Working closely with Pat Taylor, our graduate school and fellowship advisor, who helped me craft my vision and application for the Fulbright scholarship that I received at the end of my senior year.

Best advice for the college search:

Choose a school that feels like home and offers the academic and extracurricular opportunities that you are most passionate about.

Why did you choose Marist?

I chose Marist because it not only allows you to easily seek various opportunities you are interested in, but highly encourages you to pursue them such as connecting with your professors, joining clubs, seeking research and internship opportunities, study abroad, and so much more.

What makes Marist special to you?

I really love the global presence Marist has with our branch campus in Italy and programs all around the world. I also appreciate the tight-knit Red Fox community that lasts far beyond your four years. The college has taken tremendous strides over the years in becoming more inclusive and accepting to all that attend our college.
