'Big Brothers' And 'Big Sisters' Get Discount Tuition At Marist College

Participating in Big Brothers Big Sisters can be emotionally rewarding, but at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., that experience is about to become financially rewarding, too.

Beginning this fall, Marist will discount its tuition by 25 percent for members of three local Big Brothers Big Sisters chapters who enroll in graduate or adult undergraduate programs. (Those Hudson Valley chapters include Dutchess, Orange and Ulster counties.) Additionally, the college will waive its application fees for program participants.
