“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.”

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.
