The Marist College Student Booster Club was founded in April 2009 by a pair of individuals who looked to increase attendance and school spirit at all home sporting events. The Student Booster Club quickly became one of Marist's biggest clubs, with it's second semester roster coming in at over 1,050 people. Alongside the Marist College Band, the Marist College Dance Team and the Marist College Cheerleaders, the Student Booster Club is a part of making the atmosphere at all sporting events a place to be when any Marist sporting team has a home game.
On October 23, 2009, the Marist College Student Booster Club officially unveiled and announced the Foxhole, a re-branding of the past student section at the James J. McCann Center. The Student Booster Club helps ensure that the Foxhole is a feared section for all opponents in every sport.
In the Fall of 2010, Marist Athletics along with the Student Booster Club unveiled the name "Red Fox Nation" to encompass the student body fan base including the Band, Cheerleaders and Dance Team.
The Marist Student Booster Club is Marist’s official student fan club. Along with the Band, the Dance Team and the Cheerleaders, we are Red Fox Nation. The Student Booster Club provides students the opportunity to show their school spirit at Marist Athletic events while interacting with their peers.
"This is an unbelievable atmosphere. It made me want to go back and have some eligibility back. And I want to play and I want to go to Marist College to play. It's unbelievable here. Your students -- so refreshing. On college campuses across the country, there is student apathy when it comes to sports. And not here. Everybody was here and involved from warm-up to the final buzzer of overtime. It was just a fantastic atmosphere for women's college basketball and we feel honored to be a part of it." -Oklahoma Head Coach Sherri Coale
