season preview Heading into his fifth season at the helm of the Manhattan College men’s soccer team, head coach Michael Swanwick has never been as optimistic about the team’s chances to move into the top echelon of the MAAC. “My optimism is based on the fact that we ended last season as well as we did, the performances we displayed during the spring season and probably the best recruiting class we’ve had during my time here, including several players who come out of clubs who are part of the very prestigious U.S. Soccer Development Academy program,” Swanwick said. He also points to the fact that coming back for this season are 10 players who started at one time or another during the 2008 season. Topping the list of returners is senior center midfielder Nicholas Patrikis, who was named to be one of the team’s tri-captains for the 2009 season. Patrikis during the 2008 season finished third on the team in points with nine and led team in assists with 7, the assist total ranking him seventh in the MAAC in MAAC. He was also second on the team in shots taken with 41, which ranked him 11th in conference. Joining Patrikis as tri-captains will be fellow seniors Stephen Van Rossem and Fernando Segares. Van Rossem is a versatile player who has played upfront and in the back during his first three years with the Jaspers and Coach Swanwick is looking for him to display that versatility again in 2009. Segares – whose brother is a standout with the MLS’s Chicago Fire and plays for the Costa Rican national team -- sat out last season with a knee injury but turned in a good performance during this past spring season, providing a glimpse of what he will be able to do for Manhattan in the defensive midfield spot. “I am thrilled to have Nick, Stephen and Fernando provide us with the leadership necessary to take this team to the next level,” Swanwick said.

Scoring Goals and Keeping The Ball Out of the Net Swanwick is hoping that last year’s best display on offense since he has been at Manhattan will carry over into 2009. Last season, the Jaspers finished fourth in the MAAC in shots with 237, while scoring 26 goals, significantly more than the 14 they scored in each of the previous two years. In addition to Van Rossem, Swanwick is looking for junior Thomas Bandov and sophomore Deia Nassar to provide the needed firepower. Bandov netted five goals in 2008, to rank second on the team in that category. Nassar had three goals last season, including two in the Jaspers’ season-ending win against Canisius. Swanwick is optimistic that juniors Matt Gormley and

2

Jake Ostrov and incoming freshman Eric Neves will also be able to add goal scoring ability to the Jasper lineup. Ostrov returns to Manhattan after a one-year stay at the University of Maine, where he tallied two goals last season, including a game winner versus Binghamton University. Neves was a four-year high school starter at Rhode Island state finalist LaSalle Academy, where he picked up All State and All-Division honors. “Eric is a versatile player who can cause danger on the flanks and can also be dangerous out of the striker posi-

tion,” Coach Swanwick said. “He has played under one of the top high school coaches in the country, Mario Pereira, so we know he comes in very well-prepared for the college game.” With Patrikis and Segares expected to anchor the center of the midfield, Swanwick will turn to a wealth of talent to man the flanks, including sophomore Anthony Florez, seniors Nick White and Fabricio Pesantez, juniors Paul Rolston, Sean Russell and James Gannon and incoming freshman Vincent McEnroe. Florez, Gannon and White can also move to the center of the midfield. “We certainly have a great amount of depth and experience in the midfield, and that depth will be supplemented by incoming freshmen Vince McEnroe and Eric Jorgensen,” Swanwick pointed out. McEnroe, a New Jersey high school standout, was a key starter on the PDA Larsson club soccer team, which was the 2008 national finalist in the U16 U.S. Soccer Development Program. Jorgensen, a multi-year Eastern New York Olympic Development Program selection who also has been a member of the USYSA Region 1 ODP squad, played for both Red Bull New York and FC Westchester in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy program. Swanwick is also looking forward to having a very, very strong backline in 2009. Leading the way there will be junior Josh Renner and sophomore Christopher Holihan, both of whom were named to the MAAC All-Rookie team during their freshman seasons. Expecting to help them out on the backline will be incom-


