Even amid the pressing concerns of the past year, our nation’s media continued to recognize — and applaud — the high academic quality evident in America’s top colleges and universities. As always, Manhattan College earned a significant share of the acclaim.
The latest recognition reflects the College’s enduring commitment to assisting the dedicated men and women who serve in all branches of the U.S. military. For example, Manhattan is one of 297 top institutions featured in Military Times’ “Best for Vets: Colleges 2021” listing — ranked 11th among 42 leading institutions in the northeast.
Manhattan also is among 52 higher education institutions to earn a “gold-level” designation from Military Friendly®, a national advocacy program recognizing civilian organizations that create opportunities for veterans. Locally, the College’s Student Veterans Organization received the Irving Ladimer Community Service Award for helping to clean and beautify Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, N.Y.
At the same time, Manhattan maintains its high standing for overall academic excellence and graduates’ success. For example, Money ranked Manhattan among the nation’s top colleges and universities in terms of alumni outcomes — for the seventh consecutive year. And Manhattan also earned notice in U.S. News & World Report’s listings of leading colleges and universities.
At this time of significant challenges, the generosity of alumni and friends continues to strengthen the traditional high quality of a Manhattan College education — just as it has for more than 168 years.
