Freshman Students

Undergraduate Studies at Marist College

Marist College offers students the power of a global university with the personal touch of a leading liberal arts college. Founded in 1929, Marist's 210-acre campus overlooks the Hudson River in the heart of the historic Hudson Valley, midway between New York City and Albany, the state capital. Marist also has a branch campus in Florence, Italy, offering bachelor’s and master’s degrees as well as study abroad opportunities. 

Here's what members of Marist's Class of 2016 had to say about their educational experiences:

"Marist has set me up for success in the real world by teaching me how to be confident and communicate properly. I can interview much better, present in front of large crowds, and had the opportunity to lead in multiple cohorts throughout the duration of my time on campus. I think these roles of leadership most prepared me for the real world."
Kelly Stiebler (Advertising) '16
Columbus, OH

"Marist is about broadening the horizons of your thought and leaving your comfort zone to challenge who you are and what your ambitions are in life. It's not enough to passively receive an education. I adamantly believe you have to claim one."
Charles Garrido (Psychology) '16
Shrewsbury, MA

"I took the Focus Program my freshman year at Marist, where you looked at your personality, your traits, and how you handle situations; that's how I was introduced to finance, and it helped me make my mind up."
Kristen Forgue (Finance) '16
Granby, CT

"I miss the amazing relationships I've had with friends and faculty. Some of my closest mentors have been my peers and professors."
Croix Laconsay (Chemistry, Fulbright Scholarship Recipient) '16
Kaneohe, HI
