About Marist College

Marist College was established in 1929 to educate members of the Marist Brothers, a French Catholic religious order. Despite its roots, however, Marist College considers itself ecumenical, embracing students of all faiths. Marist’s gorgeous campus is located on the Hudson River near Poughkeepsie, offering sleek modern facilities in a quiet natural environment.

Marist divides its academics into seven schools:

*Communication and the Arts
*Computer Science and Mathematics
*Global and Professional Programs
*Liberal Arts
*Management
*Science
*Social and Behavioral Sciences

All of its 50+ majors are grounded in the liberal arts, which Marist believes to be fundamental to undergraduate education. The college also offers a number of adult undergraduate programs, which are designed for vocational training, and about a dozen graduate programs.

Marist College provides many financial aid opportunities to its students. The institution funds a number of scholarships based on academic merit and special interests (for example, music or theatre performance). Additionally, several endowed scholarships are available.

Because education doesn’t end in the classroom, Marist seeks to support academic growth with personal growth. Student life at Marist provides numerous ways to get involved, including student organizations, off-campus trips, and the World Film Program.

Overall Rating

Marist was my top choice college and ended up being the only college that I applied to through the early decision deadline. I am so happy with my choice at Marist. Having the opportunity to study in the midst of the historic Hudson Valley is a surreal experience. Marist is the perfect school for any student looking for a college where they'll have the opportunity to be heard in their community and not just be a face in the crowd. Each and every student at Marist is given the tools and opportunities to excel in and out of the classroom and become part of something bigger.

Overall Rating

Overall, this school is really a great choice. I think anyone could be happy here. The environment is just so welcoming and comfortable. It never feels overcrowded, even though it is a smaller school. I have made life-long friends here, and I'm sad that my experience is about to be half over!
