Overall Experience: What a great campus and beyond excellent professors (MT program at least). Way, way too expensive though. Financial aide dept is pretty good about helping you.

Overall Experience: I went here for grad school. I received my MA in Museum Studies. The GREAT thing about Marist is that they have a campus in Florence, Italy and the grad program is a year. Perfect for Museum Studies. The program (which is taught in cooperation with LdM, Lorenzo de Medici Institute) has great professors and courses. The professors are mainly from the University of Florence or LdM and are NOT from Marist. This is important because while they are awesome, Marist's actual staff is not. Marist's staff there is disorganized and unprofessional. There were so many issues with our visas and not receiving paperwork etc. Just a lot of miscommunication. Hopefully they have fixed it since I went there (2012 to 2013) because this program really has the potential to be amazing and could put Marist on the map for Museum Studies!

Overall Experience: Marist has the aesthetic appeal as well as the challenging course load! Incredible school

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Marist College. The campus is small enough where I often see friends in passing, yet large enough to meet new people. It's a very connected campus, both technologically and social. Marist has a strong partnership with IBM, earning a reputation in being one of the most connected campuses in the country. Because of Marist's small student body, there is a very strong sense of community. Students are pleasant and polite. The door WILL be held open for you. Pertaining to professors, he/she will know your name. My largest class had 40 students, while my smallest had 12. Professors will address you by your name in and out of the classroom. They get to know you and want the best learning experience for you.

I could blabber about Marist for hours. It's truly an amazing school--academically, geographically, and socially. :)

Overall Experience: I can honestly say that choosing Marist is one of the best decisions I have made. The classes are small, and professors are so open to meeting with you during office hours (or even booking appointments outside of their office hours if you can't attend them). The individual attention I get from professors has been invaluable, and the relationships I have developed with some of my professors has even led to being invited to present at a national conference and conduct my own research. Some of my favorite experiences at Marist have been with the clubs I am a part of. Because of the Priority Point system (students get points for academics, clubs, and discipline, and housing conditions), students are motivated to get involved in clubs and attend/help at different events, and our clubs have a strong presence on campus. One of the things that makes Marist unique is our location on the Hudson River. How many schools have docks and benches on the water, where students frequently sit by the river and socialize or do homework when it's warm out? When it's nice out, students also like to hang out on the green in front of the library, which is called "Marist Beach". Marist is such a beautiful campus and there are so many opportunities to get involved and have fun here!

Off-Campus Dining: I mostly eat in the dining hall since freshmen have unlimited swipe. But there are Apple Bee, McDonalds, Starbucks and more around the campus. They are fifteen minutes walk away. They are usually cheap and sometimes have student discounts.

Administration: My friends and I don't drink or smoke so we didn't have any issue with the securities. But we would often see some kids trying to smuggle drinks in the dorms and will get caught by the security. They will be reported and a letter will be sent to home. We also have a swipe system to go into the dorms. If you are drunk and cannot swipe correctly for three times straight, you will be called an ambulance without questions. The dry side of the campus takes drinking seriously although I know some friends who still drink, but they do it outside the dorms. Smoking also is mostly done outside the dorm room. There is also SNAP which consists of students who are paid to escort people. If you feel you are not safe at night, you can request SNAP to escort you to your destination which is really convenient for people who stayed out too late or who have night classes.

Scholarships: Marist College offered me the most money on my scholarship packet. Out of 40,000 dollars, I was given 30,000 dollars with only 10,000 dollars to cover from my pocket.

Campus Food: The dining hall is a beautiful place and I will never get tired of eating there. My friends and I usually eat in the quiet dining hall where we can overlook the Hudson River and discuss the latest gossip. The dining hall is the great place. But the food on the other hand, is repetitive. The international bar seems to only focus on making omelettes and noodle bowls. I wish to see more international food. The main dining food is great sometimes but bad sometimes. The biggest complaint I have against the dining hall is during the finals week, instead of making delicious food and desserts to help us with our finals, Sodexo uses meals out of whatever is leftover from the year. This means a really bad tasting pasta, bad and oily garlic bread and so on. As freshmen, we only relied on dining hall food. But the food was so bad that we couldn't concentrate on the finals and had to spend money on the Cabaret where we can get decent food. But with finals come late night studying. The Sandella part of Cabaret closes early and the only options leave us students with greasy food from the Grill.

Campus Housing: Living on Marist Campus is a great experience. Every buildings is at most ten minutes walk away so it is really easy to get to class. The dorm I lived in (Marian Hall) is spacious and lively. The only negative aspect of living in Marian Hall is that the dorm does not come with a kitchen. During winter, it is really chilly but the snow makes the campus looks as if it's a picture. In spring, the grass could not be greener and the air is clean. Most of the students lie around or play frisbee and have fun in the campus green in front of the library. The library is always air conditioned and resembles a castle. The staff are always helpful and the book selections is expansive. The student center is the main building where every events is held. The student activities sell tickets to broadway shows and concerts at a cheaper price for the students. There are many great things I can write and write about living on Marist Campus and the list would never end.

Scholarships: I received an academic scholarship.

Campus Food: The dinning hall is new and pretty, but the quality of food really isn't/wasn't ever that good. They need to start using better quality ingredients so then maybe their food won't be so unenjoyable.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are great! As an upper classman you will have the opportunity to live in town housed, which allow you to have your own room. Marist uses a priority point based scale to select houses, so make sure you have a high number to insure you will get the type of housing you'd like.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You need a car to get to most of the good places, but a lot of them are fairly cheap for a good price. There are also some good chains.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I understand why rules are put in place but some seem unnecessary. For example: having the school get a warrant to search our suite because they assumed we were distributing drugs BEFORE consulting us about the matter.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Marist is mainly a bar school which is fun but gets really old after a while. Parties usually are boring/overcrowded/get shut down easily. The best parties are pregames with friends.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Received a scholarship but the school refused to give me any more. Set in their ways.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Honestly the food here is great. It can get a little old sometimes but they have really stepped up their variety game. Many of the sources are organic or local grown.

Most of the students are spoiled rotten, so they love to complain about the food. Compared to other college's dining halls hat I have visited, Marist's far surpasses them.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman/sophomore have the most accessible housing. Juniors/seniors have a bit better housing but it is further away and more pricey. The housing process is a pain with way too many accepted students compared to the actual amount of housing. High chance you'll be in a buildup. Compared to other school's dorms that I have visited, Marist's seems to be more clean, spacious, and have less chance for theft.

Academics: I was a fashion merchandising major with a business concentration and a minor in PR. The fashion program at Marist is really well known in the industry and there are so many connections between the school and the industry, especially the fact that it is very close to the city helps. The work load is very heavy but it is worth it in the long run. It is enjoyable and fun the professors love their jobs.

Academics: Marist was my absolute dream school. It is a very tough school academically but there are so many support options and help in order to help you succeed. The professors are always trying to help you do your absolute best and get the greased that you deserve. The workload is average but very manageable with proper time management.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: The gym and the library are very nice and always a great place to go. The green is a great place to hang out with friend and play frisbee during the spring and summer months. The students refer to the green as "Marist Beach" is is very popular. The river is also a popular place to go lay out and enjoy the nice weather.

4 College Senior

Local Area: The Hudson River Valley is very beautiful. There are so many attractions and things to do