ing transfer Lenny Young, as well as incoming freshmen Tyler Williams and Tyler Kahn. Young transferred to Manhattan from Valpariso University and played for the Jaspers during the spring season. A fouryear letterwinner at Don Bosco H.S., he helped his 2007 high school team to the league championship and an undefeated season until the state semifinals and played club ball for FC Westchester, helping that team 2008 U-18 U.S. Soccer Development leage finals. Williams, who hails from Orchard Park, N.Y., was a 2008 AllState selection in high school and during his high school career was named to the 2008 and 2007 All Western N.Y. team and the 2008, 2007 and 2006 All League squads. He also played in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy program for the Empire United club and prior to that he was a member of the ODP program, having played for three years in the New York West ODP program and one year in the Eastern N.Y. ODP program. “Tyler is a very exciting, hard-nosed player who I have known since he was a youngster in the Eastern New York ODP program. He will be able to help us out right away in the back and in the midfield,” Swanwick said. Kahn, fom Rockville Centre, N.Y., was a four-year high school starter who was team captain for three years. He has also been part of the very successful Blau Weiss Gottschee soccer program for the past four years and during the past two of those years has played in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy program. “Tyler can play in any of the positions in the back and can also play in the middle of the park. He is a hard-nosed player with a great deal of skill and we look for very good things from him right away,” Swanwick said. The Jaspers defenders will front a goalkeeping position that will be manned by a keeper who will come from amongst juniors Randall Brobson, Joseph Lorenz and incoming freshman Christopher Todd. Brobson started 10 of the 11 games in which he played last season and had a goals against average of 2.22, posting 47 saves and a save percentage average of .701, while Lorenz started one game during the fall, but got all the playing time during the spring with Brobson out with an injury. Todd, from Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J. and Paramus Catholic H.S., was first team All League, first team All County and First Team AllState (North Non-Public A). He was also a two-year member of the New Jersey Olympic Development Program and a Region l Pool player and for the past two years has played for the FC Westchester U.S. Soccer Development Academy program. “Chris comes to us with great credentials, having played at the top level in the ODP program and in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy program. He is very, very quick and

a great shot stopper. We expect that he will compete for a starting spot in goal right off the bat.” according to Swanwick.

The Jasper Schedule Manhattan opens its season September 1 in Teaneck, N.J. against NEC playoff participant Fairleigh Dickinson before its home opener on the evening of September 5th against Army. The team then heads across the river again to Newark to take on the New Jersey Institute of Technology on September 9th, two days prior to heading to Pittsburgh to take part in the Duquense University Tournament, where they will play Duquense on September 11 and the University of Richmond on September 12th. The following weekend finds the Jaspers at another tournament, this one in Orlando, Florida hosted by the University of Central Florida. Manhattan takes on Florida Atlantic University on September 18th and then the host on September 20th. The Jaspers then come back home to Gaelic Park to host cross-Bronx rival Fordham University on the evening of September 23rd, then host Long Island University two evenings later on September 25th. A three-game away stand follows, with Manhattan playing at Adelphi University in Garden City on October 3rd, before beginning conference play in the Buffalo area against Niagara on October 9th and against Canisius on October 11th. The first home conference weekend follows the following week, with the Jaspers playing host on October 16th to Marist and to Siena on October 18th. A trip to New Rochelle to play Iona October 23rd and to Fairfield on October 25th follows, with Manhattan heading home for its final three MAAC contests – October 31 against Saint Peter’s, November 6 against Rider and November 8th against Loyola.

2008 season review Men’s Soccer Ends 2008 Season On High Note If the end of the 2008 season is any indication, then 2009 should be a breakthrough year for the Manhattan College men’s soccer team. The Jaspers – who will return more than 10 players who started at one time or another during 2008 -- had an excellent final two weeks of the 2008 season with two wins, a tie and a loss, that loss coming to regular season MAAC champion Loyola, which finished the regular season undefeated. The highlight of the Jaspers’ end-of-season run was a dramatic 4-3 sudden victory overtime win over Canisius College, with Manhattan getting the winning tally from senior Fernando Londono. Freshman Deia Nassar netted two goals for Manhattan, providing a preview of what he can provide the Jaspers in the future. The Canisius win came just two days after the Jaspers took MAAC conference playoff participant Niagara (11-6-3, 5-3-1 MAAC) to the 110th minute, resulting in a scoreless tie. Manhattan in this contest outshot the Purple Eagles 22-16, and nearly missed several scoring opportunities in overtime. Jaspers’ goalkeeper John Ciano posted six saves and recorded his first shutout of the season. The previous weekend, the Jaspers had beaten Rider University 3-2 on another gamewinning goal by Londono. “We played well all year, but until the final few weeks we just couldn’t get some of the results we deserved from that good play,” said Michael Swanwick, the Jaspers’ head coach. “But the last two weeks of the season showed just how well we could play and finish a game and the guys – many of whom will be returning – showed they can do what they should for the full 90 minutes and beyond.” More than any year in the last five or so, the 2008 Jaspers showed some offensive power, finishing fourth in the MAAC in shots with 237. They also scored 26 goals, significantly

