10 Classic Sightings You’ll Only Catch At Marist College During Spring Semester

Are they trying to get a picture of that groundhog over there? Yup.

Every campus has their famous and most favorite things to see. Here are some of Marist's!

1. Geese

On almost every large patch of grass or snow, there’s a flock of geese. Crossing the sidewalks or chasing after each other, the geese are everywhere, all the time, and every day. You can count on seeing at least one group every day walking to class. But be careful--they’re not too friendly.

2. Occasional snow, even if it was 72 degrees the previous day

It was a tease. The one day when everyone pulls out their best spring clothes. Then, two days later and there’s a snowstorm.

3. People sunbathing on the Marist beach

It doesn’t matter if you have a paper to write or a test to study for, you can do it under the sun on the Marist beach! If it’s greater than 65 degrees outside and the sun’s high in the sky, the beach is the place to be. There’s frisbee, baseball, sunbathing, and all your favorite friends outside socializing and procrastinating!

4. Friendly squirrels

As soon as it gets a little warmer out, the squirrels get a bit friendlier and dare to venture out to the trees. They’ll come pretty close to you, especially if you have some nuts in your hand!

5. Scared groundhogs

Other than the Marist Fox, Marist is famous for their groundhogs; they’re the cutest little furry lumps! They’re pretty afraid of the students though, especially if we try to take pictures with them.

6. Worms sprawled over the sidewalks after a day of rain

It's gross, I know. But it happens. Once it’s over 60 degrees and the April showers hydrate the campus, the worms come out and cover the sidewalks. It’s hard not to miss them while walking to class! They’re everywhere!

7. The most unforgettable sunsets

It's typical Marist. You’ll see at least three beautiful, picture-worthy sunsets every week! And everyone will stop what they’re doing just to take a picture! The best views are from the library too.

8. Dock pictures

With warmer weather, cuter outfits, and the sun shining, the modeling pics come out too. The best places to strike a pose around Marist is the dock by the river! It’s the perfect setting to make it look “casual."

9. Puppy Snapchats

Finally, once the sun comes out, so do the puppies! Then everyone has to put on the story how they saw a puppy or, you know, it didn’t happen.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
