our bio to submit. Email Safety@mmm.edu with any questions. See you soon, Griffins!

Meet this year’s Jump Start cohort! These students are getting an edge on their academics through a seminar course this month with Prof. Julie Huntington. We joined them on a walking tour this morning through Central Park’s historic Seneca Village as part of their “Interdisciplinary Central Park” class. Dr. Huntington is a top-notch guide — we highly recommend checking out this historic landmarked area on the west side of Central Park! #JumpStartMMC #MarymountManhattan #collegeinnyc

Big things are happening on East 71st Street! The 7th and 8th floors have been cleared and demolition is complete, marking a major milestone in our exciting Judith Mara Carson Center for Visual Arts project. While access is restricted due to construction, we wanted to show a few shots from behind the scenes. In just about a year, these spaces will be part of the College’s state-of-the-art creative hub for teaching and learning. Stay tuned for more updates! #mmcvisualarts #visualartscenter #judithmaracarsoncenter #marymountmanhattan #demolition #capitalproject

Stay safe, Griffins! CDC guidance for mask wearing is changing rapidly and cases are on the rise. If you haven’t already, get vaccinated if you can. We want to make sure our campus is as safe as possible for the entire community at the start of fall and throughout the semester. Click the link in our bio for more info on vaccinations and our health protocols! We can’t wait for Welcome Week — tell us in the comments what YOU’RE most excited for this fall at MMC! #gogriffins #MarymountManhattan #collegeinnyc #newyorkcity #college
