Marietta College is excited to announce we are blazing a new trail with the addition of a virtual book club! Alumni and friends can connect with each other and enjoy fascinating books related to business, social issues, psychology and more. Participation is completely free. All you have to do is register and get a copy of the book to enjoy

You can sign up at or keep reading to learn more.

How it Works

The book club will connect through a private online forum where people can discuss the current book and network with each other. Joining the book club is completely free for alumni, you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy. The group will read a book every two months so you'll have plenty of time for each book. You can sign up and learn more here:

Why Should You Join?

There are three main reasons we hope you'll be excited to participate in one of our alumni book clubs:

  • Connect with Fellow Marietta College Alumni: Want to connect with intelligent, driven and interesting people? Joining the book club will introduce you to Marietta College Alumni across industries, generations and geographies to help you improve your network
  • Advance your Career: A professional book club enhances your career on two fronts. First, the books you read will make you more effective in areas critical to success like leadership, communication and productivity. Second, the network you'll be building can help you with career advice, introducing you to the right people and finding your next job
  • Reading is Good for You: Did you know business people who read at least seven business books per year earn over 230% more than people reading just one book per year? Or that reading improves your intelligence, reasoning ability and has been linked to reducing the chance of Alzheimer's? Joining one of our book clubs will help you read more and enjoy all the benefits that come with it