22

2 0 0 9 • M A N H AT TA N C O L L E G E M E N ’ S S O C C E R

more than the 14 they scored in each of the previous two years. Londono finished with eight goals on the year, finishing ninth in the MAAC in goal-scoring. Teammate Nicholas Patrikis, a junior, tallied seven assists, to rank seventh in the MAAC in that category. Defensively, the 2008 Jaspers featured two performers who received All-MAAC honors – senior Kyle Lauchmen who was named to the All-MAAC second team and freshman Christopher Holihan, who was named to the MAAC All-Rookie Team. “Kyle is a great story,” said Swanwick. “He didn’t play collegiate soccer his freshman year to concentrate on his studies, then walked on as a sophomore and has been in the starting lineup from the day he showed up. He has been one of the top defenders in the league each year and he grew to be a co-captain, an All-Conference player and a MAAC All-Academic. He will be sorely missed.” Joining Lauchmen on the MAAC All-Academic Men’s Soccer Team in 2008 were fellow senior co-captain John Dellipriscoli, senior keeper Ciano and junior defender Paul Rolston. “With all the players with starting experience coming back next season, along with a recruiting class that will feature several players with experience playing with United States Soccer Development Academy programs, all signals point to the most successful season in years for our soccer team” Swanwick said.

2009-2010 MAAC Story With 10 institutions strongly bound by the sound principles of quality and integrity in academics and excellence in athletics, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference is in its 29th year of competition during the 2009-2010 academic year. The MAAC was founded in 1980 by six charter members: the U.S. Military Academy, Fairfield University, Fordham University, Iona College, Manhattan College and Saint Peter’s College. Competition followed one year later in the fall of 1981 with members competing in the sports of men’s cross country and men’s soccer. On January 2, 1982, Army traveled to Iona for the first MAAC men’s basketball game and the MAAC story had begun. Today, Conference members include: Canisius College, Fairfield University, Iona College, Loyola College (Md.), Manhattan College, Marist College, Niagara University, Rider University, Saint Peter’s College, and Siena College. In addition, associate members the University of Detroit Mercy, Mount St. Mary’s University, Saint Joseph’s University, Virginia Military Institute and Wagner College compete in men’s lacrosse. St. Francis (N.Y.) College, Villanova University and Wagner College are all associate members of the MAAC Women’s Water Polo League. Drake University and Sacred Heart University compete in women’s rowing, while the University at Albany, Boston University and the University of Hartford begin competition in women’s golf this season. The MAAC will support 24 sports and championships during the 2008-2009 academic year. The MAAC Basketball Championships return to the Times Union Center in Albany, New York, for 2010, with Bridgeport’s Arena at Harbor Yard preparing to host the 2011 championship. By having an excellent working relationship with various facilities, the MAAC has been able to attract a number of NCAA Championship events. Most recently, the MAAC, Canisius College and Niagara University successfully hosted the 2004 and 2007 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship First and Second Rounds at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York. All three parties will host that event again in 2010. The MAAC and Rider University co-hosted the 2009 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Regional at the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, N.J., after recording the third highest attendance figure for the women’s championship with the First and Second Rounds in 2006.

