Attended a conference on the grounds of the school. The view over the Hudson is spectacular. The food service was efficient but fairly standard. Sadly they seated us away from the windows that overlooked the Hudson. The organization and assignment of rooms was somewhat confusing.

My son now attends Marist after years of visiting the campus. The views of the river are spectacular and the architecture is amazing. Bring your lunch and sit down at the Marist beach or eat in their new cafeteria (looks like Hogwarts). Since the college is on the Hudson River you will see plenty of activity between the large ships... More

I attend this school. Marist is held with very high regard in the Hudson Valley. If you are coming to visit, the campus is absolutely beautiful!

Try and stop by during the warmer months. Gardens are awesome and the river view is beautiful. Take in some history and a stroll

Made a presentation at the college (building #15), which was beautiful and modern and extremely technologically-equipped. Helpful staff too. Good experience.

The Marist College Library may be worth attending Marist for. It has a beautiful view of the Hudson River and is clean and quiet and wonderful. They also redid a lot of the campus, and down by the river is a beautiful place to visit. It's also located near so many historical gems, lots of things to do and visit.

Marist just completed their new dining hall, and it is magnificent! One of the eating areas feels just like Hogwarts!

So beautiful nestled on the Hudson River. What a gem and such a great education. Great value for the money and a nice size school for having so much to do and so many wonderful opportunities! These graduates ought to do well in life.

I went to see this college just for fun, during the weekend. The buildings are really great. It is by the Hudson and has a nice place to stay there in the grass. There were lots of students playing sports and training. It was a nice place to know.
