Small is good, but it is not for everyone. If a potential student wants booming house parties and parades through the town, Molloy cannot compete. Nestled on Long Island, there is no surrounding college town. The small campus and cozy atmosphere a bales easy friend-making and socialization, but Molloy will never be a party-school. It is traditional. The dorms are heavily monitored, and visitors must sign in. People get together off campus, but not as extravagantly as large party schools. Anyone who wants to use college as their "party years" or as a break from responsibility and will should not attend Molloy; they would be greatly disappointed.
