Marist Splash

We would like to let you know that we will be hosting Marist Splash on Saturday, April 2, 2016. We encourage you to pass along this information to your students who may be interested.
What is Splash? Splash is a student-run initiative that invites students, grades 7-12, to participate in a one-day relaxed academic environment. It is an opportunity for both middle school and high school students to experience a college setting by taking classes of their choosing taught by current Marist students. Not only will they be learning more about topics ranging from building computers to juggling, they will also have a chance to interact with current students and ask any questions about the college experience and life at Marist!
