Marissa Marino

Marisa Marino

As a first-generation college student, Marissa Marino felt out-of-place on campus. She sensed she knew even less than other students whose parents didn’t attend college.

So, Marino sought somewhere to connect. That led her to the Office of Student Life, where she eventually became an Eagle Guide — a peer leader for new students.
