What is your overall opinion of this school?

Marist College is a great place I love that I can commute and be close to home. The classroom size is average which I love because I'm remembered by my name, not a number. The professors are awesome I never have to worry about any of my professors not responded to my emails, I know if I go to their office there always going to be there to help me. Also, everything in Marist is advanced I feel like I'm walking to the future when I see the technology.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking for a laid-back, wear sweatpants to class type of college, Marist is NOT for you. You will be surrounded by cotton dresses, wedges, and button downs, as you sport your coffee-stained gray sweatpants. However, if you are looking for a close-knit community, with accessible professors, attentive academic advisors, stunning views of the Hudson River, endless study abroad opportunities, and life-long friendships, you might want to consider Marist as your home away from home. As a 2018 graduate of Marist College who is not being imbursed by Marist to write this celebratory review, I can truly say that I would not have changed my decision to attend Marist five years ago. While I would not give the cafeteria food a five-star review, I would give most of my English professors at Marist five stars for their attentiveness, creativity, and guidance throughout my four years. Marist College also brings together an extremely welcoming group of young people; I have met some of my best friends here. Located an hour and a half from New York City and surrounded by some of the best hiking locations in the Northeast, you and your friends will have plenty to do. Although the city of Poughkeepsie is not the most picturesque, Marist’s campus is a mini-oasis seated alongside the Hudson River with incredible views of reds, oranges, and yellows during autumn. This remarkable scene, the incredible friends I made, and the professors who pushed me to succeed are what have led me to encourage others to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Marist College is a quality school. I am going into my Sophomore year there now, but I spent my Freshman year abroad (through Marist's Freshman Dublin Experience). My knowledge of the facilities and academic life there comes from friends I know on campus, and the times I have visited myself. I have taken online classes directly from Marist and received quality help from the professors, and my advisors from Marist have been helpful in all aspects related to their job. When referring to Marist directly, I do not have any complaints.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a VERY freshman geared school, which has pros and cons. You really grow close with your class over the years because you're living so closely with them your first year and close to every class building on campus. Quality of the dorms and food is below average. Lifestyle and food venues are extremely outdated and off campus has some dangerous areas if you're not careful.

Thank you Marist for being a second home down by the river.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Marist is a beautiful school in an amazing location. I always feel completely secure and safe on campus. Every time I had visited, the students and faculty worked super hard to make me feel welcomed and answered all of my questions. Marist provides its students with wonderful opportunities, like studying abroad in Italy and internships in New York City. This is truly my dream school and I can not wait to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Marist College is home. The views of the hills and Hudson River creates a feeling of energy and peace. Professors and current students welcome visitors as if they have known them for years, bringing a feeling of love and compassion. Marist is not just a college, it is a family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Marist. I have found a brotherhood of friends and I am so interested in all my classes. I have been opened up to new ideas and the educational opportunities and networking benefits are beyond belief. The campus is beyond beautiful and I always feel safe. The food is good and there are always many options for all types of dietary needs. As for campus events, there is always something fun to do and/or participate in. I am never bored. The classes are challenging but the resources available to students and the faculty are just amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love being at Marist College. I am from Westchester, New York which is not too far from campus. I would say that the majority of the people from Long Island, Westchester, or New Jersey which is kind of annoying since there are not a lot of different people on campus. Some students are international which helps diversify the campus. Although the campus does not officially say that it is a Catholic school it basically is. I am Jewish and am a board member of the Hillel Club (Jewish student life club) and do sometimes find it hard to go to this school. When things get tough, I remember how great the education, resident halls, and scenery of Marist. When I show my friends from different universities my dorm, they are blown away. I currently live in the newest buildings which have stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and a single beautiful room! I am so thankful that I basically get to live in a hotel and receive a phenomenal education!
