What a wonderful school. Besides the beautiful campus, the classrooms are generally very beautiful (and air conditioned, which is great for the summer!) Help is there when you need it, mostly because the student-to-faculty ratio is so small. Great connections can be made with professors!

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!

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!
