Student Works

In addition to our undergraduate internship program, the Hudson River Valley Institute benefits from the work of students in Marist College's Hudson Valley History Course. We are proud to present the student work below as introductory or supplemental material for anyone investigating these topics. Each project contains the names of the students who produced them, as well as references for the information and any images used. Many of the projects also include lesson plans which are oriented around a field trip to the site associated with each topic.
