Marist housing has been featured on Good Morning America.
Marist uses the system of "priority points." The more points you have, the better housing you can get. You get points for being on varsity sports teams, community service, clubs, activities, keeping your room in good condition, and getting good grades. The school forces you to be an active participant by making your living situation count on the points. It is a very stressful process for students. The system pays off for the people with high priority points who receive good housing. If your points are low, you have a bigger chance of having your living arrangements with friends being broken up.
Freshmen dorms are great but you may get stuck in a build up triple or quad depending on class size and lottery. The dorm sizes are average but the lounges are pretty great! Sheahan hall has -- by far -- the best lounge but all other dorms have their perks! Upperclassmen housing is decent depending on your assignment; even Gartland with its reputation is a great living space as long as you get along with your housemates. The priority point system is tough especially for junior and senior housing when housing is not guaranteed.
I live in the biggest freshmen dorm on campus, and I don't like it. Some people like it because it's known for being loud and rowdy; plus it is connected to the dining hall. I don't like a lot of noise, especially at night. Also, I feel like the housing process should've been more comprehensive.
Although I'm familiar with the on-campus housing pricing, and amenities, etc. I have never actually lived on campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
