Some Fun FAQ!
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So I just thought I would answer some questions about my school basic stuff, population size majors, club, stuff like that. Um, I don't know how many post grads we have, but it's not too many. Um, I think it's somewhere between one and two thousand, but I'm not positive. Um, the student body is very chill, relaxed, if that makes sense. Anything like super hype going on, Um, popular majors. Uh, it's a big majors that we have our digital media, fashion design, fashion merchandising and, um, athletic training and bio. So the science is a really big, um, specifically like bio bio med athletic training. Then we have a really good fashion program here. Fashion merch, um, and then digital media is a pretty popular major as well. Um, a lot of people that came in and science majors like Bio can have switched over to psychology by now. We have lots of majors here, but those are, I'd say like the main ones. Um, the sororities are asked he Kappa Kappa gamma tri cig and capital in Desai, um, frats. Um, it's not being in a sort of your fries, Not the be all and all here at Maris like it isn't some schools like they know what Southern schools. Um, Greek life does group glyph, cannon hands, your social life and your social experience here, But it does not create it. Um, I have most of my friends actually are not in Greek life. They love it here and have a great social lives. So it's definitely not like, beyond all you don't have to join one to have fun here. Um, nothing like, uh, I just join because I wanted more friends and I wanted to branch out, make friends with people, not in my major. Um, we also have, like, a ton of clubs here on campus. There's some fashion club's, um, those air. We do a little like kids production, like we did like Snow White the year before I got here. Um, in the last year, I was actually in, ah, Hansel and Gretel, and we basically do it for the kids in Poughkeepsie that go to elementary schools in Poughkeepsie, and they come on campus. The biggest one, I'd say, is Marist singers, which is like a choir here. Everyone really knows each other and, um, get to know each other, so that one is a lot of fun. Um, I would say that pretty much the best description I can give about, like social life and clubs and majors and stuff like that here at Marist. So I just wanted Teo give a little information on advice on a college APS. Um, it's a May biggest piece of advice is to make sure that your college essay stands out. Um, I know a lot of people did essays about, like, stereotypical kind of staff, like volunteer work. You really want something that'll make you stand out from the crowd. Um, I think the problem was like challenging an idea or something that you were taught something like that. I basically used crowd surfing and going to those concerts with people with lots of piercings and tattoos and crazy hair, um, to challenge my mother's belief that those concerts and people they're like there dwells almost with the fact that she taught me how that I should be accepting of everyone. If you don't choose us, we will still hold your application and your spot here at the school for one whole year if you don't go here and then decide to change your mind. So I really recommend writing about something that will really make you stand out from the crowd. I mean, who talks about going to crazy rock concerts and meeting people with sleeve tattoos or tattoo sleeves only saying, um, tattoo sleeves and Mohawks and like a bunch of face piercings and going crowds, everything and getting dropped from sixty nine year. Who writes about that in college essays? Not a lot of people, so it really made me stand out. If you really want to make yourself stand out from the crowd, do something that only you can write about. So that's my biggest piece of advice, and I hope you use it because it really, really works. I think it just makes you look really cool and makes colleges really want you. I hope you guys use it because it really works for me. Um, I don't think there's anything specific for Marist, other than if you're applying toe like the fashion design program of the art program you really want, like a good portfolio. Um, but other than that, it's my biggest piece of the face for getting into school.
