As an undergraduate, Manikian lived in Carmichael Hall and was active in dorm government. He helped organize events in Carmichael Hall’s lounge, including concerts, all night movie nights, dorm meetings, parties, and the First Annual Riotous Carmichael Extravaganza (F.A.R.C.E) in 1969. Manikian also helped promote these events through creating and distributing clever flyers. In the fall of 1974, Dean of Students Jim Steindler created the position of Social-Cultural coordinator for Carmichael Hall, and appointed Manikian to the position. Then in his first year of dental school, Manikian continued to live in Carmichael Hall and arrange for social events, including faculty lectures, concerts, and artist presentations.
As a resident of Carmichael Hall, Manikian was close to the site of the fire at Barnum Hall on April 14, 1975, and took numerous photographs of the scene.
