Why did you choose Marist?
At Marist, a student isn't just a number; they are a recognized name and face. I would personally rather go to a school where I could walk to class and see my friends while still meeting new people, instead of going somewhere surrounded by complete strangers all the time until I finally saw a familiar and friendly face. It's so easy to build connections and friendships here at Marist with professors and classmates. There are so many opportunities to become involved on campus, and I walk past ambitious student leaders every day. Go Marist!
What is the biggest thing you learned freshman year?
The most important thing I learned my freshman year of college was the importance of being kind. Being kind is so important, especially on a college campus. Almost everyone is stressed out and overwhelmed with academics, activities, and their own personal life situations. Something as little as a smile can make somebody's day a little brighter.
What is something you're looking forward to during your sophomore year?
I am so excited to get to know President Yellen and First Lady Richards-Yellen during their first year here at Marist. As an aspiring attorney and devoted Red Fox, I already look up to this dynamic duo and I am excited to see what they will bring to the college.
