Marist College is a comprehensive college with liberal arts tradition located “on the Hudson River” that is gaining a national reputation. The students enjoy the “small class sizes,” “Catholic underpinning” (the school was founded as a Catholic school but is no longer officially associated with the church), and “proximity to New York City.” Located in Poughkeepsie, NY, Marist is only “an hour and a half away from NYC,” providing plenty of opportunities for internships, jobs, and excursions to the greatest city in the world. Students also boast about the “excellent alumni network” and “very strong study abroad program.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
