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 obsessed with my River & Stone water bottle. I take it everywhere I go, and it keeps my drinks cold for hours! Plus it’s a super cute and simple way to carry around and represent Marist.

Biography
Hey there, I’m Brooke DiPalma and I am a senior (in total denial) studying Journalism and Public Relations, with a minor in Political Science. Though I love being on campus, I’d give anything to be back in Florence, Italy at Gusta Pizza or Eduardo’s gelato by the Duomo. This past summer I interned at Yahoo! Finance, the best part – I had the chance to meet Kristen Bell, she’s just as cool as in the movies! This fall semester, I am an Investigative Unit at WABC-TV in New York City. While on campus, I love helping in anyway I can, but I’m most proud to be Sigma Sigma Sigma’s Vice President and a Head Coach at the Marist Poll. Also, thanks to the support of the Marist community, I have been able to bring the message of P.S. I Love You Day, my own non-profit organization, to campus. Be sure to celebrate with us by wearing purple on Feb

ruary 9th, 2018. I’m super excited to be a Brand Rep for the third year and cannot think of a better way to end my career here at Marist than repping the clothes I love! Be sure to say hey if you see me around campus 🙂

Biography

 

Hi everyone! My name is Victoria Bova and I’m a sophomore double majoring in Business Administration-Marketing and Communications-Advertising, with a minor in Psychology. When I’m not spending my time procrastinating on my work for my classes, trying to create an original recipe with the leftovers in my refrigerator, or just taking a nap, you can find me all around campus! As an Ambassador, an RA, and an avid club member for Fox P.A.W. and Red Ink (because I am lowkey obsessed with dogs and crafts), I tend to do a lot of running around. Being so active within the Marist community is actually what sparked my initial interest in the brand rep program for River+Stone. I figured that instead of going out in a typical Marist t-shirt, I could get my errands done in style with the selections created by my peers over in the fashion department. I am very excited to be able to promote this brand along with my love for Marist College, and I hope River+Stone has a very successful year!

Hey everyone! My name is Dom Fortino and I’m a junior from Pearl River, NY. I am a double major in Political Science and Spanish, I am part of the Marist Army ROTC program and was a former athlete for Marist’s XC/Track and Field team. If you don’t hear me running by your house early in the morning screaming loud cadences with my ROTC program, you’ll most likely see me at the gym vibing out to Eminem or Metallica. This past summer, I competed in my first bodybuilding competition at Albany and I loved every second of it! I love taking pictures in my free time in addition to reading classic literature. Right now I’m reading “Beyond Band of Brothers,” a book filled with memoirs from Major Dick Winters recalling his experience of participating in World War II with the 101st Airborne Division. I also used to write for “The Odyssey!” If you have any questions about which filter to use on your next instagram post or how to achieve your fitness goals, you know where to find me!
