Office of Academic Affairs

Karyn Sproles

Welcome to the intellectual heart of Marietta College. College is a time to explore as well as a time to prepare for a prosperous future. At Marietta College we strive to help our students develop the knowledge and skills that will lead to success in the classroom, the work world, and in all aspects of life. My great hope is that students will find their passion and follow it into a future they create for themselves.

To be educated requires a pioneering spirit. I hope our students will seek out what is new: learn a new language, study abroad, conduct research with a faculty mentor, perform service learning, take a class in a subject they know nothing about, explore the Legacy Library. The faculty and staff members in Academic Affairs are all here as guides in the exciting journey of intellectual exploration that we hope will never end—for us as well as for our students. At Marietta College, academics partner with all areas of the College to ensure that academic and co-curricular experiences are a rich and rewarding preparation for a future career and life guided by the pioneering spirit that founded Marietta College.

Be Brave. Be Curious. Be creative. Be entrepreneurs. Be scholars.

Be Pioneers.
