2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The meal plans are good and the little cafes are great, but the dining hall food is terrible. I would suggest skipping the dining hall food and using the little cafes around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Freshman year is probably the worst with how strict they are. It is very common for freshmen to get written up for trying to bring alcohol into the dorms, but after that they're not that strict

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus. There are always security guards around and there are emergency blue lights you can use if you ever feel very unsafe.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Bars are the main focus at Marist…there are occasional house parties but they are usually just a pre-game for the bars.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: All new buildings that make you feel like you're in Hogwarts

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing gets a lot better every year, but if you don't do well in classes and you get in trouble, you could end up with no housing at all. It runs on a very enforced priority point system…and if you do not have the highest points..you won't have the best housing.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Marist makes it pretty easy to apply for financial aid. You can always call them and they can help you out over the phone.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The area is not the safest

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class size is never larger then about 25 and the professors always put their students first.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Going to the career center is something that you need to push yourself to do. They have many fairs and opportunities for internships and jobs.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: You'll see a lot of vineyard vines, north face and other preppy brands around campus. But, there are also many people that go against the norm at Marist and it makes things a little more interesting. People are definitely preppy, but if you're not, you won't feel left out.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Definitely a lot of chains, but there are so many options.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot of history in the area and the Hudson River is stunning.

2 College Senior

Diversity: This college is so pricey that diversity is hard to find, but it is not like they seem to be making much of an effort.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Depends where one is looking and what one can afford.

4 College Senior

Majors: The education program is comprehensive with classroom experience and pedagogy.

4 College Senior

Academics: It is a good education, but not sure it's worth the price just yet...

4 College Senior

Academics: Most of the professors I have had were high quality. A few were disappointing.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors are high quality. They are also more lenient than I expected.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I live off campus, but it seems very similar to other colleges.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Definitely a bar school plenty of options.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: There is no pressure to join a sorority on campus. None of my friends were in one but my cousin decided to join when she transferred into Marist mid year it helped her meet people quickly.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Marist is a pretty white and catholic dominated school. However, we have a lot of international students as well as a large Hawaiian base!

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Our security is on campus 365 days a year 24 hours a day. They are constantly checking to make sure our doors are locked at night, but we don't have many blue lights and its an open campus.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I live in a three story eight single bedroom house on campus and I absolutely love it. Stainless steel appliances, my own room, a living room, and full size kitchen its great!
