Degree: Spanish
Graduation Year: 2018

I double majored with Spanish and Communications with a concentration in Public Relations. Overall, I would have to say my experience at Marist was amazing! I loved every second of both my degree programs. To start the communications degree was both challenging, but fun. The professors at the time were all awesome. I found that I could come to a number of them for any reason and they would be there to help me out. It helped that Marist had small classes. Therefore, most professor knew all of their students and were better able to connect with them. The Spanish professors were the same. They were more than just professors, they were role models and mentors. They are people I still talk to today and seek counsel and advice from. Almost all of my professor from both my programs are people I know I could still call today and they would be able to help guide me in my work. My college other than my degree programs was also amazing. I love being involve with clubs and organizations on campus. I enjoyed every second of my college career both in the classroom and outside the classroom. The activities and resources on campus were amazing. Between the intramural sports, the gym, cafes, dining halls, the river area, and so much more it was always a great time. Not to mention the views of the river and the beauty of the Hudson River in the fall and spring are breath taking. I would recommend Marist College to anyone who is looking for a fun, beautiful campus, with a close-knit community.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

Beware of the point system. it has destroyed the school and will I presume it will create very bad problems for incoming students. It is truly awful, and contributes greatly to the poor high school like the atmosphere of the college around housing time.

BEWARE of the juvenal POINT system. Sadly, It controls the school! You pick housing based on how many points you have and trust me this is one of the high school like systems! When housing time comes around you get a "score", it creates a pathetically juvenal type atmosphere as people inquire about how many POINTS a group member may have received! This system should make anyone wary of attending, and don't let anyone tell you it is not a big deal - as I said before it controls the school. Had I known more about his system I would have steered clear of Marist College. The school should be using a lottery point system. It time they learn that there is not a soul who picks a school based high involvement in "clubs" among students - pathetic they think this!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 1995

Marist College is a beautiful college along the banks of the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, New York. I was honored to have been accepted and attending for four wonderful years. As a student athlete, I was able to enjoy learning and competition. My undergraduate degree is in a discipline different to my field of work. However, the degree is supported by some of the best facility that truly cares about it's students. The academic challenges are real and support by the facility and facilities for higher education. I was honored to be part of this community and look back on my time at Marist College as a gift.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The education I received while attending Marist College was diverse, comprehensive, and individualized. The small class sizes allow professors to tend to different learning styles while still covering a broad range of information, and they make it easier to connect with fellow students.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

I had a really positive time at Marist as an undergraduate student. I was able to participate in a lot of different clubs and community service initiatives, as well as mix with many different groups of friends. My professors were always willing to meet after hours to go over anything I needed, and really took the time to help you understand their subjects. The school is constantly improving and making better and more beautiful places to live and learn,

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2010

Undergraduate degrees do not always land you in the field you will spend your life in. While I did not know that at the time (who is just a professional Philosopher these days), the professors were amazing in challenging me and giving me skills that would apply in any field I would work in. I am now a teacher and I try to instill critical thinking to all of my students. The program was informative and taught me to analyze the world around me. After graduating, I was still able to go onto campus and use the career services department to properly design my resume. They were incredibly receptive and provided me with many tools to have an eye-catching and professional resume. I was able to land a teaching interview and job within a few months of meeting with them. Marist College, while expensive as it is a private school, was a worthwhile experience for me and definitely helped shape who I am today.

Degree: Applied Mathematics, General
Graduation Year: 2015

The mathematics department is small compared to others in the school. I had the opportunity to get to know my professors and still keep in touch. Take advantage of their expertise--do an independent study and take extra classes. Very helpful when applying to grad school and looking for jobs.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall, Marist College was the best choice of colleges for me. Nestled within two hours of New York City and the capital city of Albany, Marist was in a perfect location. Marist is a very small community of about 4,000 undergraduate students, so your professors will know who you are. There are no lecture halls on campus, so the class sizes are relatively small, which was great because you fully get to interact with other students and your professor. The Marist Criminal Justice program was rated number five in the country when I was deciding where to go. It is a very small major with five full time faculty members. One of those faculty members will be your advisor, who you will get to know very well. The professors are so well known and have connections everywhere. You are also required to do a minimum of two internships, so it pushes you to become professional and possibly even get your foot in the door for a full time job. Overall, Marist was an amazing choice of school to learn not only whatever your major is, but a great deal of other topics.
