Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) Club
As a Graduate Of the Last Decade, you are one of the newest members of the Long Blue Line. You are the example of the quality of education that Marietta College delivers. The Marietta College GOLD Club is designed to highlight you, our most recent alumni, and to recognize you for giving back so soon after graduating. By becoming a member of the Gold Club you have a golden opportunity to make a difference to your alma mater and in the lives of current and future Marietta College students.
While you were attending Marietta College, alumni, parents and friends of the College were generously contributing to the Marietta Fund, which funded scholarships, equipped the classrooms and laboratories, purchased computers and books, and provided for campus activities. In addition, those gifts to the Marietta Fund helped bridge the gap between the tuition you paid and the actual cost of your education.
Please consider joining the GOLD Club today, by making a gift to the Marietta Fund. Your participation in the Marietta Fund is very important – even more important than how much you give. Your support shows that you understand the value of a college education, and every gift can help someone else reach his or her goal of a Marietta College degree.
Even with a few ups and downs and bumps in the road along the way, I had a great four years at Marietta College! I think that future students who want the same personalized, small college experience that I had, should be given the same opportunity.
Without financial aid, scholarships and my campus job, I would not have been able to attend MC. My experience was made possible by alumni giving back to the Marietta Fund, and for that I am truly grateful.—Ann Keller '03
We built great memories during our time at Marietta and feel proud knowing that our annual leadership gift enables the next generation to enjoy the Marietta experience.- Andy ’00 and Bethany ’02 Brehm
I give back to the Marietta Fund every year on the anniversary of my graduation as I reflect on my college experience and the many opportunities to learn and grow as a student. I give because I want to continue the tradition for future students.-Angela M. Newcomer '02
Although I am a graduate student with limited funds, I want to support the Marietta Fund because Marietta College has not only given me a degree, but also many life experiences that are worth more than money. So if contributing even a small amount each year means that more students can have the chance of experiencing the (same) greatness that Marietta College has to offer, then to me, it is well worth it.-Elisabeth Kager '08
I think that giving back is vital. It shows an appreciation for the great education and career opportunities offered to me, but it also allows new students the same life-changing experiences. Simply put, the Marietta Fund values the past and enables a future.-Rob Vazquez '09
