Marissa DeAngelis

Home Town: Scituate, Rhode Island

Clubs/Activities: Campus Ministry – I joined the Catholic Students Association within this organization, and we plan on becoming more involved by retreats and community service. Italian American Society. Dance Club – I’ve joined two dance classes this semester, one tap class and one lyrical class. I cannot wait to perform in the fall show!

How did you choose Marist: I first heard about Marist through my older sister. I chose Marist because when it came down to making my final decision, Marist was the campus that felt the most like home. I could tell from being on campus that it was such a welcoming and friendly environment. I was also really drawn to the endless internship and study abroad opportunities Marist has to offer.

What you like best about Marist: I love how active the campus is, everywhere you turn something is going on no matter what day of the week.

What was your favorite class: My favorite class right now is Italian. I’m learning about my heritage, and preparing for studying abroad!

Best part of living on campus: Living on campus helps you to become more independent and discover more about yourself. In addition to becoming independent, you truly develop great friends by relying on each other when “mom and dad” aren’t around to help!

Marist on the weekends: Never boring. There’s always something to do. If you want to stay on campus, there are always students here, this isn’t a "suitcase school." If you want to go off campus, Marist provides opportunities to get off campus every weekend, especially within the various clubs and activities you may join! One of my deciding factors of coming to Marist was its close proximity to NYC. I was looking forward to being able to go into the city often while here, but never imagined I’d be able to do it so soon. I’ll be going into the city for the third time this semester!
