What if I haven't decided on a major yet?
Students can enter Marietta College in one of two ways. You can declare a major or come in as Exploratory with interest areas. Many students choose the latter option in order to give themselves time to explore the various majors and minors available. For more info about entering as an Exploratory Student, download this Fact Sheet or see the For Undecided Students page on the First-Year Student website.
What do students do for fun?
We have more than 80 active clubs and organization on campus. They include academic/professional clubs, community service organizations, honor societies, governing bodies, media/publications, religious offerings, sports/recreational clubs, Greek organizations and a variety of multicultural and special interest groups such as the Charles Sumner Harrison Organization, Student Global AIDS Campaign, Independent Musicians Club and many others.
And if you can't find what you are looking for already on campus, you can start your own organization.
