Marist College Projects

International Radio and Television Society (IRTS) Foundation, Inc
A few years ago the presidents of the television networks were addressing the state of network television at an IRTS luncheon for media executives in the grand ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York. On the balcony, C-SPAN was recording the event for later broadcast on cable, while a group of Marist students were streaming the event live on the internet to the rest of the world. We were able to give students this opportunity because of the fine relationship we have with these media companies, the IBM Corporation, our state-of-the-art computer facilities, and faculty expertise. With these capabilities you can see why Marist was recently honored as one of the Top 100 Most Wired Colleges and Universities by Yahoo Internet Life magazine. Marist designed, built and maintains the IRTS web site.

High School Summer Scholars
The Summer Scholars Program centers around talented 10th and 11th grade high school students. It gives them a special opportunity to live in a college-like environment designed to broaden their perspective of scholarly life. Over the years, Summer Scholars at Marist College have learned to use multimedia tools for preparing text, graphics, photos, audio, and video for World Wide Web sites.

Emmy Awards
When our students and faculty want to see an example of the best News, Sports and Documentary programming they turn to our collection of Emmy award winners that are available for use in research and teaching. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awards the Emmys each year and Marist is the official repository of the winning entries.
