Student Rebecca L.

"I grew up in San Diego and decided that I wanted to go east for college. I was looking for the small, liberal arts college experience, so my dad and I went on a four-day college tour and saw a total of 12 schools. It was my first time on the East Coast. Marist was the first school I looked at, and the others didn’t even compare. I was really impressed with Marist and its approach to education – the idea of getting to know my professors and having actual real-world experiences, not just memorizing facts."
