I am still without housing because all safe neighborhoods cost at least 2000/month. The staff can be very rude and unhelpful. I am not able to receive mail at school (even though I have no address and need to have a textbook mailed to me) because I don't live on campus. (I am currently staying in a hotel until I can find a safe place to live.). I do not recommend anyone going to this school.

My main point I want to bring out is the way the school is run by the administration really sucks. There are some policies that just baffle me from my 4 years here. I just want to let people know what any time you intend to pick up the phone or go in person to Student Financial Services or Housing that those women (mostly women work in those depts.) are the rudest people you will ever meet. They do not care about you and will yell at you for being incompetent because you asked a question. I cannot tell you how many times i entered those offices with general queries and been told to my face I need to leave because I don't understand the "rules" These women are ruthless and really give Marist a bad name. This is mostly just a warning for parents or students who have to or about to deal with these women in Financial Services or Housing. Good Luck and just ignore them!

Originally, I was set on going to Babson College or Bentley University. But, on accepted students day I immediately felt that I was in the right place.

Marist challenged me to come out of my shell and push myself so hard. The professors demand you grow up and do not throw around excuses to get out of work.

The nightlife at Marist is more than I could ever ask for. There is always a lot to do. We have a small greek life. But, it is more than enough to give those who want to be in it satisfaction. There are a lot of clubs and bars that let freshman in. Also, a lot of sports teams throw huge parties.

Housing freshman year obviously sucks (it's supposed to). Sophomore year and beyond offers students kitchens and living room areas. Marist uses priority point systems to give students housing based on their involvement with the school, grades, and disciplinary history. Many people complain about priority points. Priority points push us to join clubs that we otherwise wouldn't. But, these clubs and leadership positions give Marist students an edge over average students who get involved a lot less.
