The Morgan Center: Still Going the Extra Mile

LONG ISLAND, NY—The Morgan Center still continues to work wonders for children diagnosed with cancer.  If you don’t remember, The Morgan Center is the first ever pre-school for children with cancer in America. It is located on Long Island, New York, created and named after Morgan Zuch, a current sophomore at Marist College. When Zuch was just two and a half years old, she was diagnosed with Leukemia and because the chemotherapy was so strong, Zuch was not able to live life like a normal pre-school child. Unfortunately, this is the usual situation for children diagnosed with cancer and are undergoing chemotherapy. To make a long story short, The Morgan Center was started up shortly after Zuch finished chemotherapy and was declared free of cancer. This pre-school is specially designed for young children who went through exactly what Morgan had to go through, but gives them the closest chance they’ll ever get to having a normal childhood.  The pre-school was started by Zuch’s parents and is over the years growing to become an amazing organization.

Just Lock Your Doors

POUGHKEEPSIE N.Y.–  Right up the street from the campus of Marist College is a newly built suit style apartment building, “Fox Run at Fulton.” These apartment style suites are filled with mostly Marist students along with a few public residents. Although these apartments are filled with a majority of Marist students, it is considered off-campus living. Marist does rent out one floor in Fox Run for Marist students, because of a new building not being built on time for this semester.

Quiet Cove Closed For Construction

Poughkeepsie, NY — Quiet Cove Riverfront Park is located on the west side of Route 9 in the Town of Poughkeepsie, just past the north entrance of the Marist College campus. The park used to only be available to Hudson River psychiatric center residents, until Duchess County purchased it.

Students can go to the park to walk the trails, have lunch, fish, or just hang out by the water of the Hudson River. Continue reading

Netflix and… Learn?

It’s Thursday night, but you don’t want to go out and you have no homework due before the weekend. The perfect solution: watch a movie with your professors… yes, I said your professors.  Jeff Bass, Media and Production professor at Marist College, started the event Faculty Favorites in 2014 after a screening theatre was built into the Lowell Thomas Communications building.  Faculty Favorites is meant “to expand the film repertoire of students. I think it has a benefit for students and also I just think it’s a heck of a lot of fun” says Bass.
