MCC is slowly going through the process of updating all of their architecture. Some of the buildings, especially the men's dorms, haven't been updated for at least twenty years. But the library and chapel building as well as the women's dorms have recently been reconstructed. The campus center has much potential, and you will find people occasionally using as a place for socializing or studying, but it is certainly not the center of student life. Overall, the facilities are average (the men's dorms are definitely below average) but are soon to be updated.

I had little trouble going through the financial aid process. Once I did my part, MCC took care of the rest and I was very pleased with the results.

The biggest attraction that Manhattan has to offer is the Flint Hills Discovery Center, a sort of children's museum. The mall in Manhattan is the biggest shopping center in the area with a wide variety of stores. There are two large parks which locals probably spend the majority of their time. These parks are spacious and have many things to do. Local coffee shops are great. Other than that, Manhattan's biggest feature is definitely KSU.

Health & Safety:
I do not know that MCC actually has campus police. There are not many measures taken to ensure safety, though I do not feel that any of the students or faculty are threatening. The only safety threat I see is non-students who come to campus, sometimes on heavy drugs. MCC is also located right next to Aggieville, a place in downtown Manhattan where many of the KSU students go to get drunk on weekends. We sometimes have drunk people walk through campus because of this, and there is little security other than what the faculty can provide.

I was a student at Manhattan Christian College and they have (mostly) great people there and good-hearted people who are interested in your success.
However, one person has completely ruined my experience at MCC. That person is Dave Krahling. He works in the financial office. He absolutely abuses the little power MCC gave him and seeks every opportunity to apply fees and charges extra to students when he can.
He is NOT nice about it and is very nasty to the students he interacts with. He charged me AT LEAST one fee (ranging from $100-$1200) EVERY semester I attended MCC without giving me any warning and was very unpleasant about how he carried himself. He lied about a deadline I “didn’t make” and I had to get another staff member to confirm he was wrong, which he (that other staff member) did. There is no reasoning with him and when you try to talk to him his answer is “because I’m the financial officer and that’s what I’ve decided.” He treats you like a little kid. So any charge he puts on your bill are non-negotiable.
I realize that since it is his job to make sure students pay their bills, it is in the nature of the job to potentially come across as mean to some people but Dave takes it WAY too far. He carries himself in a way that makes it obvious he is against you, as opposed to working for/with you as a college student.
I get along with the majority of people I meet, and I'm writing this review because it is not just some personal vendetta. Almost any student at MCC you ask will tell you that Dave is hostile and self-seeking. And while they probably will not admit it, any staff member who works near him knows how rude and hostile he can be. Other staff members have apologized to me many times on his behalf.
A college is a business and they need to make money but Dave takes it way too far. From his malicious-spirited attitude to the way he takes advantage of students, he is not reflecting well on the institution and ultimately on Christ.
Unfortunately, if I would have known all this before I would NOT have attended Manhattan Christian College. There ARE good people there but it's sad how one person can ruin such a potentially sweet experience. Do NOT attend MCC unless you are ready to deal with extra fees, charges, and a stubborn, angry man who seems to take out is anger on students.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
