Sage advice from seniors to underclassman

As the fall semester is coming to a close, seniors are reflecting on their college experience. For some the close of this semester means their final goodbyes to Marist and for others next semester will be their last. After spending four years at Marist seniors have insightful pieces of advice for the current underclassman following in their footsteps.

“It takes a while for Marist to feel like home. Just because you are feeling uncomfortable and homesick doesn’t mean you made the wrong decision about what college to go to.
