    A lot of people at Marist complain that there's not really a whole lot to do. But, it's just a matter of applying yourself. There are always activities happening on campus that make living there fun. Another huge plus (which you will hear about over and over) is the amazing view of the river. Having such a pretty campus makes a huge difference.

    I first came to Marist with incredibly high expectations, for it was my top choice. So far it has lived up to every one of them. It's a great school with an amazing community. I can't stress enough how much fun it is to be on campus, and how involved you can be so easily. If you really want to experience everything about college, this is a perfect place to be.

The people of Marist are generally very amiable, outgoing, and like to have a good time. You never really walk anywhere without saying hi or having a conversation with at least one person. If you're a people person, Marist has nice people. If you're not, Marist has a nice scenic views, a grand library and well-equipped gym for you to tune out the people with.
