What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
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.
Matthew from Dublin, OH
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.
