November Update

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a nice October and a great Halloween if you celebrated it. 

With it being November, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Thanksgiving is a time for us to remember and cherish the things we are grateful for. In this month's video, I talk about the many things I am thankful for on and off-campus such as my friends, my scouting family, and all the skills I’ve learned in life. I’m also thankful for YOU, The Long Blue Line, and the many friends and donors who have made gifts to help ensure we could stay on campus and in the classroom safely.

I want you to think about what you are thankful for, and tell me all about it! I'm also curious about how you are going to spend Thanksgiving this year during the pandemic. Will some traditions change? Or will it go on as normal? Let me know! Hope you have a great November!

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

Hello everyone! I hope you guys have been having an amazing month.

(Stay)Homecoming 2020 is quickly approaching, and there is an abundance of activities going on that we hope you guys log on to and be a part of! One thing that affects me, in particular, is the Virtual Stadium Sell-Out campaign. You can buy a ticket for just $5 and support your favorite Pioneer team (cough, cough, women's crew...) Get your ticket here:

Next, I want to talk about connections. Whether it is a connection you've made with a professor, coach, or friend here at Marietta or a connection you've made somewhere else, cherish that connection. I know I feared not being able to connect with people when I got here since I was coming from a different background, but it turns out I've been able to make connections with ease that I will likely keep for the rest of my life.

So, reach out to one of your college buddies that you haven't talked to in a while. Or email an old professor to see how they feel about teaching currently with COVID-19 and all. There are so many things you can do to make and grow and connections, so let's do them! Have a great October everyone!

September: An Introduction

Hello everyone!

My name is Michaela Donnelly and I will be your student ambassador this year. I am a first-year student here at Marietta College and I’m super excited to grow and be part of such a wonderful community. With having a very different-looking senior year of high school, I am happy to be back to some kind of “normal” for my first year of college. I’m so grateful to be able to have in-person classes, thanks to everything the College is doing to keep us safe. So far the transition has been smooth and I can only imagine all the good things to come!

I’m excited to get to know all of you so please don’t hesitate to reach out and introduce yourselves. Tell me why you chose to stay connected to MC, what you’re doing now, and any other fun things you may want me to know!
