Introducing Maria!

I’m really excited to be your student ambassador this year! One of the best parts of my experience at Marietta so far has been serving as Vice President of Alumnae Relations for my sorority, Sigma Kappa, and I’m looking forward to getting to know more members of The Long Blue Line. I hope you got my email, and that you’ll stay in touch throughout the year as I share my experience.

Speaking of those experiences, nearly everything I do at Marietta College – from my communication classes and interactions with professors, to activities like participating in our new Gardening Club – is made possible thanks to people like you who support The Marietta Fund. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the financial aid your donations provide.

Your support matters to me and all of my classmates, and we’d like to invite you to make a gift today. You can 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 encouragement!

I have really enjoyed getting to know so many alumni and friends these past few weeks! It’s been amazing getting to hear everyone’s stories and I also wanted to thank everyone for the amazing advice. It was a great form of motivation that really helped me get through midterms this year! Now as Fall Break is coming to an end, I am especially looking forward to Homecoming.

I cannot wait for both members of the Long Blue Line that I personally know, and the ones that I am currently getting to know, to return to Marietta College. I know that I am going to use this Homecoming as an opportunity to put faces to the names and build strong connections with everyone I get to meet! Don't forget to register for Homecoming if you're planning on returning to campus, and make sure your contact information is up-to-date. And if you can’t join in person, it would be amazing if you could join in the Virtual Stadium to support our Student Athletes! Thanks for your support, and Go Pios!!

This is my favorite time of year as the holiday season approaches, and I have so much to be grateful for this year, including YOU! I really enjoyed meeting many alumni during Homecoming, and I’m even more grateful for your support following the fire at the Alpha Xi Delta house earlier this month.

While none of the sisters were physically injured, they lost many of their belongings to the fire or related smoke and water damage. They have all moved into Marietta Hall so that they can stay together under one roof as they begin to recover, and your outpouring of support has raised more than $65,000 to help them replace items lost and access additional resources to help them. I want you to know how grateful we all are. I am so proud to be part of the Marietta College family, and I’d love to hear what you’re grateful for this season, too – please reach out to me any time!