MAAC Associate Sports In June of 1995, the MAAC continued to develop opportunities for student-athletes as the conference announced the formation of the MAAC Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse Leagues. The men’s league began competition in the spring of 1996, while the women’s league commenced in the spring of 1997. The men’s league consists of four MAAC schools -- Canisius, Manhattan, Marist, and Siena – and five associate members – Detroit Mercy, Mount St. Mary’s, Saint Joseph’s, Virginia Military Institute and Wagner. The women’s league consists of MAAC institutions Canisius, Fairfield, Iona, Manhattan, Marist, Niagara and Siena.

In 2002, the MAAC added the MAAC Women’s Water Polo League. The league is made up of three MAAC schools – Iona, Marist and Siena – as well as three associate members, St. Francis (N.Y.), Villanova and Wagner. Sacred Heart started participating in MAAC Women’s Rowing in the spring of 2008. Drake University will also join the league for the 2010 MAAC Championship. In the summer of 2009, the MAAC added three associate members – Albany, Boston University and Hartford – to women’s golf, with the programs starting competition against MAAC members Fairfield, Niagara and Siena in 2009-2010.

Academics and Athletics The MAAC prides itself on the accomplishments of its student-athletes in the classroom, as well as on the field. Mary Beth Riley, a 1991 graduate of Canisius, was the first recipient of the NCAA Woman of the Year Award. In the fall of 1998, Erin Whalen, a member of the Iona women’s rowing team, was awarded one of the nation’s 32 Rhodes Scholarships for academic achievement and civic leadership. Jose Vargas, a Loyola student, was also awarded a Rhodes Scholarship in 1999. First-class facilities are the rule with MAAC schools, as teams regularly play in top-notch arenas, such as Madison Square Garden, the IZOD Center, HSBC Arena, Times Union Center, the Arena at Harbor Yard and Sovereign Bank Arena. The other MAAC championships boast their share of outstanding locales as well, such as the fabled Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, where the cross country championships are contested, and Waterfront Park in Trenton, home of the 2008 and 2009 MAAC Baseball Championship. This year, the MAAC will take its women’s soccer championship to Orlando, Florida, where it will conduct its post-season championships at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex. In 2010, the MAAC Volleyball Championship will be at Walt Disney World. The MAAC Men’s and Women’s Golf Championships will be held at Celebration Golf Club, located in Celebration, Florida, for the second consecutive year. In the past several years, a number of the MAAC schools have also enjoyed success in NCAA Championships. MAAC schools have made a total of 74 NIT appearances and 43 NCAA appearances. In addition, Rider represented the league last season in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament. The MAAC currently possesses 13 automatic bids to NCAA Championships in men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s lacrosse, and women’s water polo. In 2007, the Marist women’s basketball team advanced to the Sweet 16 before falling to the eventual National Champion, the University of Tennessee. Last fall, the Iona men’s cross country team earned a second-place finish for the second straight year at the NCAA Division I Cross Country Championships. Canisius softball, Manhattan track, Manhattan and Marist baseball and Loyola soccer and lacrosse have also flourished on the national stage. The MAAC has also been a leader in the forefront of technology, expanding the notoriety of the league into cyberspace. In 2007, the league reached an agreement with JumpTV, Inc. to sponsor the MAAC web page. Launched in November 1999, www.maacsports. com has been a great success, providing fans with up-to-date contest results, multimedia content and an online merchandise store. The MAAC President for the 2009-2010 academic year is Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., the President of Loyola College. The Vice-President is Rev. Jeffrey von Arx, S.J., the President of Fairfield University. Bob Byrnes, Director of Athletics at Manhattan College, will chair the Committee on Athletic Administration, and Elizabeth Donohue, Assistant Athletic Director/Senior Woman Administrator at Marist College will serve as Vice Chair.

