The Marist Core
**Incoming students: Use information on the First Year Seminar page to identify which FYS you have been assigned. If you have not been assigned a Fall 2017 FYS, you will take one in Spring 2018. All students should read this year's Common Reading, Reyna Grande's The Distance Between Us (Washington Square Press, 2012), before classes start.**
A Message from VPAA/Dean of Faculty Dr. Thomas Wermuth
The 21st century has infused significant changes in the global, social, and economic landscape. As Marist educators, we must ensure our students are fully equipped to meet these challenges as they complete their degrees. The Marist Core provides significant opportunities for deep learning and intellectual engagement while helping students develop practical skills necessary to succeed in today’s complex world.
