Hello! If you are reading this article you have probably went to, or are attending Marist College. However if you are like me towards the end of my senior year in high school, you are probably reading this and figuring out or day dreaming about this school. Well whether you are looking for a walk down memory lane, or looking to create new memories, you have probably or will experience these things. Here are 20 Signs you go to Marist!
1. You have Marist Sunsets on Your Instagram
Let’s face it, if you’re an alum or current student, you’ve got ’em. There’s no shame in showing off your school, especially when it’s this beautiful. I mean who can blame you?
2. Welcome Week/Move-In Day
Every school has their traditions for the first week of school. The first day is move-in day where upperclassmen help freshmen move into their dorms. Move in day is stressful (and very hot, its still summer!) so upperclassmen help freshmen move into their dorms. The week following is welcome week where you participate in several activities on campus. From outdoor movies to fireworks over the Hudson, welcome week is so much fun!
3. You’ve Been to a Broadway Show
That’s something else that has probably popped up on your Instagram. Being so close to the city Marist Spc offers trips to a Broadway show. For $25 you get a ticket and transportation is included. The shows range from Lion King to Book of Mormon so they are pretty good. In addition you get some time to explore the city.

What beach means to others: A place by the ocean with a lot of sand.
What beach means to Marist students: A beautiful area to hang out with your friends.
6. You’ve seen plenty of animals at Marist
From tease to groundhogs, is there any reason why they wouldn’t want to hang out here?

12. Went for a Walk by the River
On a nice warm day, you will either find students at the Marist beach or down by the river.

It comes with living in a dorm. Between having fire drills set up to people burning popcorn and easy mac, its easy to find yourself stuck in the cold due to a fire alarm going off.
