Marietta College is a small, private liberal arts college that was founded in 1835. All first-year students are required to take a College Life and Leadership Laboratory course as well as a first-year seminar. Students can compete for places in the Investigative Studies Program to share their undergraduate research on All Scholars Day each spring, or take part in the McDonough Leadership Program, a unique offering at Marietta, featuring comprehensive leadership training.
Marietta is a great place for a student that is outgoing and loves to get involved. The key to a great college career at Marietta is to be involved early and often.

Marietta is the diamond of the Ohio Valley with its New England style campus; the construction of new buildings - and renovation of old - continue to show its life for over 175 years. The tightly-knit student community is woven through participation in science clubs, student senate, collegiate and recreational athletics, work-study jobs, volunteer and leadership opportunities, Greek life, musical and theatrical participation and school-planned trips. Academics challenge students and students have plenty of opportunities to apply their knowledge to real-life problems, situations and projects; the liberal arts aspect of Marietta brings in sections of each sphere of academia to each student, leading to a richer and more fulfilling undergraduate experience.
