What makes Marist unique from other schools?
Marist is unique from other schools because of its close sense of community. Everyone here is friendly, which makes the campus a very enjoyable place to be every day.
Why did you decide to study abroad at Marist-LdM?
I decided to study abroad because Marist has such an outstanding study abroad program. I chose Florence, Italy, because of the branch campus Marist has there. Because Marist sends so many students to Florence, I felt comfortable being around familiar faces, yet also being able to explore and be independent.
What did you gain from studying abroad?
I gained an invaluable lifetime experience from studying abroad. By living in a different country, I was immersed in the culture and learned a language I never thought I would learn. I made new friends with students in different schools all across the United States.
