Marist is one of the best colleges in the United States. The community environment, faculty, staff and administration is remarkable. I love it here!
Samantha from Pequannock, NJ
A community experience that provides a family oriented environment. It is a great place to call a home away from home. A good place to go if you are apprehensive about living away from home.
