“Initially, I was somewhat homesick and wanted to go home every weekend. Now, I hate the summer because I hate being away from school. Marietta College quickly developed into my home and a place I always want to be.”

An Introduction


My name is Robert Nelson and I am one of Marietta College’s new Ambassadors.

I am from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (McKees Rocks), and discovered this great school by being recruited for football. I am a strategic communications major, the head editor-in-chief of the Marcolian and a member of the American Advertising Federation.

You can find me on the field as #87; I play wide receiver. I love being a part of a football program that continues to improve and show growth in some form and I am looking forward to a successful season ahead. I’m blessed to be at a school that is so dedicated to success and I’m excited to share my story with you!

Welcome Robert or make a gift in his honor. Learn more about his fellow Ambassadors, Bella, Ashley and Orv.
