Professors really care about your education. Not only that, but they take the time to get to know you and invest time into you.
It is an over all amaizing campus with incredible programs and strong teacher student connections. The professors make a comfortable experience for their students giving them the opportunity to engage and have an understanding of their major on a personal level.
Marist College offers amazing abroad programs. They have options that suit everyone's personal and academic interests and work closely with their students to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Marist could do a better job helping helping students gain access to their community outside of the college campus. For example, there are internship opportunities available that can be accessed by train, but transportation to the train station from the college campus can be very difficult for students who don't have a car.

I love it. I was told by many colleges of feeling welcome in the community, but Marist for sure keeps that promise. Great place of learning with professor who are willing to help. Great area and buildings. I found my first year to be fun and much more pleasant than I could of imagine. This is a college that knows how to teach without draining your soul.
Marist College is a great choice for any student seeking a well rounded college experience. Campus life was fantastic and it was a great place to learn, socialize, and mature. The balance between quality education and overall experience was exactly what I needed as a young adult to mature and prepare for the future. Most professors were dedicated and cared about students academic success. Classes were well taught, tech forward, socially engaging, and encouraged critical thinking. The campus is beautiful. I loved the architecture and design of the buildings and the views of the river are absolutely stunning year round. I found them to be inspiring and motivating on sluggish days. Overall, I truly enjoyed my experiences there and I am proud to be a part of the Red Fox Family.
Great professors and study abroad opportunities. I was a transfer student, and a common feeling among many transfers seemed to be difficulty adjusting and integrating at Marist. I think this was in large part being placed in housing five miles from campus. A huge part of living on campus is the convenience, so I am happy to see that the school seems to have addressed this for transfer students by expanding their on-campus housing.
About Marist,all is Good,About the rooms and the friendship and love you receive when you get there and a very favorable financial aid to help you finance your education,so i invite all of you to come experience many extra curricular activities,love and very favorable and good majors.Thank you
I like the close community at Marist college. There are many clubs and organizations to join to make you feel like you're apart of something and giving back to the school. I made some of my best friends at Marist who I know I'll be friends with forever.
The Marist Campus is small and beautiful, however, it is very expensive and I don't think the money is worth it. The campus life is boring and you have to make extra effort to make friends here.
Marist has a great community feel. Everyone, faculty and administrator, want every student to succeed. Their goal is to prepare each student for the future. Not only in the education aspect, but growing up and being on your own.
I give it a 4 because I do love this school overall. However, it is way too expensive and they make us take courses that have nothing to do with our major only because they want to get money out of you. On the plus side, there is a lot to get involved in, great night life, and they are updating the campus so things are becoming brand spanking new.
I had an amazing college experience. What initially drew me to Marist was the stunning campus right on the Hudson River. Many of the buildings are brand new and absolutely beautiful (including some of the dorms). The professors are very intelligent and helpful. I had the opportunity to study abroad and intern in London. I made lifelong friends and even met my now fiance! I can truly say Marist as given me countless opportunities and has made me who I am today. If you are considering Marist, be sure to at least visit! If I could do it all over again, I would go back in a heartbeat.
Marist is a outstanding college. I am having the best experience. I am enjoying my classes and have made many new friends. I have found dorm living to be very comfortable.
This college has great professor who influence the student to be active in the community and achieve higher goals. I personally have been helped by many of my professor for internships and fascinating research opportunities. Only down side of the campus is that there is not much parking space.
Classes and teachers are amazing but the student base is just bad. Expect to be constantly disappointed in yourself as your faith in mankind is slowly stripped away by hordes of horrible people.

Of the few good people you potentially could find, most of them have been corrupted and also have had their faith in humanity destroyed.
Great school..... went for both undergrad and now pursuing graduate degree .... I hear the dorms have improved since I left. I wish more people in New England had heard of the school.
I love Marist. Only thing is prepare yourself to live in an enviorment filled with rich preppy kids.

I love the academic program, the clubs and the school spirit. It would be great to see more variety within the student body.
The campus is really beautiful and many renovations are being made to the campus to keep it up to date. Class sized are small, which is really nice, and the teachers really care about you as a person and a student. Overall I have loved my experience at Marist and I look forward to finishing my time there.
Marist was my dream school coming into freshman year... a semester later, I'm pretty confident that I will transfer. There really is not that much going on on-campus, nightlife is limited without an ID, and Poughkeepsie itself leaves much to be desired. Not worth the exorbitant pricetag.
