Undergraduate: Freshman Year Abroad

Spend your first year at Marist in Florence, Italy or Dublin, Ireland!

Freshman Year Abroad

In an effort to keep everyone safe, while monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, all on-campus Admission visit programs are postponed until further notice. While we wish that we could welcome you to our riverfront campus, we are instead offering daily virtual information sessions and other ways for you to experience our campus and facilities online. 

Spending your freshman year abroad is not for everyone. It takes a special person to challenge themselves, to break the mold of a traditional freshman experience, and to explore the world in a unique way. Marist has been sending freshman abroad for over a decade, and the positive feedback from students, parents, faculty, and employers is overwhelming evidence that these experiences have a life-changing impact on participants. If you are a student that is looking for an opportunity to distinguish yourself from your peers, to gain a greater understanding of the world in which you live, and secure memories and experiences that will last a lifetime, then one of our unique Freshman Year Abroad programs is right for you.
