Introducing Justin!

Fall in Marietta is probably my favorite time of year, and not just because it’s football season! There’s something really unique about returning to a close-knit campus in a beautiful city like Marietta, and I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences with you this year as your student Ambassador. I hope you got my email!

I feel really fortunate to be a Pioneer. The academics at Marietta College are phenomenal. Our professors set high standards and help us develop a strong work ethic. The number of opportunities provided - whether they be internships, visiting speakers, or special education sessions – are unmatched. I know that all of these only exist thanks to the support of The Long Blue Line, and I’m grateful to be part of this community.

Your support matters to me and all of my classmates, and we’d like to invite you to make a gift today. You can use visit the give page, or call or text “DONATE” to 877.318.0990 to invest in our College and the futures of students like me.

Thank you for your support, and Go Pioneers!

While fall break is typically a time when most students go home, I remained on campus this year. While football did not allow me to really get a chance to go home, I also stayed because this IS my home. This is where I have spent the majority of the last four years, and this place is what will have the greatest impact on where the future takes me.

Besides the gorgeous landscape, and the people here, the environment that this college and the surrounding community provide is phenomenal. No matter the college, connections will be made. But only at Marietta will I be able to make meaningful connections, where its not a “I was just taught by this professor” but a “I WORKED with this professor”. The college allows us to develop transformational relationships with professors, not just transactional.

I also want to remind you about Homecoming, as I hope to see YOU there! I have been in contact with a few people about the possibility of meeting up for a drink or to grab something to eat, and I hope to hear from even more. If you have already reached out to me, I cannot wait to meet you, and if you haven’t reached out to me yet, please do! And finally, if you can't join us in person, I hope you'll join us online in our Virtual Stadium. When you buy a ticket with a gift of just $5 or more, you'll not only help support your favorite team, but you could even help us win up to $3,000 in prize money offered by a generous alum! Football is currently tied in fourth place, but I know we can move up the leaderboard with your support.

Thanks for your encouragement, and I hope to see you soon!

I cannot believe it is already November, it seems as if this semester is flying by. Football is over, and Thanksgiving break is next week. I am most thankful for my family and the opportunities Marietta College has provided me. I am also thankful for all of your donations, specifically those that have donated to the Pioneer Support Fund. With all of your support, we have raised in excess of $65K for the sisters of Alpha Xi Delta. Two of the sorority sisters actually join me in this video to update you all on how everyone is doing, so make sure you watch all the way through to hear from them personally. Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving, and I'll see you next month!
