Sarah

I am a commuter at Marietta College. Being a commuter is very hard because most students live on campus. If the social aspect of college is something you want definitely live on campus. Overall, the campus is nice and the class sizes are small enough that your professor knows you by name (this is a plus)! The biggest downfall is the price of tuition.

Adam

It is a very nice campus to spend time on in the evenings. The landscape and building are very picturesque and make a great place to hang out. The Masters program I am in is very nice with wonderful professors and staff. I highly recommend the Marietta if tuition isn't an issue. The town it's self is very neat as well, lots of bike trails for the warmer months and small shops around town to explore, and of course bars.

Derek

It is a very great college I am glad to be a part of the community. The activities that are on campus are both fun and inviting to all. The academics of the college serve right to the price we pay as students. The on campus living is very suitable for the price that’s stated.

Savannah

Marietta College, in my opinion, is a great private college. They offer a wide range of academics, and support each academic equally. Their cafeteria is extensive, and their housing is cozy and comfortable as well as safe. If I had to recommend a good private college, I would recommend Marietta.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I have got a lot out of my college experience so far. I have become much more responsible and independent. The teachers treat you like adults and you are forced to grow up quickly. which is a good thing. My abilities get tested every day in class and I am pushed to reach my highest potential. I plan on attending law school after I graduate, a dream that most of my teachers back in high school thought was far-fetched. However, my professors at college incourage my aspirations and give me the confidence I need to be successful in achieving my goal. I have also met some amazing people from all around Ohio, as well as the nation and the world. I wouldn't trade my experience at college for anything.
