Brand Rep Program

 

The River + Stone brand rep program started as a marketing tool to spread the word about the brand throughout campus. We gathered students from all majors, years, and locations to create a smaller representation of Marist College. Their job is simple: have both spirit and drive while spreading the word about our unique, trendy, collegiate clothing brand. This semester we have 20 energetic reps who are just as excited about these products as those who created them.

I’m a second year English major in the pre-law program from Las Vegas, Nevada. Outside of class, I am Vice President of FEMME Club, a member of the Women’s Rugby team, and a Campus Ministry volunteer. I wanted to be a brand rep so I could represent my school with pride!

I’m majoring in Communications with a double concentration in Advertising and Public Relations with an emphasis in Business. I’m on the board of the Ambassador program and I’m a student assistant to two of the admissions counselors in the office. I’m going abroad to London in the spring which I’m very excited for. I became a brand rep because I wanted to get more involved with MPorium and learn more ways about how to market yourself.

Favorite River +Stone Product: Red Fox Nation v neck tee

Hi everyone! My name is Stephani Schell and I am a Junior from Northwest Ohio! Here at Marist I am a Fashion Merchandising major concentrating in Fashion Promotion and a Public Relations Minor. On campus I am super busy with being an executive board member of the Ambassadors club, a tour guide, a member of the sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma, and of course, a River + Stone brand rep! One of my favorite things about being a brand rep is that I am able to promote clothes that are made by the Marist Fashion students. When I am not busy around campus, you will find me playing with my dogs Max and Mia and making delicious guacamole.

Hey there, I’m Brooke DiPalma and I am a junior (eep!) studying Journalism and Public Relations, with a minor in Political Science. Right now, I am most excited to be studying abroad in Florence, Italy this fall! While at Marist, I try to be a part of the community by getting involved wherever I can. I am an active member of the Student Government Association and a  member of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority. I also work at the Marist Institute for Public Opinion as a Head Coach. From the moment I learned about the Mporium Brand Rep program-I dreamed of being a part of it. To have the opportunity to represent this unique, student-run program has been an honor and a ton of fun!

Favorite River +Stone Product: DJM t-shirt and Spirit Jersey

Hello! My name is Gina Jadelis, and I am currently a junior studying Public Relations with a minor in Fashion Merchandising and American Studies. The best thing about Marist is MPorium! It’s where I spend a majority of my time (and my money). I love how it is a multi-teared program which offers students valuable work experience. I know when I buy a River + Stone product, I am supporting not only Marist, but the fashion program as well. Plus, who doesn’t want to sport their red fox spirit in style? When I’m not shopping at MPorium or Instagramming, I am hanging out with my sisters of Sigma Sigma Sigma or finding the most fashionable kids on campus for CollegeFashionista. But most important, my River + Stone spirit jerseys (yes multiple) are my favorite product. Whether I’m wearing them with jeans, or leggings, to class or out to dinner they are the most comfortable shirts ever!

Hi! My name is Frank Caponegro and I am from Garden City, NY. Here at Marist I currently live in Midrise on the first floor and love it tremendously. Marist is my home away from home, and I love every second I have to walk this campus and experience the college in every way possible. Long walks down to the river, late nights in Lowell Thomas, and giving tours to prospective families are just a few of the many things that are amazing about this campus, and I can’t wait to do them for the two years I have left her

Favorite River +Stone Product: Marist College Cardigan

I am a Junior at Marist College, a Political Science Major with a Sociology Mionor, as well as getting my Paralegal Certification. I am part of the Pre-Law club on campus, as well as an Ambassador, tour guide, and work at Student Financial Services. The reason I chose to become a brand rep was because I absolutely love Marist College and everything it does. I wanted to be able to support our fashion students with the amazing work they do, and be able to brag about how amazing they to other people outside of the Marist Community. Being a Brand Rep allows me to show my pride for the work that is produces on our campus.

I work at the Help Desk and also as a Tour Guide.  For the Fall of 2016, I will be studying abroad in London, England! In my limited free time, I am either re-watching House of Cards for the third time or eating just about anything. But most importantly, my favorite River+Stone item has to be the grey RedFox t-shirt because it is such an iconic and classic symbol of Marist!

Favorite River +Stone Product: Red Fox Brewery beer-proof t-shirt

I’m currently a senior, majoring in criminal justice and minoring in psychology. I’ll also be attending Marist for grad school, pursuing my masters in public administration. I’m a member of the D1 Cross Country and Track teams at Marist, as well as a board member (sports liaison) for Autism Speaks U, a representative for men’s Cross Country in the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), a tour guide, event staff/desk worker for athletics, and a tutor. I joined the Brand Reps to experience something different from my normal routine at school. Joining the Brand Reps has helped me to meet so many great people both inside and outside of the fashion department, and from being one of the original members, I have seen and helped the growth of this great program over the years. It’s definitely been a great experience for me, and I know that the other reps feel the same way.
