“I told myself I wasn’t going to like Marietta because it’s a completely different environment. It turns out that I love being somewhere new, and knowing more people than not. I honestly believe I’ve grown as a person. I’m much more open to trying new things, and now realize the thrill of putting yourself out there. Marietta is preparing and challenging me in all the right ways while giving me the independence I need, knowing it'll always have my back.”

December: End of Fall 2019 Semester


Hi everybody, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I’m so excited that finals week is over, but so grateful for my opportunities at Marietta College! YOU make these opportunities happen for myself and all other students at the College. Your contributions mean so much to us and also allow us to prove that we are capable of making The Long Blue Line proud!

Thank you so much for everything you do for us! I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. (2020! That’s so crazy!)

Say hello to Bella or make a gift in her honor.

November: Thanksgiving


I have a couple of questions for you...Yes, you! What are you thankful for this year? What is your favorite dish at Thanksgiving dinner? What's the craziest thing that happened around Thanksgiving when you were at Marietta College? Send me an email and let me know!

I am so thankful for the opportunities that I have been given at the College because of YOU! One of my most recent opportunities was joining Chi Omega; I love all my sorority sisters already!

Thanksgiving is such an important time of the year! Family is so important to me and I'm beyond excited to see my dad's side of the family & finally get a break from all of the homework! 

I hope your month has been great so far and of course, Happy Turkey Day!!

October: Remembering Homecoming


Homecoming this past weekend was AMAZING!! I had the best time this year! If you were able to come, I’m so glad you did and I hope we were able to chat. If not, I recommend highly consider coming next year, so that you don't miss out on all of the good times and new memories! It was so exciting to watch the football game & support my fellow Pios!!!

An Introduction


Hey! My name is Bella Lopez and I'm one of four Student Ambassadors this year!

I'm originally from Syracuse, New York and I'm a sophomore. After recording this video, I changed my major from journalism to strategic communication with an English minor, and I’m hoping to add on a certificate in health communication as well.

Outside of class, you can find me working in the campus mailroom. I’ve been working there since the first week I got on campus! I'm so excited for the year ahead and cannot wait to share it with all of you!

Welcome Bella or make a gift in her honor. Learn more about his fellow Ambassadors, Robert, Ashley and Orv.
