  • I believe this is a Christian or even Catholic college. Its location is beautiful, right on the east bank of Hudson River. You can actually reach the river from the collage grounds.  more »

  • Marist College is a great school and is better than Quinnipiac University. QU hates Indian people. At least Marist College respects India. I have first hand experience of Quinnipiac University. QU will discriminate if your Indian, Chinese, Black. They hate people of color (Especially Brown people-Indians). The only reason QU has South Asian students on campus is because the racist Higher Authorities want their money. John Lahey, Mark Thompson, Donald Weinbach, Dianna Pategas, Edgar Rodriguez, Lynn Bushnell, and John Morgan are at fault for all the racism that happens on the QU campus. The QU Higher Authorities mentioned above hate people of color (Especially Brown people-Indians and Muslims). In reality the QU Higher Authorities and Matt Conway Conway and Stoughton QU's Attorney hate people from India. Matt Conway QU's Attorney wrote a death threat letter addressed to a QU Indian Alumni ending his life. The QU Indian alumni's mother and father were also present and threatened by Matt Conway and Dianna Pategas Associate VP of Alumni Affairs at the CCHRO Central Office in Hartford, CT. QU's Attorney is ignorant, a bully, malicious, two faced, shady, erratic, disturbed, unprofessional, corrupt, dishonest, negative, rude, and racist toward Indians. Matt Conway and Paul Stoughton manage an unethical law firm. Conway voted for Donald Trump. He supports the immigration ban and Donald Trump name calling every Black NFL player "SOB's". He has a disdain for Indians. A Quinnipiac University Indian Alumni floored him on the Connecticut General Statutes and Title II Public Accommodation Civil Rights Act of 1964 in the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities. He is incompetent and has no clue on World Views, National Origin, Creed, and Race. Attorney Conway lost a National Origin discrimination case against a QU Indian Alumni in 2015. Unsuccessful in defending a National Origin Discrimination (India) claim and failed to get a "No Reasonable Cause"(administrative dismissal) determination in CCHRO during the Mandatory Mediation Conference for his client Quinnipiac University. 82 allegations were filed against his client John Lahey President, Mark Thompson EVP, Donald Weinbach VP of Alumni Affairs, Dianna Pateags Associate VP of Alumni Affairs, Edgar Rodriguez Chief of Public Safety Quinnipiac University for discriminating, harassing, provoking, bullying, extorting, blackmailing, and threatening an Indian alumni's life. Indian National Origin discrimination complaint easily passed a CCHRO Merit Assessment Review. Complainant's CCHRO Lengthy Affidavit and Rebuttal was much stronger than Quinnipiac University's weak response. The QU Indian Alumni and the Indian family pointed out in CCHRO that National Origin discrimination against Indians does exist at Quinnipiac University and in the small little law firm of Conway and Stoughton. Matt Conway wrote a threatening letter to end a QU Indian Alumni's life thinking that it would solve the problem. It made the problem worse for his client QU. Down below is a comment from the Quinnipiac University google page. A pattern of National Origin discrimination toward Indian people does exist at Quinnipiac University. Vinay Patel 5 reviews · 2 photos a week ago The faculty and campus are amazing, but something about the University itself is off-putting. The lack of any diversity may be a problem but the fact that they group ethnic students together on purpose with housing is extremely concerning. Also extremely expensive and the meal plan is limited as well.
  • Could not have asked for a better college experience between the education, student life, and breathtakingly beautiful campus and views
  • This school exploits women sexually. Do not waste your time. Dutchess colleges are overrated. Also non christian catholic denominations. Parents hide your daughters.
  • Been there once to rent a car--seems really not diverse and the school doesn't seem to care about diversity and inclusion.
  • Marist provided me with a great education with mostly fantastic professors. I worked three great inter ships using the school's connections with the community as well. Finally, the location on the Hudson is the best around during all four seasons.
