Life at Marist outside the classroom offers a wealth of opportunity for personal growth and development that supports and enhances students' academic experience. From exciting trips to Broadway shows, to volunteering at a local elementary school or food pantry, getting a massage at the annual Wellness Fair, attending a workshop on stress management in a residence hall, or participating with hundreds of fellow students in the Relay for Life, there are countless activities from which to choose.
Consistent with the Marist College Mission, the sense of community and the sense of service to others are important to us. Both the philosophy and the staff in the Division of Student Affairs support the development of the whole person: intellectually, socially, physically and spiritually. In addition to making lifelong friendships with one another, students have contact with many staff and faculty in both formal and informal settings. Our programs and services are designed to promote self-discovery, leadership development, healthy behaviors and social responsibility as well as enjoyment.
So you'll make great friends, you'll learn about yourself and the world, and you'll grow in all aspects of your life. And we'll be there with support along the way, with professionals like mentors, residence directors, counselors, security, and medical staff should the need arise.
