Student Life and Engagement

Signature components of an MMC education are student-to-student engagements and immersion in New York City, and these will continue to be integral to the MMC experience as courses take place virtually. Student support services will be offered both virtually and in person. 

Welcome Week and Orientation

Students joining MMC for the first time in Fall 2020 will experience a virtual Welcome Week Orientation starting August 24.

The Office of Student Development and Activities is collaborating with Residence Life staff to host small group meet-ups for new, residential students who are moving in early, as well as for students currently living in NYC. The Office of Student Development and Activities will be in touch soon with more information.


Access to 71st Street Facilities

Students, faculty, and staff will have access to facilities, equipment, and technology on the main campus, with opportunities for small-group gatherings, creative endeavors, study and research, and organized co-curricular activities.


Student Engagement and Activities

Learning at MMC happens not only in the classroom, but outside it as well—in the residence halls, in student clubs and organizations, and best of all, in NYC!  We offer a variety of engagement opportunities, leadership development experiences, and social connections, and we will continue to host programs and events, both in-person and virtually, over the coming semester.  Students choose MMC for a reason, and our goal is to foster a vibrant student life experience for all our students while adhering to recommended health and safety guidelines.


MMC Engage

Students can get a head start connecting with classmates by downloading the MMC Engage app once they have their MMC credentials.  Use the app to chat with other students, faculty, and staff, view events, read message boards, and more!   


Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC)

Knowing the tremendous emotional toll of COVID-19, the CWC staff remains committed to supporting MMC students’ emotional health and well-being during these difficult and unprecedented times. As the MMC campus begins to re-open, CWC will continue to provide tele-health services, such as phone and video counseling sessions, in order to minimize risks to students and CWC staff. For urgent situations, limited in-person appointments will be available.


Medical Services

The Dow Zanghi Student Health Center, located at the 55th Street Residence Hall, offers primary medical care to MMC students, free of charge, and will be open this fall. The Center is staffed by a physician assistant and a medical assistant. It is operated by Mount Sinai Beth Israel/Student Health Services Network in partnership with the College.

Hours this fall are expected to be:

  • In-person and telehealth appointments on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 am to 6 pm
  • Telehealth only appointments on Tuesdays: 10 am – 6 pm

Please note that the Dow Zanghi Student Health Center will not be equipped to perform COVID-19 testing, but will be able to offer antibody testing.
