    Take advantage of every opportunity at Marist College including networking! Do your best in classes and develop relationships with your professors, if you are ever struggling in a class they will feel more inclined to help you knowing that you have asked for help and are willing to improve. Remember that at the end of the day the professors are in your corner and want to see you succeed. Develop friendships, acquaintanceships, and strong relationships with your professors and faculty members. College can be a lot to juggle with classes, and sports but balance wisely and do not be afraid to ask for help, even the most successful people have a team behind them. Also most importantly if you are looking to go to Marist College as a freshman apply to Marist's Freshman Florence Experience Program. It's an amazing year long program where a group of freshman (my 2013 freshman class had 45 students) get the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy where you are immersed in the Italian culture. I not only learned traditional Italian meals thanks to my Italian cooking class (which counted as one of my science classes!) but I also learned how to travel without my family with me, learned how to budget my money responsibly and learned Italian! Trust me it is well worth it.

    Join clubs. Get out of your comfort zone as often as possible; re-define yourself. Try new things and talk to many people. Marist is a mid-size school but feels even smaller. I love to walk to the river (or even jump in!). I like to sit on Marist beach, the hill overlooking the river by the library. I enjoy great friendships already and find that friendships are what make my college life rewarding. I would prefer if Marist were situated in a downtown area where we could walk to shops, restaurants, or theaters. This is the one missing link but once I have a car, I will feel better about this.

    If someone is seriously considering Marist, I would say absolutely apply. If the student has the grades and is willing to work hard for the next four years of their lives it is worth it. In the end, all of the hard work pays off.

    Poughkeepsie is pretty sketchy so be ready.
