    Marist-Italy: Freshman Florence Experience Program: The program allows for excursions. The 45 group of students got to go to Rome to get a personal tour of the Vatican swell as see the Colosseum and to Lake Cuomo. There are many clubs and bars to visit at night such as Full Up, club Blanco, Space, Yab, Red Garter, Kikuya and Naimia to name a few. When you don't feel like partying you can hang out in Piazza della Repubblica where there is a lot of people just hanging out and sometimes random street performances. Or go to the many museums, I loved going to the Gucci Museum and Salvatore Ferragamo Museum. There also also many free events to dress up and attend such as I attended Vogue's Fashion's Night Out in Florence, and a Hat exhibit. Marist College- Poughkeepsie, NY: Everything pretty much requires a car. Or you can take a taxi for $3 when going out. Marist is known as a bar school where people go to Union Bar, Riverfront, Darby's or the Derby. there aren't many options but people really seem to have a good time. Also there are the occasional hours parties.

    As I said, Marist's campus is just beautiful. When it's warm out there is a huge green in front of the library, which we call Marist Beach. Everyone is out there playing and having a great time, but if we are not there we are probably hanging out with friends some place else.

    There's not too much on campus, and if you don't have a car then you have to take a taxi everywhere off campus which is annoying, but there is some fun stuff. There are cool restaurants like the CIA, and there are shuttles to the mall, and sky zone is cool too.

    They offer multiple ski and snowboarding trips, along with discounted Broadway and Six Flags tickets. Every once in awhile there are also cheap trips into the city.

    Marist is in a prime location for things to do for fun. Students could head up on Rt. 9 into Hyde Park to visit a town that is rich with historical significance. Or for something more modern, students can head into Poughkeepsie to embrace multiple avenues for fun that are available to the public

    The Student Programming Council tries to have an event of some sort happening every night. They bring in comedians, slam poets, and once or twice a semester, there is a concert. They also show free movies on Fridays and Saturday nights.

    There are house parties hosted by fraternities and sports teams. However, in Poughkeepsie housing containing more than a particular number of woman residents are considered illegal brothels by default...don't expect to party at a sorority or women's team house...there are none. There are also several dive-y 18+ bars in the area and lenient 21+ bars. BARSTOOL BLACKOUT. This is the biggest event. Aside from nightlife, one can enjoy the shops in neighboring New Paltz, galleries in Beacon, historical masons/libraries and local farms, as well as the occasional dinner at CIA and walks on the walking bridge.

    There is pretty much always something happening on campus. Student Programming Council works really hard to have fun activities for students both during the week and on the weekends. There are comedians, weekly movies, coffeehouses and much more. Every weekend there is a shuttle that brings you to the mall and the grocery store. Broadway shows are only $25 and they usually do one every month. You will not be bored!
