Marist Haikus, From Us to You

Marist is not like every other college.

And to show our new president, Dr. David Yellen, what makes Marist so special, we want the Marist Community to share their favorite things about the college in the most obvious way – a haiku, of course! We want you to throw it back to your days in middle school Language Arts classes where you were first introduced to the haiku. As a reminder, a haiku is a 17-syllable poem containing three phrases of five, seven, and five syllables per phrase. Check out a couple of examples below, and don’t forget to thank your teachers for showing you the way to the perfect haiku:



Time to get your creative juices flowing!

To submit a haiku and see it featured on our blog, post a comment below with your name and relationship to Marist or send to
