Why I decided to do the Marist Summer Pre-College Program: I was interested in seeing more of Marist campus. I knew in the long run it would benefit me because I could earn 3 college credits.
Best part of my experience: First, my classmates. The best part of the summer program is making new friends. Throughout this program I got close with people from around the world. I still keep in contact with the friends I made at this program. When I stated as a freshman at Marist it made me feel comfortable that I already had friends from the summer program. My best friends currently at Marist is a girl I met at the summer program.
Second, I would say the academic program. This program allowed me to take an elective my first semester freshman year since I already covered the Bus 101 credits. Earning three credits allows you to have a head start your Major. I also met extremely nice professors who gave me letters of recommendation.
Would I recommend the Marist Pre-College Program to someone else? I would definitely recommend this program because it was a fun experience and I got to meet new people along with getting a head start in my education.
Did this program help in the college search process? Yes, for me it made it very clear that Marist was the campus I wanted to live on for the next four years of my life. It was clean, pretty and safe just what I was looking for.
Did this program help you prepare/transition into college? Yes, it gave me a good taste of how it would be to live on my own and helped me adjust and adapt to new surroundings and people.
