The Marietta Effect
Chrysten Regelski '13
Major: Athletic Training
Minor: Health Communication
Additional Education: Old Dominion University, Master’s in Athletic Training
Hometown: Arcanum, Ohio
Clubs/Organizations: Sigma Kappa, Marietta College Athletic Training Student Organization (MCATSO)
Education Abroad: I spent two weeks in Sydney, Australia, with eight other Athletic Training majors. I wanted to go on this trip because I knew that it would set me apart both in my search for graduate schools and jobs. Not many students in sports medicine get the opportunity to study abroad because our field of study doesn’t really translate to other countries like political science or leadership.
When did you know Marietta College was the right school for you?
The first time I visited. It just felt like home.
Favorite Marietta moment?

What impact did Marietta College have on your career?
It gave me great connections that will last a lifetime. I’m in graduate school now and I still am able to reach out to my fellow classmates and professors when doing research for assignments, for encouragement, or just to catch up.
What does it mean to be a Pioneer?
It’s a lot like being a part of a big family. It’s coming together to support teams in competition, each other in times of need, and being proud of where you’ve come from and what you accomplished during your time at Marietta. It’s being able to say that you’re a part of The Long Blue Line and cherishing the memories you made on the journey to become a part of it while making new ones with the people you met along the way.
