Spending your first year abroad is not for everyone. It takes a special person to challenge themselves, to break the mold of a traditional first-year experience, and to explore the world in a unique way. Marist has been sending first-year students abroad for over a decade, and the positive feedback from students, parents, faculty, and employers is overwhelming evidence that these experiences have a life-changing impact on participants. If you are a student that is looking for an opportunity to distinguish yourself from your peers, to gain a greater understanding of the world in which you live, and secure memories and experiences that will last a lifetime, then one of our unique First-Year Abroad programs is right for you.
