On Friday, October 14, 2016, William N. Ruud will be formally installed as Marietta College’s 19th president in ceremonies to be held in the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center’s indoor track. The academic procession begins at 10:00 a.m. and the inauguration will follow.
The ceremony will provide the occasion to welcome back to the College dozens of alumni from around the country, as well as dozens of others who will represent colleges and universities across the U.S. This day is also an opportunity to celebrate our College’s intellectual life, and to reflect on the future as we begin this new chapter at Marietta.
On behalf of Inauguration Committee, we hope you will join us in welcoming Dr. Ruud to the presidency of Marietta College and that together we can make his inauguration a permanent reminder that we are one community.