Prior to his appointment, O’Donnell was dean of Fordham College at Rose Hill, Fordham University’s oldest and largest school and a college of arts and sciences with more than 3,200 students and nearly 300 faculty, since 2004. Previously, O’Donnell spent nearly two decades at Loyola College of Maryland, where he was professor in the department of English. He also served as director of the honors program (1999-2004), where he oversaw a university-wide interdisciplinary humanities program that enrolls about 200 students under the instruction of more than 20 faculty members from seven departments. His career began as a teaching assistant in the department of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1983-1986). He has been a member of the board of Collegium, a national organization of Catholic colleges and universities that supports faculty seeking to deepen their understanding of the intellectual tradition informing their institutions, and is currently a member of the board of the Lilly Fellows Program, which seeks to strengthen the quality and shape the character of church-related institutions of higher learning for the 21st century. O’Donnell earned his B.A. in English at Penn State University (1981), and received an M.A. and Ph.D. in English and American literature and language from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the author of The Passion of Meter: A Study of Wordsworth’s Metrical Art and Numerous Verse: A Guide to the Stanzas and Metrical Structures of Wordsworth’s Poetry, as well as numerous other journal articles and papers. In addition, he is the recipient of various awards and honors.

BYRNES ‘68 A 1968 Manhattan graduate, Byrnes is now in his 22nd year as the College’s director of athletics. Since he arrived back in Riverdale in May of 1988, Byrnes has presided over a renaissance period in Manhattan College athletics. The men’s and women’s basketball programs have earned eight NCAA Tournament bids during his tenure. In addition to eight NCAA appearances (four women, four men), the Jaspers have made five post-season and four pre-season NIT appearances. Women’s soccer and men’s and women’s lacrosse began competition at the Division I level under Byrnes, and 14 different teams have won conference championships (men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s indoor track, men’s and women’s outdoor track, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s tennis, baseball, softball and volleyball). In addition, to date, 24 Manhattan student-athletes have received All-America honors for both their athletic and academic achievements. Before returning to Manhattan, Byrnes spent 13 years with the Morrison-Knudsen Company, one of the largest engineering and construction firms in the nation. A native of Garrison, New York, Byrnes earned his undergraduate degree in physical education with a minor in biology. He also holds an M.B.A from City University in Seattle, Washington. Byrnes’ Manhattan College athletic career included service to the Jaspers’ club football squad, where he served as a captain and performed as both a defensive tackle and offensive end. He was an assistant coach in 1969 and helped lead the Jaspers to a 6-2 season. Upon graduation, Byrnes began a teaching and coaching career at Queen of Peace High School in North Arlington, New Jersey. He also served as the school’s director of athletics from 1970 to 1973. Under his coaching leadership, Queen of Peace registered state tournament appearances in baseball and basketball, and captured the Parochial “B” State Championship in football (1972). In addition to his responsibilities at Manhattan, Byrnes also served as president of the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Basketball Association, the committee that makes the selections for the annual National Invitation Tournament (NIT) from 1997-1999. Currently, he is the chair of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) men’s basketball committee and the committee on athletic administration.

The John “Doc” Johnson Athletic Training Center The John “Doc” Johnson Athletic Training Center was dedicated after the 2002-03 academic year to one of the most recognizable personalities in the history of the College, upon his retirement after over 56 years of dedicated service to Manhattan College. A long-time trainer of the New York Giants of the National Football League in addition to his duties in Riverdale, Johnson was conferred with the Diploma of Benefactor by the Brothers of the Christian Schools in 1983 and was elected to the Manhattan College Hall of Fame in 1982. In 1990, “Doc” was given the Distinguished Service Award by the Manhattan College physical education department. In 1997, he was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, and in 1998, the American College of Sports Medicine gave him a similar award. The National Invitational Tournament/Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association honored him in 2000 with its Distinguished Service Award.

Manhattan College Sports Medicine Sports medicine is an integral part of every collegiate athletics program. Manhattan College employs four certified athletic trainers who work tirelessly to assist student-athletes. While Manhattan’s athletic trainers are essential in the treatment of injuries, even greater value comes from their ability to prevent injuries and ensure that Jasper student-athletes are competing in a safe and healthy environment. In addition to preventing and treating injuries, athletic trainers provide injury rehabilitation, nutritional supervision, strength and conditioning, drug and alcohol education, and general personal health advisement.

