    If you are considering Marist, definitely take a tour. The campus will blow you away, and the courses you will take will make you even more passionate about your major. Everyone, both students and faculty, are very helpful and welcoming. No one has an issue making friends here, and the whole campus is a mini community where everyone works together.

    In order to truly love Marist and be sure it is the place you want to be, visit campus. That is a must. Marist has a relatively small campus, and small schools are not for everyone. If you are set on coming, be sure to visit and learn the layout of the campus itself and try to attain some background on clubs or Greek life if you're interested. Almost everyone on campus is involved in different activities, and it is almost surely the best way to meet people with similar interests.

    Don't be afraid to reach out to anyone that you meet in admissions, be it a student ambassador, counselor, or faculty. They are more than willing to answer any questions you may have. Definitely sign up for a shadow day and/or come to Open House in the spring. Those are your best chances of seeing a day in the life of a Marist student

    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.
