Study Breaks, Re-imagined

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. — After a long weekend of procrastinating, accompanied by a mound of work steadily accumulating, Sunday strolls along and it’s crunch time. A case could be made that this is simply adding to the procrastination, but, according to ScienceDaily, taking a break from work actually increases overall productivity. Though it’s a fairly unknown club on Marist College’s campus, the Red Ink Club holds a prominent place in the lives of students who attend.

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.

Marist Men’s Soccer Fails to Qualify for MAAC Tournament

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – With their 0-0 draw against Rider on Saturday, the Marist Men’s soccer team has officially missed out on postseason play in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Though they still have one game left in the season, their points difference in the standings is out of reach, and their season will end earlier than the team would have hoped for.

The failure to make the postseason was expected for the Red Foxes, considering the scenarios that had to have played out in order for Marist to jump Iona and get into that final playoff spot. First, the Red Foxes had to win both of their final games. Second, Iona, who had only one game left on their schedule, had to lose to Canisius, as even a draw would make the gap in points too great to close. The Red Foxes’ fate was sealed just before their own game headed into overtime, as Iona managed a draw with Canisius, meaning they earned one point in the standings rather than zero. Marist also gained one point from their draw with Rider. Even if the Red Foxes defeat local rivals Siena on Wednesday, earning three points for the victory, they will still be one point behind Iona on the table. Continue reading

The Lab Lights That Don’t Turn Off.

Poughkeepsie NY– If you are on the Marist Campus anytime during the day or night you can see people diligently working in the Donnelly Labs. This is true, whether it is  3:00 am or 3:00 pm,  any day of the week or weekend. Who are they and what could they  be doing that late at night into the early morning? These Marist students are fashion design majors, working on projects designing their own clothes. Marist College has a very elite fashion department that is very difficult to get accepted into.
