“I transferred to Marist once I completed my first two years at Dutchess Community College (DCC) and wanted to continue to be a commuter student. I wanted to find a local school that had a great business administration program. Also, the campus was so pretty, I could actually see myself walking the campus and studying in the library while viewing those beautiful sunsets over the Hudson River.”
