What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

LET YOUR CHILD CHOOSE. Of course as a parent your opinion is valuable, but inevitably, this is a huge decision in a teenagers life and one he or she should be allowed to make for themselves. If I had been allowed to go to my first choice, I truly believe I would be a different person today.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The lack of diversity amongst its' student body. I felt as though I couldn't escape the stereotypical notions of Long Island and New Jersey's wealthy upperclass. I felt as though I was surrounded by people who only cared about the labels on their clothes, their bags, their fancy cars and the money Mommy and Daddy put in their account each weekend.

Marist is full of upper-middle class suburban kids from the metro area/connecticut with lots of their parents' money. Attending this school can become costly.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would definitely say to visit the area around the school. Just because you like the school itself doesn't mean you will end up liking the area or have anything to do. Also, go a reasonable distance away from home. Don't go really far away when you know you have a tendency to be homesick.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

They aren't very financially forgiving. If you are late on payments, they charge you a lot extra and don't really give you enough time to make the payments. It's also quite expensive to go here.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

We have an excellent programming committee. We have concerts. Lupe Fiasco was just here as well as All American Rejects, Gym Class Heroes, etc. The school is also within 10 minutes of some really excellent concert venues. There are always things to do on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

i would advise parents to let their children choose by telling them to go with their first instinct on the school they want and to have as much fun as possible while still being responsible.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That I was not grown up before I got there and that I still have not grown up.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The lack of faculty caring and the lack of interest by students

Rich, preppy, athletic students whose parents pay for them to go college and look good in a northface.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To find the college of your choice, the price and distance from home should never been influence. You should make sure to find the time to actually visit the school. Transferring to a college makes it twice as hard to fit into the community of the school. Be sure to engage yourself or your children in the ideals of a home away from home. To make the most of a college experience, join clubs, sports, and make sure you go out alot outside the school. Get familiar with the town outside of school. The best thing to do academically is to communicate with your professors. Professors are people too! They are almost always willing to give you time to complete unfinished assignments and understand when you can't attend class, as long as you are upfront and honest.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is self concious or unsocial.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Mediocrity. Everyone at Marist dressed, talks, and acts the same. They are generally uncultured and obnoxious. They epitomize the "loud, ugly American" stereotype.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit the school before you accept their offer. See if you could be friends with these students. Once you are there, be yourself so that you find your true friends.
