3 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I received an academic scholarship.

4 College Junior

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

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The guys are Marist are good-looking, athletic, fun, and like to party. Most of the athletes are NOT boyfriend material.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe and there is always security around campus at all hours of the day

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't change a thing. I had the best four years of my life and would do anything to just have one more semester or year a Marist college.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The classes are great because they are small and professors have a great student to facility ratio. There are many options for classes and even if you don't get into the class that you want the first time that you register for it you can always get an override form and most of the time be accepted into the class. The professor are for the most time great. I would TOTALLY recommend looking up professors on ratemyprofessor.com before registering for classes because this helps so much when finding the perfect class for you.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are many great connections and opportunities that I was given by coming to this amazing school. I wouldn't change a thing.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Marist is not a big into greek life. There are a couple frats and soriorities throughout the school but they are not popular.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Sports games are always fun to go attend during the nice weather.
