May Update

Hello everyone,

We did it! Another year is done and I’m halfway through my time at Marietta. I’m back at home and enjoying being able to visit the ocean’s shore as you can see behind me. 

I want to thank you so much for your support throughout the whole year. It hasn’t always been easy, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel thanks to the efforts on campus to keep everyone safe and going in the right direction, and the incredible support of The Long Blue Line. 

Before I go, I'd like to ask for your support just one more time. Gifts to the Marietta Fund are what makes having an incredible experience at MC possible — they allow us to have fun events like Doo Dah Day, hire the best professors, offer scholarships and more. Will you support students like me by making a gift, of any amount, before the end of the fiscal year, June 30th? It would mean so much to me, and it would be helping a current student in need. Give now at

It’s been a pleasure to be your ACA. I’ve really enjoyed getting to share my story with you and learn more about your story as well. Please stay in touch and stay active so we can keep growing and thriving together. Have a great summer!

April Update

Hi everyone! 

It's been a pleasure to be your ambassador this year, and I have some good and bad news to share. The good news is that we’ve gotten through this crazy time together and I am almost done preparing for my All Scholars Day presentations (which you can watch virtually here!). The bad news is that our time is almost up and this is my last regular update before I sign-off next month. With that in mind, now is the time to reach out! Let me know if you have any burning questions or things you want to see in my final video. 

Until next time,

Cole ‘23

P.S. Check out the new look of the Alpha Sig lobby in the background!

March Update

Hi everyone, 

It feels like my last update was a lifetime ago! Since then, we’ve celebrated a successful Day of Giving (thank you to everyone who made a gift!), made it through midterms and had our Spring Break Day. 

Let’s reconnect — send me a message and let me know what you’ve been up to over the last month or what you’re most looking forward to. Talk to you soon!

February Update

Hello all,

To celebrate being back on campus and the upcoming Day of Giving on February 14-15, I interviewed one of my favorite professors. Watch to learn about my and Dr. Linda Lockhart's favorite features of Marietta.

This year's Day of Giving is going to be our biggest celebration yet! The campaign will kick off on Sunday, February 14 at 12:01 a.m. and continue until February 15 at 18:35 (6:35 p.m. Eastern).

Our goal is to get 1,415 Pioneers to share their love by making a gift of any amount. This is a step up from the record-breaking 1,200 donors we had last year, but I know that with your help, we can do it!

When you share your love by making a gift, you're positively impacting current students, like myself. You're also helping your class and/or Greek chapter to compete for special prizes and you could be entered into exclusive raffles!

Also, students and professors have been working hard to host some special love-themed events for you. Visit to learn more and register for free.

I hope you're staying happy and healthy, and that you'll share your #Luv4MC​ on social media and during #MCGivesLuv​. Until then, Go Pios!

January Update

Happy New Year!

As I get ready for the spring semester, you can get ready for upcoming events at Marietta College.

While we won’t have fans at our games, you can cheer on the Pioneers by watching the live streams of all of our home games. You can even help make sure the stands still feel full by purchasing a fan cutout, and your face (or even that of a pet) can be with us in person. To learn more or purchase your fan cut-out, visit

We’re also just a month away from Marietta College’s Founders Day, which is also our annual Day of Giving. When you share your love on February 14-15, you’ll not only help support students like me, but potentially help your class or Greek chapter win some prizes! This is also a great (and easy) way to volunteer for MC – if you’d like to learn more about being involved, please email

December Update

We did it! It's winter break and finally the end of 2020. I hope all of you are doing well as we prepare for the Holiday season and the spring semester. Finals went well, thanks for all of the wishes regarding that.

For me, this year has been a hard one. But it has put a lot of things in perspective and has given me a greater appreciation for Marietta, family, and the holidays.

I would love to hear how this year has gone for you. Tell me about your holiday plans, your time at Marietta, or anything else you can think of.

Talk to you soon,

November Update

Hello! The end of the semester and Thanksgiving are approaching, which means I get to look forward to finals! Finals will spread out over 1.5 weeks rather than a week, but once they're over I get to go home, take a break, and enjoy some turkey with my family.

Thanksgiving also means thinking about what you're most grateful for. Personally, I'm most thankful for Alpha Sigma Phi and being able to do the radio shows on campus (check out our new Instagram account @MC_StudentMedia). Running two radio shows keeps me busy, but I really enjoy it. It helps keep me sane!

Moving on, I want to know what you were most thankful for when you were a student or what you're thankful for now! Plus, tell me about your holiday plans this year. Will you be able to spend time with your family? Are you stressing about cooking Thanksgiving dinner? Reply and let me know!

October 2020: (STAY)Homecoming, Virtual Stadium Sell Out, and Connections

Hello everyone,

First, I want to thank everyone who wished me luck and gave me advice on midterms! Your support gave me the little bit of oomph that I needed. 

Homecoming is this Friday and Saturday, and it will be completely virtual this year. I encourage you to sign up and check out the fashion show that I am in! You can also join us in our virtual stadium to cheer on the Pioneers by visiting

Something I've been thinking about lately is connections. With COVID-19 and being in different classes/groups than I was last semester, I've noticed a big difference in the people that I connect with most on a daily basis. So, I'm curious about some connections you have as a result of Marietta College. Who have you kept in touch with? Did your friend-group change a lot over time?

September: An Introduction

Hi everyone, I’m Cole Longcor and I'll be your student ambassador this year. As a sophomore triple major, I want to share what life at Marietta College is like today, especially with so many things being very different right now.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have, or send me your best advice on how to make the most of my time at MC!
