The Young Alumni Council

Our Mission

The purpose of the Young Alumni Council is to increase young alumni participation in the Marist Alumni Association, Marist Fund, and the College, by developing partnerships and offering content rich programming for graduates of the past decade. The council is composed of representatives of each class from the previous ten years.
