They are building
Marist College with their own hands - for the chance to build men
with their own hands.
Marist Brothers started a brick - by - brick success story at Marist
College long before the first student sweated an exam in 1957. Designing,
mixing, hoisting, painting - supplying the muscle as
well as the money - they built Marist College.
First grew the
Gymnasium/Auditorium in 1949 with a saving of $124,000 in costs.
Next, the do - it - yourselfers sliced $142,000 from the cost of
the campus chapel. Soon after came the dormitory, administration
building, student lounge, classroom and library building.
By 1960, the
Brothers had completed six major construction projects for $1,345,000
- saving the school $1,709,000 in costs. Now they've got a ten -
year expansion plan in the works, and they need your financial help.
THEY DO IT?
One reason -
to teach. They offer a challenge and an opportunity for intellectual,
social, moral, and physical improvement.
students take up this challenge every year to reach their fullest
potenial in both their public and private lives.
This is the real
labor of Marist college, the building of men.
