A Campus Transformed
Marist is blessed with a setting of great natural beauty, perched on the banks above the magnificent Hudson River. A priority of The Campaign for Marist was to further develop a campus that will meet the current and future needs of the College while taking full advantage of the splendor of its environment.
Continuing a process that began with construction of the James A. Cannavino Library in 2000 and implements the goals of the 2004 Campus Master Plan, Marist has emphasized the river as a focal point of the campus with the Hudson River Valley vernacular architecture as the guiding influence. Evidence of the College's success is seen most prominently in the $35 million Hancock Center, a Robert A.M. Stern-designed stone and brick academic building, which is surely one of the most beautiful buildings anywhere on a college campus.
But the impact of this effort can be seen across the campus and throughout all areas of the College, thanks to the combined vision of the Campus Master Plan and the resources raised through The Campaign for Marist.
