Marietta College Reviews
When I attended MC, it was nearly perfect. The student body was incredibly involved and respectful of one another—from athletes to Greeks to independents—and you would likely find yourself actively involved in several different clubs and hanging with a variety of friend groups (it's small, so it can't be cliquey). Professors truly go above and beyond—increasing your intellectual curiosity is not the only thing that drives them. They want you to succeed in life, no matter your political philosophy or outside interests, in fact, they take the time to get to know you as an individual, and will not hesitate to call you out on your crap (which you need sometimes when you are 18-22). The administration has changed A LOT over the last couple of years (killing some of the soul that made Marietta awesome), but they have responded by turning the reigns over to a leadership team that has their sights set on making Marietta the place it should and ALWAYS should have been.
I could not be happier with my experience at Marietta College thus far, it was easy to find professors who genuinely care about me and about my success. There are lots of ways to get involved and the library will become one of your best friends during stressful times with its quiet study atmosphere. It's also crazy fun to go to the basketball and baseball games!
College is what you make of it so if you're looking to stay in your dorm all day and night, you won't like it anywhere. Marietta has many more opportunities than most other schools because of its small class sizes and residency requirement. You can easily find ways to get deeply connected to studies, friends, organizations, and the community.
