Zachary Dexter, Putnam, CT


After spending a semester and a half at Quinebaug Valley Community College in zach
Danielson, Connecticut, I transferred to Marist. Immediately I became involved with the Emerging Leaders Program, Marist Ambassadors, Marist College Television, and intramurals. I was then elected to the Marist Ambassadors Executive Board and the Marist College Television Executive Board the next semester. Currently, I am working towards fulfilling the requirements for induction into the National Society of Leadership and Success through the Emerging Leaders Program, this spring. In my spare time, I help with audio support for events on campus, such as the Marist College Council Theatre Arts production and Marist College Singers concerts. When at home, I like to travel New England on, and restore, 1980's Honda motorcycles.


My experience with the tight-knit classes at community college influenced me to look for colleges with similar class sizes. At Marist, I found a school that offered an outstanding education, a great reputation, small classes, faculty that offered close 
relationships, and a beautiful campus. 


Transferring for the spring semester can be difficult, but Marist helped me every step of the way. I could access a checklist of my application materials online, and the staff was always incredibly friendly and supportive whenever I called into the Admissions office. In the end, there was no competition that measured up to Marist!
