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.

Favorite River+Stone Product

I have to say that my favorite River+Stone product is the beanie. It is a great addition to outfits in the Fall! Most worn River+Stone product? Any long-sleeve t-shirt! So comfortable.

Biography

Hi! My name is Muriel Chase and I’m a senior here at Marist. I’m majoring in Communications with a double concentration in Advertising and Public Relations with an emphasis in Business. I’m pretty involved on campus in various clubs so I’m around all the time! Being a brand rep has been amazing, River+Stone is such a special brand. Coming from a background that isn’t focused on fashion, I can tell you from my experience that MPorium has been able to intertwine many students interests so that we can all have our own interactions with this student-run enterprise. Come check it out and I’ll meet you there!

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 February 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 brand I love! Be sure to say hey if you see me around campus 🙂

My Beanie is my absolute favorite River+Stone attire. I wear my beanie EVERYWHERE. My friends can’t get me to take it off. I had my last one for two years, and it got a hole in it (saddest day of my life) but no worries, I got a new one at the end of the semester and I’ll be rocking it again!

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 am not spending my time procrastinating on my work for my classes, I am trying to create an original recipe with the leftovers in my refrigerator, or just taking a nap. You will be able to 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!
