Why did you decide to attend Marist?
I chose to attend Marist because I wanted a balance of a liberal arts education along with a strong fashion education.
What kind of opportunities has Marist provided for you?
Marist has provided me with opportunities for countless professional industry experiences.
What is something that incoming freshman should know?
One thing they should know is to take advantage of our campus. Granted, I’m a fashion design major so I’m always busy, but if I could do one thing differently it would be to visit the river more and appreciate the outdoors. Also, the surrounding areas of Poughkeepsie are amazing. Definitely be sure to explore them. Rhinebeck and Woodstock are two of my favorites.