Manhattan’s sports medicine staff is aided by a wide range of equipment for the prevention of injuries and the rehabilitation and conditioning of student-athletes. The sports medicine staff is supported by a network of highly qualified medical and counseling professionals practicing in the New York Metropolitan area. The Manhattan College Sports Medicine Department features four taping stations, four treatment tables, three combo/ultrasound stim units, two stationary bikes, two whirlpools, one Jobst Extremity Pump, one upper cycle UBE, one hydrocollator unit, one ice machine, one weighted pulley station, one rebounder, one variable percussor, one cold channel laser, and various sized medicine balls.

About Manhattan College The Mission of Manhattan College Manhattan College, overlooking Van Cortlandt Park in Riverdale, is an independent Catholic institution of higher learning which embraces qualified men and women of all faiths, races and ethnic backgrounds. Established in 1853, the College is founded upon the Lasallian tradition of excellence in teaching, respect for individual dignity, and commitment to social justice inspired by the innovator of modern pedagogy, John Baptist de La Salle. The mission of Manhattan College is to provide a contemporary, person-centered educational experience characterized by high academic standards, reflection on faith, values and ethics, and life-long career preparation. This is achieved in two ways: by offering students programs which integrate a broad liberal education with concentration in specific disciplines in the arts and sciences or with professional preparation in business, education and engineering; and by nurturing a caring, pluralistic campus community. The learning experience at Manhattan College is enriched by cooperative programs with other institutions, by postgraduate professional programs and by capitalizing on its location on the edge of the cultural center and global marketplace that is New York City.

Historical Note In May 1853, five Christian Brothers moved their small Canal Street school to what was then known as Manhattanville, a section of New York City at 131st Street and Broadway. The Brothers brought with them more than their furniture and their students. They were the bearers of a long educational tradition, going back to 17 th century France and their founder, John Baptist De La Salle, designated by the Catholic Church as the Patron Saint of Teachers. He formed a community of religious Brothers who, unlike priests, would devote themselves as teachers to work for the wellbeing of the children of the artisans and the underprivileged. In the process he created a new type of school system that would transform teaching school into a profession and a vocation. The Brothers were urged to go beyond rote memory to “touch the hearts” of the students. Practical subjects were taught that would lead to a useful role in society; religion was taught to impart a commitment to Christian ethics. Between 1853 and 1863, the school changed rapidly, adding college-level courses in 1859 and first using the name Manhattan College in 1861. It was chartered by the Board of Regents on April 2, 1863 and the first catalog stated its goals — to afford young people the means of acquiring the highest grade of education attained in the best American universities or colleges. While classical languages were thoroughly studied, prominence was given to higher mathematics and natural sciences, thus combining the advantages of a first-class College and Polytechnic Institute. Manhattan College was an unusual institution. Its sponsoring Board of Trustees combined both secular independent members and representatives of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. It also combined excellence in the traditional liberal arts and sciences and excellence in professional and techni-

cal education in a single collegiate institution. As the school grew, new quarters were needed. The cornerstone of the “New Manhattan” was laid in 1922 on property bordered by the Hudson River and Van Cortlandt Park, its present location. The addition of new buildings and student residences has enlarged and enhanced the campus significantly. From this accessible site, the college is able to offer access to the cultural, educational, business and entertainment opportunities of New York City as well as a self-contained suburban campus environment. Today Manhattan College identifies itself as a Catholic College in the Lasallian tradition. That tradition has continued to characterize the special educational experience offered by the College over its long history. Its constant focus has been the education of the disadvantaged. Manhattan has an enviable record in this regard, albeit engaged in the field of higher education. From its beginning, the College has paid particular attention to educating first-generation college students, and was an early proponent of access to disadvantaged and minority students, establishing special scholarship funds as early as 1938. That still holds true today for the impressive percentage of the student body that come from ethnic minorities. So many of our graduates who later on achieved great things in their careers remember that they might have had to leave school were it not for Manhattan’s financial assistance. The College continues to realize the objectives stated in its first catalog by maintaining a full range of programs in the liberal arts and sciences joined with professional programs in engineering, business, science and education. The quality of the undergraduate programs has been demonstrated by its record as one of the nation’s leading undergraduate sources of doctorates in the arts, sciences, engineering and education, and it is recognized by the establishment of chapters of such prestigious honor societies as Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi, and Tau Beta Pi. Manhattan participates in the Consortium of Liberal Arts Colleges, an organization of the nation’s leading research colleges, and in the New York Cluster of seven colleges and universities supported by the Pew Charitable Trusts for undergraduate science education (Barnard, Colgate, Cornell, Hamilton, Manhattan, St. Lawrence and Union). Over the years, an evolution has taken place in faculty representation. The predominantly Christian Brothers faculty has been replaced by predominantly lay teachers, and includes both men and women. The College became coeducational and accepted its first women undergraduate students in 1973. Prior to that date, Manhattan had established a Cooperative Program with the neighboring College of Mount Saint Vincent, which permitted cross-registration and the merging of academic departments. Currently, women number 46% of the full-time undergraduate student body. With the opening of Horan Hall (formerly East Hill) in 1990, the College is able to maintain an even balance between residential and commuting students, and foresees an even greater percentage of residential students over the next years. Currently, the College has a student body of approximately 3,000: 2,600 undergraduates and 400 graduate students. The student-faculty ratio is thirteen to one.


