Welcome Week

New York City is our campus.

As a Marymount Manhattan College student, New York City is your campus. That’s why we’re inviting all new students a week before classes begin—so you can explore and familiarize yourself with campus and the city for a whole week, uninterrupted.

This year, Welcome Week will be Monday, August 26—Monday, September 2, with classes beginning Tuesday, September 3. Throughout the week, a variety of programs will provide you ample opportunities for you to begin to find your community here on campus. Some of these programs are more educational—like our CityEdge information session or our Health and Safety at MMC session, while some are more social—like our off-campus excursions to the Bronx Zoo or Times Square. No matter which ones you attend, you’ll be sure to meet other students who share the same passions and similar interests as you!

Welcome Week is also a time for you to get to meet your Peer Leader and ask them any burning questions you may have—academic, social, you name it! Our team of Peer Leaders are students who are dedicated to making your transition to Marymount the easiest and most enjoyable experience it can be. Learn more about our Peer Leaders here.

New students will receive Welcome Week and Orientation communications to their MMC emails with details on how to register through MMC Engage. Questions? Email .

New Student Convocation
Wrapping up Welcome Week is the biggest event of the week: New Student Convocation! As is tradition, New Student Convocation marks the start of your official journey as a Marymount Griffin! This ceremony is a formalized welcome, featuring speakers ranging from the president of the Student Government Association and MMC President Peter Naccarato!
