    It has been nice to be here! Coming from a very small town, Marietta has been a nice stepping stone for me to get used to larger populations. The teachers work very hard to help you, I have not come across any faculty member that would not greet you with a smile after some recognition! They are very flexible for office hours and for if you just want to talk! Some are the dorms are nice sized, but in freshman housing, prepare to burn alive in the summer and winter. The classes are intense, I have thankfully been getting by, but I had no idea how hard some of them would be. The food is okay, and Greek life is present but not pushy. A nice small college with a close knit community.

    This was my first time attending a four year college (I previously attended a two year community college) so a lot of things differed greatly between the two schools and therefore caught me by surprise. The first being the cost. I knew ahead of time that Marietta was expensive but seeing the actual bill really through me for a loop and honestly made me reconsider schools. I think they could honestly lower the cost for several things, namely room and board, since the prices are a bit much considering that the dorm is being shared with one or three other people and meals probably aren't that much even with two semesters.
    Marietta College is providing me with a high-quality education in a welcoming environment. The administration and faculty are very encouraging and friendly!