Going To School in New York City Often referred to as “the capital of the world”, this is New York City, home to more than eight million people which includes people from more than 180 countries. Spread out over 309 square miles, the city is comprised of five boroughs; Manhattan, Staten Island, Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. The largest city in the United States is the center for world trade and finance and is an international hub for entertainment, advertising, publishing, fashion as well as education. It is home to more Fortune 500 companies than any other place in the United States as well as Wall Street. New York City welcomes a visit from anyone and always offers an exciting experience. You’ll have easy access by subway, bus, or taxi to all of the city’s resources, and you’ll make use of this one-of-akind environment. People are attracted to the city for its culture, energy, and cosmopolitanism. It is a vibrant, fast-paced place to work, study and play. One who is interested in sight seeing can stroll through more than 800 acres of Central Park, or take in a larger view of the city from atop the Empire State Building. Or ride the subway over and take in the neon display of lights in Times Square. Come winter time, you can stop over at Rockefeller Center for some ice skating and a visit to the enormous holiday tree. Maybe a visit to the United Nations, home to the international community, might be in order. New York City is also an area where many television, movies and music projects are produced. Walk around and you might find bump into some of today’s popular celebrities. Grab the ferry over to Liberty Island where the Statue of Liberty still stands and where many immigrants were first welcomed to America from Europe during the late 19th and 20th century. Later on in the day you can catch a comedy act or a musical performance at the many clubs throughout the city. And don’t forget to check out Broadway where there are 38

theatres and more than 150 off-Broadway theatres that offer an abundance of performances that you’ll enjoy. New York City is the place to be for any sports fan. There are the Magic and the Metrostars to quench the thirst of a soccer fan. The Jets and Giants can satisfy any football fan’s appetite. The New York Knicks and Rangers both play at Madison Square Garden. A trip to Queens will get you in to check out the Mets. Here in the Bronx you will quickly find the headquarters of the New York Yankees, a Major League Baseball team with the most World Series Championships in baseball. Count on it, though – that touristy feeling will gradually drop away and you’ll soon come to think of New York City as home turf. Your options are inexhaustible.

What Is A Jasper? The unique nickname of Manhattan College’s athletic teams, the Jaspers, comes from one of the College’s most memorable figures, Brother Jasper of Mary, F.S.C., who served at the College in the late 19th century. One of the greatest achievements of Brother Jasper was that he brought the then little-known sport of baseball to Manhattan College and became the team’s first coach. Since Brother was also the Prefect of Discipline, he supervised the student fans at Manhattan College baseball games while also directing the team itself. During one particularly warm and humid day when Manhattan College was playing a semi-pro

baseball team called the Metropolitans, Brother Jasper noticed the Manhattan students were becoming restless and edgy as Manhattan came to bat in the seventh inning of a close game. To relieve the tension, Brother Jasper called time-out and told the students to stand up and stretch for a few minutes until the game resumed. Since the College annually played the New York Giants in the late 1880’s and into the 1890’s at the old Polo Grounds, the Manhattan College practice of the “seventh inning stretch” spread into the major leagues, where it has now become a time-honored custom practiced by millions of fans annually.
