This past weekend, Marist welcomed hundreds of parents, siblings, grandparents, and relatives to campus for Family Weekend. As an annual Marist tradition, students were able to enjoy a fun-filled weekend with their families, while mingling with other families and members of the Marist community.
This year, activities included a scenic boat cruise of the Hudson River, a trip to the Dubois Apple Orchard, a winery tasting and tour in New Paltz, a bus trip to the walkway over the Hudson, and a food truck tailgate party. Other highlights of the weekend included Friday and Saturday night entertainment, on-campus activities such as the Marist Country Fair, a campus Mass followed by a barbecue on the Riverfront, and much more!
Overall, Family Weekend was a hit. Not to mention, the weather was absolutely perfect for all of these activities, creating a lasting impression on those who attended. Whether you are a freshman or senior, Family Weekend is an unforgettable experience. We hope you make it a tradition to attend Family Weekend every year – you won’t be disappointed!
