3 Student Reviews of Marist College

  • Time for the only honest review! Marist, in short, is not that fun. At all.

    If you want to have fun, the only place you can go to are the three bars (Darby’s, Union, River). There are no frats that host regularly, your best chance is 2-3 frat parties your entire freshman year, max (there’s also only one frat with a house). When you go to a bar though, you’ll have to drop 30 bucks A NIGHT minimum. Why? They all collude and jack up their prices.

    But is that really all the fun you can have here? Yes lol. Clubs are nothing special, they’re comparable to the ones in highschool. Poughkeepsie is basically a no-go zone, definitely not a place where anybody goes.

    Security is basically the gestapo. They have a policy in which they may enter your unlocked room at will and take a look around for anything. Not just that but they’re extremely inconsistent, sometimes people with fakes get let go but others can go to prison!

    DO NOT BELIEVE YOUR TOUR GUIDES. They lie about every damn detail they can sell you on! It’s a business, not a school.

    So you’re confined to a small space on a river with nowhere else to go but three bars and maybe a couple houses if you lucky. You will end up broke, just like your parents who shell out 50k a year for this, and unhappy about your choice. I would suggest staying as far away from this place as possible.

    Pretty campus, but who cares?

    Just wanted to add that there is zero school spirit.

  • the previous comment was obviously made by a dumb slut. Marist sucks. the teachers are full of themselves, and you only will pass 200+ lvl classes if you suck up. not joking. I’ve gotten many A’s and F’s, the only difference being in how much I sucked up. Buy gold instead.

  • Marist is the best college ever! Fun time. i had plenty of drunk nights and miserable mornings. I feel sorry for those who didn’t experience toucans and mccoys, but hey, still a fun time. the people are fun. if you get a B or lower, you really shouldn’t have even been accepted into marist in the first place because its not hard to get A’s… just do your work and don’t be dumb. hotness factor… men are def at an advantage. also, pay the extra $3 for a cab, its not worth roaming around po-town getting lost and in danger. Oh and another plus, I got a job right out of college. woo hoo. Go bed foxes… i mean red foxes!

    Overall Score: (4.72/5.00)
