Divine '17                                                                                              

Major: International Business
Minor: Psychology

Why did you choose Marist?
I chose Marist College because I wanted to be a part of a college where my voice can be heard, I could call home, I could share my culture and experience with people who would be interested in listening and learning from me, and where I could learn about the American culture.

What do you like most about your current Marist experience?
What I like most about Marist is the people and the environment, because both have been able to transform my learning capabilities, cognitive process, and personality into a better one. The one department that has helped me with all of these is the Marist College Gospel Choir; they are my family at Marist College.

Marist Involvement:
College Gospel Choir, the Marist Singers, The Marist Toastmasters, Agents of Social Change, Student Ambassadors, and Campus Ministry.

 

Alannah '16

Major: Social Work

Why did you choose Marist?
I chose Marist because people like "Aunty Corinne" in Admissions made me feel secure in my decision to go so far from home. The diverse environment made me comfortable that I wouldn't stick out being from far away. In fact, my journey is pretty short compared to many other kids! Also, the environment of caring that I initially sensed has only gotten stronger. Being in this type of environment where students care and support one another makes being far from home much easier!

What do you like most about your current Marist experience?
I love that my experience in Italy freshman year has carried over into my remaining time at Marist. I learned so much in my first year studying at Lorenzo de Medici and I am able to bring unique global perspectives into the classrooms here in New York. Also, I love the pre-established relationships that Marist professors and supervisors have within the community. Community involvement has been such a huge part of my studies at Marist; from presenting at a conference this fall to interning at different agencies, these opportunities are made possible by the hardworking faculty and dedicated professors.

Majors: Communication and Spanish

Why did you choose Marist?
Other than the breathtaking views of our beautiful campus, I especially admired the strong presence of a united Marist Community. On any given day, rain or shine, it is evident that students are genuinely proud of their education. 


What do you like most about your current Marist experience?
My experience at Marist has exceeded far beyond a traditional education in a classroom. Through my Manhattan internship experience and semester in Madrid, I have pushed myself far beyond my comfort zone. Marist faculty and staff constantly encourage students to tackle new challenges, and I have certainly benefited greatly from the opportunities provided by the Marist Fund.

Marist Involvement:
Kappa Kappa Gamma, Marist Ambassadors and Tour Guide program, Deans Circle, Sigma Delta Pi, orientation leader, and student assistant in the Admissions Office.
